Training flights (incl touch-and-go, stop-and-go and multiple approaches) are allowed from MON to SAT (HOL excl) between 0800 and 1900 (0700 and 1700). Maximum two aircraft for touch-and-go will be accepted simultaneously. ATC will endeavour to alternate the circuits to be flown.

Helicopter training is limited to maximum four circuits per hour. Helicopter ground training may only take place at heli 2 spot, after prior permission from the Airport Authority has been obtained.

Following training activities are forbidden:

  • local training flights of MIL jet aircraft (transport aircraft excl);
  • training flights of aircraft with MTOW exceeding 50 T (unless prior permission has been obtained from the Airport Authority);

5.9   Aircraft Movement to and from North Side

All aircraft movement during night and RVR below 1 500 M shall be marshalled to and from the RWY via TWY E or G.

EBAW AD 2.21  Noise Abatement Procedures

1   GENERAL

Aircraft operating to or from EBAW must be noise certificated according to ICAO Annex 16.

Aircraft with MTOW below 2 000 KG, performing touch-and-go should have a maximum noise level of 76 dB (CAA certified). These aircraft need prior approval from the Airport Authority.

The use of reverse thrust should be kept to a minimum, compatible with the safety of the aircraft.

2   GROUND PROCEDURES
2.1   Engine Tests

Engine test runs in the open air and without silencers may only take place between 0700 and 1800 (0600 and 1700) and on the condition that a previous authorization has been obtained from the Airport Authority.

Idle thrust engine test runs in the open air and without silencers must be restricted to the very minimum. A prior permission from the Airport Authority is required.

The Airport Authority has the right to stop or restrict all ongoing tests in the event of violation of airport regulations or circumstances arising that necessitate such a decision.

3   ARRIVAL PROCEDURES

NIL

4   DEPARTURE PROCEDURES
4.1   Noise Abatement Take-off and Climb Procedures

Using full take-off thrust climb with the maximum gradient compatible with safety until passing through 800 FT QNH. Then reduce thrust so as to maintain V2 + 15 KT and climb at a rate of 1 000 FT/MIN until 3 000 FT QNH. Above this altitude, resume normal climb procedure.

EBAW AD 2.22  Flight Procedures

1   GENERAL
1.1   Aerodrome Minima

Except when authorized by the CAA or in case of emergency, a pilot-in-command shall not take off below the following minima:

  • RWY 11: 400 M RVR;
  • RWY 29: 150 M RVR.

For specific landing minima: see instrument approach charts (EBAW AD 2.24).

2.2.4   Instrument Approach Procedures

If the meteorological conditions permit a visual straight-in or a direct approach on RWY 11, aircraft shall not intercept the approach slope of the PAPI (3.5°) below 1 700 FT AMSL. When cleared for a visual approach on RWY 29, aircraft shall not intercept the final approach path below 1 000 FT AMSL.

2.2.5   Missed Approach

Unless instructed otherwise by ATC, the missed approach procedures as published on the instrument approach charts (see EBAW AD 2.24) shall be followed.

3   IFR FLIGHTS (OUTBOUND)
3.1   Starting Procedures

In order to allow ATC units to co-ordinate ATC clearances, pilots shall request start-up 10 MIN before it is expected that the aircraft will be ready to request taxi instructions.

The ATC clearance issued upon this initial call is based on the assumption that, from the time of readiness, an average period of 10 MIN is needed for start-up, taxi and take-off manoeuvres.

Consequently, any call made deliberately in advance of the 10 MIN required here above and made without reasonable assurance of being ready in time, may result in disruption of the departure sequence and cause delay for the operators.

3.2   Departure Procedures
3.2.1   Standard Instrument Departures

SID have been established as shown on the SID charts (see EBAW AD 2.24) and as listed below. Pilots unable to comply shall inform ATC when requesting start-up clearance.

Note: ATC may deviate from these routes.

3.2.2   ATC Climb Requirements

When taking off from RWY 29, a minimum PDG of 5.2% has to be maintained until leaving 600 FT QNH. If unable to comply with this climb gradient, pilots shall advise ATC in advance.

