Welcome !

Operations

ATC Services

  1. SAM Control Will provide radar service within all the airspace.
  2. Airport information will not be provided
  3. Approach procedures will not be provided
  4. Point 2 and 3 could be provided if a local APP controller is online and request to SAM FSS station some separation and a local restrictions.
  5. ATC services are not provided below FL245
  6. ATC services are not provided above FL600

ATC coordinations

All the FSS stations will control only the upper airspace (above FL245) with radar service (just like Eurocontrol do on VATSIM). When aircraft enter in a controlled CTR, the FSS station will transfer the aircraft to the local ATC online and viceversa. When aircraft are near to the limits of the FSS station, the aircraft will be transferred to the next FSS station or to the UNICOM frequency 122.80 if no other ATC is online. When the FSS station are controlling aircrafts and the local CTR position opens, the FSS controller should transfer immediately the aircrafts to the local ATC.
