In addition to basic radar service, terminal radar service area
(TRSA) has been implemented at certain terminal locations.
TRSAs are depicted on sectional aeronautical charts and
listed in the A/FD. The purpose of this service is to provide
separation between all participating VFR aircraft and all IFR
aircraft operating within the TRSA. Class C service provides
approved separation between IFR and VFR aircraft, and
sequencing of VFR aircraft to the primary airport. Class B
service provides approved separation of aircraft based on
IFR, VFR, and/or weight, and sequencing of VFR arrivals
to the primary airport(s).
