read: 

“Cleared to Johnston Airport, Scott One departure, 

Jonez transition, Q-One Forty-five, Climb via SID except 
maintain flight level one eight zero.” 

NOTE

 

In Example 4, the aircraft must comply with the Scott One 
departure lateral path and any published speed and 
altitude restrictions while climbing to FL180. The aircraft 
must stop climb at FL180 until issued further clearance by 
ATC. 

5. 

(An aircraft was issued the Suzan Two departure, 

“climb via SID” in the IFR departure clearance. After 
departure ATC must change a waypoint crossing 
restriction). The clearance will be: 

“Climb via SID except cross Mkala at or above seven 

thousand.” 

NOTE

 

In Example 5, the aircraft will comply with the Suzan Two 
departure lateral path and any published speed and 
altitude restrictions and climb so as to cross Mkala at or 
above 7,000; remainder of the departure must be flown as 
published. 

6. 

(An aircraft was issued the Teddd One departure, 

“climb via SID” in the IFR departure clearance. An 
interim altitude of 10,000 was issued instead of the 
published top altitude of FL 230). After departure ATC is 
able to issue the published top altitude. The clearance will 
be: 

“Climb via SID.” 

NOTE

 

In Example 6, the aircraft will track laterally and vertically 
on the Teddd One departure and initially climb to 10,000; 
Once re-issued the “climb via” clearance the interim 
altitude is canceled aircraft will continue climb to FL230 
while complying with published restrictions. 

7. 

(An aircraft was issued the Bbear Two departure, 

“climb via SID” in the IFR departure clearance. An 
interim altitude of 16,000 was issued instead of the 
published top altitude of FL 190). After departure, ATC is 
able to issue a top altitude of FL300 and still requires 
compliance with the published SID restrictions. The 
clearance will be: 

“Climb via SID except maintain flight level three zero 

zero.” 

NOTE

 

In Example 7, the aircraft will track laterally and vertically 
on the Bbear Two departure and initially climb to 16,000; 
Once re-issued the “climb via” clearance the interim 
altitude is canceled and the aircraft will continue climb to 
FL300 while complying with published restrictions. 

8. 

(An aircraft was issued the Bizee Two departure, “climb 

via SID.” After departure, ATC vectors the aircraft off of 

the SID, and then issues a direct routing to rejoin the SID 
at Rockr waypoint which does not have a published altitude 
restriction. ATC wants the aircraft to cross at or above 
10,000). The clearance will read: 

“Proceed direct Rockr, cross Rockr at or above 

one-zero thousand, climb via the Bizee Two departure.” 

NOTE

 

In Example 8, the aircraft will join the Bizee Two SID at 
Rockr at or above 10,000 and then comply with the 
published lateral path and any published speed or altitude 
restrictions while climbing to the SID top altitude. 

9. 

(An aircraft was issued the Suzan Two departure, 

“climb via SID” in the IFR departure clearance. After 
departure ATC vectors the aircraft off of the SID, and then 
clears the aircraft to rejoin the SID at Dvine waypoint, 
which has a published crossing restriction). The clearance 
will read:

 “Proceed direct Dvine, Climb via the Suzan Two 

departure.” 

NOTE

 

In Example 9, the aircraft will join the Suzan Two departure 
at Dvine, at the published altitude, and then comply with 
the published lateral path and any published speed or 
altitude restrictions. 

7. 

Pilots cleared for vertical navigation using the 

phraseology “climb via” must inform ATC, upon 
initial contact, of the altitude leaving and any 
assigned restrictions not published on the procedure. 

EXAMPLE

 

1. 

(Cactus 711 is cleared to climb via the Laura Two 

departure. The Laura Two has a top altitude of FL190): 
“Cactus Seven Eleven leaving two thousand, climbing via 
the Laura Two departure.” 

2. 

(Cactus 711 is cleared to climb via the Laura Two 

departure, but ATC changed the top altitude to16,000): 
“Cactus Seven Eleven leaving two thousand for one-six 
thousand, climbing via the Laura Two departure.” 

8. 

If prior to or after takeoff an altitude 

restriction is issued by ATC, all previously issued 
“ATC” altitude restrictions are canceled including 
those published on a SID. Pilots must still comply 
with all speed restrictions and lateral path require-
ments published on the SID unless canceled by ATC. 

EXAMPLE

 

Prior to takeoff or after departure ATC issues an altitude 
change clearance to an aircraft cleared to climb via a SID 
but ATC no longer requires compliance with published 
altitude restrictions: 

“Climb and maintain flight level two four zero.” 

NOTE

 

The published SID altitude restrictions are canceled; The
