    Slot times must be obtained at least one day before the flight. It is also possible to obtain a slot time longer in advance. If a flight cannot take place, the slot time must always be cancelled, even if cancellation occurs on the day of the flight. To cancel a slot time, the Flight Service Centre should be contacted.

EHRD AD 2.22 FLIGHT PROCEDURES

1 INSTRUMENT DEPARTURE PROCEDURES
1.1 Introduction

The instrument departure procedures are based on ICAO Annex 2 and on ICAO Documents 4444-ATM/501 (PANS-ATM), 7030 (SUPPS) and 8168-OPS/611 (PANS-OPS).

in the Rotterdam TMAs VFR flights without ATC clearance are permitted. For such flights radio communications is not compulsory.
1.2 Instrument departure procedures
1.2.1 Start-up permission

Pilots shall request permission from ATC before starting engines and when applicable report a cross-bleed start. The request for start-up shall be made to Rotterdam Delivery after all preparations for departure have been made (doors closed etc.) and shall include:

  • aircraft identification (e.g. KL101).
  • position (e.g. D3).
  • ATIS information (e.g. information R).
  • flight rules (e.g. IFR).
  • destination (e.g. London).
  • request start-up.

Permission for start-up will be issued either immediately or at a specified time. Since ATC planning of outbound traffic (involving en route clearance and co-ordination with adjacent ACCs) is based on the start-up time, the pilot shall be able to comply with start-up and taxi permission. Any delay in start-up or taxiing shall be reported to ATC immediately. In case of indefinite delay the probable duration of delay will be given.

During the hours of the ATIS broadcast no MET information will be issued to departing aircraft except RVR (see EHRD AD 2.18).

1.2.2 En route clearance
1.2.2.1 Contents

The en route clearance will be issued after start-up clearance has been given by Rotterdam Delivery. An en route clearance contains:

  1. Clearance limit: airport of destination.
  2. Standard instrument departure (SID).
  3. SSR code.
  4. Departure instructions if applicable.
  5. CTOT if applicable.

Example of an en route clearance: "KLM345 cleared to London, REFSO 2A Departure, squawk 2123, slot 25".

1.2.2.2 Standard instrument departures

The instrument departure procedures are laid down in standard instrument departures (SIDs). SIDs are designated in accordance with ICAO Annex 11. SID designation is composed of the following elements:

  • a basic indicator, i.e. a significant point.
  • a validity indicator, i.e. a number from 1 to 9 indicating the valid version of a specific SID.
  • a route indicator, i.e. a letter representing the runway where the SID begins.

SIDs are published for RWY 06 and 24.

if not able to comply with the crossing conditions prescribed in the SIDs, inform Rotterdam Delivery.
1.2.2.3 Departure instructions (Contents item d.)

Instructions containing deviations from the standard instrument departure may be added to the en route or take-off clearance. These instructions may comprise an opposite turn after take-off, maintaining a specified heading or temporary altitude restrictions; this additional instructions amend the relevant part of the SID only.

1.2.2.4 General instructions
  1. Climb as rapidly as practicable to at least 2000 ft AMSL.
  2. VOR radial interception angle: in principle 45°. If the indicated angle exceeds 45° initiate turn in due time in order not to overshoot the radial.
1.2.3 Taxi procedures

Aircraft shall request taxi clearance from Rotterdam Tower.

1.2.4 Transfer of control to Schiphol APP

Aircraft proceeding via the Schiphol TMAs will normally be transferred to Schiphol APP during crossing.

1.3 Communication failure

See ENR 1.3.

1.4 SID descriptions
1.4.1 General remarks
1.4.1.1 Procedures and constraints
  • Transition altitude: 3000 ft AMSL.
  • SIDs are based on an average climb rate of 2000 ft/min.
  • SIDs have to be considered as minimum noise routings which shall be strictly adhered to.
  • Initiate turns in due time in order not to overshoot radials.
  • Turn radii based on a 25° bank angle.
  • Radial interception angle: 45°.
  • MAX 250 KIAS below FL 100 unless otherwise instructed.
  • For continuous routings and crossing conditions on ATS routes as applicable see paragraph 1.4.3.
1.4.1.2 Additional departure instructions

Especially propeller-driven aircraft can expect additional departure instructions. These instructions may be added to the en route or take-off clearance and may comprise a specific heading or temporary altitude restriction. Such additives amend the relevant part of the SID only.

