EGPR  AD 2.20  LOCAL AERODROME REGULATIONS

1  Airport Regulations
  1. Use of Barra aerodrome is subject to standard Terms and Conditions of Use, which can be requested from the aerodrome.

2  Ground Movement
  1. Marshalling is not available and aircraft have to self park.

3  CAT II/III Operations

Not applicable

4  Warnings
  1. The landing and take-off areas may be considerably ridged by hard sand and contain pools of standing water. These are potential hazards to aircraft.

  2. The bearing strength, braking action and contamination of the beach is unknown, variable and unpredictable.

  3. Some downdraughts may be experienced at the western end of Runway 07/25 in strong wind from the west through south.

  4. Pilots should be aware that cockling activities frequently take place between the runway markers and the tide-line. Both pedestrian and vehicular activity may occur and from the air may appear to infringe the runway thresholds during published aerodrome opening hours. This activity is closely monitored by FIS. A flashing white light on top of the Control Tower advises the local Cocklers that an aircraft movement is imminent and is in no way to be used as a navigational aid by aircrew.

  5. High ground rising to 338 ft amsl 0.75 nm to the north.
    High ground rising to 294 ft amsl 2.2 nm to the northeast.
    High ground rising to 680 ft amsl within 1.5 nm to the south.
    High ground rising to 680 ft amsl within 1.5 nm to the south.
    Telegraph wires 20 ft amsl, adjacent to the western boundary of the landing area.

    Obstacle protected surfaces are infringed by high ground up to 700 ft amsl between the south and west, and to a lesser extent by high ground up to 340 ft amsl to the north of the aerodrome. The minima of 3 km visibility and cloud base of 1000 ft aal must therefore be strictly adhered to, except where an AOC holder has a less restrictive State authorised approach minima. Pilots must be able to see and avoid obstacles on take-off and landing.

5  Helicopter Operations

Not applicable

6  Use of Runways
  1. Runway departure restriction for aircraft requiring the use of a licensed aerodrome:

    1. Runways 07/25, 11/29 and 15/33. Except where an AOC holder has a less restrictive State authorised take-off minima, departures when the reported MET visibility is 800 m or less are not permitted.
