Close window

RCF in flight - procedure for fixed-wing aircraft? Radar identification procedure?

- squawk 7700
- try to re-establish radio communication and listen to emergency frequencies
- maintain VMC as long as possible (if unable to comply with radar identification procedure)

triangle right (1min, 120°) -> transmitter failure
triangle left ( 1min, 120°) -> transmitter and receiver failure

Close window

RCF in flight - procedure for helicopters?

- in VMC and ground in sight, land at next suitable landing site

- avoid any airfield traffic circuit areas or CTRs

- report problems and intentions to ATC by phone

- return acft to home base

Close window

Gear problems - procedure for helicopters?

if maintenance crew not advised, hover over maintenance area, wait for ground crew

puma aim for belly landing, better than one gear side out

Close window

When does a COMLOSS exist? What needs to be done? How does a report look like? 

after 3 unsuccessful attempts to contact an acft by ATCO on assigned frequency or 121.5

inform SPVR, SPVR forwards to ADDC (CAD)

1. Callsign
2. position
3. compliance with flight plan profile
4. other relevant information, if available

Close window

Close window

IFR arrival vs. VFR departure opposite - general rule?

- apply 1'000 ft vertical separation until other means of separation established

- PAPA approaches or 1'000 ft can not be assured: departure has to begin take-off roll before arrival reaches 15 NM

- give traffic information to departing acft including distance of arriving acft

- instruct departing acft to vacate axis as soon as possible

Close window

IFR prop, helicopter -> 5 NM

IFR PAPA -> 15 NM
