ELLX AD 2.20  Local Aerodrome Regulations

1   GENERAL
1.1   Ground Surveillance - Use of Mode A, C and S Transponders

ELLX is equipped with an advanced ground surveillance system using Mode A and S.Operators intending to use the airport should ensure that Mode S transponders are able to operate when their aircraft are on the ground.

Pilots shall select XPDR or the equivalent according to specific installation, AUTO if available, not OFF or STBY, and the assigned Mode A code, if available:

  • from the request for push back or start-up, whichever is earlier;
  • after landing, continuously until the aircraft is fully parked on stand. When parked, Mode A code 2000 shall be set before selecting OFF or STBY.

Whenever possible, the aircraft identification (i.e. call sign used in flight) shall be entered as from the request for push back or start-up, whichever is earlier (through the FMS or the transponder control panel). Pilots shall use the ICAO format for aircraft identification, as entered in item 7 of the flight plan form (e.g. “LGL123”).

To ensure that the performance of systems based on SSR frequencies (incl. airborne ACAS units and SSR radars) is not compromised, ACAS shall not be selected before receiving clearance to line up. It should be deselected after vacating the runway.

Aircraft without assigned Mode A code or taxiing without flight plan, shall select Mode A code 2000.

1.2   Aircraft Code F

Aircraft code F are subject to a special permission. B747-8F are authorised to operate at ELLX. In case of B747-8 operations at ELLX, other B747 type aircraft may expect ATC induced intermediate holding positions during taxi due to wing tip clearance and separation requirements. At holding point RWY 24 on TWY A no parallel holding position will be allowed for B747 type aircraft due to same requirements.

2   TAXI REGULATIONS

When issued with taxi instructions, departing aircraft shall taxi as close as possible to the appropriate runway-holding position. Unless otherwise notified to ATC by the pilot, aircraft are expected to be ready for departure upon reaching the runway-holding position. General aviation aircraft departing from aprons P5 and P6 shall complete all pre-departure checks, including engine/power checks, before requesting taxi instructions to enter the manoeuvring area.

Aircraft with WTC H are not allowed to enter RWY 06/24 via intersection G, except when towed. All aircraft are still permitted to vacate at TWY G after landing.

Traffic landing on RWY 06 and vacating at TWY E or D1 shall await onward clearance before entering TWY B1 due to conflicting ground traffic in opposite direction.

3   APRON REGULATIONS

Aprons P1, P2 and P7 shall only be entered behind a follow-me car. Also, when the apron markings are not visible, aprons P1 and P2 shall only be exited behind a follow-me car. No control service provided on apron by ATC.

4   RUNWAY REGULATIONS
4.1   Minimum Runway Occupancy Time
4.1.1   Departure

Pilots should be ready for a rapid line-up according to ATC instructions.

Cockpit checks should be completed prior to line-up and any checks requiring completion whilst on the runway should be kept to a minimum required. Pilots should ensure that they are able to commence take-off roll immediately after receiving take-off clearance. Pilots not able to comply with the above requirements shall notify ATC as soon as possible.

4.1.2   Arrival

Landing aircraft shall vacate the runway expeditiously and are to ensure fully vacated before stopping.

5   SPECIFIC TRAFFIC REGULATIONS
5.1   Aircraft without Radio

Aircraft without radio are prohibited.

5.2   Glider Flights

Training flights are allowed: MON to SAT 0530-2100 (0430-2000); SUN and HOL 0700-2100 (0600-2000)

In addition, the following applies:

  • Training flights for multi-engine aircraft are only allowed: MON to SAT, HOL excl. 0530-2100 (0430-2000);
  • IFR training flights for aircraft unable to maintain 170 KIAS are only allowed: MON to SAT 0630-0800, 1100-1430 and 1800-2000 (0530-0700, 1000-1330 and 1700-1900); SUN and HOL 0700-1430 and 1800-2000 ( 0600-1330 and 1700-1900);
  • Training flights performing successive touch-and-goes in the traffic circuit are only allowed: MON to SAT 0700-2100 (0600-2000); SUN and HOL 0700-1100 and 1300-2100 (0600-1000 and 1200-2000);
  • Only one training flight is allowed in the traffic circuit at a time. Time slots shall be arranged via telephone with ELLX ARO (+352 47 98 23 01 0 or 1), starting at 0600 (0500) of the day on which the flight is planned to be executed.

