|Define 'Non-Radar Route'||A route on which an aircraft is able to determine its position, track and, consequently, the minimum IFR altitude, without the benefit of radar information.|
|Define 'Vector'|| A: A heading issued to an aircraft, for the purpose of providing navigational guidance by means of radar.|
B: To issue headings to an aircraft, for the purpose of providing navigational guidance by means of radar.
|Rules regarding Vectoring||Before vectoring an aircraft, ensure that it can be established on a non-radar route within radar coverage.|
|Vectoring - Terrain Clearance (M556.1)||Ensure that adequate terrain clearance is provided if you vector an aircraft off a non-radar route.|
|Vectoring - Terrain Clearance (M556.2)||Provide terrain clearance by requiring the aircraft to operate at an altitude that is at or above the minimum IFR altitude specified for the area within which the aircraft is being vectored.|
|Vectoring - Terrain Clearance (M556.2 Note 1A)||When vectored away from a non-radar route, aircraft may be unable to determine their exact position. In such cases, the controller is responsible for assigning altitudes that ensure obstacle and terrain clearance.|
