VCCT AD 2.20 LOCAL AERODROME REGULATIONS

1.            Start-up Clearance 

1.1  In order to obtain the start-up clearance, pilots shall contact the Ground Control frequency(131.90 MHz) with, 

a)    Call sign,

b)    Aircraft type with frame number,

c)    Standing position/ Parking Location,

d)    Endurance,

e)    Elapse Time,

f)     POB,

g)    Intended sector to operate/Route to be flown,

h)    Intended levels. 

1.2 Upon receiving the above details, the Ground Controller will approve the start-up and will issue. 

a)    The runway to be used,

b)    The surface wind direction and speed, including significant variations therefrom,

c)    The QNH altimeter setting,

d)    The air temperature,

e)    Visibility,

f)     The correct time in UTC (If required). 

2.            Aircraft Taxing 

Upon receiving the ATC clearance, the pilot shall read back the ATC clearance. Once the pilot read back the ATC clearance correctly, aircraft will be changed over to the aerodrome control for taxi clearance. Upon landing, the taxi clearance to vacate the runway to the dispersal area will be disseminated by the aerodrome  control frequency until the marshaller takes over the control. In case of a running change, the pilot should contact the ground control with the respective flight details and obtain fresh ATC clearance from the ground control.
