07JAN2022 (Security Update)

Previously, many of the programs required to be used to control on the network, required the user to “Run As Administrator” in order to ensure ease of use and compatibility with each other. Running programs as Administrator is generally considered unsafe but, we had no way of running our programs efficiently without it.

The ZLC IT department has now investigated these issues and have found that the previous reasons to run programs as admin are no longer valid. The one exception to this is AFV and the IT team has developed a way around it.

As of this day, ZLC no longer supports members running their applications/programs as “Administrator”.

To assist in the transition from “Run as Administrator”, a link will be provided below in the Action Required section.

  • ORIENTATION CBTs
    • Added “Safe Computer Management” section
    • All CBTs instructing users to install programs now have a reference to the Safe Computer Management CBTs.
    • AFV & Monitoring CBT updated with new instructions for how to launch AFV without Admin Privileges.
  • ZLC Workstation Auto-Setup Batch File
    • Will now launch AFV without Privilege Elevation automatically.

Click HERE for latest 7110.65

1-2-6 & 2-1-9 & 10-6-4 & 10-7-1 & 10-7-5
ABBREVIATIONS

The acronym “NOTAM” now stands for “Notice to Air Missions” (previously “Notice to Airmen”).

4-3-2 & 5-8-1
DEPARTURE CLEARANCES WITH HEADINGS

You are no longer able to assign a heading with a takeoff clearance within the DVA (Diverse Vector Area) if the pilot has been cleared via a SID.

  • EXCEPTION – When the departure route description on a radar SID contains the phrase, “Fly assigned heading,” “as assigned by ATC,” or similar phrases, with a published range of headings in the route description, assign headings or vectors as needed within those headings in the published range until reaching the MVA/MIA.
    NOTE All departures at KSLC satisfy this requirement. i.e. SLC TWR may still issue a heading (per the SOP) to aircraft on a SID.

4-3-2.C.2
DEPARTURE CLEARANCES, ODP WITH VCOA

Pilots may now request, or controllers may now assign, a Visual Climb over Airport (VCOA) as part of an ODP clearance. An instruction must be issued to remain within a certain number of miles from the airport when approving the VCOA. Phraseology examples are also provided in the 7110.65 4-3-2.C.2.

5-3-3
SQUAWK CODE ASSIGNMENT WITHOUT ALTITUDE REPORTING

The old phraseology for when an aircraft’s transponder is turned off, SQUAWK (4 digit discrete code), AND IF YOUR ALTITUDE REPORTING EQUIPMENT IS TURNED OFF, SQUAWK ALTITUDE.”, is now just “SQUAWK (4 digit discrete code), SQUAWK ALTITUDE.

9-2-13
MILITARY AERIAL REFUELING ALTITUDE ASSIGNMENT

The old phraseology for instructing an aircraft to maintain a refueling altitude, “MAINTAIN REFUELING LEVEL (altitude)” is now changed to the standard block altitude phraseology, “MAINTAIN BLOCK (altitude) THROUGH (altitude)”.

      • The old VRC (.VORS) command now belongs to vERAM.
        • You may use .vVORS for this same function when using VRC.
      • .FIELDS now only works in vERAM.
        • You may use .vFIELDS for this same function when using VRC.
      • All Airport Specific commands for DPs and STARS now are prefixed with the airport ID (FAA, not ICAO). The idea is to prefix the DP/STAR code with the airport ID.
        Examples:
        • The ISR for the KSLC airport ARCHZ departure for the Clearance Delivery phase of flight:
          .SLCARCHZDEL
        • The PDC command for the Gowen Departure out of KBOI when Departure is with UNICOM and there was a change to the filed flight plan by ATC:
          .TPDCBOIGOWENUCHG
  • Added:
    • “Down Time” .DT command in preparation for upcoming Directive Changes.
    • Removed the following old commands due to deconfliction with newer commands and preparation for VRC retirement:
      • .CD, .CA, .SD, .SA, .G, .T, .DG, .GD, .DT, .TD, .AG, .GA, .AT, .TA
    • Removed “Change to Departure” phraseology from the .MILCT command.
      • NOTE: This phraseology should only be used with Military towers, not Civilian.
  • vERAM
    • “NAV” Filter now contains “ZLC Significant Points” indicated by a plus symbol. TDM displays the point name.

24MAY2021 (7110.65z Change Brief)

7110.65z Change Briefing for vZLC (VATSIM)
These changes effective 17JUN2021
Click HERE for latest 7110.65

4-3-4
DEPARTURE RESTRICTIONS, CLEARANCE VOID TIMES,
HOLD FOR RELEASE, AND RELEASE TIMES

Even though it was standard practice to issue a release, hold for release, or release time with non-towered IFR departures, it is now a REQUIREMENT.

5-3-4 & 5-4-5 & 5-4-6
TRANSFER OF RADAR IDENTIFICATION AND RESPONSIBILITY

Multiple items were removed from these sections to remove ambiguity. Controllers only need to understand that the controller initiating a handoff is responsible for any and all coordination required with that handoff.

Example: John was controlling SLC_CTR and got a handoff of an aircraft from MSP_CTR that was going to enter DEN_CTR airspace for a little while before entering SLC airspace. In this scenario, John was able to accept the handoff without first coordinating a Point-Out with DEN_CTR because it was MSP_CTR responsibility as the initiating controller to conduct that coordination in a timely manner, and ideally prior to initiating a handoff to SLC_CTR.

5−9−6 & 5-9-7 & 5-9-8 & 5-9-9
SIMULTANEOUS APPROACHES

Changes in this section do not affect ZLC operations but for informational purposes: this change removes all references to airport field elevations as a condition to be met to conduct simultaneous independent approaches and creates new provisions to account for reduced runway centerline spacing (RCLS) when high update rate surveillance is used. This may be something that is useful with the new VATSIM “Velocity“ feature that will be released in the near future.

7−4−4
APPROACHES TO MULTIPLE RUNWAYS

When referencing Terminal (vSTARS) operations and relying on the primary target symbols for separation, the FAA now allows a “Fusion” target with that requirement. We do not yet have Fusion simulation but we might get it in vSTARS after VATSIM releases their ‘Velocity’ update.

This section is now also easier to read due to editorial changes by the FAA.

The paragraphs in this section with most significant changes ( 7-4-4 c.2) do not apply to any airports within ZLC Airspace, but for informational purposes: This change adds procedures for when aircraft are approaching from the same side of the airport. It also spells out the procedures when aircraft are approaching from opposite base legs, or when one aircraft is turning to final, and another aircraft is established on an adjacent runway centerline.
