    Re: Salt Lake TRACON - S56

    Hey Guys,

    I know this thread isn't active, but thought I'd ask a specific question in regards to SLC and visuals.

    If SLC is in North Ops and IFR traffic is coming from LHO or BEARR arrivals, TRACON advises to expect vectors to the visual 34R, and traffic is light, can the IFR aircraft be cleared for the visual NORTH of the airport? Say 3-5NM North and above 10k if the pilot calls the field in site?

    A debate among some pilot friends of mine and I can't seem to find a clear answer in the .65's., nor in any of the forums here about visuals.

    Since I'm here in SLC, thought I'd ask in this thread first since it's more S56 specified.

    Thanks!

    Yes but it requires a point out to the tower. Tower usually has auto releases on departures climbing to 10k. West and south departures turn west under the downwind. Downwind altitude is 11k.
    Usually by the time that coordination is accomplished its not worth the hassle because you're in the final controller's airspace already and can be cleared for the visual.
    There are a myriad of airspace and rule nuances that come together in that specific situation.
    You can be cleared for a visual at any point that you have the airport in sight, but the controller is still responsible for separation between you and adjacent airspaces.
    Make sense?

    Any updates on S56?

    How is staffing?

    Steady level 10, or increasing or decreasing in traffic?

    Good facility to work at?

    Any updates on S56? I want to FAM here soon and am thinking of bidding, but it would be great to get some insight from anyone that is there now.
