ATC Procedures on Hold

 - August 20, 2012, 4:20 PM

The FAA has made a last-minute decision to cancel Notice JO 7110.584, which included new instructions for procedures such as “Climb via,” “Descend via” and some speed adjustments. The changes, which had been due to take effect on August 15, stem from concerns by the U.S. agency about the adequacy of pilot and controller briefing material. The FAA will notify the industry when it has established a revised date.
