EGGP AD 2.9  SURFACE MOVEMENT GUIDANCE AND CONTROL SYSTEM AND MARKINGS

1

Use of aircraft stand ID signs, TWY guide lines and visual

docking/parking guidance system of aircraft stands

Main Apron access is via Uniform/Victor/Whisky. Stands 1-14, 32-41 are taxi in/
push-back. On occasion aircraft can be parked for self manoeuvring.

Stands 1-6 are fitted with AGNIS Visual Docking Guidance System (VDGS), all
other stands on the Main Apron require the aircraft to be parked under the
instruction of the Marshaller. Stand 14A is a self-manoeuvring stand for aircraft
up to the size of B747. Individual airline operators are advised to contact the
Airport Operations Centre (Tel: 0151-907 1551) to discuss the 'exit
manoeuvring requirements' from the stand, which involves a nose wheel
turning angle of 55°.

Eastern Apron: Access is via Taxiway Tango. Stands 51-56 are fitted with
AGNIS and PAPA VDGS. Stands 51 and 54 can accommodate aircraft up to
the size of B757. Stands 52 and 55 can accommodate aircraft up to the size of
B767. Stands 53 and 56 can accommodate aircraft up to the size of B737.

The activation of the AGNIS is an indication to the Captain that the stand has
been inspected and is clear of FOD and any obstacles. If the AGNIS is not
switched on, the aircraft should hold its position on the taxilane until the AGNIS
has been activated, or a marshaller is present.

If in any doubt aircraft captains should ask for Marshaller guidance.

EGGP AD 2.20  LOCAL AERODROME REGULATIONS

1   Airport Regulations
  1. Pilots are to 'book out' by telephoning details to ATC. ‘Booking out’ by radio is not accepted.

  2. The wearing of high visibility clothing is mandatory for all personnel employed on each of the apron areas, including flight crews.

  3. The aerodrome is PPR for aircraft which are not based at Liverpool Airport. Mandatory handling is required for all visiting or non-based aircraft. Prior permission should be requested through a handling agent, AOC and airportcontrol@liverpoolairport.com; (see AD 2.4). No permission will be granted by ATC. Aircraft without prior permission could be refused landing clearance except in an emergency. Filing a flight plan does not constitute a PPR request.

  4. Prior permission for departures and arrivals is required from ATC for aircraft unable to communicate with ATC by radio.

  5. Aircraft Captains, through their staff and/or Handling agents, are responsible for the safety of persons and/or vehicles on the apron during engine start.

  6. All flights, except General Aviation and Military flights, are subject to the prior approval of the Airport Operations Director, Liverpool Airport Ltd and prior notification to Airport Co-ordination Ltd, who act as an agent for the airport. Requests for ad-hoc slot allocations should be made to ACL during working hours Mon-Fri 0830-1700 (0730-1600) by SITA: LONACXH; e-mail: lonacxh@acl-uk.org ; or Tel: +44 (0)161-493 1850, Fax: +44 (0)161-493 1853, or at all other times to Airfield Operations +44 (0)151-907 1551. OCS account holders can add, change and cancel slots at any time on the online coordination portal: https://www.online-coordination.com

  7. Departure Planning Information (DPI) messages are fully operational providing DPI messages to the Network Manager Operations Centre in Brussels.

2   Ground Movement
  1. Aircraft entering the Main Apron will be as directed by ATC, however, aircraft with a wingspan of 36 M or more will enter through Taxiway Whiskey (W).

  2. Aircraft re-positioning on the aprons must obtain ATC permission and then follow the marshaller’s guidance.

  3. Taxiway Alpha from Holding Point Alpha 3 to Runway 27 threshold is restricted to aircraft with less than 52 M wingspan (code E). Aircraft with a wing span of 52 M or more shall be escorted by a follow-me vehicle ensuring nose wheel is maintained on the taxiway centre-line. A wing person shall be provided on the single story building 41.5 M north of the taxiway centre-line between Alpha 3 and the 27 threshold which infringes the code E taxiway strip.

  4. Owing to the position of the hangars, Stands 1 and 32 are out of sight of ATC. Pilots should listen carefully to their taxi instructions.

