3. FINAL CONTROLLER
a. The final controller will request landing clearance as soon as possible after the handoff from the
arrival controller is complete. If the final controller sees that it will be a short handoff (less than 6
miles), he could request the landing clearance before the handoff from arrival.
b. The final controller will provide final approach guidance in the same fashion as a routine
approach, unless the pilot requests otherwise. An emergency aircraft does not require special treatment
on final, because the controller is expected to successfully complete all approaches.
