All aircraft must conform to the following procedures.
These procedures may at any time be departed from to the extent
necessary for avoiding immediate danger.
Every operator using the airport shall ensure that at all times
aircraft are operated in a manner calculated to cause the least
disturbance practicable over all parts of the island.
Unless ATC otherwise authorizes, Noise Preferential Routing and
Procedures specified in the following tables shall apply to all
aircraft approaching, landing, going around or taking off in accordance
with the ATC clearance and shall apply in both VMC and IMC.
Take-off procedures - runway 09 and 27 - climb straight ahead
to at least 1500 ft aal or 3 DME which ever is the earliest before
turning on course.
Special VFR/VFR Flights - take-off - aircraft
proceeding on a clearance at or below 1000 ft QNH, continue straight
ahead until clear of the coastline before turning on course. Aircraft
climbing to higher altitudes/flight levels, climb straight ahead
to at least 1500 feet QNH or 3 miles DME, whichever is the earlier
before turning on course.
Aircraft carrying out visual approaches should proceed as follows
MTOW 5700 Kgs or less-
Join the final approach at not less than and maintain 836 feet
QNH ( 500 feet QFE) until intercepting on the glidepath PAPI indications.
MTOW greater that 5700Kgs-
Join the final approach before crossing the coastline. Any aircraft
overflying the Island to position on final approach must do so
at an altitude of not less than 1500 feet QFE.
Jet Aircraft Procedures
The Noise Preferential Routeings and Procedures specified above
will be used except that on 'going around', aircraft operating
under IFR will, unless otherwise instructed, carry out the published
missed approach procedure. Aircraft operating under VFR/SVFR will
carry out a missed approach procedure as instructed by Air Traffic
Training flights by approved ‘quiet’ jet aircraft may be permitted between 0800-2000 (winter), 0700-1900 (summer), Monday to Saturday inclusive
(details from ATC)
All aircraft are to avoid overflying the Princess Elizabeth Hospital (2 nm ENE of the aerodrome) at less than 1000 ft agl.
