General

Much of the phraseology used in area control is of a general nature. However, many instructions used in area control (particularly where radar is not available) are related to specific conditions in order to maintain aircraft separation.

The following examples provide a cross-section of phraseology used in area control. They may be varied, or added to, by combining their component parts according to the requirements of the prevailing traffic situation.
