I am delighted to announce the publication of our Oceanic Control document.


I would like to thank Kieran Hardern for the time he has spent putting this invaluable document together.  


Kieran would like to thank George Wright, Jamie Fox, Barrie Joplin and Chris Pawley for their extensive proof reading, corrections and suggestions. 
Also thanks to Martin Bergin and Jean-Francois Desrosiers for their input regarding procedures and content.
The document can be found here.
I hope that you find it useful.

Is there still a requirement to pass Mach number in a position report? The last few trips I've done didn't involve a single one.

I'm presuming now because all the separation is time based rather than speed based, therefore there is no requirement to pass it.

According to the examples in NAT 007, Mach numbers are not included in position reports :)


From the document:

“Position, Swissair 100, on 8831, RESNO at 1235, Flight Level 330
Estimating 56 North 020 West at 1310, 56 North 030 West Next”

      I have been looking around the forum and website and have been unable to find any documentation relating to Gibraltar (save for a letter of agreement with VATSPA, dated February 2012). As I imagine that the single letter I have found will be full of out of date information, does anybody know where I can get documentation or EuroScope files for Gibraltar?

      Just wondering if there is a standard heli clearance for aberdeen?
      I'm assuming i'd hold them short of the HALS, then VFR clearance would be via HMR X published departure route N/A alt 1500 sqk xxxx???
      then entry is also via published arrival route?
      Also, is the phraseology "HALS 05" or "runway 05??"

      Hi all, particularly those who control Gatwick,
      I have been on London a few times in the last weeks where controllers have asked pilots if they are able to accept the new NOVMA departure which replaced both the conventional and RNAV KENET SIDs from runway 26L. Can I please ask that if they are unable (due to an out of date AIRAC), that you do not then route aircraft via SAM SIDs instead, as having filed a KENET, this take them in a completely different direction? If they only have the old KENET for 26L, KENET is fine.
      08R is of course a different story, since KENET conventional SIDs still exist, but not the RNAV (#KENET1Z). So if someone has the IMVUR1Z departure, this has preference over both the old KENET and SAM SIDs. If they do not have the IMVUR departure, please clear on either KENET or SAM.
      May I also suggest that if the SID is no longer published on charts, it might be pertinent to remind the pilot of the initial climb restriction for the old SID? (It will be the same as the new one)
      In sum:
      Filed Routing
      Active Runway
      New Routing
      Not updated AIRAC? Then clear on…
      #KENET2M* / #KENET1X
      NOVMA L620 SAM
      IMVUR N63 SAM
      * old SIDs will be prefixed with a # in EuroScope
