Before starting their engines pilots shall request start-up clearance from Beek Delivery.

Pilots of aircraft intending to taxi on the taxiways shall obtain a clearance from Beek TWR.

Aircraft not maintaining two-way radio communication and intending to taxi on the apron must obtain prior permission from the airport authority.

6 RESTRICTIONS FOR INTERSECTION TAKE-OFF

In general, an intersection take-off via TWY E2, W3 and W4 is only allowed for operational reasons. Furthermore the following restrictions apply for an intersection take-off via TWY W3 and W4:

RWY 03 (W4) or RWY 21 (W3 and W4):

  • Single engine MTOM <= 6000 KG. No push propeller or jet engine (turbo fan).
  • Multi engine MTOM <= 2000 KG. No push propeller.
7 GROUND HANDLING

Due to security reasons, handling is compulsory for all non based aircraft at Maastricht Aachen Airport.
For handling companies see EHBK AD 2.23 paragraph 4.

8 USE OF APU

The APU should be shut down as soon as practicable following actual in-block time, but not later than 15 MIN after parking brakes set. Departing aircraft may start APU no earlier than 15 MIN prior to actual off-block time in order to start engines.

For exemptions: PPR via airport authority, TEL +31 (0)43 358 9750.

EHBK AD 2.21 NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

1 ARRIVALS

Full reverse thrust should not be used due to noise abatement. Full reverse thrust shall only be used when required for safety reasons.

EHBK AD 2.22 FLIGHT PROCEDURES

1 INSTRUMENT DEPARTURE PROCEDURES
1.1 Introduction

The instrument departure procedures are based on ICAO Annex 2 and on ICAO Documents 4444-ATM/501 (PANS-ATM), 7030 (SUPPS) and 8168-OPS/611 (PANS-OPS). With respect to procedures extending outside the Maastricht TMA special arrangements have been made between Beek APP/TWR and the appropriate German and Belgian ATC units.

1.2 Instrument departure procedures
1.2.1 Start-up permission

Pilots of aircraft must have obtained start-up permission from ATC before starting their engines. A request for start-up shall be made to Beek Delivery after all preparations for departure have been made (doors closed etc.) and shall include:

  • aircraft identification (e.g. TRA2345).
  • position (e.g. opposite tower).
  • ATIS information (e.g. information "J").
  • flight rules (e.g. IFR).
  • destination (e.g. Malaga).
  • request start-up (request start-up).

Due to the short flying time to the FIR boundary, pilots of aircraft departing direction Belgium and Germany may request start-up permission before all preparations have been made, indicating the time at which they will be ready to start engines: "...... destination ..... ready to start engines at ......".

Permission for start-up will be issued as soon as possible after the request has been made to Beek Delivery. The pilot shall be able to comply with the start-up and taxi permission, since ATC planning of outbound traffic (involving en route clearance and co-ordination with adjacent ATC units) is based on the start-up time. Any delay in start-up or taxiing shall be immediately reported to ATC. In case of indefinite delay the probable duration of the delay will be given.

During the hours of the ATIS broadcast no MET information will be issued to departing aircraft except RVR (see EHBK AD 2.18).

1.2.2 En route clearance
1.2.2.1 Contents

The en route clearance will be issued after start-up clearance has been given by Beek Delivery. An en route clearance contains:

  1. Clearance limit: airport of destination.
  2. Standard instrument departure (SID).
  3. Level instructions if applicable.
  4. SSR code.
  5. Departure instructions if applicable.
  6. CTOT if applicable.

Example of an en route clearance: "TRA2345 cleared to Malaga, OLNO 2A Departure, squawk 0121, slot 25".

1.2.2.2 Standard instrument departures

The instrument departure procedures are laid down in standard instrument departures (SIDs). SIDs are designated in accordance with ICAO Annex 11. SID designation is composed of the following elements:

  • a basic indicator, i.e. a significant point.
  • a validity indicator, i.e. a number from 1 to 9 indicating the valid version of a specific SID.
  • a route indicator, i.e. a letter representing the runway where the SID begins.

SIDs are published for RWY 03 and 21.

1.2.2.3 Departure instructions (paragraph 1.2.2.1, item e.)

Instructions containing deviations from the standard instrument departure may be added to the en route or take-off clearance. These instructions may comprise an opposite turn after take-off, maintaining a specified heading or temporary altitude restrictions; they amend the relevant part of the SID only.