1.4.1.3 Application of RNAV

The Netherlands encourages the use of RNAV routes stored in a pre-programmed navigation database on board of aircraft. Although there may be differences between the RNAV and conventional description of a route (vertically: turn altitudes and/or laterally: turn anticipation effects), the resulting flight paths are considered identical by ATC. Therefore, flying the route using the RNAV coding from the navigation database will not result in route violations.
Furthermore:

  • Connect FMS as early as possible.
  • The EH-waypoints shall not be used in RTF procedures.
  • Turn anticipation is mandatory for all waypoints except those which are underlined, these waypoints shall be overflown.
  • The navigation aid (e.g. VOR) mentioned in the column "Expected path terminator" is for selection of MAG station declination only.
1.4.1.4 Application of radius to fix (RF) turns

For some SIDs, differences in the way the coding for these SIDs is processed by the various FMS systems may result in considerable track dispersion during turns. This track dispersion can be reduced by the application of radius to fix turns, which results in concentration of the aircraft flight path. Thus in order to enhance noise abatement, for the RWY 06 REFSO 2A and TULIP 3A SIDs an alternative coding comprising a radius to fix turn is introduced.

To distinguish between the standard coding and the coding comprising the RF turn the letter "Y" has been added after the SID identification. Consequently two ARINC contractions are listed for the REFSO 2A and TULIP 3A SIDs:

  1. [REFS2A] or [TULI3A] is the standard designator where only fly-over and fly-by turns are applied;
  2. [REF2AY] or [TUL3AY] is the designator with the addition "Y" where the RF turn coding is applied.

In the ATC clearance, only the standard (unchanged) designator will be used without changes in the ATC clearance phraseology. This clearance allows for selection of either coding version as the resulting flight paths are considered identical by ATC.

For the use of the RF coding version the following requirements are applicable:

  • The aircraft must be equipped with an FMS comprising a pre-loaded navigation database and a navigation display.
  • The aircraft FMS must be capable of processing the RF path terminator.
  • The aircraft FMS must use GNSS as the primary navigation sensor.
  • The operator must hold a P-RNAV or RNAV1 operations approval issued by their state of registry which is compliant with the JAA Temporary Guidance Leaflet No. 10 (TGL-10) or equivalent.
1.4.2 Specific remarks
  1. RWY 06 REFSO and TULIP SID: in addition to the standard coding [REFS2A] and [TULI3A] an alternative coding [REF2AY] and [TUL3AY] comprising radius to fix (RF) turns is available. See paragraph 1.4.1.4 for requirements to use the RF coding version. Due to noise abatement aircraft with the appropriate equipment and approval are encouraged to fly the RF procedure.
1.4.3 Continuous routings for SIDs with crossing conditions on ATS routes as applicable
aircraft may only continue to climb above 3000 ft AMSL after an ATC clearance has been received.
REF EHRD AD 2.22 paragraph 1.2.2 "En route clearance": if not able to comply with the crossing conditions prescribed in the SIDs, inform Rotterdam Delivery before take-off.

2 INSTRUMENT APPROACH PROCEDURES
2.1 Introduction

The arrival, instrument approach and holding procedures are based on ICAO Annex 2 and on ICAO Documents 4444-ATM/501 (PANS-ATM), 7030 (SUPPS) and 8168-OPS/611 (PANS-OPS). During initial and intermediate approach to Rotterdam Airport radar services may be provided by Schiphol APP.

in the Rotterdam TMAs VFR flights without ATC clearance are permitted. For such flights radio communication is not compulsory.
2.2 Arrival
2.2.1 Arrival clearance

At, or before, entering the Amsterdam Control Area, an arrival clearance will be issued by Amsterdam ACC containing:

  1. Standard arrival route1) or direct route.
  2. Main landing runway2).
  3. Level instructions (normally descent instructions).
  4. Any other necessary instructions or information.
  1. when cleared via a standard arrival route (STAR), the clearance limit is the initial approach fix (lAF).
  2. only issued bywhen ATISATIS (see EHRD AD 2.18) oris ATCout of service.
2.2.2 Level restrictions
  1. Flights via ENKOS or FLEVO should comply with the following crossing condition: cross ENKOS or FLEVO at FL 070.
  2. Flights via PUTTY, NICKY, HELEN or COSTA should comply with the following crossing condition: cross STD NDB at FL 060 or below, unless otherwise instructed.
  3. Flights via REDFA, LAMSO, MOLIX or TOPPA should comply with the following crossing condition: cross MASOS at FL 060 or below, unless otherwise instructed.
2.2.3 Transfer of control
  1. To Schiphol APP: inbound traffic via ENKOS or FLEVO will be transferred to Schiphol APP.
  2. To Rotterdam APP: transfer to Rotterdam APP will normally take place when entering Rotterdam TMAs.
  3. To Rotterdam TWR: transfer to Rotterdam TWR will normally take place after intercepting final approach.
2.3 Initial approach
2.3.1 General procedures

Holding and entry procedures and the calculations of the associated protected areas are in accordance with PANS-OPS Volume II, part 4. Since separation is based on the calculated areas, compliance with these in-flight procedures is essential.

