In this lesson you will learn to control aircraft in a radar environment.
You will effectively control IFR arrival and departure aircraft, provide radar
approach information, and identify-aircraft using radar procedures.
You are manning the arrival (feeder) control position at an air traffic control
(ATC) radar ground controlled approach (GCA) facility.
You will properly identify aircraft and vector to final approach according to
standards set forth in the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Handbook
The material in this lesson was derived from the following publications:
FAA Handbook 7110.65E.
The ability to properly identify aircraft in a radar environment is very important. This procedure must
be mastered in order to perform the arrival or feeder controller duties necessary to ensure safe and
orderly traffic flow within.
