given. Use ASR or the AZ portion of the PAR to conduct the approach; apply the ASR procedures
listed in FAA Handbook 7110.65F, Section 11. (These procedures were outlined in Lesson Two.)
When the PAR AZ is used, inform the pilot that mileage information will be from touchdown and at
those runways where specific minima have been established for PAR without glide slope. Inform the
pilot that the PAR AZ will be used for the approach.
PHRASEOLOGY: (when PAR AZ is used)
THIS WILL BE A SURVEILLANCE APPROACH TO RUNWAY SIX.
MILEAGES WILL BE FROM TOUCHDOWN.
THIS WILL BE A SURVEILLANCE APPROACH TO RUNWAY SIX USING
P-A-R AZIMUTH. MILEAGES WILL BE FROM TOUCHDOWN.
(a) Provide recommended altitudes on final approach if the pilot requests them. If
recommended altitudes are requested, inform the pilot that recommended altitudes will be given each
mile on final approach down to the last mile that is at or above the published minimum descent altitude
(MDA). The MDA published for the approach procedure is applicable in determining the point at which
recommended altitudes will be discontinued.
If the published MDA is 1,290 feet at an airport with an EL of 970 feet mean sea
level (MSL), altitude information is not given for the last mile because the
recommended altitude of 1,270 feet MSL (970 + 300 = 1,270) is below the MDA of
(b) If the EL portion of the PAR equipment is inoperative before starting a precision
approach, apply (2) above.
The procedures and phraseology used in conducting a normal PAR approach are in Appendix B.
When possible give transmissions in the sequence shown at the ranges indicated. Integrate control
instructions, as required, to conduct a safe approach. Advise the pilot when the aircraft is on course and
on glide path; give the aircraft's position at least once each mile from touchdown on the final approach.
