EGBB  AD 2.21  NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

1  Noise
  1. Noise Preferential Routeings and Procedures - all aircraft inbound or outbound from this aerodrome are required to conform to the following procedures; notwithstanding that these may at any time be departed from to the extent necessary for avoiding immediate danger.

2  General
  1. Every operator of aircraft using the aerodrome shall ensure at all times that aircraft are operated in a manner calculated to cause the least disturbance practicable in areas surrounding the aerodrome.

  2. Unless on radar vectors, aircraft shall avoid the congested areas of Hampton-in-Arden and Balsall Common to the southeast of the aerodrome and Dorridge, Knowle and Hockley Heath to the southwest of the aerodrome.

  3. Crews of RNAV1 capable aircraft routing south from Runway 15 should expect ATC to issue COWLY 2Y, CPT 2Y, DTY 2Y or WCO 2Y departure clearances as appropriate.

3  Take-off and Missed Approaches
  1. Every jet aircraft using the aerodrome shall, after take-off or 'go-around' attain as soon as safety permits, a rate of climb of at least 500 FT per minute at power settings which will ensure progressively decreasing noise levels at points under the flight path.

4  ILS Approaches
  1. Unless otherwise instructed by ATC, aircraft using the ILS in IMC or VMC shall not descend below 2000 FT QNH before intercepting the glidepath nor fly below the glidepath thereafter. An aircraft approaching without assistance from ILS or radar shall follow a descent path which will not result in its being at any time lower than the approach path which would be followed by an aircraft using the ILS glidepath.

5  Continuous Descent Approaches
  1. Turbo-jet and turbo-prop aircraft are expected to apply continuous descent, low power, low drag approach techniques at all times.

  2. Subject to ATC instructions, inbound aircraft are to maintain as high an altitude as practical and adopt a low power, low drag, continuous descent approach profile. ATC will provide estimated track distance to touchdown to allow pilots to descend at a rate they judge best suited to achieve continuous descent without using more power or drag than necessary. The object will be to join the glidepath at the appropriate height for the distance without level flight.

  3. To facilitate these techniques aircraft should be flown no faster than 250 KT from the Speed Limiting Points and below FL 100 and 250 KT-210 KT during the intermediate approach phase. Thereafter speed should be managed so as to achieve a continuous descent using as little power or drag as possible. ATC may impose speed control if required for separation purposes. ATC will impose a speed of 180 KTS or less inside 10 DME I-BM/I-BIR.

  4. CDAs will commence from ALT 6000 FT QNH.

  5. ATC will provide regular range checks. Pilots who require additional track mileage to facilitate a successful CDA should inform ATC as soon as the requirement is apparent.

6  Visual Circuits Approaches – General
  1. Propeller driven aircraft MTWA 5700 KG or less

    1. For aircraft in this category, the minimum height for joining the final approach track shall be 1000 FT QFE for all approaches.

  2. All aircraft except those excluded in paragraph 5 a

    1. All aircraft carrying out visual circuits/approaches to Runways 33 and 15 shall not, unless instructed by ATC, descend below 2500 FT QNH (2175 FT QFE) on the downwind legs until they are abeam the aerodrome, after which a continuous rate is to be maintained.

    2. Aircraft must not join the final approach track to any runway at a height of less than 1825 FT QNH (1500 FT QFE), except when carrying out a right hand visual circuit to Runway 33 when the minimum height for joining the final approach track will be 1225 FT QNH (900 FT QFE).

    3. To minimise noise disturbance to congested urban areas adjacent to the aerodrome, base turns to visual circuits to Runway 15 and 33 are shown in the map at AD 2-EGBB-4-1. These should be flown whenever possible.

    4. To minimise disturbance in areas adjacent to the aerodrome, captains are requested to avoid the use of reverse thrust after landing, consistent with safe operation of the aircraft, especially between 2300-0700 (2200-0600).

7  Noise Preferential Routings
  1. The Noise Preferential Routings given below are compatible with ATC requirements and shall apply in both VMC and IMC. The tracks are to be flown by all departing jet aircraft and by all other aircraft with a maximum certified weight exceeding 5700 KG unless otherwise instructed by ATC or unless deviations are required in the interests of safety. The use of the route is supplementary to noise abatement take-off techniques. After take-off, pilots should ensure that they are at a minimum height of 500 FT QFE before initiating any turn. The obligations of NPRs for Runway 33 cease when the aircraft is at an altitude of 3000 FT or above. The obligations of NPRs for Runway 15 northbound departures cease when the aircraft is at an altitude of 3000 FT or above. The obligations of NPRs for Runway 15 southbound departures (including COWLY, CPT, DTY, WCO) cease when the aircraft is at an altitude of 4000 FT or above.

EGBB  AD 2.22  FLIGHT PROCEDURES

1  Radio Communication Failure Procedures

In the event of complete radio failure in an aircraft the pilot is to adopt the appropriate procedures notified at ENR 1.1.3, with the exception described below.

