When a local regulation is of importance for the safe operation of aircraft on the apron, the information will be given to each aircraft by the TallinnTWR.
2 En-route clearance and CTOT related procedure

For en-route clearance Departing IFR traffic is requested to contact Tallinn TWR on FREQ 120.600 MHz not earlier than 10 minutes prior EOBT or estimated Engine Start-up Time, whichever is the latest, advising their call sign and stand/gate number.

When flight, regulated by CFMU, is ready for departure before the filed EOBT, the flight crew should contact Tallinn TWR in order to send a REA message.

Pilots who are aware that they cannot comply with the allocated CTOT, shall duly apply for new CTOT via the airline operator or handling agent.

3 Low visibiltiy procedures for take-off (LVTO)
3.1 Runway and associated equipment

Runways 08 and 26 are approved for departure operations in RVR conditions between values of 550 m and 150 m (550-200 m for category D aircraft).

3.2 Criteria for the initiation and termination of LVTO

LVTO operations will be provided when requested by a flight crew to conduct departure operations in RVR conditions less than a value of 550 m (reported by Tallinn TWR). This request should be made to Tallinn TWR at least 30 minutes before intended departure to permit the appropriate preparations by the aerodrome units.

3.3 Description of ground marking and lighting

All taxiways (except taxiway D) are equipped with green TWY center line lights. Entry to and exit from RWY is not permitted via taxiway D (Delta).

3.4 Description of LVTO

Aircraft movements on manoeuvring area will be restricted to one aircraft movement at a time while departure operations in RVR conditions less than a value of 550 m are conducted in order to ensure protection of the runway.

Operation of vehicles on the manoeuvring area is not permitted during departures in RVR conditions less than a value of 550 m.

3.5 Movements on apron

Taxiing is restricted to one aircraft movement at a time. Assistance on the apron from the "FOLLOW ME" vehicle can be requested via Tallinn TWR.

4 Operation of transponders on the ground
4.1 General
The Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control System (A-SMGCS), supported with (SMR) and Mode S multilateration, is installed at Lennart Meri Tallinn airport. The A-SMGCS is used as a support tool by ATC and airport units to receive, coordinate and pass information to units concerned and to pilots on appropriate frequencies.
Whenever the aircraft is equipped with Mode S having an aircraft identification feature, the aircraft identification (i.e. actual call sign used in flight) shall be set in the transponder. The crew shall use the aircraft identification as specified in the ICAO flight plan (e.g. ELL123; SAS234; DLH3456). If no ICAO flight plan has been filed, the aircraft registration shall be used instead.
4.2 Mode S transponders shall be operated in accordance with the following:
  1. Departing aircraft:
    • Set aircraft identification and assigned Mode A code, if no Mode A code assigned use A2000;
    • Immediately prior push-back or taxi (actual movement), whichever is earlier, select automatic mode (e.g. AUTO) or if automatic mode is not available, select “ON” (or “XPDR”);
    • Select “TCAS” (or “TA/RA”) only when approaching runway holding position.
  2. Arriving aircraft:
    • As soon as practicable after landing deselect “TCAS” (or “TA/RA”);
    • Automatic mode (e.g. AUTO) shall be continuously selected or, if automatic mode is not available, select “ON” (or “XPDR”);
    • Continuously squawk the last assigned Mode A code until fully parked;
    • Immediately after parking - set the Mode A2000, then select “OFF” or “STBY”.
During towing or repositioning of aircraft, if no ICAO flight plan has been filed, the aircraft shall set A2000. The aircraft registration shall be used as Mode S identification.
4.3 Mode 3/A,C (non-Mode S) transponders shall be operated in accordance with the following:
  1. Departing aircraft:
    • Set assigned Mode A code, if no Mode A code assigned use A2000;
    • Immediately prior push-back or taxi (actual movement), whichever is earlier, select automatic mode (e.g. AUTO) or if automatic mode is not available, select “ON” (or “XPDR”);
  2. Arriving aircraft:
    • Automatic mode (e.g. AUTO) shall be continuously selected or, if automatic mode is not available, select “ON” (or “XPDR”);
    • Continuously squawk the last assigned Mode A code until fully parked;
    • Immediately after parking - set the Mode A2000, then select “OFF” or “STBY”.
During towing or repositioning of aircraft, if no ICAO flight plan has been filed, the aircraft shall set A2000.
4.4 Overall precautions at transponders (both Mode S and Mode 3/A,C) usage.
From On-Block to Off-Block (at gates/stands) the aircraft transponders shall never be transmitting (to avoid reflections and false alarms).
Inside hangars avoid switching on any kind of onboard radio transmitting equipment.
In case of any ACAS/TCAS (TA/RA) alerts in Movement Area - please report to Estonian ANS by email atm@eans.ee.
All kind of transponder testing and related repair or maintenance works at the aerodrome shall be coordinated with Estonian ANS in advance by email transponders@eans.ee.
Planned works – at last 48h beforehand, unplanned works – as soon as possible.
5 Start-up and push/power-back procedures

