Skills and Techniques covered in VV Approach™

  • Vectoring principles and theory;
  • Separation of aircraft by radar/surveillance, and by the use of Vertical Separation. Wake Turbulence Separation is included. Separation Assurance is heavily emphasized;
  • Vectoring aircraft from anywhere in the Terminal Area to join a standard circuit leg for landing;
  • Vectoring aircraft correctly onto an Instrument Landing System;
  • Retention of aircraft within prescribed airspace boundaries;
  • Orderly sequencing of jet and prop-jet aircraft onto a common runway of any magnetic alignment and in any wind conditions using vectoring and speed control techniques to achieve prescribed landing spacing;
  • Techniques for ensuring separation of aircraft in the event of communications failure during the sequencing process.
