Aviation Safety Letter 1/2004

To the Letter - MANOPS cleared.

In ASL 4/2003, in response to a letter concerning the use of the words "cleared" and "clear" in ATC air/ground communications, the ATC Manual of Operations (MANOPS) was quoted on a section as applicable to "ground vehicles" only. The reference, the word "cleared" in conjunction with authorizations or instructions for aircraft to taxi or for equipment, vehicle or personnel operations. Mr. Arthur van Maurik may have gotten the wrong impression.
