terminal VFR radar service

terminal VFR radar service
A program instituted to extend the terminal radar services provided instrument flight rules (IFR) aircraft to visual flight rules (VFR) aircraft. The program is divided into four types of services: basic radar service, terminal radar service area (TRSA) service, Class B service, and Class C service. The type of service provided at a particular location is contained in the Airport/Facility Directory.
i. Basic radar service. These services are provided for VFR aircraft by all commissioned terminal radar facilities. Basic radar service includes safety alerts, traffic advisories, limited radar vectoring when requested by the pilot, and sequencing at locations where procedures have been established for this purpose and/or when covered by a letter of agreement. The purpose of this service is to adjust the flow of arriving IFR and VFR aircraft into the traffic pattern in a safe and orderly manner and to provide traffic advisories to departing VFR aircraft.
ii. TRSA service. This service provides, in addition to basic radar service, sequencing of all IFR and participating VFR aircraft to the primary airport and separation between all participating VFR aircraft. The purpose of this service is to provide separation between all participating VFR aircraft and all IFR aircraft operating within the area defined as a TRSA.
iii. Class B service. This service provides, in addition to basic radar service, approved separation of aircraft based on IFR, VFR, and/or weight, and sequencing of VFR arrivals to the primary airport(s).
iv. Class C service. This service provides, in addition to basic radar service, approved separation between IFR and VFR aircraft, sequencing of VFR aircraft, and sequencing of VFR arrivals to the primary airport.
