changed from a surveillance approach (SA) to an instrument flight system (instrument landing system
[ILS]) approach. The time of 41 was inserted in Block 16 showing the aircraft was cleared for an ILS
approach at 1141. Two checkmarks are now in Block 17 indicating that the flight data controller relayed
the information change.

FINAL CONTROLLER POSITION
a. Handoff Acceptance. Ensure the radar indicator is properly aligned for the approach type
anticipated (ASR or PAR). Observe the target being pointed out by the arrival controller. Declare radar
contact when the radar target is verified on azimuth.
b. Final Controller Responsibility. The final controller is responsible for maintaining radar contact
with the aircraft after handoff and for aligning the aircraft with the extended runway centerline. This is
easily accomplished by accurate vector headings. In the case of no-gyro aircraft, issue timed turns to
achieve accurate vectors.
c. Communications Check. On an initial contact with the final controller, ask the pilot for a
CONTROLLER. HOW DO YOU HEAR ME?
d. Missed Approach Procedures. Except for USAF aircraft, before an instrument flight rule (IFR)
aircraft starts final descent for a full-stop landing and weather reports indicate that any portion of the
final approach will be conducted in IFR conditions, issue a specific missed approach procedures
approved for the radar approach being conducted.
