Emergency Declaration
Revision: 02 Feb 2022

Mayday. A distress situation, grave and imminent danger threatens, requiring immediate assistance. Initiate distress radio communications with the term “mayday” repeated three times.

Pan-Pan. An urgent situation that requires timely but not immediate assistance. Urgent situations may not be immediately perilous, but may become so if allowed to continue. Preference is given to aircraft declaring “pan-pan,” but emergency protocols will not be activated. Initiate urgent radio communications with the use of the phrase “pan-pan” repeated three times.