  1. Inbound Aircraft

    1. When complete communications failure occurs in the aircraft before ETA, or before EAT when this has been received and acknowledged, the aircraft will:

      1. fly to the appropriate holding point (GROVE, OLIVE or CHASE);

      2. hold at the last assigned level until the last acknowledged ETA plus 10 minutes or EAT when this has been given;

      3. then commence descent for landing in accordance with the approach procedure for the runway-in-use and effect a landing within 30 minutes (or later if able to approach and land visually).

    2. If complete radio communications failure occurs after an aircraft has reported to ATC on reaching the holding point, the aircraft will:

      1. hold at the last assigned level at GROVE, OLIVE or CHASE until:

        (aa) ATA over the holding point plus 10 minutes or 10 minutes after the last acknowledged communication with ATC, whichever is the later; or

        (bb) EAT when this has been received and acknowledged;

      2. Then commence descent for landing in accordance with the approach procedure for the runway-in-use and effect a landing within 30 minutes (or later if able to approach and land visually).

    3. When complete radio communication failure occurs during intermediate or final approach under radar control the procedures to be followed are detailed at AD 2-EGBB-5-1.

    4. When complete radio communication failure occurs in the aircraft following a missed approach the aircraft will:

      1. fly the appropriate missed approach procedure to BHX NDB(L);

      2. complete at least one holding pattern at 2500 FT;

  2. Outbound Aircraft

    1. Aircraft departing under radar control from Birmingham may be instructed by the radar controller, via aerodrome control, to maintain specific headings.

    2. If, after having been instructed to maintain a specific heading after take-off, a pilot experiences radio failure, he shall climb on the assigned heading to the first altitude detailed in the clearance, maintain this heading and altitude for two minutes, and then proceed in accordance with the published radio failure procedures.

2  Procedure for Inbound/Outbound Aircraft via MOSUN/LUXTO
  1. Birmingham-MOSUN Procedures

    The Birmingham-MOSUN Procedure is only available to turbo-prop aircraft joining or leaving MOSUN FL 160 or below between Mon-Fri 0900-1700 (0800-1600) excluding public holidays.

  2. Operators intending their aircraft to make use of the MOSUN procedure on departure must ensure that the following addresses are added to the flight plan:

    EGWDZQZX and EGFFZPZX and EGTTZFZC

    Significant delays may be encountered in the event that these addresses are omitted.

  3. MOSUN Departure Clearances

    When Runway 15 is in use, aircraft departing towards MOSUN will be instructed to follow the MOSUN 15 procedure. For example: “Callsign, MOSUN 15 procedure, squawk XXXX”.

    1. MOSUN 15 Procedure - Runway 15

      At 2 DME, turn right to track 165 to 4 DME, then turn right cleared to leave controlled airspace on track MOSUN, climb to altitude 6000 FT.

      When Runway 33 is in use, aircraft departing towards MOSUN will be issued with the UMLUX 1M SID.

    2. UMLUX 1M Departure - Runway 33

      The UMLUX 1M SID is available to turbo prop aircraft joining at MOSUN FL 160 or below between the hours specified in paragraph 2a.

  4. During the hours when N92 is available:

    When Runway 33 is in use, aircraft filing via N92 will receive an UMLUX1M departure.

    When Runway 15 is in use, aircraft departing to join N92 at LUXTO will be instructed to follow the LUXTO 15 procedure. For example:

    “Callsign, LUXTO 15 procedure, squawk XXXX”

    1. LUXTO 15 procedure – Runway 15

      At 2 DME, turn right to track 165 to 4 DME, then turn right direct LUXTO, climb to altitude 6000 FT.

3  Procedure for Inbound Aircraft
  1. Clearance to enter the CTR/CTA

    1. Aircraft flying the Airways System will be cleared into the CTR/CTA without having to request a specific entry clearance.

    2. Aircraft wishing to enter the CTR/CTA from the London FIR must obtain clearance from Birmingham Approach Control before entering Controlled Airspace.

  2. Holding. Holding patterns are as follows:

    Birmingham NDB(L) BHX

    Holding axis 147° MAG, turning right at the facility.

    (Lowest holding ALT 2500 FT) (See Note).

    GROVE

    Holding fix HON VOR/DME 284°/10 NM on an axis of 104° MAG turning right at the fix.

    Lowest holding level FL 70. Speed limit 210 KT.

    CEDAR

    Holding axis 147° MAG, turning right at the fix.

    (Lowest holding ALT 2500 FT) (See Note).

    CHASE

    Holding fix HON VOR/DME 330°/18 NM on an axis of 150° MAG turning right at the fix.

    Lowest holding level 5000 FT (See Note). Speed limit 210 KT.

    MAPLE

    Holding axis 327° MAG, turning left at the fix.

    (Lowest holding ALT 2500 FT) (See Note).