  5. Pilots are to report their stand number when requesting start-up. Start-up must not be requested until the aircraft is fully ready to start.

  6. Take-off, landing and taxiing on grass areas is not permitted. Helicopters may be permitted to alight on the grass area adjacent to the General Aviation parking area.

  7. The General Aviation parking area is limited to aircraft of 5700 KG or less.

  8. Visiting aircraft entering the GA apron at Kilo are to call Ravenair on 131.750 MHz for parking instructions.

  9. All runway holding position stop bars are constantly illuminated except when de-selected by ATC to permit aircraft and vehicles to enter runway.

  10. A vehicle crossing point at Z15 also has a red stop bar which is controlled by ATC and is for use by vehicles only.

  11. A Temporary Demarcated Area is available on Stands 11,12 or 14 for any flights of Non-Qualifying Status. This area is only available by prior request. All aircraft parked on this area must not request start with ATC until the ground handling agents have given their approval to the pilot to do so, in order to ensure the area is free from all obstructions.

  12. If a pilot has any doubt about taxiing instructions or ground clearance they should ask for marshalling assistance, which upon request will be provided.

3   CAT II/III Operations
  1. Runway 27, subject to serviceability of the required facilities, are suitable for Category II and III operations by operators whose minima have been accepted by the Civil Aviation Authority.

  2. During CAT II/III operations, special ATC procedures (Low Visibility Operations) will be applied. Pilots will be informed by ATC when these procedures are in operation. Pilots are advised that implementation of these procedures can cause delays for inbound and outbound traffic.

  3. Aircraft departing Runway 27 must hold at the Alpha 2 holding point.

  4. Arriving aircraft must continue to the end of the runway to vacate via CHARLIE. Aircraft must report runway vacated and report reaching Alpha 8.

  5. For CAT II/III Operations, changeover standby power to mains takes place in 1 second.

  6. Aircraft parking on the main apron will normally enter at Whiskey and exit at Uniform, except when directed by ATC.

  7. Illuminated stop bars will be in operation at Holding Points A2, A3, A8, K, T, U, V and W during Low Visibility Operations.

4   Warnings
  1. Pilots should positively identify the runway in use before committing the aircraft to a landing.

  2. Pilots are reminded of the proximity of Restricted Area EG R311, 5 NM southwest of the aerodrome.

  3. Aircraft completing visual approaches to Liverpool airport from the south and southeast are requested to avoid overflying the industrial chemical works situated on the south bank of the River Mersey, 1 NM south of the NDB LPL.

  4. Pilots should exercise caution when leaving the main apron via Taxiway Victor to ensure they do not enter the rapid exit turn-off at ECHO when taxiing to Runway 09 or Runway 27.

  5. Pilots are reminded that throughout the year, bird concentrations may be present on all areas under agricultural use on the approaches to Runway 09/27. Deterrent/dispersal within the aerodrome boundary is conducted by the Airfield Operations Unit and pilots may be requested by ATC to delay a departure or arrival if dispersal proves difficult.

  6. Radio controlled models up to 20 KG operate at maximum altitude 400 FT AGL during daylight hours only, between 1000-2100 (0900-2000), within the confines of: Frodsham Marshes (132° - 4.4 NM), Halton Moss (085° - 7.6 NM) and Arrowe Park (290° - 11 NM). Runway 27 undershoot RESA is only 37 M long due to a public highway. The under shoot RESA contains the following obstacles: ILS Localiser 117 M from 27 threshold; Wooden fence and light hedge.

  7. Maintenance equipment on airport hotel roof. When in use equipment penetrates through the Obstacle Limitation Surface by maximum of 2.0 M. Obstacle approximately 625 M on a bearing of 329° from ARP. Equipped with obstacle warning light that automatically illuminates when the equipment is in use. When not in use and in parked position it is no longer an obstacle.

  8. Over recent years, three specific Laser Hotspot areas have been identified in the vicinity of Liverpool Airport from which aircraft are more susceptible to laser attack from the ground. These areas are Liverpool city centre (7 NM northwest), Warrington town centre (10 NM northeast) and Runcorn town centre (4.5 NM east). Pilots are encouraged to report all laser attacks immediately to ATC including details of the colour of the laser and, where possible, the precise location of the laser. This information is then passed to the local police for an immediate response.

  9. UK legislation requires UAVs unless otherwise authorised, to be flown at a level not above 400 FT above ground level and away from the vicinity of airports. Pilots encountering or observing UAVs operating above this level or in the vicinity of the airport are strongly encouraged to inform Liverpool ATC of the presence of the UAV. A description of the UAV, including its approximate level and location, should be communicated to ATC as soon as possible. ATC will then ensure that this information is immediately passed to the relevant police authority for further investigation on the ground.

  10. During the period 0001-0600 (2301-0500), ATC may be closed for periods of up to one hour to facilitate controller breaks. The approach frequency will be monitored and pilots should make calls as normal, however there could therefore be a short delay in the controller responding to calls. The Class D airspace will remain in place, please check NOTAM and the ATIS for timings. If you are flight planning Liverpool John Lennon Airport as an alternate between 0001-0600 (2301-0500) you should ensure sufficient holding fuel.

5   Helicopter Operations
  1. Parts of the manoeuvring area can be used for take-offs and landings as instructed by ATC. Thresholds of the operational runways are designated as aiming points.

  2. Arrivals: ATC will either select the appropriate threshold or instruct the helicopter to make an approach to the runway. If instructed to approach the runway, the helicopter is to turn on to a final approach and arrange the descent to flare to ground or hover taxiing speed in the fixed wing runway touchdown zone.

  3. Taxiway Alpha Arrivals/Departures: Approach/Departures to the Alpha taxiway are only permitted when:

    1. the runway is closed; and

    2. the helicopter is operating on a VFR clearance; and

    3. there are no aircraft, vehicles or personnel on the taxiway.

  4. Departures: These will be made from the runway, Aiming Points or parallel taxiway as selected by ATC.

  5. Taxiing - Hover (or ground taxiing if applicable) is required to/from the parking area via designated taxiways.

  6. A training area for helicopter hovering has been designated to the west of Taxiway Charlie on a disused taxiway and grassed area. Manoeuvring helicopters shall be exempt from the 500 FT rule if it is conducting manoeuvres, in accordance with normal aviation practice, within boundaries of a licensed or Government aerodrome or, with the written permission of the CAA at other sites. When flying in accordance with the above exemption the helicopter must not be operated closer than 60 M to any persons, vessels, vehicles or structures located outside the aerodrome or site.

  7. A FATO has been created south of the main runway that is available for use by Liverpool John Lennon Airport based helicopters only. The midpoint of the FATO is 531956.30N 0025107.80W with dimensions of 30 M x 30 M.

6   Use of Runways
  1. Variable circuit directions at the discretion of ATC.

  2. Overhead join of the circuit is not available. Pilots should join the circuit as instructed by ATC.

7   Training
  1. Training flights by turbo-jet powered aircraft shall be subject to the prior approval of ATC. They will not normally be permitted on Sundays before 1000 (0900) or after 2000 (1900). On other days they will not be permitted between 2300-0700 (2200-0600). They will be subject to the following conditions:

    1. All crew training circuits shall be carried out at least 1500 FT AAL;

    2. In other respects, training aircraft shall comply with the noise abatement procedures detailed below.

  2. All types of IFR/VFR training are only available by prior arrangement with ATC and are subject to availability of training slots. Pilots are strongly advised to book their training slots with ATC well in advance. Failure to make a booking may result in the aircraft being refused use of the facilities.

  3. Pilots unable to make the booked time must inform ATC as soon as possible so that a new booking may be made. Pilots should inform ATC as soon as possible of booking cancellations. Any flight delayed by 30 minutes or more will be deemed to have been cancelled.

  4. When Runway 09 is the declared runway in use, instrument training to Runway 27 will not be permitted. Only radar vectored ILS/DME approaches will be available for instrument training to Runway 09.

  5. The filing of a flight plan does not constitute a booking to carry out training from the airport.

  6. VFR movements between 0000-0700 (2300-0600) are subject to PPR from ATC 0151-907 1541.

EGGP AD 2.21  NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

1   General

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 LPL Controlled Airspace.