All turbine powered aircraft are subject for engine start-up approval from Tallinn TWR on FREQ 120.600 MHz.

When the approval for engine start-up has been granted by Tallinn TWR , a delay caused by other traffic is not more than 10 minutes, based on the time the aircraft is ready for take-off.

Approval for engine start-up and push/power-back shall only be requested if the aircraft is fully ready (including the tug is connected) to carry out requested manoeuvres immediately.

On Apron A aircraft stands, where aircraft push-back takes place, the start-up of the main engine(s) of turbojet aircraft is allowed to proceed after commencing of push-back procedure on the authority of the marshaller.

When aircraft is not mounted or the APU is not working then only one main engine is allowed to start-up before movement on Apron A aircraft stands

In case of power-back procedure the clearance for engine start-up is given before movement. Power-back from stands is not allowed when visibility deteriorates to or below 1000 m.

Requirements for performing push/power-back procedures is given in paragraph 9 "Aircraft stands".

Simultaneous push/power-backs from adjacent aircraft stands/gates are not allowed.

6 De-icing

De-icing of aircraft is allowed on all apron stands. Coordination on FREQ 131.900 MHz.

7 Taxiing
7.1 Taxiing on apron A

Taxiing of aircraft on apron A is allowed only after approved by Tallinn TWR according to taxiing instructions.

Outside ATC Service Boundary, Tallinn TWR will only provide instructions and information necessary to maintain an orderly flow of air traffic. During taxiing, the pilot shall comply with traffic regulation on apron taking into account instructions and information provided by Tallinn TWR in order to avoid collision with other aircraft, vehicles, persons or objects. Neither deviations nor shortcuts are allowed except under the guidance of marshaller or “FOLLOW ME” vehicle or after special instructions given by Tallinn TWR.

Arriving aircraft will be allocated a stand number by the Tallinn TWR. Assistance from the “FOLLOW ME” vehicle can be requested via the Tallinn TWR.

Departing aircraft shall obtain taxi and push-back procedure instructions from Tallinn TWR on FREQ 120.600 MHz.

7.2 Taxiing on aprons, except on apron A

Movement of aircraft on aprons other than apron A is not subject to neither approval nor instructions by Tallinn TWR. While taxiing on aprons other than apron A, the pilot shall assume full responsibility for avoiding collisions with other aircraft, vehicles, persons or objects and follow yellow taxiing guide lines. Assistance from the “FOLLOW ME” vehicle can be requested via Tallinn TWR.

7.3 Taxiing during winter conditions
Taxiways on apron area are not equipped with centreline lights. The taxi guide lines may not be visible due to snow. Assistance from the “FOLLOW ME” vehicle can be requested via Tallinn TWR.
7.4 Taxiing clearances

Tallinn TWR will issue clearance for taxiing aircraft only within ATC Service Boundary, presented on Aerodrome Chart (See AD-2.EETN-ADC). On apron A, outside the area of ATC responsibility, Tallinn TWR will give instructions and information for taxiing.

Aircraft, landing on RWY 08, are expected to vacate the RWY via TWY F or E provided the deceleration is completed before the intersection and no backtrack is needed.

Aircraft, landing on RWY 26, are normally advised, in conjunction with the landing clearance the TWY they shall vacate the RWY.

RWY 08/26 - 180 DEG turnover must be performed with radius more than 2 m for ACFT inner gear.

Taxi clearances are given to a designated holding or parking position indicating only the apron entry/exit taxiway to be used. Remaining of the taxi route is considered to be completed either on TWY A or apron.

Examples:

"TAXI TO HOLDING POINT FOXTROT VIA CHARLIE" or "TAXI TO GATE FIVE VIA BRAVO"

Taxi holding positions are designated as follows:

A8 – entry to manoeuvring area from the Terminal southern parking positions (STOP BAR equipped)
B1 – RWY holding position on TWY B, between RWY and TWY A (without STOP BAR)
B2 – entrance to manoeuvring area from apron A next to terminal building (STOP BAR equipped)
C1 – RWY holding position on TWY C, between RWY and TWY A (without STOP BAR)

C2 – entrance to manoeuvring area from apron A further from terminal building (STOP BAR equipped)

The rest of TWY holding positions are named after relevant TWY designator. When visibility detoriates to or below 1000 m (see p 7.5, Visibility conditions 2 and 3), then RWY holding positions B1 and C1 will not be used.

Taxiing on RWY line-up clearance from Tallinn TWR is needed.

7.5 Visibility conditions in taxiing at manoeuvring area
For the purpose of describing the provision of an aerodrome control service on the manoeuvring area at Lennart Meri Tallinn Airport in the context of varying visibilities, the following four visibility conditions are defined for both day and night operations:
  1. Visibility condition 1 - Meteorological visibility is 1000 m or more
    • Visibility is sufficient for the pilot to taxi and to avoid collision with other traffic on TWYs and at intersections by visual reference, and for personnel of control units to exercise control over all traffic on the bases of visual surveillance.
  2. Visibility condition 2 - Meteorological visibility is less than 1000 m but RVR is 550 m or more
    • Visibility is sufficient for the pilot to taxi and to avoid collision with other traffic on TWYs and at intersections by visual reference, but insufficient for personnel of control units to exercise control over all traffic on the bases of visual surveillance.
  3. Visibility condition 3 - RVR is less than 550 m but more than 75 m
    • Visibility is sufficient for the pilot to taxi and to avoid collision with other traffic on TWYs and at intersections by visual reference, but insufficient for personnel of control units to exercise control over all traffic on the bases of visual surveillance.
  4. Visibility condition 4 - RVR is 75 m or less
    • Visibility is insufficient for the pilot to taxi by visual guidance only.
7.6 Taxiing constraints

Insufficient safety distances set the following taxiing constraints for aircraft using their own power:

Taxiway (TWY)
Wingspan/rotor diameter
B (between TWY A and apron A)
74 m
C (between TWY A and apron A)
74 m
To apron B
22 m
To apron C
22 m
To AVGAS gas station
20 m
8 Parking
8.1 Parking on apron A

Arriving aircraft will be informed by Tallinn TWR about allocated stand normally after landing in conjunction with the taxi clearance.

Parking of aircraft on terminal stands of apron A is guided by visual docking guidance systems placed on stands (See chap 9 "Aircraft Stands"). If the stands visual docking guidance system is not working, then taxiing to this stand is allowed only after marshaller signal.

8.2 Parking area for General aviation

For general aviation aircraft stands are allocated on apron C (General aviation apron). As a rule, all arriving general aviation aircraft will be guided to stands by marshaller or "FOLLOW ME" vehicle. Excemptions are made for Tallinn aerodrome based aircraft.

