Separation Distances

Hi to all the Atc-ers here~

Some questions I always wonder:

1. What is the minimum separation (in terms of NMiles/Altitude) allowed by your book between 2 aluminum flying tubes in the approach area of an airport like KLIA?
2. same question above, but on the outer control zones.

terima Kasih!

hrmm.. i'm not an approach/departure guy, but i've been involved in approach simulator execises and approach layout setup.. i try by best to answer..

1. like KLIA, approach airspace is from 2500ft to FLV140, consist of two airspace structure, TMA (terminal control area) & CTR (Control Zone). minimum seperation is 3Nm, but most of the guys will do 5Nm. this because they have to cater bout weather, departure from KLIA, Subang & Simpang.. 1000ft apart with no closing speed. when establish on a ILS, acft is cleared for approach on a same level, about 20Nm from TDZ.

2. For outer control zones, it depend on location bro... just name the location, maybe i can specify it.. like bukit jelutong area, it's not a approach path, but when B737 holding, it sure hit the area less than what the onboard alltitude indicator show.. unless they have radio altitude indicator. :Big Grin:

how many terms of separation do we have? just literal@lateral and altitude right?

These distance are so long and it is difficult to calculate it exect.
