2.2.1.5   Ponte de Sor Transponder and Radio Mandatory Zone (TRMZ)

The implementation of an ATZ in Ponte de Sor AD (LPSO) led to the establishment of an area designated as “Ponte de Sor Transponder and Radio Mandatory Zone”, with the airspace classification “G”, aiming to provide protection to aircraft in the critical stages of visual and instruments approaches inbound Ponte de Sor Aerodrome (LPSO).

Ponte de Sor TRMZ activation will be limited to Ponte de Sor AFIS hours of operation including PPR.

When Ponte de Sor (LPSO) is closed, FIS will be provided by Lisboa ACC inside ATZ.

2.2.2   CONTINGENCY PLANNING IN LISBOA ACC (CONFLICT FREE ALLOCATION SCHEME)

2.2.2.1  GENERAL

The Portuguese Air Traffic Services Contingency Planning is based on strict operating criteria. Its method, structure and applicability are universal and based on the consequences of technical or catastrophic failures that may occur in the Air Navigation System. It contains material dealing with planning for TMA and En-Route contingencies.

Whenever a contingency occurs, CFMU and Madrid, Sevilla, Casablanca ACC and Santa Maria OAC will be informed accordingly.

The Conflict Free FL Allocation Scheme route structure will apply to all Scenarios.

2.2.2.2  TYPES OF CONTINGENCY

According to ATS resources remaining after a contingency situation has occurred, three scenarios have been identified:

Scenario 1: Radar failure and all frequencies normal (Degraded Mode Of Operations).

Scenario 2: Radar failure, last resort frequency equipment in use and LPMAD without frequency (Degraded Mode of Operations).

Scenario 3: Radar and frequencies failure. (Emergency Mode of Operations) Lisbon, Porto, Faro and Madeira Towers maintain radar and frequencies. With this scenario, ATS services (Information and Alert Services only) will be provided from Control Towers.

2.2.2.2.1  Scenarios of Contingency and Capacities:
2.2.2.2.1.1  Scenario 1:

Radar failure and all frequencies normal:

SectorsAircraft / HourFrequency
North Sector19132.305 MHz
North/Centre Sector14132.305 MHz
Centre Sector19136.030 MHz
South/Centre Sector13125.550 MHz
South Sector19125.550 MHz
DEMOS Sector16128.900 MHz
West Sector13128.900 MHz
VERAM Sector16131.325 MHz
Madeira Sector9132.255 MHz
East Sector13125.550 MHz
Lisboa TMA12125.130 MHz

2.2.2.2.1.2  Scenario 2(1):

Radar failure, last resort frequency equipment in use and Madeira Sector without frequency:

SectorsAircraft / HourFrequency
North Sector13132.305 MHz
North/Centre Sector10132.305 MHz
Centre Sector13136.030 MHz
South/Centre Sector9125.550 MHz
South Sector13125.550 MHz
DEMOS Sector11128.900 MHz
West Sector9128.900 MHz
VERAM Sector11131.325 MHz
Madeira Sector6132.255 MHz
East Sector9125.550 MHz
Lisboa TMA8125.130 MHz

NOTE: (1) Due to range constraints of the last resort located at Lisbon ACC (Madeira Sector), the ATS (Information and Alert Services only) will be provided by Madeira Tower.

2.2.2.2.1.3  Scenario 3 (1):

Radar and frequencies failure (Catastrophic failure).

Lisbon, Porto, Faro and Madeira Towers maintain radar and frequencies.

With this scenario, ATS services will be provided from Control Towers.

SectorsAircraft / HourATC UnitFrequency
North/Upper SectorN / DPorto APP132.305 MHz -127.255 MHz
Lisboa TMA/West SectorN / DLisboa TWR125.130 MHz - 128.900 MHz
Centre/South SectorN / DFaro APP136.030 MHz - 125.550 MHz
Madeira SectorN / DMadeira APP132.255 MHz

Note: (1) To be implemented as soon as the frequencies had been allocated to the Towers.

Horta Transponder and Radio Mandatory Zone

The implementation of ATZ's in Pico and S. Jorge led to the establishment of an area designated as “Horta Transponder and Radio Mandatory Zone”, with the airspace classification “G”, aiming to provide protection to aircraft in the critical stages of visual and instruments approaches inbound the aerodromes of, Pico (LPPI) and S. Jorge (LPSJ).

Horta Transponder and Radio Mandatory Zone activation will be limited to Horta TWR hours of operation including PPR.

When Pico (LPPI) and S. Jorge (LPSJ) ATZs are closed, FIS will be provided by Horta TWR inside both ATZs.

  1. Horta Transponder and Radio Mandatory Zone lateral limits:

  6. Remarks:
    1. All aircraft flying VFR or IFR in Class G airspace inbound Horta Transponder and Radio Mandatory Zone, shall contact Horta APP on 120.600MHz before entering the lateral limits of this Area and maintain continuous air-ground voice communication watch, to facilitate the provision of flight information, instructions and ATC clearances, (e.g: approach procedures) if required;
    2. All aircraft before entering Horta Transponder and Radio Mandatory Zone shall submit a flight plan to an air traffic services reporting office or, during flight, shall transmit to the appropriate air traffic services unit.
    3. All aircraft flying in Horta Transponder and Radio Mandatory Zone shall carry and operate SSR transponders capable of operating on Mode C or on Mode S, unless in compliance with alternative provisions prescribed for that particular airspace by the air navigation service provider.
