Departing Traffic

Before Connecting to VATSIM

Please make sure you have a current version of your Navdata and a valid route.

Delivery – Clearance (Start-up and Enroute Clearance)

When requesting your “Clearance” in Germany, you will always receive “start-up” and your IFR (Enroute) Clearance – “start-up” does not mean that you are allowed to pushback.

Ground – Pushback

As the apron in Bremen is not the biggest, it is even more important that you only request pushback when you are able to start it immediately after receiving the approval. To keep a good flow of traffic ATC might instruct you to do a specific pushback-routing (e.g. into another taxiway, push and then pull forward, etc.) Always report when unable or if you do not understand the instruction.

Ground – Taxi

During taxi the controller might tell you to hold short of certain taxiways or give way to other aircrafts. To not cause any conflicts it is very important to follow the instructions correctly or to ask if you are unsure what to do.

Tower/Radar – Departure

When airborne contact the Departure Controller on the Frequency stated in the ATIS, the charts or that was given to you by the Delivery Controller! You will not receive a handoff by Tower.

Do not climb above your initial climb until advised by ATC!

Arriving Traffic
