General Procedures

Flightplan Checking


When checking a flight plan make sure to check the following items:

  • Flight Rules (VFR/IFR)

  • Equipment (RVSM equipped/Mode S transponder). Mode S type of transponder is mandatory in the EHAA FIR

  • Departure Aerodrome (must be EHAM)

  • Cruising speed (should be filed in Knots [N] TAS)

  • Flight Level / Altitude (Conform Semi Circular system), below TA in altitude (Axxxx), above TL in flight levels (Fxxx)

  • Correct routing (first FIX for SID, when incorrect usually the whole route is incorrect. Do not just change the first FIX and departure)
    If required you can coordinate with approach for a vectored departure, do not clear for vectors without coordination.

  • Check the FP (Altitude/route) against the LOA's section and Quickviewfor City pairs between departure and arrival aerodrome and restricted routes (UN852).

 

Startup clearance

Startup clearance should contain:

  1. Startup approved

  2. Runway in use (with VFR)

  3. QNH (with VFR)

  4. ATIS check (either that his version is correct or the correct version)


IFR clearance

IFR clearance should contain:

  1. Cleared to .... (destination aerodrome)

  2. Departure SID (+additional instructions if required)

  3. SSR code (Squawk)

  4. ATIS check (either that his version is correct or the correct version)
     

Local Procedures

  • Initial climb shall be included in the clearance and is FL070 in general (FL060 for Dobak, Sompo and Temlu SID's, FL050 for Roldu SID's). Example: "Dobak1C departure FL060".

  • The runway shall not be mentioned in the IFR clearance, only in the startup clearance.

  • Startup and IFR clearance may be given directly after each other if the pilot requests startup and clearance.
