It seems like only yesterday I was hearing the pitter-patter of little feet walking across the control floor  :'( It's like all my little ATC-kids are growing up, even though you're way older than me  ;D

Congrats, Don!

Has anyone heard back from their applications yet? If not, any other word about what's going on?

It is possible to have a VFR-on-top or VFR clearance and be in the flight levels as the above rules have stated.  But again, it is not allowed in Class A airspace.  So where can I fly both VFR or VFR-on-top and be outside of Class A airspace?  Hawaii.

§71.33   Class A airspace areas.
(a) That airspace of the United States, including that airspace overlying the waters within 12 nautical miles of the coast of the 48 contiguous States, from 18,000 feet MSL to and including FL600 excluding the states of Alaska and Hawaii.

Great post, Dhruv.

Good question, Matt. Correct me if I’m wrong, but tower-applied visual separation effectively removes (where allowed) all other separation requirements (except your 3000, 4500, 6000, and intersections, etc.) and simply leaves the tower entirely responsible to ensure the aircraft don’t get within an unsafe proximity.

For example, ATL in real life on a visual approach day will let the IFR to IFR guys on the visual approach compress all the way down to 2 NM of separation at the threshold (provided the 3 to 2.5 for Radar is ensured prior to Tower handoff) by using tower-applied separation to make sure the guys don’t touch. They don’t go usually go less than 2 miles because by the time the lead aircraft exits the runway, the trailing aircraft is pretty darn close to the threshold, which if crossed would be a separation bust.
