EEPU AD 2.20 LOCAL AERODROME REGULATIONS

1 Aerodrome Regulations

Information concerning local air traffic at Pärnu aerodrome is given in AIP.

2 Start-Up, Push- and Power-Back Procedures

Engine start-up clearance is not required. The captain shall ensure that the start-up of the aircraft is safe and not dangerous to the infrastructure and equipment of the aerodrome and other aircraft.

It is necessary to use marshalling signals of the marshaller during power-back from stands on apron A and B. Power-back is not allowed without marshalling signals.

3 Use of APU

APU may be used without time restrictions on stands at apron A and B.

APU switch on and/or switch off is forbidden during fuelling.

4 Maintenance Run-Ups

Engine idle checks are allowed on all aircraft stands on all aprons.

High-power aircraft run-ups are allowed without any restrictions only on TWY and RWY.

During the testing of aircraft engines/systems, usage of metal-edged wheel chocks are allowed only during winter weather conditions when TWY is covered with snow, ice or slush.

5 De-Icing Procedures

De-icing of aircraft is conducted on all stands of aprons A. Crews shall inform aerodrome operator when requiring and starting de-icing operations.

6 Parking

Arriving aircraft will be allocated a stand by AFIS unit.

Outside operating hours of the AFIS unit, the pilots of the aircraft are responsible for the selection of the taxiway, stand and runway to be used. Pilots must report on channel 135.305 to inform other potential aircraft in the airspace and traffic area of their intentions.

An aircraft can be assisted by “FOLLOW ME” vehicle. Assistance from the “FOLLOW ME” vehicle can be requested from AFIS unit during its OPR HR.

During parking on stands 1/1b, 2 and 3/3b aircraft edges (wing tips, etc) shall be marked with safety cones, on other stands safety cones are recommended.

6.1 Apron A

Commercial aviation shall use the stands on apron A.

Positioning of aircraft to the stands on apron A is conducted according to the marshalling signals of the marshaller and/or agreement with AFIS unit.

On stands 1/1b, 2 and 3/3b aircraft shall be positioned facing towards the terminal building.

Flight crew shall inform AFIS unit if for some reason (i.e due to wind direction) it is required to position an aircraft on the stand on apron A in a non-standard way.

6.2 Apron B

General aviation shall use the stands on apron B.

Positioning of aircraft on the stands at apron B is decided by the captain of the aircraft according to the markings.

Flight crew shall inform AFIS unit if for some reason (i.e due to wind direction) it is required to position an aircraft on the stand on apron B in a non-standard way. In that case aircraft edges (wing tips, etc) shall be marked with safety cones.

6.3 Parking Area for Helicopters

There is no special parking area for helicopters at Pärnu aerodrome. Helicopters positioning to the stands on the aprons is conducted according to the marshalling signals of the marshaller and/or agreement with AFIS unit.

7 Taxiing

Taxiing instructions are given by AFIS unit during its OPR HR.

During winter conditions the yellow TWY guide lines 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 from the AFIS unit during its OPR HR.

Flight crews are responsible for avoidance of collision with other aircraft, vehicles, humans and obstacles when moving on apron A and B. Movement shall be along yellow TWY guide lines. Marked yellow TWY guide lines shall not be ignored or deviated from them, except when movement on the apron is assisted by “FOLLOW ME” vehicle.

At air temperatures of + 20°C or more, aircraft weighing more than 10 tonnes shall make turns of 180° on RWY 03/21 only at the beginning or end of the RWY.

8 School and Training Flights, Technical Test Flights

IFR and VFR school and training flights and technical test flights do not need prior coordination.

It is not recommended to conduct school and training flights and technical test flights over the city of Pärnu.

9 Helicopter Traffic – Limitations

Helicopters weighing less than 1200 kg may land at the junction of apron and TWY A with the consent of the AFIS unit.

Helicopters weighing 1200 kg and over must land on the RWY.

Landing directly on the stand is not allowed.

Air-taxiing is allowed only for helicopters without wheels. Air-taxiing above grass, other aircrafts, vehicles or humans is forbidden. Air-taxiing is only allowed along yellow TWY guide lines. Taxiing to stands and monitoring of safety distances and the prevention of collisions are the responsibility of the pilot of the aircraft.

Marked yellow TWY guide lines shall not be ignored or deviated from, except when movement on the apron is assisted by “FOLLOW ME” vehicle.

10 Reduced Distances and Procedures for Intersection Take-Off

Reduced declared distances for intersection take-off are described with appropriate sign boards at the intersection of TWY and RWY.

11 Procedures on Movement Area with Visibility of 2000 m and Less

When the visibility at Pärnu aerodrome drops to 2000 m or below, power-back is not recommended.

12 Runway Occupancy Time

It is considered that each aircraft lining up the RWY is ready to depart without considerable delay.

If possible, flight crews should perform pre-departure checks and/or finish with cabin preparation procedures before lining up the RWY.

14 Removal of Disabled Aircraft From Runway

When an aircraft is wrecked on runway, it is the duty of the owner or user of such aircraft to have it removed as soon as possible after getting permission from Estonian Safety Investigation Bureau.

The aircraft may be removed by the aerodrome authority at the owner’s or user’s expense.

EEPU AD 2.21 NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

No noise abatement procedures are established at Pärnu aerodrome. Low level flights should be avoided over the Pärnu city at night time.

EEPU AD 2.22 FLIGHT PROCEDURES

1 General
Flights in Pärnu FIZ/RMZ must be performed in accordance with the visual flight rules or instrument flight rules. An aerodrome flight information service (AFIS) is provided.
