ATCF Managers and supervisors are responsible for maintaining and supervising the
use of logs, files, and records and are also tasked with preparing facility reports and
providing input to update facility manuals and air operations manual.
Facility Logs, Manuals, and Reports
An ATCF has many different logs, manuals, and reports with specific purposes and
connections to facility operations.
Daily Operations Log
Each branch of an ATC facility shall maintain a daily operations log on the Visual
Information Display System (VIDS). If VIDS is not available, a paper or electronic FAA
Form 7230-4 shall be used. This log should be maintained by the supervisor on duty
and shall contain the following:
2. Time of all entries in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC)
3. Signature of supervisor on duty
When an electronic FAA Form 7230-4 is used, the
supervisor assuming responsibility for the watch shall sign
on with the time and their name, e.g., ―1430 J. Smith on.‖
Entering their name serves the same purpose as signing
the certification statement at the bottom of the form. If
printed, the supervisor responsible for the watch at the time
of printing shall sign and date the certification statement at
the bottom of the form.
4. The first entry in the REMARKS section of each day s Daily Record of Facility
Operation shall indicate the supervisor responsible for the watch and shall be
used to specifically record the operational status of the facility (e.g., equipment
outages, runway or airspace status, or coordinated routes/procedures). The use
of Carryover from Previous Log (CFPL) is not authorized. The last entry on each
day s form shall indicate the Close of Business (COB). Consider midnight local
time or facility closing time, if earlier, as the close of the day s business.