1.2.2.4 General instructions
  1. Climb as rapidly as practicable to at least 2000 ft AMSL.
  2. VOR radial interception angle: in principle 45°. If the indicated angle exceeds 45° initiate turn in due time in order not to overshoot the radial.
1.2.3 Taxi procedures

Aircraft shall request taxi clearance on the TWR channel (see EHBK AD 2.18).

1.2.4 En route communication

Pilots shall contact the adjacent ATC unit as soon as possible after they have been so instructed by Beek ATC.

1.3 Communication failure

See ENR 1.3.

1.4 SID descriptions
1.4.1 General remarks
  • Transition altitude: 3000 FT AMSL.
  • Pilots of departing aircraft shall remain on the TWR channel until passing 2000 FT AMSL. When passing 2000 FT AMSL pilots shall change to the APP channel and report the altitude in order for ATC to verify mode C.
  • Initiate turns in due time in order not to overshoot radials.
  • Turn radii based on a 25° bank angle.
  • Radial interception angle: 45°.
  • The SIDs are based on an average climb rate of 2000 FT/MIN.
  • SIDs have to be considered as minimum noise routings which shall be strictly adhered to.
  • MAX 250 KIAS below FL 100 unless otherwise instructed.
  • RNAV: The Netherlands encourages the use of RNAV routes stored in a pre-programmed navigation database on board of aircraft. Although there may be differences between the RNAV and conventional description of a route (vertically: turn altitudes and/or laterally: turn anticipation effects), the resulting flight paths are considered identical by ATC. Therefore, flying the route using the RNAV coding from the navigation database will not result in route violations.
    Furthermore:
    • Connect FMS as early as possible.
    • The BKEH-waypoints shall not be used in RTF procedures.
    • Turn anticipation is mandatory for all waypoints except those which are underlined, these waypoints shall be overflown.
    • The navigation aid (e.g. VOR) mentioned in the column "Expected path terminator" is for selection of MAG station declination only.
1.4.2 Specific remarks
  1. Pilots unable to comply with the crossing condition BK317 (2.5 MAS R-248) at or above 3500 FT AMSL, have to inform Beek ATC before departure. The minimum climb gradient of 10.3 percent is required due to glider activities in ATZ Schinveld.
  2. Pilots unable to comply with the crossing condition ULPEN at or above FL 045 or FL 060, have to inform Beek ATC before departure. The minimum climb gradient of 5.8 percent (OLNO 2A) or 6.6 percent (OLNO 2B) is required due to the airspace structure.
  3. Only for aircraft with destination EHGG and EHLE, MAX FL 095.
  4. Only for aircraft with destination EHAM, MAX FL 075.
  5. Only for aircraft with destination EDDK.
  6. RNAV 1 required.
  7. SIDs RWY 21: early autopilot connection might result in turn initiation below 760 FT AMSL. If applicable, continue on track 211° MAG beyond 9.5 MAS to prevent turning below 760 FT AMSL.

2.3 Initial and intermediate approach
2.3.1 Holding and entry procedures

Holding and entry procedures and the calculations of the associated protected areas are in accordance with PANS-OPS Volume II, part 4. Since separation is based on the calculated areas, compliance with these in-flight procedures is essential.

2.3.2 Approach instructions

Approach instructions are included in the inbound clearance issued on initial contact (see paragraph 2.2.1). Approach instructions will contain as applicable:

  1. Additional instructions with respect to clearance limit, route and level.
  2. Approach procedure.
  3. Runway in use1).
  4. EAT, if holding procedures are applied.
  5. QNH.
  6. Transition level1).
  7. MET information1).
  8. Runway condition1).
  1. during the hours of ATIS broadcast (see EHBK AD 2.18), item may be omitted as far as it is included in the ATIS broadcast.
2.3.3 Conventional ILS approaches

Navigation in the initial and intermediate approach segments is primarily based on vectors provided by ATC. Conventional initial and intermediate approach procedures to RWY 03 are available and will be used during COM failure or at ATC discretion.

There is no ILS approach with conventional initial and intermediate approach segment available to RWY 21. Non-RNAV 1 traffic should expect vectors provided by ATC to the final approach published on the ILS X chart AD 2.EHBK-IAC-21.1.

2.3.4 ILS approaches with RNAV 1 segments
2.3.4.1 General

Navigation in the initial and intermediate approach segments is primarily based on RNAV 1, followed by an ILS final approach. These can be initiated by ATC in order to reduce noise nuisance, fuel consumption, and to provide flexible and efficient ATC dispatch. The following ILS approaches with RNAV 1 segments are available:

  • ILS X or LOC X RWY 03;
  • ILS X or LOC X RWY 21.