2   Reverse Thrust

To minimise disturbance in areas adjacent to the aerodrome, Flights Crew shall avoid the use of reverse thrust after landing, unless necessary for the safe operation of the aircraft, especially between 2300-0600 (2200-0500).

3   Aircraft Noise Quota System

Liverpool John Lennon Airport operates and manages a Night Noise Quota System, which is based on the CAA Supplement to the UK AIP, pertaining to the Airport Noise Restrictions Notice for London Heathrow, London Gatwick and London Stansted. The quota count value for the take-off and landing by individual aircraft types is shown in the Annexe to the above mentioned Supplement.

  1. The night quota period is between 2300-0700 (2200-0600), with the quota count period being between 2330-0600 (2230-0500).

  2. Operators must supply information appertaining to the noise characteristics (aircraft type, engine type, operating weight and maximum certificated landing or take-off weight as appropriate) and quota count for all non-exempt aircraft using Liverpool John Lennon Airport, between 2300-0700 (2200-0600). This information must be provided as part of the PPR request process and copied to the Environment Team. E-mail: environment@liverpoolairport.com.

  3. Quota Count Operational Restrictions†

    1. 2300-2330 (2200-2230) – Aircraft with quota count of QC/8 and QC/16 must not be scheduled to take-off or land;

    2. 2330-0600 (2230-0500) – Aircraft with quota count of QC/8 and QC/16 must not take-off or be scheduled to land;

    3. 0600-0700 (0500-0600) – Aircraft with quota count of QC/16 must not take-off or be scheduled to land.

    Note: Certain exemptions (including emergencies) apply contact the Environmental Manager for a full list of exemptions.

4   Arrivals

Inbound aircraft, other than light aircraft flying under VFR or Special VFR, shall maintain a height of at least 2000 FT above aerodrome level until cleared to descend for landing. 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 aircraft using the ILS glidepath, and it is recommended that aircraft join final approach at not less than 3 NM.

5   Departures
  1. Runway 27

    1. After take-off all aircraft of more than 5700 KG (12,500 LB) MTWA shall climb straight ahead at maximum rate to 1000 FT AAL before turning.

  2. Runway 09

    1. Between 2300-0700 (2200-0600), Runway 09 will only be available for take-off when over-riding operational considerations necessitate its use, eg performance requirements.

    2. After take-off the initial turn onto outbound heading shall be commenced as soon as practicable, but not below 500 FT AAL and not before passing the end of the runway.

  3. After completion of the initial turn onto outbound heading, all turbo-jet powered aircraft shall reduce power for noise abatement purposes so as to maintain a rate of climb of at least 500 FT per minute at power settings which will ensure progressively decreasing noise levels at points on the ground under the flight path.

6   Engine Testing

Aircraft engine testing is subject to the approval of the Airport Authority and shall only be permitted between the hours of 0700-2300 (0600-2200). Outside these hours engine testing will not be permitted other than in exceptional operational circumstances.

7   Requirements

These requirements may be departed from the extent necessary for avoiding immediate danger or risk to life or property.

8   Continuous Descent Approaches to Runway 09
  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 250-210 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 seperation purposes.

  4. ATC will provide regular range checks. Pilots who require additional track mileage to facilitate a successful CDA should inform ATC as soon as possible.

    Note: Continuous descent approaches are only available on Runway 09. Runway 27 operations may require prolonged flight at lower altitude for airspace integration. See EGGP AD 2.22 2 (e) (iii).

EGGP AD 2.22  FLIGHT PROCEDURES

1   Radio Communications failure Procedures
  1. In the event of complete communication failure in an aircraft, the pilot will adopt the appropriate procedures notified at ENR 1.1.3, with the following exceptions.

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

      1. Fly to the LPL NDB holding point;

      2. hold at the last assigned level until the last acknowledged ETA plus 10 minutes or EAT when this has been given; or, if radio failure occurs after an aircraft has reported over the holding point, hold at the last assigned level until ATA plus 10 minutes, or 10 minutes after the last acknowledged communications with ATC whichever is the later.