RWY maintenance/inspection has priority over training flights.

5.8   Local Flights

Any flight departing from and arriving at ELLX without intermediate landing abroad is considered as a local flight.

Local flights are allowed: MON to SAT 0530-2100 (0430-2000); SUN and HOL 0700-2100 (0600-2000).

ELLX AD 2.21  Noise Abatement Procedures

1   GENERAL
1.1   “Chapter 2" Aircraft

In accordance with European Directive 2002/30, take-off and landing of aircraft noise certified according to the criteria of ICAO Annex 16, Chapter 2, are forbidden.

State and military aircraft are exempted from this prohibition.

1.2   Use of Reverse Thrust

Except for reasons of safety, aircraft crews using the airport must conform to all relevant noise abatement techniques laid down for the type of aircraft and appropriate to the operations undertaken.

Aircraft must be operated at all times in a manner designed to cause the least disturbance practicable in areas surrounding the airport. In particular, the use of reverse thrust should be limited to idle power wherever possible and higher power used only for reasons of safety or for compliance with operational instructions.

2   GROUND PROCEDURES

Engine run-ups shall only be conducted on the engine test area located on TWY I.

Except when specifically authorised by ANA, engine test runs are only allowed from MON to FRI between 0600 and 2000 (0500 and 1900), and on SAT between 0700 and 1900 (0600 and 1800). Engine test runs are prohibited on SUN and public holidays.

Ground idle runs are not considered to be engine test runs.

Engine run-ups are only allowed for aircraft meeting the standards of ICAO Annex 16. Volume 1, Chapter 3.

Engine run-ups on the engine test area on TWY I will not be allowed during LVP.

Aircraft performing engine run-up on TWY I must normally be positioned on a heading between 240° clockwise through 060° and additionally in a way that blasting along TWY I centre line towards RWY 06/24 is avoided.

3   ARRIVAL PROCEDURES

Aircraft performing a LOC/DME approach on RWY 06 shall cross 2 DME ILE at 1 810 FT QNH (650 FT QFE) MNM.

Aircraft performing a visual approach shall intercept the final approach leg not earlier than 6 NM from the threshold.

4   DEPARTURE PROCEDURES
4.1   General

The SID (see ELLX AD 2.22, § 3.2.1) constitute noise abatement procedures. It is therefore emphasized that pilots shall adhere to these routes as closely as performance permits. If unable to comply with these procedures, they shall advise ATC immediately.

4.2   Noise Abatement Take-off and Climb Procedures

Climb until 4 000 FT shall be performed with most noise abatement efficient aircraft setting if available, or at maximum climb gradient compatible with safety.

ELLX AD 2.22  Flight Procedures

1   GENERAL
1.1   Aerodrome Minima

2.3.2   Circling Approach

Circling approaches are prohibited.

3   IFR FLIGHTS (OUTBOUND)
3.1   Starting Procedures

Pilots shall call Luxembourg TWR on FREQ 118.100 MHZ in accordance with their slot (if any) and when ready to push and/or taxi immediately. ATC start-up and/or push-back clearances are based on the assumption that an average of 15 MIN is required for start-up, push-back, taxi and take-off manoeuvres. Start-up and/or push-back shall be performed without delay after reception of the respective clearance. An ATC departure clearance shall only be requested after start-up and/or push-back has been granted by ATC.

3.2   Departure Procedures
3.2.1   Standard Instrument Departures

SID have been established as shown on the SID charts (see ELLX AD 2.24) and as listed below. Pilots unable to comply shall inform ATC when requesting start-up clearance. ATC may deviate from these routes and pilots may expect radar vectors for separation reasons or in order to expedite traffic flow.

After take-off, aircraft shall immediately contact Luxembourg APP on FREQ 118.900 MHZ.

The initial turns are based upon 250 KIAS, AD ELEV (1 234 FT), a bank angle of 25° and a temperature of ISA+15°C.

DME distance information to assist aircraft in leading the turn onto the next track are based upon 250 KIAS, 6 000 FT ALT, a bank angle of 25° and a temperature of ISA+15°C.

Due to the risk of confusion between SID DIK and DISKI, pilots shall double-check that the correct SID has been entered in the FMS.

3.2.2   Climb Requirements

All traffic shall initially climb to 4 000 FT QNH with climb gradient 3.3% MNM, unless instructed otherwise by ATC.

