What Does and Does Not Supercede an Existing RADAR Vector

What Does:

  1. Resume own navigation

  2. Proceed on Course

What Does Not:

  1. Changing your request and then trying to do whatever you want as fast as possible before approach can respond.

  2. Expect Vectors for a different runway than at the beginning.

  3. You reach your hold altitude.

  4. You check in for the fourth time.

  5. You were given vectors by another frequency then directly handed off (the vectors still apply)

“Expect Vectors” when already under existing vectors means wait until new vectors are given just as with every other vector ever. It doesn’t mean “woot, bolt for the cone!”


My favorite is when you give them their ILS clearance and they immediately switch to tower.
