  • If unable to follow FMS/RNAV SID, inform ATC when requesting clearance. Expect to be assigned a SID and to follow special instructions given in the SID charts.

SID Assignment

Unless otherwise instructed, aircraft cleared via SID shall climb to 5000 ft.

Propeller departures

Between 07 and 22 local time, propeller aircraft may be cleared via propeller SIDs followed by radar vectoring with initial climb clearance varying between 4000 and 5000 ft.


Pushback is normal procedure for aircraft Code B and larger.

Generally, a push-back direction is included in the clearance, facing north or south.

Use of transponder

The assigned transponder code shall be selected and the transponder activated at the request for push-back. After landing, the transponder shall remain activated until reaching the parking stand and be switched to standby immediately after parking.


Landing aircraft shall, after landing, completely vacate the runway and hold position on TWY Y until taxi clearance is obtained.
