Voice communication procedures and controller-pilot data link communications procedures To be developed III i 1. Table A shows the origin of amendments together with a list of the principal subjects involved and the dates on which the PANS-OPS and the amendments were approved by the Council and when they became applicable.
It also outlines the various parameters on which the criteria in Volume II are based so as to illustrate the need to adhere strictly to the published procedures in order to achieve and maintain an acceptable level of safety in operations.
It provides the basic guidelines to States, and those operators and organizations producing instrument flight charts that will result in uniform practices at all aerodromes where instrument flight procedures are carried out.
It is the responsibility of the operator to provide contingency procedures for abnormal and emergency operations. In some cases, the terms are defined in other ICAO documents. A list of abbreviations and acronyms is also provided. The material contained in Volume I was developed from criteria contained in Volume II and prepared for the use of flight operations personnel and flight crew. Minimum flight altitudes for each ATS route are determined and promulgated by each Contracting State in accordance with Annex 11, Chapter 2, 2.
It is the responsibility of the operator to ensure that the performance requirements of Annex 6 are met by the provision of contingency procedures. In , the Obstacle Clearance Panel OCP was created to update these procedures for application to all types of aeroplanes taking into account requirements for subsonic multi-jet aeroplanes and technical developments with respect to standard radio navigation aids. As a result of this work, instrument approach procedures were completely revised.
The criteria were amended in to include simplified en-route criteria. Section 8 — Procedures for use by helicopters Conditions under which the criteria in Part I may be applied to helicopters are specified in this section, which was revised at the third meeting of the HELIOPS Panel to include provisions on operational constraints on helicopter descent gradient and minimum final approach airspeeds.
As a result of the fourth meeting of the HELIOPS Panel, specifications concerning flight procedures and the obstacle clearance criteria for use by helicopters only are included in this section. For related material, see Annex 6. They formerly appeared as Part 1 of the Regional Supplementary Procedures Doc and had previously been approved by the Council for use in the majority of ICAO regions as supplementary procedures.
Part 1 of Doc now contains only regional procedures which are supplementary to the procedures contained in this document. The incorporation of these procedures in the PANS-OPS was approved by the Council in on the understanding that this action was not to be construed as a decision of principle on the question of flight levels or on the relative merits of metres or feet for altimetry purposes. Subsequently the Council approved the definitions of flight level and transition altitude.
To comply with Amendment 13 to Annex 5, the primary unit of atmospheric pressure was changed to hectopascal hPa in The operating procedures are intended to provide international standardization for the safe and efficient use of SSR and to minimize the workload and voice procedures for pilots and controllers.
While the latter are adopted by the Council in pursuance of Article 37 of the Convention and are subject to the full procedure of Article 90, PANS are approved by the Council and are recommended to Contracting States for worldwide application.
However, with a view to facilitating their processing towards implementation by States, they have been prepared in a language which will permit direct use by operations personnel. While uniform application of the basic procedures in this document is very desirable, latitude is permitted for the development of detailed procedures which may be needed to satisfy local conditions.
In those cases where the use of an alternative non-SI unit is permitted, the non-SI unit is shown in brackets immediately following the primary SI unit. In all cases the value of the non-SI unit is considered to be operationally equivalent to the primary SI unit in the context in which it is applied.
Unless otherwise indicated, the allowable tolerances accuracy are indicated by the number of significant figures given and, in this regard, it is to be understood in this document that all zero digits, either to the right or left of the decimal marker, are significant figures. Table A.
