Flight plan to alternate after missed approach

Recommended Posts

Hi Dave

Can P2A handle communication for a diversion to an alternate after a missed approach? If so, I assume a new flight plan would have to be input into P2A. Would a new clearance need to be requested? What other communication would be involved?

Any guidance would be gratefully received.

Regards Colin

P2A does not directly handle requests for diversion.  However, there are 2 ways to get a diversion:

1. If the alternate is relatively close by, after missed approach, request radar vectors for an approach at the alternate airport.  Something like "<CallSign> request radar vectors for ILS approach to runway 17L at Kilo Delta Foxtrot Whiskey".  That should get you vectors to the alternate.

2. Follow the same procedure as you would for restarting a flight after a crash.  

  •  Disconnect and Reconnect P2A
  • Enter and file a new flight plan to the alternate
  •  Report in to ATC Center with something like "<CallSign> climbing to FL 250"
  •  You should be given a squawk code and the flight should flow normally after that.

Adding diversion to alternate is on the list of future enhancements, but one of the above should let you get to your alternate.

Thanks Dave. Any idea when diversion to an alternate will be available?
