active 2019-01-03 Agreements in TC North East

Recommended Posts

Chris Pawley

Effective 03 January 2019

Due to the implimentation of the TC VATON airspace on VATSIM - our current sectors and agreements do not allow the full flexibility of the airspace to be exploited by TC North East. We therefore have changes some agreements between sectors.

Currently, two agreements exist in the South-West corner of this sector which can cause problems for the controller of TC North East.

  • AC Worthing->TC North East : Essex inbounds are routing VATON->BPK descending FL140 level BPK
  • TC South East -> AC Worthing : Gatwick outbounds are on a heading West of LAM, towards HEMEL climbing FL130 to FL190 (unknown to TC North East) - FL130 must be achieved by the TC South East/TC North East boundary.

We considered changing the boundary between AC Worthing and TC North East here, but found it would limit the controller further (especially when climbing Heathrow outbounds via Brookman's Park)

New Agreements

  • Essex inbounds will be handed from AC Worthing to TC North East descending FL160 (no level by point, but approx VATON)

This agreement will be shown with a down arrow to indicating descending, no level by

  • TC South East-> AC Worthing : Agreement does not change, traffic needs to climb such that it crosses the TC South East/TC North East boundary at or FL130 (as currently)
  • AC Worthing will ensure this traffic climbs FL155 or higher before a line parrallel to the North edge of the London CTA and hand to AC Daventry climbing FL190.

See below a schematic for the relative positions and level by points:

We have implimented the new agreement in the UK Sector File and will provide new agreed level diagrams as soon as is practicable.

 

Thanks to @Harry Sugden for preparing the graphics for these changes.

      A new position Southend Director (EGMC_APP, 132.450) is available for us. This position serves as a split of Southend Radar (EGMC_R_APP, 130.775) during times of high workload and focusses on aircraft inbound to Southend. This allows the Radar controller to conduct the other duties of the combined approach unit. This position is particularly useful when SRAs are in use.
