Ground and Tower
Baden Ground is responsible for startup and enroute clearance and all aircraft movements at the airport.
All positions at EDSB are taxi-out positions, no pushback is required. Positions 18 - 27 are only for Code C aircraft (max. B739/A321), Positions 18A and 19A can be used up to Code D (B764). Bigger aircraft can park between Positions 18 and 21, parallel to the taxiway, that is closed as long as this traffic is parked there. Aprons 4 is close to the GAT used for GA traffic, Apron 3 should be used for Buisness GA traffic.
RWY 21 is preferred for usage up to a tailwind component of 5 knots.

Traffic Pattern: Traffic Pattern east of the airport for traffic > 5,7 t MTOW (German aircraft registration D-Cxxx, D-Bxxx, D-Axxx) are only authorized at minimum 2000ft MSL and should not cross the highway (A5).
Baden-Oos EDTB: Traffic in the pattern, approaching or departing Baden-Oos airfield does not need to contact Karlsruhe Tower. This traffic has to stay below 1600ft MSL.
Prior takeoff clearance a departure release by Langen Radar is required for all IFR flights. Departing IFR traffic switches to departure frequency without a separate instruction, immediately when airborne.
All departures shall be separated by radar separation or wake turbulence separation, whichever is greater. Departures flying the same SID shall be spaced by at least 5NM when the following aircraft overflies the departure end of runway.
