entering the NAM Region north of 65N must be planned in accordance with the NCA and/or NOROTS as appropriate. All of these linking structures are referenced in Chapter 3 of this Manual and account must be taken of any such routing restrictions when planning flights in this category.

4.2.12

The carriage of functioning HF communications is mandatory for flight in the Shanwick

Aircraft with only functioning VHF communications equipment should plan their route outside the Shanwick OCA and ensure that they remain within VHF coverage of appropriate ground stations throughout the flight. Theoretical VHF coverage charts are shown in Attachment 5. Such strict routing restriction may not apply in

all NAT Oceanic Control Areas.