In case of guidance by "FOLLOW ME" vehicle is required or requested by flight crew, the taxi clearance to appropriateTWY on the ATC Service Boundary will be issued by Tallinn TWR where the guidance will be taken over by the "FOLLOW ME" vehicle.

8.3 Parking area for helicopters
There is no special parking area for helicopters at Tallinn aerodrome. Helicopters will be forwarded a stand number by Tallinn TWR and will be guided there by marshaller/"FOLLOW ME" vehicle. Exemptions are made for Tallinn aerodrome based helicopters.

10 School and training flights - technical test flights
10.1 School and training flights
IFR school, training and technical test flights at Lennart Meri Tallinn aerodrome must only be made after the permission has been obtained from ATS. Prior coordination of VFR school, training and technical test flights is recommended.

Application must be made to Tallinn ACC Operational Supervisor by phone +372 625 8254 at least 2 hours prior to the intended departure.

Application must contain the following:
  1. Type of aircraft and call sign,
  2. Purpose of the flight or training programme,
  3. Time of departure and estimated flight time,
  4. Contact information.

In case the permission for such flights has been granted the day before the intended departure or earlier, confirmation on the designated time interval must be received from Tallinn ACC Operational Supervisor by phone +372 625 8254 at least 2 hours prior to the estimated time of departure.

Note: Permission for such a flight does not give any priorities.

10.2 Maintenance run-ups

Aircraft engines and systems testing and also maintenance run-ups testing are allowed to be conducted on the intersection of TWY A and TWY F.

Person responsible for aircraft testing must previously coordinate testing with Apron Control 30 minutes before beginning of planned testing by phone +372 605 8461.

During testing TWY F is closed for taxiing aircraft.

Maintenance run-up on idle power is allowed without coordination on apron A (except terminal stands where maintenance run-up is forbidden), B and C aircraft stands.

Maintenance run-up at terminal stands A1, A2, A4, A5, A6, A7, A8, A9, A12, A13 and A15 is forbidden.

11 Reduced distances and procedures for intersection take-off
11.1 Reduced distances

Reduced declared distances applicable for aircraft take-offs from appropriate TWY intersections and from DEP POINT V (Victor) are shown on Aerodrome Obstacle Chart (see AD-2.EETN-AOC) and described in para see AD 2.13.1 "Reduced declared distances for take-off".

11.2 Aircraft take-off positions and procedures

Take-off positions on which reduced declared distances are based on (see AD 2.13.1 "Reduced declared distances for take-off") are shown on Aerodrome Obstacle Chart as "REDUCED DECLARED DISTANCES CALCULATION POINT" symbol.

Take-off positions on the RWY are not marked with painted markings or sign board, with exception of DEP POINT V which is marked with sign board, but is not co-located with any TWY.

Tallinn TWR expects that taking-off from RWY 26 will take place at the intersection of TWY F. Flight crew must inform Tallinn TWR as soon as possible, but before heading to the RWY at the latest, when take-off from TWY F intersection is not possible and backtrack is necessary.

Take-offs from DEP POINT V can be performed upon request using the following expressions:

Aircraft: "REQUEST DEPARTURE POINT V, RWY 26"

Tallinn TWR: "LINE UP RWY 26, DEPARTURE POINT V"

In order to expedite the traffic flow, take-offs from RWY 26 may be performed by aircraft belonging to the same or lighter wake turbulence category, from intersection of TWY F or DEP POINT V while another aircraft is lining up to take-off position at the beginning of RWY 26 and the information is passed to the latter.

12 Runway occupancy time

Tallinn TWR operates on a bases of that each aircraft, if lined up on the RWY, is ready for immediate departure. Pilots should ensure, in accordance with safety and standard operating procedures that they are able to taxi into the correct holding position and after approval for line up on the RWY as soon as preceding aircraft has commenced its take-off or has landed.

If possible, cabin checks and cabin readiness should be achieved before line-up; any checks requiring completion on the runway should be kept to minimum. If flight crew is not capable following these requirements Tallinn TWR must be notified before lining up on the RWY.

