LPPD AD 2.20  Local traffic regulations

1. Special transit requirements

1 hour advanced opening must be required until 1300 (1200) previous day. 2 hours extension after closing time, when justified, may be required until 1800 (1700) of the same day. Emergency reopening must be required 1 hour PN.

For request of Airport Slots see paragraph GEN 1.2.2

2. Backtrack

Aircraft with MTOW exceeding 80 tonnes must turnaround within the turn pads of RWY12/30.

3. Push-back, Engine Start-up and Taxi Procedures

Whenever an Aircraft APU is inoperative or not available one engine start-up is permitted on a nose-in stand, before starting the push-back manoeuvre. In this circumstance Ponta Delgada Control Tower must be advised and the start-up procedure will be assisted by Follow-me car.

LPPD AD 2.21  Noise abatement procedures

1. GENERAL

Landing and/or take-off is forbidden by law between 01:00 (00:00) and 07:00 (06:00), except in cases of force majeure. However, according to governmental deliberation, exception regime has been granted for Ponta Delgada (João Paulo II) Airport in which landing and/or take-off of aircraft engaged in commercial aviation are allowed in a limited number.

2. Restrictions

  1. Between 01:00 (00:00) and 07:00 (06:00) the number of air movements of commercial flights must not exceed 30 movements per week, with a maximum number of 6 daily movements;
  2. The clearance for air movements between 01:00 (00:00) and 07:00 (06:00) is likewise subjected to the noise levels of the aircraft in operation under the following requisites:
    1. Aircraft classified in levels 4, 8 and 16 shall not be scheduled for the period 03:00 (02:00) and 06:00 (05:00);
    2. Aircraft classified in levels 0, 0.5, 1 and 2 are not subject to any restrictions.
  3. For the extend of the aforementioned:
    1. Aircraft are classified regarding the noise emissions established according to ICAO in the following levels:
      less than 87 EPNdBLevel 0
      Level 0,587 to 89,9 EPNdB
      Level 190 to 92,9 EPNdB
      Level 293 to 95,9 EPNdB
      Level 496 to 98,9 EPNdB
      Level 899 to 101,9 EPNdB
      Level 16higher than 101,9 EPNdB
    2. The level of noise classification of an aircraft on landing or taking-off is attributed by the figures indicated in the manufacturer’s noise certificate, considering the reference points stated in the technical regulations applicable for the approach to landing, overflying for take-off and sideline procedures, at full thrust.
  4. Aircraft falling into the criteria set out in paragraph 3, authorised to land during the period between 01:00 (00:00) to 07:00 (06:00) are strictly forbidden to reverse thrust right after landing.

3. Force majeure:

  1. The restrictions mentioned in paragraph 2, NR 2 shall not be applicable in situations of force majeure namely:
    1. Aircraft operating humanitarian, medical emergency or evacuation missions;
    2. Aircraft under urgent situations, considering weather constraints, technical failure or flight safety reasons;
    3. Air movements previously and exceptionally approved by the Autoridade Nacional de Aviação Civil (ANAC), with recognised public interest, under previous clearance, vested with binding nature, of the Regional Secretary for the Environment and Sea, in order to authorize, temporarily, the performance of operations, that are generally, subjected to restrictions;
    4. Air movements that incurred on unpredicted schedule shift caused by an abnormal constraint in air traffic control;
    5. Air movements performed until 02:00 (01:00) on scheduled flights for periods until 01:00 (00:00), caused by delays non attributed to the airport management entity or operator;
    6. Air movements from and to Continental Portugal, from and to the airports of Autonomous Regions of Açores and Madeira, due to meteorological conditions;
    7. Landings during the period between 06:00 (05:00) and 07:00 (06:00), due to weather constraints, as long as the arrival time has been scheduled for after 07:00 (06:00);
  2. The operations performed under the aforementioned NR 1 of this paragraph shall not be considered for the application mentioned in the NR 1 of Paragraph 2

LPPD AD 2.22  Flight procedures

Ground rises significantly to the Northwest of the strip, specially on the RWY 30 extended centerline sector. Pilots must take special caution on the visual approach (right hand circuit) to RWY 12 and on missed approach and take-off from RWY 30

1. STANDARD INSTRUMENT DEPARTURES (SID) FROM PONTA DELGADA (JOAO PAULO II) AERODROME

1.1 RUNWAY 12

GENERAL REMARKS:

With prior ATC coordination and due to possible heavy turbulence conditions, traffic should overfly VMG area above FL060.

RADIO COMMUNICATIONS FAILURE:

In the event of RCF squawk A7600:
  1. Fly at/to the last assigned and acknowledged level or to 5500 FT if is higher than the last assigned level until passing 25 NM DME VMG DVOR/DME;
  2. Thereafter adjust level and speed in accordance with the filed flight plan;
  3. If being radar vectored or proceeding offset, when passing 25 NM DME VMG DVOR/DME, rejoin the current flight plan route and proceed in accordance with item 2 above;
  4. If cleared DCT to..., fly at/to the assigned and acknowledged level or to 5500 FT, whichever is higher, until passing 25 NM DME VMG DVOR/DME, maintain the current flight plan route and proceed in accordance with item 2 above.

5. RNP AR APCH

5.1 Authorization Required DetailsTo obtain from ANAC (Portuguese competent Authority) an “Authorization Required” to fly RNP AR APCH procedure in LPPD, for which a procedure-specific approval is required, Operator has to provide its flight crew members an additional ground training and FSTD training, as appropriate, to cope with the mitigations procedures that were described in its FOSA.For a correct sequence to obtain the “Authorization Required” from ANAC, the operator shall send an e-mail to ops@anac.pt with its request, and:

  1. Operator has to show evidence to ANAC (via its AOC- Appendix II “Opspecs” or, a LoA from its Competent Authority), that is Approved for “Generic” RNP AR APCH (with “RF” leg capability), before an application for an Authorization can be accepted.
  2. A FOSA (Flight Operational Safety Assessment) taking in account, at least, that some bank angle requirements as per ICAO Doc. 9905 may be higher than 20º, but are not higher than 25º, for extreme wind situations, which are manageable by eligible aircraft; and some small VSS penetrations not producing any EGPWS/TAWS advisories during validation flights.
  3. Evidence of operational procedures for normal (SOPs), abnormal and contingency situations and specific for LPPD RNP AR APCHs taking into account what point (ii) states.

5.2 Criteria Deviations

a) Bank AngleReferring to Document 9905 – AAN/471 Required Navigation Performance Authorization Required (RNP AR)Procedure Manual, the maximum bank angle for Approach is 20º and 15º for Missed Approach. All bank anglesabove these values are listed below:
