IVAO-NL runway system

This system is mandatory to follow. For EHAM runways are selected based on real runway usage as described below, for the airports EHRD EHGG EHEH and EHBK the runway is selected based on METAR wind and shown on the bottom of the page.

It is the tower controllers responsibility to select the runway(s) to be used and inform the other controllers of this. In absence of the tower controller runway(s) to be used are selected in order by:
  1. approach,
  2. radar
  3. ground
  4. delivery.

Runway selection


If the Real runway configuration indicates only two runways (one departure, one arrival) those runways shall be used on IVAO. However the real runway configurations on Schiphol sometimes consist of 3 main runways (runway 04/22 not counted). On IVAO only 2 main runways (one arrival/one departure) shall be used unless authorized by NL-Staff. The tables below will show which runway to use in different configurations.

If the configuration in use is NOT shown in the table below atc shall select one departure and one arrival runway from the runway's used in real.

If there is an inbound peak at Schiphol the bold runway should be chosen over the other runway

06 + 36R 36L
18R + 18C 24
18R + 18C 18L
36R + 36C 36L
27 + 18R 24
27 + 36C 36L
18R + 22 24
18R + 22 18L

If there is an outbound peak at Schiphol the bold runway should be chosen over the other runway
