the aircraft operator or pilot. The aircraft must be listed as Group 1 in FAA Handbook 7110.65,
Appendix B, or the pilot must confirm that it is an STOL aircraft.
d. Anticipating Separation
Landing clearance to a succeeding aircraft in a landing sequence need not be withheld. This is
true only if you watch the positions of the aircraft and determine that prescribed runway separation will
exist when the aircraft cross the landing threshold. Issue traffic information to the succeeding aircraft.
EXAMPLE: "Delta forty-two cleared to land. Traffic is Eastern DC-9 over approach lights."
APPLY DEPARTURE SEPARATION
OPERATING ON THE SAME AIRFIELD
a. Same Runway Separation
Separate a leaving aircraft from a preceding leaving or arriving aircraft using the same runway
by ensuring that it does not begin takeoff roll until one of the following conditions exists:
(1) The other aircraft has left and crossed the runway end or turned to avert any conflict (Figure
Figure 2-14. Departure separation (same runway)
(2) If you can determine distances by referring to suitable landmarks, the other aircraft need only
be airborne if the following minimum distance (Figure 2-15) exists between aircraft:
