FM 3-04.303: AIR TRAFFIC SERVICES FACILITY OPERATIONS, TRAINING, MAINTENANCE, AND STANDARDIZATION
Official US Army Field Manual in Acrobat PDF file format.
This publication provides instructions, standards, and guidance to operate and manage United States (U.S.) Army air traffic control (ATC) facilities and units. It is intended for use by all Active Army, Army National Guard, U.S. Army Reserve, Department of the Army (DA) civilians, and contract personnel who perform ATC duties for the U.S. Army. All standards, policies, and procedures in this manual are mandatory, according to AR 95-2.
This field manual supplements applicable DA, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) publications to be used in providing air traffic services. When the U.S. Army provides ATC services in overseas areas, deviations from these standards may be necessary to conform to foreign government regulations. Deviations shall be outlined in an agreement between one of the following—
• Theater commander and the host government.
• Host government military commanders and U.S. Army commanders.
• Host government ATC authorities and the U.S. Army commanders.
• Host government ATC authorities and U.S. Army ATC authorities.
Combat support ATC services performed to support aviation mission requirements may also dictate deviations from established standards. Such deviations shall be approved in writing by an O-6 or higher.
