Sector Neckar Low


Mannheim/City only has instrument approaches for runway 27. Both the LOC and RNP approach have a non-standard 3.7° glide path.

During 09 operations, arrivals need to fly a visual circling procedure south of the airport. The clearance for the visual circling has to be part of the approach clearance.

ATC: JMP902, cleared localizer approach runway 27, followed by circling runway 09.

Alternatively, upon coordination with Tower, pilots can be cleared for a straight-in visual approach into runway 09.