      3. then commence descent for landing in accordance with the procedures detailed at ENR 1.1.3 and effect a landing within 30 minutes (or later if able to approach and land visually).

    2. Aircraft which are instructed by ATC to hold at TIPOD or KEGUN, before proceeding to the LPL NDB, will in the event of complete communication failure:

      1. When an Onward Clearance Time has been received and acknowledged, leave TIPOD or KEGUN at that time at the last assigned level and proceed to the LPL NDB, then carry out the procedure as shown at ENR 1.1.3; or

      2. when 'Delay Not Determined' has been transmitted by ATC, leave TIPOD or KEGUN on the route and at the level shown in paragraph iii to leave Controlled Airspace.

    3. The routes and altitudes to be used when leaving the TMA and CTR in accordance with the procedures given at ENR 1.1.3 are shown in the table below; the route to be followed is dependent on the position of the aircraft

      Position at time of decision

      Route

      TIPOD

      Track 360°T at last holding level minus 500 FT.

      KEGUN

      Track 270°T at last holding level minus 500 FT.

      NDB LPL

      Track 330°T at last holding level minus 500 FT ALT.

      VOR WAL

      Track 340°T at last holding level minus 500 FT ALT.

2   Procedure for Inbound Aircraft
  1. Clearance to enter the CTR.

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

  2. Aircraft wishing to enter the CTR or TMA under IFR direct from the London FIR must observe the normal procedure for joining Airways at one of the following Reporting Points: Pole Hill VOR, Wallasey VOR and Whitegate NDB.

  3. Aircraft unable to comply with these procedures because they are not equipped for flight on Airways may, traffic and weather conditions permitting, be cleared to proceed to Liverpool, in accordance with the procedures described at paragraphs 4 to 7.

  4. Standard Terminal Arrival Routes (STARs)

    Standard arrival routes for aircraft inbound from the airways system will be routed via the Standard Terminal Routes (STARs) detailed at AD 2-EGGP-7 charts.

  5. Non-RNAV1 Inbound Aircraft

    Where STARs are designated as RNAV1 Only, Non-RNAV1 aircraft shall file via the existing route structure as featured in the Standard Route Document (SRD). Non-RNAV1 aircraft should not proceed beyond TIPOD/KEGUN without ATC clearance.

  6. Approach Procedures under Radar Control

    1. When inbound traffic is being sequenced by Radar, the approach procedure will be flown under directions from the Radar Controller. Aircraft will be given a track to take up according to the runway-in-use and will be allocated a level. Changes of heading or level will be made only on instructions from the Radar Controller except in the case of radio communication failure in the aircraft or at the Radar Unit. When cleared to descend, aircraft should descend at a rate of at least 500 FT per minute.

    2. In the event of radar failure, new instructions will be issued to each aircraft under radar control and the procedures as defined for approach without radar control put into effect. If radio communication fails at the Radar Unit, pilots on approach will revert to Approach Control for new instructions.

    3. Due to the close proximity of Manchester Airport 20 miles to the east of Liverpool Airport, various restrictions exist regarding descent profiles for aircraft inbound to Liverpool when landing Runway 27. These restrictions are dependent upon the runway in use at Manchester and are detailed below:

      1. Manchester Runway 05L or 05R

        Left Hand Circuit to Runway 27 is NOT available unless an emergency situation exists. All aircraft shall be positioned for a Right Hand Circuit to Runway 27. Aircraft shall be required to pass north abeam Liverpool Airport, WAL 10d, at or below 3000 FT descending to be 2500 FT or below by WAL 18d. In addition, KEGUN arrivals from the south will initially be positioned to the west of Liverpool Airport and will not be able to track within 5 miles of Liverpool Airport until the aircraft is at or below 3000 FT.

      2. Manchester Runway 23L or 23R

        Left Hand Circuit to Runway 27 is available. Aircraft shall be required to pass south abeam Liverpool Airport at or below 3000 FT descending to be 2000 FT or below north abeam WHI NDB. For a Right Hand Circuit to Runway 27, aircraft shall be required to pass north abeam Liverpool Airport, WAL 10d, at or below 4000 FT descending to be 2500 FT or below by WAL 18d.

