Uncontrolled Airport Operations Reference Material
« on: March 30, 2013, 01:33:51 pm »
This NOTAM details procedures for operating in an uncontrolled airport environment in the United States. For BVA’s purposes, an uncontrolled airport is any airport which would normally be uncontrolled as well as any controlled airport that is uncontrolled due to ATC availability. 

At uncontrolled airports, aircraft use standardized flight patterns and radio communications to operate safely without the coordination and traffic advisory assistance of a controller. Uncontrolled airport procedures include communications and entries to and exits from the traffic pattern. Uncontrolled airport procedures are designed to give pilots maximum awareness of other aircraft operating in the area. If all pilots follow the recommended procedures, aircraft will be able to safely merge into and out of the traffic flow without posing a threat to each other.