    OLIVE

    Holding fix DTY VOR/DME 295°/33 NM on an axis of 115° MAG turning right at the fix.

    Lowest holding level FL 70. Speed limit 210 KT.

    This Holding Pattern is to be used if HON VOR is out of service.

    Note: Aircraft holding at the above facilities may be required to do so above the upper limit of the Birmingham CTA, and within the Daventry CTA.

  3. Missed Approaches

    1. The Birmingham Standard Missed Approach Procedures are detailed within the associated Instrument Flight Procedure Charts. The following procedures shall apply in the event of executing a missed approach with loss of radio communications:

      Landing direction

      Procedure

      150° MAG

      Climb ahead to 1000 FT (QNH). Turn right onto track 169° MAG to 2500 FT or I BIR DME 4, whichever is the later, then turn left to NDB(L) BHX

      330° MAG

      Climb ahead to 2500 FT (QNH) or I BM DME 2, whichever is the later. Then procedure turn right to NDB(L) BHX.

  4. Speed Control

    1. Pilots should typically expect the following speed restrictions to be enforced:
      220 KT from the holding facility during intermediate approach phase;
      180 KT on base leg/closing heading to the ILS;
      180-160 KT when first established on the ILS;
      160 KT between 7 and 4 DME

    2. These speeds are mandatory for applying standardised CDA approaches, optimizing departure flow and for ATC separation purposes. In the event of a new (non-speed related) ATC Clearance being issued (eg an instruction to descend on ILS), pilots are not absolved from a requirement to maintain a previously allocated speed. All speed restrictions are to be flown as accurately as possible. Aircraft unable to conform to these speeds should inform ATC and state what speeds will be used. In the interests of accurate spacing, pilots are requested to comply with speed adjustments as promptly as feasible within their own operational constraints, advising ATC if circumstances necessitate a change of speed for aircraft performance reasons.

4  Procedures for Outbound Aircraft
  1. After departure, aircraft shall remain on the Tower frequency until instructed.

  2. Departure Speed Restriction: In order to optimise the departure flow and assist in the separation between successive departing aircraft a speed limit of 250 KT IAS below FL 100 is applicable until removed by ATC. ATC may remove the speed restriction by using the phrase No ATC Speed Restriction. Pilots are reminded that this phrase does not relieve the pilot of the responsibility to adhere to the ground track of the Noise Preferential Route, which may require a speed/power limitation.

  3. If for any reason pilots are unable to comply with the 250 KT IAS speed restriction the pilot should immediately advise ATC and state the minimum speed acceptable. If a pilot anticipates before departure that they will be unable to comply with the speed restriction, they should inform ATC when requesting start-up clearance, stating the minimum speed acceptable. In this case the pilot will be informed before take-off of any higher speed limitation.

  4. Pilots of departing VFR flights should expect departure via one of the following 4 designated VRPs closest to the required departure track, not above altitude 2000 FT:

    1. M42 Junction 10 (Tamworth);

    2. M6 Junction 3 (Bedworth);

    3. M40/M42 Interchange;

    4. Frankley Reservoirs.

    Pilots should state requested VRP on first contact with ATC.

5  Special VFR Flight
  1. Special VFR clearances for flights within the Birmingham CTR may be requested and will be given whenever traffic conditions permit. These flights are subject to the general conditions laid down for Special VFR flights.

  2. Aircraft may be given a radar service whilst within the CTR if, due to the traffic situation, ATC considers it advisable. It will remain the responsibility of the pilot to remain at all times in flight conditions which will enable him to determine his flight path and to keep clear of obstacles, and to ensure that he is able to comply with the requirements of SERA.3105 Minimum Heights, SERA.5010 Special VFR in control zones and ENR 1.2 paragraph 1.3(l). Pilots must inform the Radar Controller if compliance with the above entails a change of heading or height.

  3. Clearance to make Special VFR flights below 1500 FT ALT will not be given in the sector of the Birmingham CTR enclosed by the bearings 240°T and 360°T.

7  Frequency Monitoring Code (FMC)
  1. Pilots operating in the vicinity of, but intending to remain outside Birmingham controlled airspace, clear of Coventry within the area defined by straight lines joining successively the following points and maintaining a listening watch only on Birmingham Approach frequency, 123.980 MHz, are encouraged to select SSR code 0010.

    524800N 0015216W - 524216N 0021343W -
    523130N 0021145W - 520515N 0014622W -

    524800N 0015216W.

  2. Selection of 0010 does not imply the receipt of an ATC service. Aircraft displaying the code are not expected to contact ATC under normal circumstances, remain responsible for their own navigation, separation, terrain clearance and are expected to remain clear of the controlled airspace at all times.

  3. Whilst squawking 0010 pilots should be aware that Birmingham Approach may make blind transmissions in order to ascertain a particular aircraft's intentions/route.

  4. When a pilot ceases to maintain a listening watch, code 0010 shall be deselected.