Pilots-in-command of departing aircraft routing via SPI - AMASI shall select a climb profile in order to be able to cross SPI at FL 240 or above. Flights unable to meet this climb requirement may expect routing via SPI-LIRSU-AMASI.

4   LOW VISIBILITY PROCEDURES
4.1   Facilities and Equipment Available
4.1.1   Runways

RWY 29 is approved for low visibility take-off when RVR ≥ 150 M.

The runway is equipped with markings, threshold lights, edge lights, end lights and centre line lights (15 M spacing in two electrical circuits).

4.1.2   Taxiways

During the preparation phase and the termination phase taxiing will be done by preference on TWY A, B and F.

During the operations phase taxiing will only be authorized on TWY A, B and F.

4.1.3   Communications

Pilots will be informed of the start and termination of the LVP by RTF.

4.2   Criteria for the Initiation and Termination of LVP

The preparation phase will start when visibility or RVR (whichever is lower) falls below 800 M and further deterioration is expected. The operations phase will start when RVR falls below 550 M.

The operations phase will be terminated when RVR is ≥ 550 M and a continuing improvement is anticipated. The termination phase ends when the RVR or visibility (whichever is lower) reaches 800 M.

4.3   Other Information

During the operational phase the movement of traffic on the manoeuvring area is limited to one aircraft at a time, guided by a follow-me car. Aircraft will be guided from aircraft stand to the runway holding point and (after clearance from Antwerpen TWR) further to the line-up position.

After the follow-me car has reported vacating the runway, the pilot will be instructed to contact the air frequency and report “ready for departure”. The next aircraft for departure may only start its (guided) taxi when the preceding departure has reported being airborne.

5   VFR FLIGHTS

Before entering Antwerpen CTR, VFR flights must establish and maintain two-way radio communications with the designated ATC unit on the appropriate frequency. They must comply with ATC instructions.

5.1   Inbound and Outbound Traffic
5.1.1   General

Radio is compulsory.

The altitude to enter, to leave or to fly within the CTR will be instructed by ATC. Unless otherwise instructed by Antwerp TWR, pilots shall use the predetermined VFR routes and they shall enter and leave the CTR via the visual reporting points on these routes.

5.2   Local Flights
5.2.1   General

Radio is compulsory.

5.2.2   By Day

Local VFR flights shall remain in the aerodrome traffic circuit depicted on chart AD2 EBAW VAC.02 and shall be operated at an altitude of 1 000 FT AMSL MNM.

5.2.3   At Night

Minima for local VFR flights at night:

  • ceiling: 1 500 FT (450 M)
  • ground visibility: 5 KM

Such flights shall remain within 3 KM from the ARP and continuously in sight of the TWR. They shall be operated at an altitude of 1 500 FT AMSL MNM.

Only two aircraft will be given authorization for night flight at the same time.

5.2.4   Take-off from RWY 11

Aircraft taking off from RWY 11 shall maintain runway heading until reaching 700 FT AMSL and comply with the prescribed aerodrome traffic circuit.

5.2.5   Landing on RWY 29

When on final approach for RWY 29 and until touchdown, VFR flights shall not descend below the glide slope indicated by the PAPI.

6   HELICOPTER FLIGHTS

See chart AD 2 EBAW-VAC.03

7   RADIO COMMUNICATION FAILURE

If an aircraft does not succeed in landing within the 30 MIN normally allowed to make its approach and landing, it must leave Antwerpen CTR on a track of 309° MAG at 2 000 FT QNH or below and land at the first suitable aerodrome where the meteorological conditions permit a visual approach and landing.

When rapidly changing weather conditions make it inadvisable to include a weather report in the ATIS broadcast, the weather data are omitted and replaced by the phrase “MET REPORT OMITTED DUE TO RAPID CHANGES”. The omitted data can be requested from ATC.

Pilots are requested to listen to the ATIS broadcast prior to the first contact with ATS. When establishing communication with the relevant ATS unit, the pilot shall acknowledge receipt of ATIS message with the phrase “INFORMATION ... (alphabetical designator) RECEIVED”. ATS will confirm the validity of the received alphabetical designator. If the designator has changed meanwhile, only the actually valid designator will be given.
