Fritzlar Ground is responsible for all enroute and startup clearances as well as ground movements at the airport.

Enroute clearances

All enroute clearances must be coordinated with Fritzlar Radar. The clearance will be given by Fritzlar Radar to be relayed to the pilot by Fritzlar Ground. Usually, pilots are first given their startup and taxi clearance and the enroute clearance is coordinated while the aircraft is on its way to the runway to be given at the holding point shortly before departure. If Fritzlar Radar is offline, the enroute clearance has to be coordinated with the appropriate civilian radar controller.

Further information on clearances to be given can be found in the ETHF Approach SOP.


All IFR and VFR aircraft at Fritzlar require a startup clearance from Fritzlar Ground.
