22 22 The Rules Class D – Access by radio only; VMC only Class E – VMC only (radio not needed) Airways – Keep Out except during weekend opening of P600 or with clearance under LOA Advisory Routes – VMC Highly Recommended (It is wise to listen (or contact) ATC on ) Parachute Zones – Keep Out unless inactive or cleared by radio ( ) ATZs – 2000ft (AGL), 2 or 2.5Nm radius – Keep Out (or use RT) Be wary when on extended centrelines MATZ – Keep a good lookout. Be particularly wary when on extended centrelines Class C (Everything above FL195) – Keep Out except with clearance under LOA (RT or telephone) Danger Areas – Keep Out (or check the rules and hours) Restricted Areas – Keep Out (or check the rules and hours) Temporary Airspace - Read the NOTAMs before flying

23 23 Where are the Rules? AIP (en route section) ½ mil chart – keep the legend and notes AIP (Aerodrome Section) for airfield frequencies Letters of Agreement are on the BGA Web Site

25 25 Letters of Agreement P600 Weekend Agreement

26 26

27 27 P600 Weekend Agreement Weekends ONLY, VMC only Not available unless we ask for it (B226 is active at weekends REGARDLESS) Only covers airway as far as Scone VOR There is a 2Nm exclusion zone at Strathallan Includes TMA Class D north of 56deg 14’ N up to line from west of Stirling to Calendar Effective up to FL190 See board outside office, or get confirmation of status from Portmoak base via radio (on 130.1MHz)

28 28 Letters of Agreement P600 Weekend Agreement New Wavebox Agreement

29 29

30 30

31 31 Wavebox Agreement Weekends ONLY (except Aboyne Box), VMC only. Moving map required. Lower Boxes extend from FL195 to FL240 Portmoak Wavebox can only be activated in conjunction with P600 delegation When both are active, the part of the P600 and TMA delegated area lying directly below the Portmoak Wave Box extends to FL195 Request one of the following: –Open P600 for gliding up to FL190 –Open P600 for gliding together with the Portmoak wave area –Open P600 for gliding with the option to open the Portmoak wave area by RT call on 124.5MHz (or by a second phone call) Additionally/alternatively, we may activate Scottish lower areas (north or south) Nominally 2 hours advance notice required for wave boxes Must monitor 130.1MHz whilst in the lower wave boxes Only the Lower areas are available without continuous RT (and licence) For upper boxes (above FL240), study the LOA yourself

32 32 Letters of Agreement P600 Weekend Agreement New Wavebox Agreement Airway Crossing Agreement

33 33

34 34 Airway Crossing Agreement Very complex Now very rarely used since the increase of base levels For those who want to use it, note that the corridors have been re-defined since March 15 th and only extend to FL190 Pilot to sign annually

35 35 Letters of Agreement P600 Weekend Agreement New Wavebox Agreement Airway Crossing Agreement Edinburgh Agreement

36 36

37 37 Edinburgh Agreement A very unsatisfactory token effort to allow cross Forth thermal flights RT essential Advance booking essential Still a marginal operating height band Worthy of study by the thermal pundits only

38 38 Summary of Recent Changes Ceiling of Open FIR (Class G) reduced from FL245 to FL195 – this is diamond height territory P600/B226 base levels raised and base level change points moved slightly –Update your pda files P600 crossing corridors rationalised to match the airway base level changes – a simplification –Update your pda files Much of Edinburgh class E airspace upgraded to class D – now only a very narrow non RT corridor overhead Cumbernauld Kippen/Thornhill now a microlite site without parachuting Kingsmuir (Fife) is now a parachute site
