8 Weather minima Special VFR VFR flights shall not take off or land at an aerodrome within a control zone, or enter the aerodrome traffic zone or traffic pattern:ceiling less than ft orground visibility less than 5 kmSpecial VFRSubject to ATC clearance, Special VFR flights may operate within a control zone:ground visibility not less than 1500m (helicopters 800m)ceiling not less than 600ftduring day onlyspeed 140kts IAS or lessclear of cloud, in sight with surfaceSeparationBetween IFR and special VFR and between special VFR flights.
10 Flight Plan Change IFR to VFR ATC Notify ATC specifically that the IFR flight is cancelled and communicate changes to be made on current flight plan.Shall not cancel IFR unless anticipated that flight will be continued for a reasonable period of time in uninterrupted visual meteorological conditions.Change shall only be acceptable only when message “CANCELLING MY IFR FLIGHT” initiated by pilot-in-command.ATCAdvise pilot if aware that IMC likely to be encountered along the route of flight.Acknowledgement “IFR FLIGHT CANCELLED AT ... (time)”;Inform other ATS units to whom the IFR FPL was addressed except those passed;VFR to IFRSubmit FPL to ATC, communicate changes, obtain a clearance prior proceeding IFR when in controlled airspace.
11 Simulated IFR subject to ATC approval… fully functioning dual controls…qualified pilot occupies a control seat to act as Safety Pilot for the person who is flying under SIM instrument conditions…the Safety Pilot shall have adequate vision forward and to each side of the aircraft…ATS provision as VFR flight...
12 Night VFR Night VFR Route Min Altitude: 3000ft AMSL (climb/descent in airport vicinity)Route Description: Salt Lake – Kophinou – Yermasoyia dam –Kouris dam – Avdimou – Ahelia vv.Weather MinimaVisibility 10k at both airports (cross country), or 8km (circuits).No clouds below the level which is 1000ft above level of flight.No warning of deterioration in the minima above.AuthorizationSubject to traffic and MET conditions, authorized by ATC to operate only in aerodome vicinity or on designated route, provided pilot, or instructor of a training flight, is a holder of a valid PPL license with night-flight rating qualification.
13 VFR Radio Failure Procedures Aircraft North/WestSet A7600. Last cleared altitude. Arrive over salt lake.Observe aerodrome traffic, RWY-in-use.Orbit/descend 500 ft over roundabout abeam the Control Tower.Look out for ATC light signals.Rock the wings as acknowledgement when observing signal.GREEN climb 1000ft, join circuit via RD RWY22 or LD RWY04.RED climb 1000ft, remain over salt lake. Repeat when traffic permits.
14 Aircraft East/South (sea) Set A7600. Last assigned altitude. Arrive on downwind abeam Control Tower.Observe aerodrome traffic, RWY in-use.Orbit/descend 500ft on downwind.Look for ATC light signals.Rock wings for acknowledgement when observing signal.GREEN maintain 500ft, join circuit via LD RWY22 or RD RWY04.RED remain abeam Control Tower, continue orbiting until a green signal observed.
15 Emergency Procedures Local Standby declared when an aircraft approaching the airport is known or is suspected to have developed some defect but the trouble is not such as would normally involve any serious difficulty in affecting a safe landing.Flight crew may be reluctant to use the standard prefixes to inform ATC initially. Controllers shall ask pilot if declaring an emergency. If the pilot declined to do so, the controller may, if he considers it appropriate, carry out the necessary actions as if the pilot had declared an emergency.Full Emergencydeclared when an aircraft approaching the airport is known or is suspected to be in such a trouble that there is an imminent danger for accident.
