Departing Aircraft

Aerodrome must coordinate departing flights with approach control or area control (Depending on which control departing aircraft talk to) unless the free flow method of departure is in use. Aerodrome should request a release (either when the aircraft is taxiing or holding short of the runway) in the following format: "Request Release"<Callsign> <Departure Route>

Example: "Request Release, BAW123 on a BPK1T" Approach will then either release the aircraft or specify a time when the aircraft can be released.

Free Flow

If the free flow method of departure is in use, then aerodrome does not have to request a release on each aircraft - They can release them in turn. This continues until free flow is cancelled (i.e. during a missed approach)

Non-Airways

Aerodrome must coordinate with approach/area any aircraft who wish to depart with a non-airways clearance (Also aircraft who are unable to fly a SID). Approach/Area will specify what they require the aircraft to do once airborne.

Arriving Aircraft

Under normal circumstances, aerodrome does not have to coordinate anything with approach/area regarding arriving flights, except any final approach spacing requirements.

Departing VFR When issuing a departure clearance to VFR aircraft (except those wishing to remain within the circuit), the clearance must be issued by approach control and then relayed to the pilot via aerodrome control:

"Request clearance, GBGGD a C172 to Bournemouth, leaving the zone to the North-East."

"GBGGD is cleared to the North-Eastern zone boundary, not above altitude 2500ft, VFR, QNH1018mb, squawk 7055, release subject radar."

"GBGGD is cleared to the North-Eastern zone boundary, not above altitude 2500ft, VFR, QNH1018mb, squawk 7055, release subject radar."
