(2) Vector aircraft in noncontrolled airspace only on pilot request as an additional service.
(3) Vector an aircraft at or above minimum vectoring altitudes or the minimum IFR altitude
except as authorized for missed approaches, radar approaches, departures, special VFR (SVFR), and
NOTE: VFR aircraft not at an altitude assigned by ATC may be vectored at any altitude. It is the
responsibility of the pilot to comply with the applicable federal aviation regulations.
(4) Vector aircraft in airspace for which you have control jurisdiction, unless otherwise
(5) Vector an aircraft to permit it to resume its own navigation within radar coverage.
(6) Vector aircraft operating under SVFR only within control zones.
(7) Vector VFR aircraft at those locations where a special program is established, when a pilot
requests it, or when you suggest the vector and the pilot concurs.
b. Vector Methods.
(1) Specify the direction of turn, if appropriate, and the magnetic heading to be flown after
completing the turn.
PHRASEOLOGY: TURN LEFT (or RIGHT) HEADING (degrees).
(2) Specify a no-gyro vector as follows:
(a) Before issuing any vectors, inform the pilot of the type of vector.
PHRASEOLOGY: THIS WILL BE A NO-GYRO VECTOR.
(b) When issuing each turn instruction, specify the direction of the turn and when to stop the
PHRASEOLOGY: TURN LEFT (or RIGHT). STOP TURN.
(3) Specify, in group form, the number of degrees to turn and the direction of the turn when the
heading of the aircraft is unknown and time does not permit obtaining it.