These procedures are developed in accordance with ICAO PANS-OPS criteria with the following safeguards:

  • The RNAV segments are situated above MSA/MFA/MRVA;
  • ILS-LOC interception takes place in the intermediate segment;
  • The operations are strictly radar monitored by ATC.
2.3.4.2 Approach clearances and altitudes

These approaches start at the IAF of the procedure and provide a lateral route onto the final approach. Altitudes and IAS will be as instructed by ATC. The approach clearance includes clearance to execute the ILS approach and intercept the glide path from the last instructed altitude. Further details are published on the relevant instrument approach charts.

2.3.4.3 Non-RNAV 1 equipped aircraft

Aircraft unable to meet the mentioned requirements shall react with the phraseology "UNABLE RNAV" if instructed to fly RNAV approach segments. These aircraft will be guided by vectors or rerouted via conventional navigation aids.

2.3.5 RNP approach
2.3.5.1 General

RNP approaches to LNAV, LNAV/VNAV and LPV minima are available for RWY 21.

2.3.5.2 Aircraft requirements

For the use of an RNP approach it is required that the operator holds an RNP APCH operations approval issued by their State of registry. The approval should be compliant with EASA PART-ACNS or equivalent.

2.3.5.3 Non-RNP approach equipped aircraft

Aircraft unable to meet the mentioned requirements shall react with the phraseology "UNABLE RNP (APCH)" if instructed to fly RNP approach procedures. These aircraft will be guided by vectors, rerouted via ILS approaches or via conventional navigation aids

2 Intermediate approach
2.1 RNAV approach procedures

Special approaches based on RNAV can be initiated by ATC in order to reduce noise nuisance, fuel consumption, and to provide flexible and efficient ATC dispatch.

2.2 General

The RNAV operations in the Maastricht TMA are developed in accordance with ICAO PANS-OPS criteria with the following safeguards:

  • The RNAV section of the inbound route is situated above the initial segment of the initial approach procedure above MSA/MFA/MRVA.
  • The RNAV part is complete on entering the intermediate segment in which ILS-LOC interception takes place.
  • The operations are strictly radar monitored by ATC.
2.2.1 RNAV approach clearances

On initiative of ATC, aircraft may be instructed to intercept the ILS via an RNAV initial approach segment. Clearances and altitudes:

  • These approaches start at a RNAV waypoint provided with a pronounceable five-letter designator.
  • The RNAV procedures provide a lateral route onto the final approach.
  • Altitudes and IAS will be as instructed by ATC.
  • The approach clearance includes clearance to execute the ILS approach and intercept the glide path from the last instructed altitude.
  • At ATC discretion only.

Further details are published on the relevant instrument approach charts.

2.2.2 Aircraft requirements
  • RNAV 1 is an advantage but is not yet explicitly required.
  • The navigation system shall make use of a database in which the fixed route structure is stored in advance and available to the pilot during flight.
  • The navigation equipment must be capable of applying turn anticipation at fly-by waypoints.
  • The navigation equipment must be capable of handling fly-by as well as fly-over waypoints in a mixed sequence.
2.2.3 Non-RNAV equipped aircraft

Aircraft unable to met the mentioned requirements shall react with the phraseology "UNABLE RNAV" if instructed to fly RNAV approach procedures. These aircraft will be guided by radar vectors or rerouted via conventional navigation aids.

2.4 Final approach
an aircraft vectored to intercept final approach shall report to ATC when established on the final approach track (ICAO Doc 4444-ATM/501 (PANS-ATM) chapter 8.9.4.1).
2.4 Final approach procedure

In principle the final approach will be conducted on the ILS of the main landing runway.

2.4.1 Instrument approaches

In principle the final approach will be conducted on the ILS of the main landing runway. Instrument approaches to RWY 03 and 21 can be made with the assistance of ILS, LOC, NDB (RWY 03 only) or RNP (RWY 21 only).NDB.

2.4.2 ILS operations
2.4.2.1 Clearances

ATC will apply safeguards and procedures for ILS operations in relation to weather conditions to facilitate CAT I, CAT II and CAT III operations. However, it will be applied irrespective of the actual category of operations flown, which is on pilot's decision. As a consequence the approach clearance provided by ATC is based on traffic only. During the approach pilots will be informed of:

  • any known unserviceabilities of aids and/or downgrading when applicable.
  • significant changes in surface wind (speed and direction).
  • changes in RVR.
2.4.2.2 Practice ILS approaches

Pilots who wish to practise ILS CAT II or CAT III approaches have to request this on initial contact with Beek APP using the phrase: "Request practice CAT II or CAT III approach".

