atc-discussion Gatwick SIDs

Recommended Posts

Harry Sugden

Hi all, particularly those who control Gatwick,

I have been on London a few times in the last weeks where controllers have asked pilots if they are able to accept the new NOVMA departure which replaced both the conventional and RNAV KENET SIDs from runway 26L. Can I please ask that if they are unable (due to an out of date AIRAC), that you do not then route aircraft via SAM SIDs instead, as having filed a KENET, this take them in a completely different direction? If they only have the old KENET for 26L, KENET is fine.

08R is of course a different story, since KENET conventional SIDs still exist, but not the RNAV (#KENET1Z). So if someone has the IMVUR1Z departure, this has preference over both the old KENET and SAM SIDs. If they do not have the IMVUR departure, please clear on either KENET or SAM.

There have also been some changes to CLN->FRANE too.

May I also suggest that if the SID is no longer published on charts, it might be pertinent to remind the pilot of the initial climb restriction for the old SID? (It will be the same as the new one)

In sum:

Filed Routing

Active Runway

New Routing

New SID

New SID not available (i.e. not updated AIRAC)? Leave route as filed, then clear on…

CLN

26L

CLN DCT LEDBO M604... becomes ->
             FRANE M604...

CLN L620 REDFA... becomes ->
             FRANE M604 GASBA M197 REDFA...

CLN P44 SOMVA... becomes ->
             FRANE M604 PAAVO Q295 SOMVA...

FRANE1X

CLN9M

08R

FRANE1Z

CLN5P

KENET

26L

NOVMA L620 NIBDA N14 KENET

#KENET2M*

KENET3P

SAM

NOVMA L620 SAM

NOVMA1X

#SAM2M **

Thanks

I find myself asking ground controllers to check re-routes a lot on KK_TWR. This post is something that I think all EGKK endorsed s1's should be aware of. A lot of the time people don't even seem to be asked if they can accept the truncated RNAV departures they are just sent away with the older SID's and the non RNAV original SID's. Would be good if checking flightplans was emphasised more in the endorsement session. It might just be the students not learning from the session but it seems to be a common problem with new students on tower as well.

      Hello Moderators,
      I have been waiting a long time for the next OBS ATC training session so I can carry on with my training. I have finished the theory course already. Hopefully I will get one soon.

      Hello all,
      When setting up an atis, I like to add additional information such as: "Delivery is closed" etc. However, whenever a new atis is updated, the information resets itself, removing my addition information and the only way I see of doing it is to re-add the information every time a new atis is updated. Is there a better way of doing this?
      Thanks,
      Ed

      Hi all,
      As I see this coming up on Slack, I thought I'd post this here while the official BoG blog post is being proof-read and posted: the UK2 server has been taken out of service and the UK1 server has been renamed to just "UK". In your client, you would need to change the server to "UK". However, for voice, I've found there's no need to change any of your voice configuration settings as far as servers are concerned.
      From personal experience, some of the servers (Germany, in particular) seem to have some problems with the METARs being displayed: https://forums.vatsim.net/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=79161 , however, the UK server seems to have no issue with them. I hope this helps somebody while we all settle down with the change and the official announcement becomes public 😄

      Just in case anyone hadn't seen this plugin pop up on the .net forums
      https://github.com/chembergj/RDF
      It draws a circle around the aircraft transmitting (if on screen), or a line to the aircraft if off screen. Can be a massive help when controlling a busy bandboxed sector.
      Cheers,
      Luke

      Hi there,
      As you can probably guess I am new here, I am heavily interested in (eventually) becoming an ATC but want to know how I can begin to observe current communications. I have tried to search through the forums to find a teamspeak IP as the registration link isn't working for me in some assistance on how to do this as I rather confused with the software. Thanks
