Radar flight following is the observation of a radar identified aircraft. This is engaged when the primary navigation of the aircraft is done by the pilot. Before radar flight following may commence, it is necessary to establish the identity of the aircraft that is under observation. Radar flight following may be achieved in one of several ways. These include the use of Secondary Surveillance Radar (SSR); through radar-comparison of the reported position of the aircraft in question; through transfer of radar identification; through observation of the aircraft as compared to a request to turn to a specific heading.