4   LOW VISIBILITY PROCEDURES
4.1   Facilities and Equipment Available
4.1.1   Runways

RWY 24 is equipped with ILS and is approved for CAT II and III (minimum RVR is 125 M). If wind direction and speed require the use of RWY 06 (ILS CAT I only), LVP are not notified.

During LVP, arriving aircraft shall respect the following restrictions when vacating RWY 24:

  • TWYs D2, E or F: preferably to be used when vacating RWY 24;
  • TWYs B4, G or H: if planned to use, advise ATC as soon as possible;
  • TWYs C or D1: only usable on ATC instructions;
  • TWYs A or I: not usable.

Guided take-off:

  • RWY 06: not AVBL;
  • RWY 24: on request upon start-up.
4.1.2   Taxiways

The taxiways are equipped with centre line lights, except for TWY I and H.

TWY C and D1 shall not be used during LVP unless authorized by ATC.

ATC may use ground surveillance information to assist in monitoring aircraft and vehicles on the manoeuvring area. Any ground surveillance derived information is however to be considered as advice only.

4.1.3   Communications

Pilots will be informed by ATIS or ATC when LVP are in progress. The ATIS message will contain the phrase “LOW VISIBILITY PROCEDURES IN OPERATION. DEPARTING AIRCRAFT, USE CAT TWO THREE HOLDING POINTS. ARRIVING AIRCRAFT, LATEST RVR WILL BE GIVEN ON THE ATC FREQUENCY. CHECK YOUR MINIMA”.

In addition to the current readings for the landing runway and information on significant changes in surface wind, ATC will provide details of any unavailability of equipment relevant to LVP (NOTAM will be issued if the unavailability is expected to last more than 1 HR).

Pilots will be informed by ATC when LVP are terminated.

Pilots shall report when runway and taxiway are vacated and when approaching any CAT II/III holding points.

Pilots should be ready for departure at the CAT II/III holding point.

4.2   Criteria for Initiation and Termination of LVP

The preparation phase will start when visibility is at or below 1 500 M and/or ceiling is at or below 300 FT, and further weather deterioration is expected. The operations phase will start when RVR is at or below 800 M or ceiling/vertical visibility is at or below 200 FT.

LVP will be terminated when RVR increases above 800 M and ceiling/vertical visibility is higher than 200 FT, and a further improvement of the weather conditions is expected.

Note: The ILS sensitive area shall remain clear of vehicles until the visibility exceeds 1 500 M and the ceiling is higher than 300 FT.

4.3   Other Information

Any operator wishing to perform CAT II/III operations at ELLX shall apply in writing to obtain approval from the CAA.

Pilots wishing to practice a CAT II/III approach shall inform Luxembourg APP using the phraseology “REQUEST PRACTICE CAT II/III APPROACH.” They should be aware that protection of the ILS sensitive area is not guaranteed and no special ATC procedures will be applied.

During low visibility operations and provided adjacent airspace is available, arriving aircraft are typically vectored to intercept LVP at 10 NM final. Due to airspace limitations arriving aircraft may be vectored to be established at 8 NM final latest. Aircraft requiring a longer than 8 NM line-up shall inform ATC as soon as practicable to allow time for the necessary coordination with adjacent sectors.

The spacing between inbound flights established on the LVP is typically 10 NM, but may vary depending on actual weather conditions and runway contamination.

During LVP all guided take-offs shall be requested upon start-up, otherwise there is no LVP protection for departures.

During LVP reduced aerodrome capacity. Major delay should be expected.

5   VFR FLIGHTS
5.1   General

A flight plan is compulsory for all VFR flights to and from ELLX (see ENR 1.10, § 1.1).

The published inbound and outbound routes indicate the optimum routing with regard to safety and noise abatement. The indicated routes are compulsory and shall be followed as accurately as possible, unless otherwise instructed by ATC or necessary for the safety of the aircraft or flight. 2 000 FT AMSL are to be maintained as far as cloud separation permits.

Pilots should bear in mind that Prohibited Area ELP01 - DUPONT DE NEMOURS is located within the aerodrome traffic circuits to the south west of the aerodrome and extends from the surface up to 2 500 FT AMSL.

Centreline crossing closer than 11 NM from ARP should be done at 2 000 FT MAX. Aircraft unable to comply shall contact Luxembourg APP 118.900 MHZ.

5.2   Visual Reporting Points