        More restrictive descent profile requirements do exist. These are implemented on an infrequent basis and when they become effective aircraft will be advised of the requirements on an individual basis.

  7. Approach Procedures Without Radar Control

    1. When Liverpool inbound traffic is not being sequenced by Approach Radar, aircraft will be cleared direct from the holding facility to carry out an Approach Procedure. When cleared, descend in the NDB(L) LPL holding pattern to 2500 FT ALT, then carry out the required procedure in accordance with the Instrument Approach charts.

3   Procedures for Outbound Aircraft
  1. Speed Limit

    1. A speed limit of 250 kt applies to all departures whilst flying below FL 100 unless previously removed by ATC. ATC will endeavour to remove the speed limitation as soon as possible and will use the phrase 'No ATC Speed Restriction'. The phrase must not be interpreted as relieving the pilot of his responsibility for the observance of any noise abatement procedures which may include a speed/power limitation.

    2. In certain weather conditions and perhaps for other reasons of safety, pilots may not be able to comply with the speed limit. When such circumstances are anticipated, the pilot should inform ATC when requesting start-up clearance, stating the minimum speed acceptable. In this event, pilots will be informed before take-off of any higher speed limitation. Similarly, should such circumstances arise during flight, the pilot should immediately advise ATC, stating the minimum speed acceptable.

    3. Should weather conditions or other factors necessitate any modification of this procedure, the relevant information will be broadcast by ATC.

  2. Allocation of Cruising Levels

    1. When a re-clearance of Altitude/Flight Level is issued after take-off by ATC, it is the responsibility of the pilot to comply with at least the minimum altitudes shown in the SID procedure during the climb to the new assigned Altitude/Flight Level.

    2. Exceptionally, when ATC issue a re-clearance below the final SID altitude pilots must not climb above this revised altitude until further clearance is received.

  3. Radio Communication Failure Procedures

    1. In the event of complete radio communication failure in an outbound aircraft, the pilot will adopt the appropriate procedure notified at ENR 1.1.3

    2. For the purpose of radio failure, climb to flight-planned level should be commenced after the last position shown in column 4 of the SIDs where an altitude is specified.

4   Procedures for flights between Manchester and Liverpool
  1. IFR flights between Manchester and Liverpool Airports will normally be cleared via EKLAD 1R/Y off Runway 23R/L or via ASMIM 1S/Z off runway 05L/R to route to TIPOD/KEGUN.

  2. IFR flights between Liverpool and Manchester Airports will normally be cleared via WAL 2T/V departure thence as directed by ATC.

5   Special Aerodrome Procedures

Flights within the local circuit area of aerodromes within the Zone or within access lanes of sectors serving these aerodromes may be made subject to the conditions listed below.

  1. Air Traffic Rules for Liverpool CTR

    1. During the notified hours of watch of Liverpool Air Traffic Control, the rules require that a pilot wishing to fly within the Control Zone must, unless otherwise authorized, comply with the following procedures:

      1. CALL the appropriate Unit on the frequency giving details of the aircraft’s position, level and proposed track;

      2. OBTAIN CLEARANCE from Liverpool ATC for the flight;

      3. LISTEN OUT on the appropriate frequency;

      4. OBEY all instructions from Liverpool ATC.

  2. Local Flying Area and Neston Lane

    1. Within a local flying area of 1.5 NM radius centred on the aerodrome (position 532001N 0025100W), and within an entry/exit lane, width 1 NM, centre-line Liverpool Airport-Neston (532001N 0025100W - 531730N 0030336W) from the boundary of the local flying area to the west boundary of the Control Zone, flights without compliance with IFR requirements may take place subject to the following conditions:

      1. Aircraft to remain below cloud and in sight of the ground or water;

      2. maximum altitude: 1500 FT, Liverpool QNH;

      3. minimum flight visibility: 3 KM;

      4. prior clearance to be obtained from Liverpool ATC.

