during the PAR approach. It is not uncommon for a pilot to request the actual published DH for a
particular airport or runway. When the pilot specifically requests the DH, the controller shall provide
the published DH.
PHRASEOLOGY: PUBLISHED DECISION HEIGHT, FIVE-ZERO-ZERO, OVER.
(3) Should a pilot request and receive the published DH, the pilot must also be informed when he
actually reaches the published DH.
n. Position Advisories.
(1) Continue to provide advisory course and glide path information until the aircraft passes over
the landing threshold. (FAR Part 91, paragraph 91.116, outlines pilot responsibilities for a descent
below DH.) Inform the pilot when he is passing over the--
(a) Approach lights.
PHRASEOLOGY: OVER APPROACH LIGHTS.
(b) Landing threshold. Inform him of any deviation from course.
PHRASEOLOGY: OVER LANDING THRESHOLD, SLIGHTLY RIGHT OF COURSE.
o. Approach Completion. After the approach is completed, issue communications transfer
instructions. Delay these instructions slightly until the aircraft is on the landing rollout to preclude
diversion of the pilot's attention during transition and touchdown.
PHRASEOLOGY: CONTACT TOWER ON ONE-TWO-TWO POINT FIVE AFTER LANDING.
p. Elevation Failure. If the EL portion of PAR equipment fails during a precision approach--
(1) Discontinue PAR instructions and tell the pilot to take over visually or, if unable, to execute a
missed approach. If the pilot executes a missed approach, apply (2) below.
PHRASEOLOGY: NO GLIDE PATH INFORMATION AVAILABLE. IF RUNWAY NOT IN
SIGHT, EXECUTE MISSED APPROACH; CONTACT CAIRNS APPROACH.
ON ONE-TWO-FIVE POINT FOUR, OVER.
(2) If a surveillance approach (airport surveillance radar (ASR) or PAR without glide slope) is
established for the same runway, inform the pilot that a surveillance approach can be
