Cooperation with vACC Switzerland

Due to the location of Friedrichshafen Airport, there is a co-operation agreement between FIR München and vACC Switzerland that allows controllers from both sides to control at the airport.

IFR operations

Friedrichshafen Airport is located below the so-called ARFA sector, arrivals and departures are normally controlled by Alps Radar (LSFA_APP 119.925), which also covers this position in the absence of Friedrichshafen Tower. If this position is not staffed, the higher-level positions take over this role as follows:

EDNY_TWR >> LSFA_APP >> LSZH_DEP >> LSZH_APP >> LSAZ_x_CTR >> LSAS_CTR >> EDMM_Z_CTR etc.

Apart from the CTR, EDNY is located in Class E airspace. A TMZ (Transponder Mandatory Zone) for VFR traffic has been established. Nevertheless, attentive airspace observation is also necessary for IFR traffic.

Departures to the south via TRA N850 can generally expect a DCT GERSA when passing the MRVA. Departures via SID TRA #E usually do not have to fly the loop, but can expect a left DCT TRA or right DCT GERSA.

Due to the low volume of traffic, RNAV transitions are rarely used. Approaches usually receive radar vectors on the final.

ILS 06 and 24 transmit on the same frequency. In reality, the correct ILS is switched on by the tower. In the flight simulators, the correct ILS is (hopefully) set automatically depending on the direction to the airport.

Radar

EDNY_TWR does not have a radar that is authorised for ATC purposes or separation. Speed assignments by TWR are only permitted after coordination with APP.

Low visibility procedures

The ILS 24 is approved up to Cat III and can be used during LVP. EDNY_TWR has no ground radar. To protect the ILS signal, no aircraft may park on the Liebherr apron during LVP.

Visual approaches and departures

EDNY is one of the very few airports in Germany where visual approaches and departures are permitted for all IFR flights, regardless of the size of the aircraft.

The following applies to visual approaches:

Visual departures are most commonly DCT to the waypoint ALAGO, instead of flying the SID.
