airport radar service area

Regulatory airspace surrounding designated airports in which ATC (air traffic control) provides radar vectoring and sequencing on a full-time basis for all IFR (instrument flight rules) and VFR (visual flight rules) aircraft. ARSA service includes IFR/IFR-standard IFR separation; IFR/VFR-traffic advisories and conflict resolution; and VFR/VFR-traffic advisories and, as appropriate, safety alerts. The ARSAs are depicted on VFR aeronautical charts. The term is redundant and has been replaced by Airspace Class C.
Airport obstruction charts (OC).
