RFE Geneva

10:00z – 17:00z / 22.04.2017

Briefing for Pilots

Introduction

Briefing for Pilots
The aim of this pilot briefing for the RFE is to inform pilots about local procedures and to
prepare them for a lot of traffic. To be able to achieve a good traffic flow, we need to count on
your full cooperation. If you have any questions about this briefing, don’t hesitate to ask on the
forum (ch.forum.ivao.aero) or send a mail to ch-ec@ivao.aero.

General Rules
Radio Communication





When changing to another frequency, do at least wait for 5 seconds to be sure you
don’t interrupt any readback.
Do not all speak at one time. If this happens, the controller will indicate which station
shall communicate first.
Keep your communications as clear and as short as possible.
Controllers may tell you at any time to stand-by or monitor a frequency, this means
you do only change to the next frequency, but don’t say anything until the controller
calls you !

Pilots





Comply with ATC instructions, unless the safety of your aircraft is compromised.
Execute ATC instructions as soon as possible after reading it back.
Listen well to transmissions from controllers, any “Please repeat” will last in a delay of
instructions.
Be sure to know your aircraft and able to fly it!

Times

02.2017

Briefing for Pilots
The times indicated in the booking system are the target off-block times (TOBT). This means,
you should request push back at the time indicated on your booking (+/- 5 minutes) !
Please note that all times are Zulu times !

Connecting to the network
It is essential that you connect yourself at least 20 minutes prior to your TOBT at your
assigned gate. Do NOT contact Ground for clearance earlier then 10 minutes prior to
your TOBT, you will be advised to wait and call back earliest 10 prior to your TOBT. If
you are not able to be ready 5 minutes after your TOBT for push back and startup, then
you are delayed. You need to report this and you will be assigned to a new slot time!

Clearance
At Geneva, clearances are delivered by the Ground controller. There is no special
Delivery frequency; this means you need to contact 121.675 MHz to obtain your
clearance.
On initial contact with Ground, please give the following details:





Callsign
Aircraft
Stand/Gate
ATIS Information

Example:
Pilot – Geneva Ground Bonjour, Swiss 69 Kilo Charlie, Airbus A320 at Gate A5 with
information I, ready to copy clearance to Zurich
ATC – Swiss 69 Kilo Charlie, Geneva Ground Bonjour, Info I correct, runway 23 to Zurich,
KONIL4 Juliett departure, squawk 4201

Once you’ve readback your clearance, and the controller tells “readback correct”, stay on
Ground, set your squawk, and ask for pushback/start-up only if you are ready and within
your TOBT +/- 5 Minutes (Pushback/start-up request must include the stand/gate number).

Pushback / Start-up
Once you’ve requested pushback or start-up, the Ground controller will hand you over to Apron
on 121.850 MHz and you will receive the clearance to do so from the Apron controller. He is
responsible for all ground movements on the southern part of the airfield. Please don’t forget
to face into the right direction (indicated by controller on pushback clearance).

Briefing for Pilots
If you are located in the northern part of the airfield, you will have to stay with Ground (where
you got your clearance) for pushback, start-up and taxi.

Taxi
Be sure to have the ground charts with you in order to taxi along the correct taxiways. There
is a high risk of collision/mess if a wrong taxiway is used. Do only request taxi when fully
ready to do so. Special taxiways at Geneva are the “LINK” taxiways; please listen carefully to
the controller when receiving taxi clearance. Below you can see these different LINKS in
yellow:

Line-up and Take-off
For line-up and take-off clearance, contact Tower on 118.700 MHz. Do only contact Tower
when advised to do so by Apron/Ground and do not line-up or take-off without any
clearance.
When runway 23 is in service, Apron may ask you to contact Tower way before reaching the
holding point (approx. after passing cargo apron).

Briefing for Pilots
If your performance allows, you may request intersection B for take-off (2600m remaining
runway from B). Keep in mind that ATC does first need to approve this request.
When runway 05 is in service, Apron will hand you over to Tower only when reaching the
holding point.
If your performance allows (usually only light or turboprop), you may request intersection
E for take-off (2750m remaining runway from E). Keep in mind that ATC does first need to
approve this request.