Note: As a rule Tallinn TWR will consider that 5 minutes from the time the aircraft starts taxiing is enough to in order to complete all cabin checks and achieve cabin readiness.

13 Helicopter traffic limitations
Air-taxiing is allowed only for helicopters with no undercarriage. Air-taxiing over grass areas, other aircraft, vehicles or personnel is prohibited. Yellow taxi guide lines have to be followed at all times while air-taxiing.

Helicopters take-offs and landings are permitted only on RWY, on intersection of TWYs A and C and on the intersection of TWY A and apron B (Boarder Guard Aviation Group apron).

14 Removal of disabled aircraft from runway
When an aircraft is wrecked on the runway, it is the duty of the owner or user of such aircraft to have it removed as soon as possible. If a wrecked aircraft is not removed from the runway as quickly as possible by the aircraft owner or user, the aircraft will be removed by the aerodrome authority using airport rescue equipment (also involving contracting partners if necessary) at the aircraft's owner's or user's expense.

EETN AD 2.22 FLIGHT PROCEDURES

1 Procedures for IFR flights within Tallinn TMA
1.1 Radar Procedures

ATS surveillance service is provided within Tallinn TMA by Tallinn Approach Control (call-sign TALLINN RADAR) on FREQ 127.900 MHz. During night time and at certain times of a day (depending on the traffic volume in TMA and at the airport), ATS surveillance service within Tallinn TMA will be provided by combined Tower/Approach Control (call-sign TALLINN TOWER) and the frequencies (127.900 MHz and 120.600 MHz) will be coupled, allowing simultaneous communications on both frequencies.

A radar separation minimum of 5 NM is applied between all identified aircraft within Tallinn TMA. In case Tallinn MSSR is unserviceable, all arriving aircraft are vectored to at least 12 NM final at ALT 4000 ft.

Temperature correction is added to minimum safe altitude (MSA) by ATC if the ground temperature falls below -7°C.

Surveillance radar approaches and precision radar approaches are not conducted.

1.2 Communication failure

In case of communication failure the procedures published in international Rules of the Air (ICAO Annex 2) shall be followed.

Aircraft having telephone on board call: +372 625 8254 and if possible stay on line until instructed by ATC.

1.3 Arrival procedures

Flights intending to land at Lennart Meri Tallinn International Airport shall file their flight plan according to ENR 1.10 “Flight Planning”.

Normally the published standard arrival routes (STAR) are not used. Before reaching Tallinn TMA entry fix Tallinn ATC will clear arriving flights to:

  • a clearance limit depending on the runway in use;
    • EKSOT – IFRWY 08
    • LARKU – IAF/FAF RWY 08
    • KUVOR – IFRWY 26
    • OLMON – IAF/FAF RWY 26
  • fly a certain heading.

Arriving aircraft will normally be radar vectored for an instrument or visual approach to the appropriate final approach track of the landing runway in use.

The holding patterns (also on Instrument Approach Charts – ICAO) established at the IAF of each runway are described as follows:

Tallinn ATC will sequence aircraft on final approach with a spacing of 5 NM as a minimum. This spacing will be increased significantly in case heavy wake turbulence category aircraft is involved in the sequence.

All aircraft shall follow speed limit MAX IAS 250 kt within Tallinn TMA (below FL 100), unless a different speed is instructed by ATC. If unable to comply, advice ATC immediately.

All IFR flights shall maintain MNM IAS 160 kt to DME 4 GP on ILS approach or DME 5 TLL on VOR/DME approach, unless a different speed is instructed by ATC. If unable to comply, advice ATC immediately.

Pilots are reminded that VFR flights may take place in Tallinn CTR and in uncontrolled airspace below the TMA. Therefore, a restriction to maintain ALT 2200 ft until established on final track might be given by ATC to flights conducting a visual approach.

