Vectoring

Aircraft may be given specific vectors to fly in order to establish lateral separation. Unless it is self-evident, pilots should be informed of the reason why vectors are necessary.

When vectoring is completed, pilots will be instructed to resume their own navigation and given position information and appropriate instructions as necessary.

Occasionally an aircraft may be instructed to make a complete turn (known as  an orbit or a 360 degree turn) for delaying purposes or to achieve a required spacing behind preceding traffic.
