LPMA AD 2.20  Local aerodrome regulations

1. Limitations on use of aerodrome

Restricted to aircraft capable of maintaining two way communications with Madeira TWR.

The peculiar operation of MADEIRA AD and operating limitations are stated in paragraph 2 below.

For request of Airport Slots see paragraph GEN 1.2.2, Item 1.2.2.1

2. Special procedures and operating limitations

2.1 Operating at Madeira Aerodrome

Introduction

  1. The Airport is located on a plateau on the east coast of Madeira Island. Except for the seaside, ground raises rapidly very closed to it. This fact generates, very often, wind variation and turbulence. Also severe low altitude wind shear conditions and / or micro burst are likely to be encountered.
  2. Straight-in approaches not authorized from Funchal VOR to Runway 23.

Applicability

  1. The items described below in “Crew requirements”, “Minimum training requirements”, “Line training” and “Aircraft Type change”, are mandatory to schedule and non-scheduled revenue flights involving aircraft with more than 10 passengers of capacity.
  2. Pilots are informed that, any time, they may be required to show evidence to Madeira Airport Authorities of compliance with referred items.

Crew requirements

  1. Initial experience To operate at Madeira Airport, the Pilot-in-command must have a minimum of 200 flying hours as Captain on the concerned type of aircraft, before completing the initial training.
  2. Recent experience To operate at Madeira Airport, the Pilot-in-command must have performed there, on the last six months:
    • one landing and take-off or,
    • a flight simulator training comprising a landing and take-off on each runway, on a simulated adverse weather condition or,
    • a line training flight to Madeira Airport, comprising a landing and take-off, assisted by a qualified instructor occupying the right-hand seat.
  3. The Pilot-in-Command is authorized to operate to Madeira Airport (LPMA) for a period of six months starting from the date of issue.

Minimum training requirements

In order to operate at Madeira Airport, the operator must establish and accomplish beforehand a training program concerning the type of aircraft to be used. This training, if performed on local flights, must include at least, landings and take-off by day and night in both directions, emphasising:

  1. the TKOF flight path to runway 23,
  2. the TKOF flight path to runway 05,
  3. the balked landing (go-around initiated in landing configuration from very low height) on both directions,
  4. the let down and approach to both runways,
  5. the operation effect on runway slope and dimensions and associated safety margins.

If the flight is to be performed in a flight simulator, the following procedures must be included in the training program, for each runway:

  1. take-off with engine failure after V1,
  2. relight after engine failure,
  3. VOR approach,
  4. balked landing and go-around,
  5. visual approach,
  6. landing,
  7. weather conditions: wind - the maximums as indicated in paragraph 2.3. Severe turbulence, Windshear and up and down drafts, must be included in the different approaches,
  8. one landing at night must be executed for each runway.

Line training

No line training is required if the flight simulator used is level D. If level C flight simulator is used, line training must be performed with one landing and take-off in Madeira Airport, with an instructor occupying the right-hand seat

Aircraft type change

A Captain qualified in Madeira Airport in one type of aircraft, changing to another type, must do the flight simulator training program mentioned in paragraph “Minimum training requirements” or, instead, will land and take-off in both runways without passengers on board and no line training will be required on both cases.

Training program

The training program referred in paragraph “Minimum training requirements” above will have to be approved by ANAC (Autoridade Nacional da Aviação Civil).

Deviations or unconformities

Any deviations or unconformities stated from requirements stated in the previous paragraphs will be dealt in a case by case basis.

2.2 Responsibility

Compliance with operating limitations is mandatory. Any deviation, landing or take off without clearance must be reported to ANAC by Tower, with the exception of the situations described in bullet “d” of Wind out of limits procedures.

2.3 Operating procedures and limitations

Wind / Turbulence

Wind Information

  1. Control Tower will provide two minutes mean wind values at Rosário and touchdown zone simultaneously with landing clearance or missed approach / go around instructions when landing clearance cannot be issued due to winds exceeding airport published landing limits.
  2. Further wind information after a landing clearance has been issued will be provided at Pilot’s request or upon occurrence of variations from the last 2 minutes mean wind direction of 60º or more, or mean wind speed of 3 knots or more.
  3. Instantaneous wind read outs will be provided at pilot’s request.

Wind Limitations

  1. When landing

1. Maximum of two minutes mean Wind Speed Values indicated by the Touchdown anemometer:

2. Maximum of two minutes mean Wind Speed Values,including Gust indicated by the MID or ROSÁRIO Anemometers

b. When Taking-off

NOTE: The limitations above do not supersede any Operators or Aircraft Operations Manual (AOM) limitations if these are more restrictive

Turbulence

NOTE: Pilots are strongly requested to report to the Control Tower as soon as possible any turbulence and/or windshear that            may affect operational conditions.