2.3.2 Approach instructions

Approach instructions will contain as applicable:

  1. Additional instructions with respect to clearance limit, route and level.
  2. Approach procedure.
  3. Runway in use1).
  4. EAT, if holding procedures are applied.
  5. QNH.
  6. Transition level1).
  7. MET information1).
  8. Runway condition1).
  1. during the hours of ATIS (see EHRD AD 2.18), broadcast may be omitted as far as the information is included in the ATIS broadcast.
2.3.3 RNAV approach procedure

On initiative of ATC, the RNAV ROT 1R approach to ILS RWY 24 can be assigned to aircraft inbound Rotterdam Airport. This approach procedure has been introduced in order to reduce noise nuisance, fuel consumption, and to provide flexible and efficient ATC dispatch.

2.3.3.1 General

The RNAV ROT 1R approach procedure in the Rotterdam TMA is developed with the following safeguards:

  • The RNAV part is completed on entering the intermediate segment in which ILS-LOC interception takes place.
  • A radar display showing the position of the aircraft is available to ATC.
2.3.3.2 Clearances and constraints

Pilots may be instructed to fly the RNAV ROT 1R approach to ILS RWY 24.

  • This RNAV approach procedure starts at the IAF ROT.
  • The clearance for the RNAV approach procedure includes the clearance to execute the subsequent ILS or LOC instrument approach procedure.
  • Once the crew reports to be established on the final approach segment, the transfer to Rotterdam TWR will take place. Landing clearance will be issued by the TWR controller.

Further details are published in paragraph 2.6.2 and on the relevant instrument approach chart AD 2.EHRD-IAC-24.2.

2.3.3.3 Aircraft and operator requirements

For the use of the RNAV approach procedure the following requirements are applicable:

  • The aircraft must be equipped with an FMS comprising a pre-loaded navigation database and a navigation display.
  • The aircraft FMS must use GNSS as the primary navigation sensor.
  • The operator must hold an RNAV1 or P-RNAV operations approval issued by their state of registry, which is compliant with the JAA Temporary Guidance Leaflet No. 10 (TGL-10) or equivalent.
  • Pilots must pay special attention to the large ILS interception angle of 88 degrees and the reduced length of the intermediate segment of 2.2 NM. The length of the intermediate segment is shorter than the ICAO minimum in case of an ILS interception angle of more than 60 degrees (3.0 NM).
2.4 Intermediate and final approach
2.4.1 Final approach procedures
2.4.1.1 Final approach procedure

ILS approaches can be made to RWY 06 and 24. Instrument approaches to RWY 06 and 24 can be made with the assistance of VOR RTM. When radar control is exercised the aircraft will be directed to a position, from which a final instrument approach or a visual approach can be made.

2.4.1.2 Visual approach

A visual approach will only be allowed or offered if visibility >= 5 km and ceiling >= 1200 ft AMSL. To minimise noise nuisance aircraft executing a visual approach shall intercept the final approach leg at an altitude of at least 1000 ft AMSL, unless residential areas can be avoided.

2.4.1.3 Circling approach

For each runway at Rotterdam Airport a circling approach may be allowed or offered. For OCA (OCH) see relevant instrument approach chart AD 2.EHRD-IAC-xx.x.

2.4.2 Missed approach procedure
2.4.2.1 General

All turns shall be the shortest turn and in case of a 180° turn that turn shall be to the left, unless otherwise specified below or instructed by ATC.

2.4.2.2 Missed approach procedure during instrument approach

See relevant instrument approach chart AD 2.EHRD-IAC-xx.x.

2.4.2.3 Missed approach procedure during visual approach

Turn to the intended landing runway, intercept the runway track MAG of that runway while:

  1. When visual:
    • remain visual and inform ATC, or

the indicated situation is applicable for an initial instrument approach to RWY 06. Circling approaches southeast of RWY 06/24 and extended centre line are prohibited.
2.6 Instrument approach descriptions
2.6.1 General remarks

Between the IAF and interception of final approach navigation is based on vectors provided by ATC, except in case of an RNAV procedure.

