Arrival - Sector Pfalz

The Langen Radar Sector Pfalz (PFA) is responsible for the arrival duties. He is responsible for traffic with origin or destination Saarbrücken (EDDR), the military airport Ramstein (ETAR) and the airfield Zweibrücken (EDRZ).

For runway 09 only RNP and VOR approaches are available. Runway 27 also has an ILS (CAT I) and NDB approach. For all airports inside the sector there are no STARs available and all of them need vectors or directs after their last waypoint towards the final.

The MVA within the sector is between 3000ft and 5000ft MSL. MIL charts for ETAR are available here (GEMIL FLIP VAD).

Departing traffic out of Saarbrücken will leave the sector via GERKU at FL210 and GTQ at FL80.

Zweibrücken: The airfield Zweibrücken has an RMZ and published IFR departure and arrival procedures. Pfalz is responsible to issue the remote IFR clearence to departing traffic out of EDRZ.

Ramstein: The US Army Air Base Ramstein uses FAA procedures in real life. On Vatsim the German phraseology should be used if not familar with other procedures. It is important to know that all SIDs out of ETAR uses Transitions to the last waypoint.