Authorization Required Details

To obtain from ANAC (Portuguese competent Authority) an "Authorization Required" to fly RNP AR APCH procedure in LPMA, for which a procedure-specific approval is required, Operator has to provide it's flight crew members an additional ground training and FSTD training, as appropriate, to cope with the mitigations procedures that were described in it's FOSA. The Operator should ensure that the additional training programmes, inserted in Operator's Manual (normally Part-D), for such procedures, include as at least all of the following:
  • what Regulation (EU) n° 965/2012 in AMC 1 SPA.PBN.100 (b) alínea c)(2) from (vi) till (xii), describes as necessary;
  • the crew training recommendations and mitigations stated in the procedure flight operational safety assessment (FOSA); and
  • specific training and operational provision published in this AIP, which is for Madeira, at least, special emphasis on a Missed Approach for RWY 05 in which "TOGA to LNAV" (or similar function) fails, in a "RF" leg;
  • another approach with Missed Approach in One Engine Inoperative and a "loss of GNSS navigation".
  • At least, taking in account what above is stated, 2 approaches for RWY 05 and 2 Approaches for RWY 23 in FFS should be trained. One of these, for RWY 05, should be for a full stop landing, with left limiting crosswind.
  • Training and Checking may be combined and conducted by the same person, TRE (Type Rating Examiner), CRE (Class Rating Examiner) or SFE (Synthetic Flight Examiner) during LPCs (License Proficiency Check), OPCs Operator Proficiency Check) or specials FFS (Full Flight Simulator) sessions for this purposes.
In the correct sequence to obtain the Authorization, the operator shall e-mail to ops@anac.pt its intentions, and:(i) Operator has to prove to ANAC, via its AOC Appendix II "Opspecs", or Letter of Authorization, from its Competent Authority that is Approved for "Generic" RNP AR APCH (with "RF" leg capability), before an application for an Authorization may be accepted.(ii) A FOSA taking in account, at least, that for RWY 05, FROP is shorter than recommended, due terrain morphology in final approach leg / Decision point (DA/H) is in "RF" leg / RWY 23 Missed Approach Sector bank angle, limited by Speed Restriction.(iii) Evidence of "Training and Checking" program as above stated.(iv) Evidence of operational procedures for normal, abnormal and contingency situations and specific for LPMA RNP AR APCHs taking in account what (ii) states.
Note:
When "Authorization Required" is obtained from ANAC, a Letter of Authorization will be sent to "operator" with all conditions stated. One of the conditions is a "Temporary Initial Limitation" for specific operational experience gaining:
(i) Each approved pilot Commander for this operation will operate the first RNP AR APCH in VMC conditions.
(ii) The 2nd and 3rd approach will be limited with CMV (Converted Meteorological Visibility) for RNP 0.3 (for any of the runways and their "approach category" A, B, C or D) plus 500M.
(iii) 4th approach and further, according to the approval that all of operator's aircraft / pilot are approved by its competent authority (i.e. RNP 0.1 minima).

RWY Backtrack Operations

RWY backtrack operations forbidden to aircraft with MTOW above 30 TONS. These operations must be done only on turning bays.
Exception made to Medical Evacuation, SAR and Emergency Flights.

3. VISUAL APPROACH PROCEDURES

QFE values are related to the elevation of each threshold.

To Runway 05

NOTE: Due to high terrain, caution should be exercised to avoid flying left of approach lights path to RWY 05

To Runway 23

In order to never cross to the right (north) of radial 235 from DVOR/DME FUN:

  1. Pico do Facho: altitude 1129 FT, distance 1023 M abeam a point 1NM from Threshold;
  2. Cliff altitude 558 FT, distance 608 M abeam the same point.

4. Wind out of limits procedures

  1. A landing clearance will not be issued and missed approach / go around instructions will be provided immediately by ATC if winds exceed published landing limits when:
    1. An approaching aircraft to runway 05 is reaching the following points:
      • MAPt, when established on approach DVOR RWY05 and instrument approach DVOR/DME CIRCLING RWY 05;
      • MA566, when established on RNP RWY05 and instrument approach RNP RWY 05 – a;
      • MA508, when established on instrument approach RNP Y RWY 05 AR;
      • MA522, when established on instrument approach RNP Z RWY 05 AR.
    2. An approaching aircraft to runway 23 is reaching the following points:
      • MAPt, when established on approach DVOR RWY 23 and instrument approach DVOR/DME CIRCLING RWY 23;
      • MA562 when established on RNP RWY 23 and instrument approaches RNP RWY 23 – b;
      • MA408 when established on instrument approach RNP RWY 23 AR.
  2. If a pilot insists on landing even though clearance has not been issued and he/she has been informed of the current wind limitations on the use of aerodrome, ATC will ensure that runway is clear and inform him/her that landing without clearance will be his/her own responsibility.
  3. Landing at pilot’s responsibility does not relieve him/her from compliance with published wind operating limitations and of any responsibility whatsoever in connection with a violation of applicable rules and regulations.
  4. In case winds exceed published landing limits after an aircraft has been cleared to land, TWR will not cancel landing clearance to avoid ATC–induced circumstances and it will be pilot’s responsibility to evaluate whether flight conditions are suitable to complete the approach or flight safety dictates the initiation of a missed approach / go around procedure.
  5. If a pilot insists on taking off even though he/she has been informed of the current wind limitations on the use of aerodrome for departure, ATC will not issue take off clearance, will ensure that runway is clear and inform him/her that taking off without clearance will be his/her own responsibility.

5. Landing procedures

All landings are to be made in visual conditions (see appropriate chart)

  1. Approach Runway 05 must be made in a minimum visibility of 5000 meters (see AD 2.24.12-1)
  2. Approach Runway 23 must be made in a minimum visibility of 7000 meters (see AD 2.24.12-3)
  3. RNP AR - All landings are to be accomplished while maintaining visual references to the runway, either after passing DA or MDA in instrument approaches or in terminating visual approaches.

RNP AR RWY 05/23 - Additional Information

Criteria deviations from ICAO Referring to Required Navigation Performance Authorization Required (RNP AR) Procedure Design Manual:
  • the minimum lAS for Cat D is 165kt;
  • for Missed Approach less than RNP 1 value, FROP should be at 50 seconds from DA;
  • the maximum bank angle for Approach is 20° and 15° for Missed Approach.
All deviations from the above criteria are listed below and shall be addressed in the FOSA:
RNP AR RWY 05 FROP- Located at 0.6 NM from THR05, so by definition, less than 50s from DA. - For all aircraft categories and RNP AR values in final segment, DA is reached before FROP (MA502 - inside the RF turn). Final Approach Speed
