LPGR AD 2.20  Local aerodrome regulations

1. Limitations on use of aerodrome

The Aerodrome is an UNCONTROLLED Aerodrome.

AD available for VMC operations only.

Operators should pay attention for the existence of former horizontal markings (paintings).

LPGR AD 2.21  Noise abatement procedures

NIL

LPGR AD 2.22  Flight procedures

1. General

All authorizations must be obtained through LAJES Approach. (see LPLA AD-2.18)

Due to High Terrain, Flights are not allowed south of Runway 09/27.

All ACFT (Including ULM) Operating at ATZ are subject to the following conditions:

  • Submission of a Flight Plan
  • Transponder Mode C or S equipped
  • Two Way radio communications equipped

Helicopters may operate in Graciosa ATZ in less than 1500M but not less than 800M flight visibility, if manoeuvred at a speed that will give adequate opportunity to observe other traffic or any obstacles in time to avoid collision. Flight visibility lower than 800M for short periods during daylight, when in sight of land, are permitted for special cases, such as medical flights, search and rescue operations and fire-fighting.
Low level over water flights out of sight of land are also permitted if conducted under VFR when the cloud ceiling is greater than 600FT by day and 1200FT by night.

The airspace is uncontrolled. However, when the meteorological conditions of the aerodrome are below VMC minima any aircraft, with suitable equipment, may execute, pending on traffic conditions, an approach procedure based on radio navigation aid, applying the published minima in the Instrument Approach Chart of the aerodrome.

2. Arrivals

  1. Traffic Pattern on the North Side of Runway 09/27.

3. Departures

  1. Take-off RWY 09 - Maintain runway heading until passing 1000FT, using QNH, then turn right. Keep coast line to your right side and maintain VMC until receive ATC clearance by Lajes Approach.
  2. Take-off RWY 27 - Maintain runway heading until passing 1000FT, using QNH, then turn right. Keep coast line to your right side and maintain VMC until receive ATC clearance by Lajes Approach.
