Contract Pilot Services with a Difference

FAA NOTAM (effective February 16, 2006), informs operators that the ICAO guidance to pilots for track offsets in contingency situations in oceanic airspace has been changed to 15nm.  This new guidance will apply to oceanic operations (including Atlantic and Pacific airspace).

NOTE: Prior to this harmonization, the track offset for in-flight contingencies (ICAO Regional Supplementary Procedures, Doc 7030) was 30nm in the North Atlantic (NAT) and 25nm in Pacific airspace.
