Pushback with not ground

Hi πŸ‘‹
If a Airport ground is not active but tower is active , can I pushback sending nothing to tower ?
Thank you very much all.

If ground is inactive, utilize Unicom for your pushback and taxi. Then switch over to the active tower. (I think)


Can someone else can confirm this please.
Thank you

Thank you starz πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

Yep, I can confirm it. Only exception I can think of is VNLK where you request at the gate.


But on the taxiway still with Unicom ?

Yep! Unicom until ready to takeoff or cross the runway.

If there’s only Tower and no ground, use Unicom as per usual then switch to tower when the time is appropriate

(You actually can’t use Unicom to announce pushback so you would just announce your taxiing then switch)


Thank you πŸ˜‰
