a. Approach Information
(1) You must issue altitude setting, ceiling and visibility (if
applicable), and any special weather observation. You also must issue
pertinent information on airport conditions necessary for safe aircraft
operations and lost communications as specified in FAA 7110.65F, para 5-
(2) Before the aircraft starts the final approach, inform the
aviator of the type of approach and the runway, airport, heliport, or
other point in which to make the approach. For surveillance approaches
before the final approach, specify the location of the map in relation to
the runway, airport, or heliport.
You also must inform an aircraft
making an approach to an airport not served by a tower that no traffic or
landing runway information is available for that airport.
b. Abnormal Approach Situations
Before an aviator makes a no-gyro approach, you shall inform
the aviator of the type of approach before issuing a vector and instruct
the aviator when to start and stop turns. You also shall instruct the
aviator to make half-standard-rate turns after turning onto final
approach and before reaching the approach gate.
(2) Radar Contact Lost
If the aviator has not started the final approach, clear the
aircraft to a correct fix or NAVAID for an instrument approach. If the
aviator has started the final approach but does not see the runway
environment, do one of the following:
(a) Instruct him to execute a missed approach if you
already told him how to do so.
(b) If you have not told the aviator how to execute a missed
approach, instruct him to climb to or maintain a specified altitude and
fly a specified course.
c. Landing Check
Advise the aviator to perform a landing check while the aircraft is
on the downwind leg. Advise him in time to complete the landing check
before turning onto the base leg. When the
