State Altimeter setting procedures in Auckland oceanic FIR
- 1013.2 except that:
- Zone QNH within Rarotonga, Samoa, Norfolk Island.
- If aerodrome is outside a Zone, use local QNH when below 3000ft withing 10nm of landmass aerodrome is on.
State QNH procedures when operating inside NZ FIR
1013.2 above FL150
Zone or local below 13,000
Change on way up through 13,000 and down through FL150
If operating in transition zone, use as advised by ATC
State Procedure for altimeter setting before takeoff when QNH is not available
Set Aerodrome elevation and then get QNH from ATS before entering IMC
State the altitude / flight levels when cruising IFR withing the Auckland Oceanic FIR, and NZ domestic FIR
Oceanic - odd people fly east to the ocean
Domestic - ONES is on you.
degrees include to the left, not to the right.
VFR + 500ft
What is MFA and what is it the higher of
Min Flight Altitude
- Highest of
- i) Route Min Safe Alt MSA
- ii) Min Reception Alt (VOR) MRA
- iii) Min En-route Alt (NBD) MEA
- iiii) Dange or volcanic upper limit
What is the altitude accuracy limit for transponders
describe the Vertical limits and purpose of CTRs
- Must be as small as practical consistent with the need to protect flight path of IFR a/c
- Encompass airspace not in CTA containing IFR paths arrival and dep
- Be at least 5nm from center of aerodrome in direction or IFR procedures
- Must take into account category of a/c likely to use procedures
- Prominent features should be used to define lateral limits if possible
- Upper limit above 3000ft must coincide with a VFR cruising level
Describe CTA vertical limits and purpose
Upper limit must not exceed FL660
- Lower limit must be
- i) at least 500ft below flight path of IFR a/c needing ATS service
- ii)The highest practical altitude
- iii) not less than 700ft above surface
- When lower limit is above 3000ft, coincide with VFR cruising level
If airspace below is another CTA, then they must join in Alt
How far offshore can restricted and Military ops areas be, and who needs permission.
How long before activation must a notam com out for these areas
Do you need permission for a Danger Area
24hours prior a notam must come out unless it's an emergency.
restricted out to 12nm offshore. - Always need permission
Military anywhere, but out to 12nm all need permission, any further only NZ a/c need permission
Permission not needed for a Danger area
State restrictions of Volcanic hazard zones
- i) night
- ii) IMC
- iii) In VMC during day unless PIC deems it safe having read all relevant met data
Where is MBZ and volcanic detail?
Start of M
RNP Procedures are Where?
Describe aerodrome lighting intensity classifications
Should be adequate for minimum conditions of viz, and be compatible with the nearest section of the approach lighting system
Intensity should the controlled so so that all portions of the approach lighting is at compatible intensities to aid pilot vision
Describe runway Edge Lighting (REDL)
White lights down each side of runway
Shows red when displaced threshold from approach end
Can be yellow for last 600m of far end for takeoff
Runway threshold and Wing Bar lights. (RTHL)
Green lights going across the threshold stretching to outside the edge lighting
Runway end Lighting (RENL)
At the far end of a runway when taking off or landing , like the edge lighting but the are RED
Runway centre line lights
- Needed for Cat II and III
- Cat I with fast a/c
- Operating RVR 400m or higher runway
- Coloured white till 900m from end (or from halfway if less than 1800m total)
- white/Red till 300m from end
- Red for last 300m
Runway Touchdown Zone Lights
- From threshold to 900m in or the mid point of the runway
- White coloured, Showing sets of 3 light either side
Runway end Identifier Lights (REIL)
Flashing white lights running either side of centre line and finishing about 60m from the threshold
