Delivery

VFR traffic, in contrast to real procedures, does not have to request startup at Delivery, but can report ready for taxi directly to the ground control.

Startup: When startup clearance cannot be given immediately or the pilot is not ready for startup within the next 5 minutes during high traffic situations, the pilot needs to stay on Delivery frequency until he receives startup clearance. If an expected startup time (TSAT) exists, the pilot should be informed about it. This procedure might be necessary during events with a lot of outbound traffic.

Capacity: Due to a limited capacity for outbound traffic on ground, there should not be more than 12 active startup clearances at the same time (including SUG, PBG, TXG).

Euroscope: Delivery shall ensure that the initial climb is set and the correct SID is coded into the flightplan (very important for Center!). When issuing startup the corresponding ground state "SUG" (Startup Given) and the clearance received flag need to be set.

Departure Routes

The standard intrument departure procedures from Cologne-Bonn lead to the waypoints NVO, WYP, COL, PODIP and KUMIK. The initial climb for all departures is 5000 ft MSL.

Vectored Departures

If pilots are unable to fly a standard instrument departure (even an older version of the current SID) a vectored departure can be coordinated between Delivery and Arrival.

Primary runway heading and an initial climb of 4000ft should be used. Other coordinations are always possible. At Euroscope the SID with RVxxxxx should be selected (xxxxx = first waypoint).

At Cologne-Bonn Airport we offer Datalink Clearance to the pilots throughout the Hoppie System and the Topsky Plugin. The airport code EDDK should be used (already preselected).

An example of the DCL message the pilot will receive can be seen below. It's important that the current ATIS Designator is entered in the remarks field. By default startup always needs to be approved seperately.