  3. Mersey Entry/Exit Lane

    1. The local flying area is linked via the River Mersey to Seaforth Docks by means of an entry/exit lane, 1 NM in width, aligned on a centre-line joining positions 531927N 0025345W - 532300N 0025940W - 532741N 0030205W ('SEAFORTH'). Flights may take place without compliance with IFR requirements subject to the following conditions

      1. Aircraft to remain below cloud and in sight of the ground or water;

      2. maximum altitude: 1500 FT, Liverpool QNH;

      3. minimum flight visibility: 3 KM;

      4. prior clearance to be obtained from Liverpool ATC.

6   VFR and Special VFR Flights
  1. Clearance may be requested for Special VFR flight within the Liverpool CTR and will be given whenever the traffic situation permits. Special VFR flights are subject to the general conditions laid down in ENR 1.2.

    Note: Pilots holding a Private Pilots Licence (Aeroplanes) are reminded of the flight visibility requirements for Special VFR flight laid down in Schedule 8 part B of the Air Navigation Order 2005

  2. Aircraft may be given radar vectoring whilst within the CTR if, due to the traffic situation, ATC considers it necessary. Pilots are reminded that it is their responsibility when operating on a Special VFR Clearance to remain at all times clear of cloud and in sight of the surface and in flight conditions which will enable them to determine their flight path and ensure that they comply with 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 these requirements entails a change of heading or level.

  3. Pilots are reminded that a Special VFR clearance applies only to flight within the CTR and does not extend to flight within the surrounding airspace.

  4. Special VFR flight may be subject to delay when they cannot be fitted readily into the traffic flow.

  5. In order to reduce conflict with IFR flights, Special VFR arriving/departing flights will normally be cleared not above a specified altitude and to route via a published Visual Reference Point.

  6. Special VFR clearances will not be issued to fixed wing aircraft departing from Liverpool if the reported weather conditions are: visibility 1800 M or less, or the cloud ceiling is less than 600 FT.

  7. In order to integrate VFR flights to/from Liverpool Airport with the IFR traffic flow, standard routes are established along which VFR clearance will be issued subject to the conditions specified above. The routes provide a uni-directional traffic flow, dependent upon the runway in use at Liverpool Airport. The routes are detailed in paragraph 7 below and shown on the chart at AD-2-EGGP-4. Non-standard routes may be requested but ATC approval will only be granted if the traffic situation allows. Pilots are reminded of the requirements to remain in VMC at all times and to comply with the relevant parts of SERA and the Rules of the Air Regulations 2015, and must advise ATC if at any time they are unable to comply with instructions.

  8. Aircraft requiring to hold south of Liverpool Airport should minimise flight over Stanlow oil refinery (4 NM south of the airport).

  9. Aircraft approaching Liverpool Airport from the south and south east are requested to avoid overflying the industrial chemical works on the south bank of the River Mersey, 1 NM south of the Runcorn Bridge.

10  Frequency Monitoring Code
  1. Pilots operating outside the Liverpool CTR/CTA but within the area bounded by the following coordinates and maintaining a listening watch only on the Liverpool Approach frequency, 119.855 MHz, may select code 5060 with mode Charlie. Solo student pilots fulfilling the above criteria may select code 5067 with mode Charlie.

    530626N 0024349W - 530314N 0024935W -
    530253N 0023748W - 533723N 0023744W -
    533223N 0025907W - 533213N 0031406W -
    532621N 0032107W - 531909N 0032201W -
    531525N 0031346W - 531714N 0031104W -
    531427N 0030140W - 530626N 0024349W

  2. Selection of 5060/5067 does not imply the receipt of an ATC service. Aircraft displaying these codes are not expected to contact ATC under normal circumstances, but remain responsible for their own navigation, separation, terrain clearance and are expected to remain clear of the Liverpool CTR/CTAs at all times. Pilots are reminded that the Manchester CTR/ CTAs and the Hawarden RMZ are in close proximity to the Liverpool CTR/CTAs and the display of 5060/5067 does not constitute authority to transit these areas without permission.

  3. Whilst squawking 5060/5067, pilots should be aware that Liverpool Approach may make blind calls in order to ascertain a pilot's intentions/routing.

  4. When an aircraft ceases to maintain a listening watch or is no longer flying within the area, the pilot will deselect transponder code 5060/5067.
