Notes ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ Aviation Safety & Security Management Air-ground Communications Failure As soon as it is known that two-way communication between aircraft and ATC has failed, separation shall be maintained between the aircraft having the communication failure and other aircraft, and the aircraft will be given freedom to continue to fly as per standard procedures. Assistance to VFR Flights A VFR flight reporting that it is uncertain of its position or lost, or encountering adverse weather conditions, should be considered to be in a state of emergency and handled as such. Navigation assistance to help the pilot determine the aircraft position may be provided by use of radar, direction-finder, navigation aids or sighting by another aircraft. Care must be taken when providing navigation assistance to ensure that the aircraft does not enter cloud. Other in-flight Contingencies Following are the some other in-flight contingencies: Strayed or Unidentified Aircraft The terms “strayed aircraft” means “An aircraft which has deviated significantly from its intended track or which reports that it is lost.” and “unidentified aircraft” means “An aircraft which has been observed or reported to be operating in a given area but whose identity has not been established.” As soon as an air traffic services unit becomes aware of a strayed aircraft, it shall take all necessary steps to assist the aircraft and to safeguard its flight including Navigational assistance and Radar Assistance.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
