The Air Traffic Controller's first priority is to _________.

separate aircraft and issue safety alerts

Provide additional services to the extent possible. Provision of additional services is contingent only upon higher priority duties and other factors, including ___________.

limitations of radar, volume of traffic, frequency congestion, and controller workload

Providing additional services is required __________.

when the work situation permits

Apply merging target procedures to all radar-identified _________ aircraft, regardless of altitude.


Merging target procedures are NOT required when aircraft are __________.

established in a holding pattern

Issue traffic information to all aircraft above 10,000 feet whose targets appear likely to merge unless the aircraft are separated by _________.

more than the appropriate vertical separation minima

When is it necessary to vector an aircraft to avoid merging with issued traffic?

When the pilot requests it.

What should you do if you observe an aircraft straying outside the outer fix holding pattern airspace area?

Assist the aircraft to return to the assigned airspace.

The purpose of traffic advisories is to alert aircraft to known or _________ Air Traffic.


What is the phraseology to advise an aircraft that previously issued traffic is NO longer a factor?


What is the correct phraseology to issue altitude information on unidentified traffic that is displaying a Mode C altitude of 6,500 feet?


Traffic advisories may be omitted when ________ .

omission is requested by the pilot

When describing radar-derived weather, do NOT use the word __________.


When a weather deviation CANNOT be approved as requested and the situation permits, you should ________.

suggest an alternate course of action

A bird activity advisory shall include the birds' _________.

position, species or size (if known), course of flight, and altitude

Unless visual observation or subsequent reports reveal that activity is NO longer a factor, continue bird activity advisories for at least ____ minutes after receipt of information from pilots or adjacent facilities.


Consider a Mode C altitude readout valid when it varies less than ______ feet from the pilot-reported altitude.


The two emergency conditions are distress and ________ .


A pilot who encounters a distress condition should declare an emergency by beginning the initial communication with the word "MAYDAY," preferably repeated _____ time(s).


If you are in communication with an aircraft in distress, you should transfer responsibility to another facility ______.

only if you feel that better handling will result

What phraseology is used to assign an emergency beacon code to an aircraft that is NOT radar-identified?


Consider an aircraft overdue when NEITHER radio NOR radar contact can be established and _____ minutes have passed since the aircraft's clearance void time.


When primary radar has failed, what condition(s) must exist before secondary radar may be used to conduct Airport Surveillance Radar (ASR) approaches?

What might you have an aircraft do to improve radar and/or radio reception?

Increase altitude.

What is the phraseology used to acknowledge and confirm receipt of a hijack code observed on radar?


If a VFR aircraft has already encountered IFR conditions, what would you do first?

Inform the pilot of the appropriate terrain/obstacle clearance minimum altitude.

Where would you position an escort aircraft relative to the hijacked aircraft?


What action should the controller take if it is determined that a VFR pilot is in IFR conditions and below the minimum obstacle/terrain clearance altitude?

Provide a heading or radial on which the pilot may climb to reach appropriate obstacle/terrain clearance at minimum altitude.

Which of the following techniques would be used when providing radar assistance to a pilot NOT qualified to operate in IFR conditions?

Avoid frequency changes.

The transponder code showing radio failure is ________.


When radar mapping is NOT available, one of the services that may be provided is vectoring to intercept _________ .
