CT MESSAGE

 An EDCT time generated by the 

ATCSCC to regulate traffic at arrival airports. 
Normally, a CT message is automatically transferred 
from the traffic management system computer to the 
NAS en route computer and appears as an EDCT. In 
the event of a communication failure between the 
traffic management system computer and the NAS, 
the CT message can be manually entered by the TMC 
at the en route facility.