1.4 Departure Procedures

For en-route clearance the departing IFR traffic is requested to contact Tallinn TWR on FREQ 120.600 MHz not earlier than 10 minutes prior to EOBT or estimated Engine Start-up Time, whichever is the earliest, announcing their call sign, stand/gate number and the designator of the latest ATIS information received.

En-route clearance is issued in the form of omnidirectional departure to a TMA exit fix or to radar heading. Cleared intermediate level will always be specified in the ATC clearance. En-route cruising level will be issued after take-off by TALLINN RADAR or TALLINN CONTROL. In omnidirectional departure, climb on RWY track to MNM 830 ft before starting a turn, unless a higher altitude is specified by ATC. Turns before DER are not accommodated.

In order to make an early turn (before reaching ALT 830 ft), a clearance for a visual departure may be requested from or cleared by the ATC. To execute a visual departure, the reported meteorological conditions must meet the following criteria: VIS 10 km or more and ceiling 2200 ft or more. Visual departures are not allowed at night time.

In case a clearance to execute a visual departure (in the form of VISUAL LEFT/RIGHT TURN) is given by ATC and acknowledged by the crew, the crew is held responsible for maintaining obstacle clearance until reaching a MSA 2200 ft MSL.

Separation will be provided by ATC between an aircraft executing a visual departure and other departing and arriving aircraft.

After take-off climb as rapidly as possible through ALT 2000 ft.

All aircraft shall follow speed limit MAX IAS 250 kt within Tallinn TMA (below FL 100), unless a different speed is instructed by ATC.

1.5 Visual manoeuvring (circling)

Visual manoeuvring (circling approach) is authorized on the south side of aerodrome only.

OCA for each RWY - see the Instrument Approach Chart (IAC).

2 Procedures for VFR flights within Tallinn CTR

An aircraft conducting VFR flight shall plan its entry and/or exit to/from Tallinn CTR via the entry/exit points shown on the Visual Approach Chart (VAC) unless otherwise authorized by ATC.

VFR flights intended to be conducted solely within Tallinn CTR shall indicate so in their flight plan entering only “LOCAL” in FPL route field.

VFR flights flying at levels higher than 1200 ft MSL and intending to enter Tallinn CTR are required to enter Tallinn CTR at altitude 1200 ft or lower.

VFR flights intending to enter Tallinn CTR from uncontrolled airspace, shall establish radio contact with TALLINN TWR on FREQ 120.600 MHz at least 5 minutes before the entry to obtain clearance for flight in CTR.

Arriving and departing aircraft are requested to report receipt of ATIS broadcast by reading back relevant designator of information and QNH on initial radio contact.

If not instructed otherwise squawk A2000.

From the south airport borders on Pirita river – lake Ülemiste connecting canal, depositing pond with the island in the middle and the moory area, partially covered with mixed forest. Tallinn residential and industrial areas are situated in the north and west. The main city refuse dump is located at the SW direction at the distance of 11 km from the aerodrome.

The nearest breeding places of Gulls are situated on the NE and S bank of the Ülemiste lake, and depositing pond. Breeding of crows is observed in the northern part of aerodrome at the buildings on a site.
2 A day’s bird migration in the vicinity of the airport

Gulls: Arrive in the evening-time, in the morning at 0700 – 0800 leave overwhelmingly, at the heights of 150 to 300 ft AGL.

Crows: Overflights observed at 0400 in the NE direction, at 2000 in the SW direction at the heights of 150 to 1000 ft AGL.

Pilots are advised to operate landing lights during take-off, climb-out, approach-to-land and landing.
3 Bird dispersal methods and means
Reducing of an influence of the airport vicinity in cooperation with local authorities:
  • waste dumps, disposal of wastes from processing of zoophytic and vegetal materials.
On the airport territory:
  • settlement of land usage, excavation works;
  • cutting of grass to the height of 15 cm with following growth up to 25-30 cm.
Auditory natural sound equipment:
  • luring away (flockmates’ distress calls);
