Flashcards in Radar Transition Deck (45):
1

Radar strips are system generated and almost all have what?

CIDs (which is another way to identify an aircraft), Beacon codes
(beacon codes will not appear on strips that do not have a
transponder), ground speed

2

Most departure and destination airports will have what in front of them
on the strip?

K – only airports with three letter identifiers can have K’s
(VORTAC’s remain the same and 0M8 remains the same)

3

What replaces pilot estimates and fix progression times?

Radar contact

4

In ZAE radar scenarios strips are only generally posted for what?

Non radar flights such as arrivals and departures for GWO VKS
0M8and aircraft below radar coverage

5

What is a STAR?

A published procedure used at large airports to standardize
routings and aid in sequencing arrivals to an airport

6

What is the furthest ATC will generally clear an aircraft direct to?

Any fix that is immediately prior to the STAR name or is closer

7

When is prior coordination needed on a departure to ZFW/ZHU?

When departure point is less than 5 minutes flying time

8

What must be done when an aircraft will cross the boundary in a
climb or descent to ZFW or ZHU?

The transferring controller must initiate the hand off and then
APREQ the climb/descent with the sector controlling the altitude
the aircraft is assigned and affect a point out if required to the
sector controlling the altitude through which the aircraft is
transitioning

9

Can transponder codes be changed on initial contact without
coordination with ZHU and ZFW?

Yes provided both facilities are operating under ERAM

10

What is done for an aircraft at or above FL240 that wants to land at
an airport within 75 miles?

Transferring center shall initiate coordination for a lower altitude
with the appropriate low sector for all aircraft at and above
FL240 proposing to land at airports within 75 NM of the center
boundary and ensure point outs are made

11

Inter and Intra facility AIT with ZFW and ZHU should be in accordance
with?

7110.65

12

Coordination can be reduced to ___minutes when using automated
systems with ZHU and ZFW.

5

13

How will ZHU send us aircraft landing VKS or JAN terminal area?

X center boundary at or below FL230 descending to 11000 or 7
for prop/turbo

14

How must ZAE send aircraft to ZHU landing AEX or ESF?

X center boundary at or below FL230 descending to 13000

15

How must ZAE send aircraft above 6,000ft and landing KHEZ or
KMCB to ZHU?

X boundary at or below 12,000 descending to 6,000 unless
coordinated

16

How must GWO request releases?

Specifying the departure airport in the order they will depart

17

GWO must issues clearances utilizing what data?

• Data received from FDIO (A/c may be cleared as flied unless
ZAE has issued alternate routing or FRC is in remarks
• Advise A/C to expect requested altitude 10 min after departure
• GWO must advise ZAE if the aircraft does not depart within 3
minutes

18

What must ZAE do when issuing a release time to GWO?

Shall assign an altitude to maintain and any alternate
instructions as necessary

19

JAN APCH owns what airspace during radar operations?

• 10,000 and below

20

How does ZAE deliver A/C to JAN APCH?

• Within the confines of the arrival transition areas-jets X boundary
at 11,000 and 250 kts –props X at 7,000- jets below 10,000
require coordination

21

When does JAN APCH assume control of arrivals and for what?

After hand off and com change for descent, speed reduction,
and turns direct the airport

22

If holding is required ZAE must?

Clear subsequent arrivals to the appropriate holding fix and JAN
APCH cannot transition the aircraft beyond the clearance limit
until 10,000 or below

23

How must JAN APCH clear departures?

• Via routings which ensure A/C transition within the confines of
the departure transition areas
• Aircraft requesting 11,000 or above to 10,000 and expect filed 10
mins after departure
• Aircraft requesting 10,000 or below to requested altitude

24

What is the TCP for JAN APCH and ZAE departures? And what
separation must JAN provide?

Boundary and 5 miles constant or increasing

25

How are over flights worked with JAN APCH?

Cleared via route/altitude on strip (IAFDOF does not need
coordination) and routes that are clear of R931A

26

What must ZAE do when air aircraft will cross JAN boundary in a
climb or descent?

• Initiate hand off and the APREQ if final alt is at or below 10,000
• Effect point out before A/C transitions approach airspace

27

What happens when an aircraft requests lower when landing within
75 nm of the boundary?

The transferring facility must initiate coordination for lower with
the appropriate sector for all aircraft at FL240 and higher and
also must ensure that all point outs are made to all affected
sectors

28

When must arrival information be forwarded to GWO tower?

Sequence change and or aircraft are issued an approach to a
runway other than tower specified runway in use

29

What happens when a UTM is received?

Manual coordination for the flight plan data and verify the flight
plan data to the receiving facility within three minutes of the TCP
estimate

30

When is a communication change made for GWO tower?

Prior to FAF or 5 miles for a VA or prior to entering the surface
area unless otherwise coordinated

31

What must ZAE assign when issuing a release to GWO?

Altitude to maintain and any alternate routing or other
instructions as necessary

32
