and Lahore FIRs. Lahore FIR incorporates Pakistan airspace North of scope 300 North while
Karachi FIR incorporates Pakistan airspace south of scope 300 North just as those segments of
high oceans (upto 2330N) where the obligation regarding arrangement of ATS rest with

Area Control Centers :

The services in respective FIRs are given by Karachi and Lahore Area Control Centers (ACCs).
Karachi ACC is additionally subdivided into 4 control segments (East, west, North and South)
while Lahore ACC has 03 control areas (East, West Upper and West Lower).

Route help offices They are situated at air terminals across the country to give fundamental
navigational direction to pilots. The offices comprise of three principle components:

i)The Non Directional Guide (NDB) and High Recurrence Omni Directional Range (VOR) show
the heading to air terminals for flying machine.

ii)The Separation Estimating Gear (DME) demonstrates the separation among airplane and air

iii)The Instrument Arrival Framework (ILS) demonstrates the ideal coast incline, which helps
land the flying machine at the centerline of the runway.

Administrators using Pakistan airspace/Air terminals: notwithstanding Pakistani administrators,

the administrations of Pakistan ANS are being used by 19 worldwide carriers at 04 noteworthy
air terminals of Pakistan for example Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad and Peshawar though 88
timetable administrators are using the administrations while overflying Pakistan airspace.

Q#4 Briefly explain the water ways of Pakistan

Sea. Ending at the Arabian Ocean, the incomparable Indus the Indus one of the longest rivers in
the world, and the volume of its Waterway depletes the whole nation, except for Balochistan’

activities as 98 per cent of the entire foreign trade is

alternate to the Gulf ports while serving as trans¬
shipment/transit port. The port is connected with the
airport road by a 5-km long road. Once complete, will
eventually handle dry cargo vessels of 100,000 DWT
