5 De-Icing Procedures

De-icing is allowed on aprons 1 and 2, on maintenance area and on armament areas OW (next to TWY A, 100 m before holding position) and OE (next to TWY E, 100 m before holding position).

6 En-Route Clearance and CTOT Related Procedures

For en-route clearance, departing IFR traffic shallis requested to contact Ämari TWR on FREQ 122120.100900 MHz or 257.800 MHz not earlier than 15 minutes prior to EOBT or estimated Engine Start-up Time, whichever is the earliest, reportingadvising their call sign and stand number.

If a flight regulated by EUROCONTROL Network Manager Operations Centre (NMOC) is ready to depart before given CTOT then they may inform Ämari TWR on FREQ 122120.100900 MHz or 257.800 MHz about the request of REA message.

When the flight is not able to depart within CTOT tolerance, a new CTOT should be requested via Ämari TWR on FREQ 122120.100900 MHz or 257.800 MHz, flight operator or ground handling.

7 Parking

Parking on aprons 1 and 2 is managed by ground handling. An aircraft, landing at Ämari Military Aerodrome for the first time, shall be guided to apron by "FOLLOW ME" vehicle after vacating the runway to TWY. If ground handling is not available then Ämari TWR shall give the parking instructions.

8 Taxiing

Ämari TWR provides taxiing clearance only on TWY or RWY. Ämari TWR will provide taxiing guidelines and information for movement on aprons.

TWY-s do not have stop-bars. During winter the yellow TWY guidelines may not be visible due to precipitations.

An aircraft can be assisted by “FOLLOW ME” vehicle. Assistance from the “FOLLOW ME” vehicle can be requested via Ämari TWR on FREQ 122120.100900 MHz or 257.800 MHz.

When an aircraft is assisted by “FOLLOW ME” vehicle, Ämari TWR shall give taxiing clearance for arriving aircraft until the site where assistance starts and for departing aircraft from the site where assistance finishes.

Aircraft with MTOW greater than 46 000 kg must execute 180 degree turn on runway at the end of runway, on the concrete pavement.

8.1 Taxiing on Aprons

Aircraft movement on aprons shall be coordinated with Ämari TWR on FREQ 122120.100900 MHz or 257.800 MHz. In order to maintain smooth movement, Ämari TWR shall provide (if necessary) aircraft with information and guidelines.

9 Helicopter Traffic - Limitations

Helicopters are allowed to use RWY and TWY E for take-off and landing.

Air-taxiing is allowed only for helicopters without wheels. Air-taxiing over other aircraft, vehicles or humans is forbidden.

10 Reduced Distances

Reduced distances are given in para. EEEI AD 2.13.1.

11 Procedures on Movement Area With a Visibility of 1500 m or Below

Powered-pushback is forbidden when the visibility in Ämari Military Aerodrome drops to or below 1500 m.

12 Low Visibility Procedures for Take-Off (LVPTO)
12.1 RWY and Related Equipment

RWY 06 and 24 are approved for departure operations in RVR conditions between values of 550 m and 150 m (for category B and C aircraft), 550 m and 200 m (for category D aircraft).

12.2 Criteria for the Initiation and Termination of low Visibility Procedures

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

If RVR is greater than 550 m then LVTO shall be terminated (reported by Ämari TWR).

12.3 Description of LVTO

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

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

12.4 Movements on Apron

Assistance for moving on the apron from the "FOLLOW ME" vehicle can be requested via Ämari TWR.

13 Runway Occupancy Time

Ämari TWR is taking into consideration that aircraft lining up on the RWY is ready to depart without substantial delay.

If an aircraft is not ready to depart, flight crew shall inform Ämari TWR on FREQ 122120.100900 MHz or 257.800 MHz before lining up the RWY.

 

EEEI AD 2.21 NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

Ämari Military Aerodrome has not established noise abatement procedures. During night time it is advised not to fly at low altitudes over densely populated areas.

EEEI AD 2.22 FLIGHT PROCEDURES

1 Procedures for IFR Flights Within Tallinn TMA
1.1 Radar Procedures

ATS surveillance service within Tallinn TMA for Tallinn Lennart Meri Airport and Ämari Military Aerodrome is provided 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 Tallinn Tower and Tallinn Approach Control (call-sign Tallinn TWR) and the frequencies (127.900 MHz and 135.900 MHz) will be coupled, allowing communication with ATC unit on both frequencies.

A radar separation minimum of 3 NM (5.6 km) is applied between all identified aircraft within Tallinn TMA except when based on wake turbulence a larger distance between aircraft is required during the approach and departure phases of flight below FL 100.

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

Surveillance radar approaches (SRA) and precision approach radar (PAR) approaches are not conducted.

1.2 Communication Failure
