Flight Planning. RNAV SIDS must be used where the aircraft is RNAV capable.
Departure Clearences (DCL). Please ask for departure clearence 10 minutes before startup.
Pushback and Startup. Clearence for pushback and startup must be optained by ATC. When requesting pushback the aircraft should be in an Aircraft Ready State (Italian eAIP ADPPZ1-1) which means:
Aircraft doors and holds are closed
Aircraft Safe Area is clear from all objects, veichles and personnel
Aircraft de-icing has been performed (if needed)
Aircraft is ready for startup and taxi/powerback/pushback
Pushback tractor is connected (in case of a nose-in stand)
Taxiways. When cleared to taxi to holding points "A", "B" and "C", aircraft should enter runway 04L/22R and wait on the runway before the stopbars. As previously stated, runway 04L/22R is used as taxiway "T" when runway 04R/22L is active. In case of different scenaries and inability to follow ATC instructions, pilots may ask or will be provided with progressive taxi instructions, in which ATC will guide the pilot giving simple commands such as "proceed straight ahead" or "turn left/right".
Special operational practice for minimum RWY occupancy. In order to guarantee traffic requ irements, pilots are required to
vacate the active runway as quickly as possible, in compliance with safety. Extended occupancy of the runway in use may result in the
interruption of the subsequent approach. Unless instructed by ATC:
As far as possible, pre-flight checks should be completed before line-up; any other check following line-up shall be carried out as quickly as possible;
Departing aircraft shall comply with ATC instructions with no delay;
Take off run shall start immediately after take-off clearance.
Aircraft procedures in reduced visibility conditions (AWO).
1) Criteria for initiation of LVP
Low Visibility Procedures (LVP) will be in force when:
RVR is equal or less than 550m; and/or
cloud base height is below 200ft according to local meteorological report; and/or the deterioration of weather conditions recommends so.
Pilots will be informed by ATIS or ATC when LVP are in force.
In the presence of meteorological or operational
conditions, even with clouds and/or RVR values above
the disciplined values, Venezia TWR may activate the
a pilot report indicates a bad weather condition;
there is an explicit pilot request to activate LVP or to perform a CAT II/III approach with marginal values of RVR/cloud base (except the approaches required for training).
As reported in the points above, in order to not penalize the traffic sequence, the activation of the LVP may also take place on pilot request for the specific flight.
The message "LVP in Progress" will be communicated by ATC on frequency to the concerned flight only.
2) Runway operations
RWY 04R is approved for CAT II, CAT III A/B approach and LVTO operations.
3) Aerodrome operating minima: RVR not less than 75 m
4) CAT II/III operations for training
Practice CAT II / III approaches and landings with RVR/cloud base values higher than those for LVP activation will be subject to traffic conditions in place or foreseen. In order to guarantee ILS signal protection pilots shall request in advance to ATC the permission containing also the explicit indication that the request has training purposes.
5) Ground movement
In case of poor visibility conditions a reduced airport capacity
can be expected due to restrictions applied on ground
Whenever LVP are in force the paths described in the LVP CHARTS must be followed
In case of aborted take-off paths prescribed for arriving aircraft must be followed
In reduced visibility conditions all pilots shall report to Venezia TWR: reaching RHP/IHP, unless otherwise instructed by TWR; when ILS sensitive area has been vacated as identified by the end of the green/yellow colour coded TWY centerline lights; reaching the stand.
