REQUEST FULL ROUTE CLEARANCE- Used
by pilots to request that the entire route of flight be
read verbatim in an ATC clearance. Such request
should be made to preclude receiving an ATC
clearance based on the original filed flight plan when
a filed IFR flight plan has been revised by the pilot,
company, or operations prior to departure.


REQUIRED NAVIGATION PERFORMANCE
(RNP)– A statement of the navigational performance
necessary for operation within a defined airspace.
The following terms are commonly associated with
RNP:
a. Required Navigation Performance Level or
Type (RNP-X). A value, in nautical miles (NM), from

the intended horizontal position within which an

aircraft would be at least 95-percent of the total flying
time.

b. Required Navigation Performance (RNP)

Airspace. A generic term designating airspace, route

(s), leg (s), operation (s), or procedure (s) where

minimum required navigational performance (RNP)
have been established.

c. Actual Navigation Performance (ANP). A

measure of the current estimated navigational

performance. Also referred to as Estimated Position

Error (EPE).

d. Estimated Position Error (EPE). A measure of
the current estimated navigational performance. Also
referred to as Actual Navigation Performance (ANP).

e. Lateral Navigation (LNAV). A function of area
navigation (RNAV) equipment which calculates,
displays, and provides lateral guidance to a profile or
path.

f. Vertical Navigation (VNAV). A function of area

navigation (RNAV) equipment which calculates,
displays, and provides vertical guidance to a profile
or path.

RESCUE COORDINATION CENTER- A search
and rescue (SAR) facility equipped and manned to
coordinate and control SAR operations in an area
designated by the SAR plan. The U.S. Coast Guard
and the U.S. Air Force have responsibility for the

operation of RCCs.
(See ICAO term RESCUE CO-ORDINATION
CENTRE.)

Pilot/Controller Glossary

RESCUE CO-ORDINATION CENTRE [ICAO]- A
unit responsible for promoting efficient organization
of search and rescue service and for coordinating the
conduct of search and rescue operations within a
search and rescue region.

RESOLUTION ADVISORY-A display indication
given to the pilot by the traffic alert and collision
avoidance systems (TCAS II) recommending a
maneuver to increase vertical separation relative to an
intruding aircraft. Positive, negative, and vertical
speed limit (VSL) advisories constitute the resolution
advisories. A resolution advisory is also classified as
corrective or preventive
RESTRICTED AREA-

(See SPECIAL USE AIRSPACE.)

(See ICAO term RESTRICTED AREA.)

RESTRICTED AREA [ICAO]- An airspace of
defined dimensions, above the land areas or territorial

waters of a State, within which the flight of aircraft

is restricted in accordance with certain specified

conditions.

RESUME NORMAL SPEED- Used by ATC to
advise a pilot to resume an aircraft's normal operating

speed. It is issued to terminate a speed adjustment

where no published speed restrictions apply. It does

not delete speed restrictions in published procedures

of upcoming segments of flight. This does not relieve
the pilot of those speed restrictions, which are
applicable to 14 CFR Section 91.117.

RESUME OWN NAVIGATION- Used by ATC to
advise a pilot to resume his/her own navigational
responsibility. It is issued after completion of a radar
vector or when radar contact is lost while the aircraft
is being radar vectored.
(See RADAR CONTACT LOST.)

(See RADAR SERVICE TERMINATED.)

RESUME PUBLISHED SPEED- Used by ATC to
advise a pilot to resume published speed restrictions
that are applicable to a SID, STAR, or other
instrument procedure. It is issued to terminate a speed
adjustment where speed restrictions are published on
a charted procedure.

(See RADIO MAGNETIC INDICATOR.)
