Schiphol approach is responsible for arriving and departing traffic which pass through the EHAM TMA. When Schiphol tower is offline, approach will take over those responsibilities as well. When Rotterdam Tower AND Approach are offline, EHAM_W_APP takes responsibility of EHRD Tower and the traffic in the EHAM TMA part delegated to EHRD-APP. EHAA takes responsibility for EHRD Approach except the delegated area in the EHAM-TMA.
The main responsibility for Approach is to separate inbound and outbound IFR from each other and depending on the airspace classification separate IFR from VFR or inform IFR and VFR about each other. For approach separation should be at least 3nm or 1000ft.
Inbound IFR traffic can be delayed in three ways:
Holdings, ideally use published holdings, for non published holdings the inbound leg and turn direction have to be issued, one holding should take 4 minutes
Vectors, for steering behind a preceding aircraft or to delay by having the aircraft fly more miles
Speed control, most useful to create little amounts of additional separation or to maintain separation, this should not be used to generate a lot of separation
Arrivals shall either by flying a full procedural approach or by vectors be guided to a point from where to intercept the instrument approach or a point from where to fly a visual approach. When vectoring for an instrument approach traffic should be on a 30* intercept angle when cleared for the approach, a maximal angle of 45* is allowed if required but shall not be made standard.
Before being cleared for the approach the traffic shall be:
ILS: below the glideslope
NDB/VOR: at or descending to the published descend profile altitude in such way this altitude is reached in time.
ILS/NDB/VOR: On an intercept angle of ideally 30 and maximum 45 degrees.
Once traffic reports either established on the ILS, localizer, inbound course or inbound radial traffic shall be transferred to tower.
Departing traffic shall at soon as practicable be cleared to climb, without coordination approach shall not clear aircraft above the highest level of is TMA. Approach may clear traffic to leave his SID for safety however the traffic should be put back on the SID before the transfer to ACC, if coordinated with ATC traffic may deviate from the SID direct to a waypoint.
Schiphol Approach is responsible for the following airspace:
EHAM TMA 1 - 1500ft-FL095 class A
EHAM TMA 2 - 3500ft-FL055 class A
EHAM TMA 3 - 2500ft-FL095 class A
EHAM TMA 4 - 3500ft-FL095 class A
EHAM TMA 5 - FL055-FL095 class A
EHAM TMA 6 - 3500ft-FL095 class A
Traffic on the following SID's shall be transferred at or climbing to FL090. If the requested cruise level is lower, then on or climbing to cruise level. free of conflict in order of writing:
