1 ACTIONS AND PROCEDURES
1.1.1 The pilot of an aircraft subject to unlawful interference or the threat of unlawful interference must endeavour to advise ATS of the fact, together with details of any subsequent deviation from the current flight plan, and any other significant factors affecting the operation. This will enable ATS to give priority to the aircraft and alert organisations likely to be involved.
1.2.1 The following procedures should be followed:
- (a) switch transponder to code 7500 MODE A;
- (b) advise ATS of details in plain language if possible;
- (c) if use of radio is restricted, insert the phrase “CHANNEL SEVEN FIVE ZERO ZERO” into any RTF transmission after the aircraft’s callsign, if it is safe and practicable to do so.
