  • ALL ACFT parked at Terminal Apron between 01-08

    DO NOT NEED PUSHBACK. In case of active ground frequency, DO NOT request PUSHBACK in order to avoid unnecessary messages. Request taxi instead.

  • As FNLU doesn’t have too many gates for wide-body-twin-jet airliners, big sized AFCTS in order to taxi to parking in the Terminal Apron 01-08, as indicated bellow, shall use runway 25 to taxi to taxiway Bravo

  • As this event will be in Training Server, you are able to sign up as ATC even if you aren’t an IFATC member (one day I said that IFATC guys are the best in this community, that’s true). Although, there might not be ATC, please, use UNICOM correctly.

  • Spawn 20 - 5 minutes prior the scheduled time.

  • Wait for ATC until 5 minutes after the scheduled event time, if ATC doesn’t appear, feel free to start your flight.
    Please do not taxi trough others.

  • Runway usage and Procedures - All departures or eventual landings shall be in RWY 23. There aren’t any SIDs and STARs available in IF, please check the chart below.