2.6.2 RNAV procedure

(see also EHRD AD 2.22 paragraph 2.3.3)

Navigation in the initial and intermediate approach segment is primarily based on vectors provided by ATC. However, an RNAV approach to ILS RWY 24 is available for aircraft used by operators holding an RNAV1 or P-RNAV operations approval. The use of the RNAV approach procedure is at ATC discretion. The procedure is only assigned when the ILS or LOC are available.

The ATC instruction "Cleared for ROT 1R approach RWY 24" is a clearance to fly the published route and includes the clearance for the ILS or LOC instrument approach procedure to RWY 24.

3 LOW VISIBILITY PROCEDURES

During periods of low visibility the overall ATC capacity is reduced. To guarantee aircraft safety and optimal use of ATC capacity, Rotterdam Airport uses ATC low visibility procedures. When the visibility falls below 1500 m and the ceiling becomes equal to or below 300 ft, cautionary measures are taken. Four low visibility phases are recognised:

PhaseConditionsProcedure
ALowest RVR <= 1500 m
and/or ceiling <= 300 ft
No conditional clearances. Limited use of intersection take-offs.
BLowest RVR < 550 m
and/or ceiling < 200 ft
RWY 06/24 will only be used in one direction. Taxiing only allowed under the guidance of a marshaller or with a follow-me car. If no marshaller/car is available ATC may give permission to taxi if no other aircraft is moving or expected to be moving in the manoeuvring area.
CLowest RVR < 350 mRWY 06/24 will only be used in one direction. Taxiing only allowed under the guidance of a marshaller or with a follow-me car. If no marshaller/car is available ATC may give permission to taxi if no aircraft is moving or expected to be moving in the manoeuvring area.
DHighest RVR < 100 mThe airport is below operational limits for arriving and departing aircraft.

In case of communication failure over or after a position from where to join the circuit (this is past the reporting point PAPA) execute a circuit for the last received and acknowledged runway as short as practicable. Make a full stop landing and vacate as soon as possible. In case of go around execute a similar circuit (be aware of the fact that your flight path could interfere with the flight path of other aerodrome traffic).
4.5.3.2 Via HOTEL Arrival
  1. In case of communication failure before joining the circuit leave the CTR according to the HOTEL Departure and divert to an appropriate aerodrome.
  2. In case of communication failure over or after a position from where to join the circuit (this is past compulsory reporting point TANGO) act in accordance with paragraph 4.5.3.1 item b.
4.5.3.3 Via a different route to the field

EHRD AD 2.23 ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

1 CAUTIONS AND ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
  1. Pilots are urgently advised to maintain two-way radio communication within the Rotterdam TMAs.
  2. For details of the low flying areas and routes see ENR 5.2.
  3. VFR flights shall not be operated in the Schiphol TMAs, unless authorised by the appropriate ATS authority (see ENR 1.2 paragraph 3.2).
  4. Pilots are urgently requested not to execute VFR flights in the vicinity of the published instrument arrival and departure routes within the Rotterdam TMA, see EHRD AD 2.24.
  5. Caution during approach to RWY 06 with south-eastern (light, moderate or strong) wind, pilots should be aware and must be prepared for the possibility of building-induced turbulence, wind shear and wind gradient effects over the THR and TDZ of RWY 06. During these circumstances, while landing at RWY 06, pilots should be aware of suddenly increased turbulence.
  6. Pilots shall be aware that in the vicinity of the aerodrome ATC gives priority to:
    • aircraft in state of an emergency;
    • hospital and police aircraft with the status priority or scramble;
    • aircraft engaged in SAR operations.
  7. Bird-scare activities 24 hours a day available/active with the use of various equipment/means including flare shellcrackers, bird dispersal guns and amplified cries of distress.
  8. When lightning discharges are observed in the vicinity of the airport, the Duty Manager Operations (DMO) will announce that all ground handling and re-fuelling operations are prohibited until further notice. When it is safe to do so, the DMO will declare that ground handling and re-fuelling operations can be resumed. Handling stop will be indicated by special light/sound signals or by ATC.
2 DETERMINATION OF DATUM LINE FOR INTERSECTION TAKE-OFF

The datum line from which the reduced runway declared distances for take-off should be determined is defined by the intersection of the downwind edge of the specific taxiway with the runway edge as shown in the diagram below. The loss of runway length due to alignment of the aircraft prior to take-off should be taken into account by the operators for the calculation of the aircraft's take-off mass (ICAO Annex 6, Part 1, paragraph 5.2.8).
If an intersection take-off will take place from a taxiway with an intersection angle of 55°, and the taxiway centre line is followed until the runway centre line, there is a loss of line-up distance of APRX 100 m.