2.4.3 Approach angle RWY 21

Due to possible roof top damage caused by aircraft on short final RWY 21, it is emphasized that no instrument and/or visual approach shall be made at an angle less than the ILS glide path or less than 5.2% (3.0 DEG) if no ILS is available.

2.4.4 Visual approach

To minimise noise nuisance, aircraft executing a visual approach shall intercept the final approach leg at an altitude of at least 1400 FT AMSL, unless residential areas can be avoided. Visual approaches during night hours are not allowed, see EHBK AD 2.20 paragraph 1.

2.4.5 Circling approach

For each available landing runway at Maastricht Aachen Airport a circling approach may be allowed or offered. For OCA (OCH) see relevant instrument approach chart AD 2.EHBK-IAC-xx.x.

2.5 Missed approach procedure
2.5.1 General

All turns shall be the shortest turn and in case of a 180° turn that turn shall be to the left, unless otherwise specified below or instructed by ATC.

2.5.2 Missed approach procedure during instrument approach

See relevant instrument approach chart AD 2.EHBK-IAC-xx.x.

3 LOW VISIBILITY PROCEDURES

During periods of limited visibility the overall ATC capacity is reduced. To guarantee aircraft safety and optimal use of ATC capacity, Maastricht Aachen Airport uses ATC low visibility procedures. These procedures are based on ICAO DOC 9476/1 (Surface Movement Guidance and Control Manual) and ECAC DOC 17 (Ground operations in limited visibility conditions).

The ATC low visibility procedures are categorised in four phases (A, B, C, and D), that are based on visibility or RVR values and ceiling.

PhaseLimits
A550 M <= visibility <= 2000 M (or 550 M <= RVR <= 1500 M)
and/or 200 FT <= ceiling <= 300 FT
(Lowest RVR of landing runway in use)
B350 M <= RVR < 550 M and/or ceiling < 200 FT
(Lowest RVR of landing runway in use)
C200 M <= RVR < 350 M
(Lowest RVR of landing runway in use)
DRVR < 200 M
(Lowest RVR of landing runway in use)

The ATC low visibility procedures become effective when the general visibility equals or drops below 2000 M or when the lowest RVR of the landing runway in use equals or drops below 1500 M and/or ceiling is equal to or less than 300 FT. First, the minimum separation for arriving aircraft and the departure interval will be increased. Next, runway use will be restricted.

Pilots should not request start-up permission unless the RVR values for the take-off runway are above the take-off limits for the flight. Pilots should be informed about the RVR minima that apply to their flight, so that they can readily respond to requests about these minima.

If the runway stop bars are out of service, additional restrictions apply.

During LVP all runway entries and runway crossings are safeguarded by switchable (remote controlled) or fixed stop bars (see AD 2.EHBK-ADC). Crossing of activated stop bars is prohibited. Traffic may proceed only after ATC clearance and when the stop bar lights are switched off (ICAO Annex 2).

2 DETERMINATION OF DATUM LINE FOR TAKE-OFF
2.1 Determination of datum line for start position take-off RWY 03

The loss of runway length due to alignment shall be taken into account for the calculation of the aircraft's take-off mass.


2.2 Determination of datum line for intersection take-off

The datum line from which the reduced runway declared distances for take-off should be determined is defined by the intersection of the downwind edge of the specific TWY with the runway edge. The loss of runway length due to alignment of the aircraft prior to take-off shall be taken into account by the operators for the calculation of the aircraft's take-off mass (Annex 6, Part 1, paragraph 5.2.8).



3 RUNWAY TURN PAD

There are 2 runway turn pads situated at the end of RWY 21:

  • runway turn pad 1 is situated at the displaced threshold RWY 03;
  • runway turn pad 2 is situated at the runway extremity.

Turn pad 1 shall not be used:

  • outside UDP;
  • by aircraft code E and F (with wingspan more than 52 M);
  • when LVP are in operation.

Turn pad 1 is marked by a yellow guidance line and blue edge lights outside the edge of the turn pad. In the area of the turn pad, the edge of the runway is equipped with inset edge lights.
Turn pad 2 is marked by a yellow guidance line, unidirectional green centre line lights and blue edge lights outside the edge of the turn pad. In the area of the turn pad, the edge of the runway is equipped with inset edge lights.