Departure
After take-off, Tower controller will hand you over to Departure Radar on 119.525 MHz. After
departure, do NOT climb above the initial climb clearance! The standard initial climb
clearance is FL090, if you’re not cleared to climb further by Departure, stay at FL090
and follow your SID.
Your initial contact with Departure should only contain your callsign and the passing
altitude/level.

Swiss Radar
When leaving the sector of departure, you will be sent to the lower Swiss Radar on 124.225
Mhz, later then onto high sector Swiss on 134.850 Mhz.

Arriving traffic
First contact with Geneva
On initial contact with Geneva Arrival on 136.250 MHz, you should already be cleared for a
STAR. If not, enter the hold over your last fix at clearance limit as published on the charts
and let the controller know about it.
The first call to Arrival should state the following details:






Callsign
Current level
Cleared level from last ATC position
Aircraft
ATIS Information

The Arrival controller will then guide you to the active runway using STAR or Vectors. You may
need to fly direct to any waypoint. If you get a shortcut, double check your descend path! Be
prepared for speed restrictions!

Briefing for Pilots

Open STAR
Despite we are all aware of what a STAR is (i.e. the instrumental, or visual in rare cases,
arrival route that connects the flight route to the Initial Approach Segment), I would like to
refresh the pilot participating to the RFE event in few days that the STARs in Geneva are
OPEN RNAV STAR.
An Open RNAV STAR is an instrument arrival procedure in which the last fix is not
connected to the IAF (Initial Approach Fix). The last fix of the Open STAR is associated with
a defined track to follow. As specified in the example below on point 1 from current Geneva
chart, “No turn onto base unless cleared by ATC”. This means that once you reached GG514
or GG512 (in this case runway 23 is in use) if no ATC clearance to turn right or left has been
received, the pilot should continue on heading 045 keeping the same altitude and the same
speed restriction (i.e. 220kt in this case).
Be careful, FMC connects the STAR to the IAF automatically, so it is the pilot that should
keep an eye on the situation and act accordingly to ATC requests (or non-requests). From
our point of view, we will try to always assign vectors to avoid any misleading situation, but
this cannot guaranteed all the time.

Contacting Final

Briefing for Pilots
As soon as you are approaching the ILS, Arrival will hand you over to Geneva Final on 120.300
MHz. The Final controller, will vector and clear you for the ILS or any other approach you
requested, need. Be prepared for speed restrictions!
When contacting Final, you should state your callsign only (if not other advised)! This
will lower the load on the frequency.
When cleared for the ILS approach, do always report established, Final will then ask you
to contact Tower on 118.700 MHz.

Tower
On initial contact, Tower might only say “Hello”. This is nothing to worry about, just continue
your approach.
In case of a go around, Tower will tell you to execute missed approach procedure as published
and will hand you over to Arrival. Be sure you are ready for a go around at any time during
the approach!

Vacating the runway
Depending on the runway in use, there are preferred taxiways for vacating the runway.
When runway 23 is in service, try to vacate via D, or latest at E. Doing so will ensure a
maximum use of the airport’s ground movements capacity, as you won’t have long to taxi to
your gate, which means there is less traffic on the taxiways.
When runway 05 is in service, try to vacate via C, latest at B.

Contacting Apron
As soon as you vacated the runway, Tower will advise you to contact Apron on 121.850 Mhz.
As soon as you are on Apron frequency, your initial contact should only contain:



Callsign
Taxiway you vacated on

Example:



Pilot – Geneva Apron Bonjour, Topswiss 7 8 Yankee Papa, vacated via E
ATC – Topswiss 7 8 Yankee Papa, Geneva Apron Bonjour, taxi via OUTER, LINK 2,
INNER to Gate A5

The controller does know which gate you’ve been assigned to, don’t request any gate!
The gate indicated on the booking is the most likely expected gate. In case of delays,
the ATC will assign new gates, which might not correspond to the website anymore.

Briefing for Pilots
Parking and disconnecting
When you are on blocks, do not report anything, just leave the frequency !
Disconnect latest 10 minutes after you have arrived at your parking position. If you continue
your flight, disconnect, recheck your gate for departure and repeat the procedure written in the
Departure sequence above.
