General

Overview

This is a copy of the original LoA, printed as PDF Version 8th of November 2018. This LoA may only be used within the simulated VATSIM environment. Unauthorized use, distribution, duplication or modification of this document on any media, website or in any form is strictly prohibited.

Purpose

The purpose of this Letter of Agreement is to define the coordination procedures to be applied between München FIR and Wien FIR when providing ATS to air traffic (IFR/VFR) on the VATSIM network. All information and procedures described in this Letter of Agreement shall not be used for real world purposes.

Operational Status

All operational significant information and procedures contained in this Letter of Agreement shall be distributed to all concerned controllers by appropriate means. This Letter of Agreement itself constitutes public information.

Validity

This Letter of Agreement becomes effective on November 8th, 2018 and supersedes the Letter of Agreement between München FIR and Wien FIR dated November 1st, 2012.

Procedures for Coordination

Definitions

A release is an authorization for the accepting ATS unit to climb, descend and/or turn (by no more than 45°) a specific aircraft before the transfer of control point. The transferring ATS unit remains responsible for separation within its Area of Responsibility unless otherwise agreed.

Whereever VATSIM callsigns are used to describe the terms of a certain procedure, this procedure is also applicable for all higher stations that take over the responsibilities of said station. E.g., procedures for an APP-stations are also applicable for the respective CTR station fulfilling the duties of said APP station.

The use of VATSIM callsigns in this document includes any variation of said callsign. E.g. any procedure applicable for EDMM_CTR may also be used by EDMM_X_CTR or EDUU_X_CTR.

COP: Coordination Point.

LoR: Line of responsibility.

General Conditions

Coordination of flights shall take place via the agreed coordination points (COP).

Coordinated flights shall be handed off via a valid COP. Any deviation shall be coordinated verbally, by text or by Euroscope inter-sector coordination.

Traffic shall be handed off at the levels, defined in the regulations below. If a specified level restriction cannot be met due to a lower RFL, traffic shall be handed off at RFL, if this does not cause a conflict with any other traffic. Otherwise traffic shall be coordinated.

If a traffic situation is not covered herein, individual coordination between the concerned sectors shall be made.

After Transfer of communications, traffic is NOT released for climb, descent or turns until Transfer of control or otherwise specified in this Letter of Agreement.

↑FLxxx / ↓FLxxx means „descending / climbing to a specified FL“, without any further restriction. Any required crossing/speed restriction shall be added separately.

VFR flights from München FIR to Wien FIR

For controlled VFR flights and VFR at night flights above 2500 feet GND coordination, transfer of control and transfer of communication shall take place as for IFR flights. Uncontrolled VFR flights shall be transferred to the appropriate sector if in radio contact. If online, LOVV_I_CTR (Wien Information), 124.400, shall be the primary sector for uncontrolled VFR flights.

VFR flights from Wien FIR to München FIR

For controlled VFR flights and VFR at night flights above 2500 feet GND coordination, transfer of control and transfer of communication shall take place as for IFR flights. Uncontrolled VFR flights shall be transferred to the appropriate sector if in radio contact. If online, EDMM_I_CTR (München Information), 120.650, shall be the primary sector for uncontrolled VFR flights.

Special Procedures

Releases from LOVV_CTR to EDMM_CTR

EDMM_CTR may clear flights

  • from/abeam SBG VOR direct to any position within AoR München.
  • Direct to STEIN, SASAL, TOVKA, MAREG or ABLOM entering LOVV airspace.

EDMM_CTR may turn flights

  • Planned via SUBEN/RENKA/LAMSI/DEXIT 10nm east of ROCKY Line.

Releases from EDMM_CTR to LOVV_CTR

LOVV_CTR may clear flights

  • With ADES EDDS planned via TITIG/KIRDI with an RFL of FL200 or above direct MUN VOR.
  • Planned via LALIN direct to LALIN.

LOVV_CTR may turn flights

  • Planned via UL725 to the right when passing UNKEN.
  • Planned via LATLO, VAROB or MODSA after passing UL725.

LOWI Procedures

  • LOWI_APP may turn and descend flights with ADES LOWI passing the release line Innsbruck.
  • LOWI_APP may use a 3nm surveillance separation minimum south of the release line Innsbruck as long as all aircraft concerned are on the frequency of LOWI_APP
  • EDMM_CTR shall clear flights inbound LOWI planned via TULSI for the respective STAR.
  • EDMM_CTR may clear flights with ADES LOWI planned via ELMEM direct to ELMEM and flights planned via RTT direct to RTT.
  • LOWI_APP may clear flights direct to KONIN/KOGOL/KPT
  • LOWI_APP may clear flights ADES EDDM direct to ANDEC.

EDDM Procedures

Flights ADEP EDDM are released for climb by EDMM_CTR to B1 up to FL230 without further coordination.

Transfer of Control and Transfer of Communications

Transfer of Control

Transfer of Control shall take place at the AoR boundary. If the downstream sector in EuroScope is set to >.break<, the #Hand-Off procedure is suspended and transfer of communication can only take place after the downstream sector has assumed the flight via the appropriate function of the radar client. If it becomes necessary to reduce or suspend transfers, a 5 minute prior notification is required. When transfers are suspended, the #Hand-Off procedure is suspended.

Silent transfer of control

The following values for silent transfer of control apply:

  • If preceeding aircraft is faster: 10nm
  • If preceeding aircraft is faster (ADES EDDM): 7nm
  • If succeeding aircraft is faster by 40kts/M0.1 or less: 30nm
  • If succeeding aircraft is faster by 20kts/M0.05 or less: 20nm

Transfer of Communications

Transfer of Communications shall take place no later than Transfer of Control.

Hand-Off procedure

Unless otherwise agreed between stations online, the following hand-off procedure shall apply:

1. The upstream sector initiates a transfer via the appropriate function of the radar client.

2. The upstream sector sends the aircraft to the frequency of the downstream sector by voice or text.

3. Upon initial call the downstream sector assumes the flight via the appropriate function of the radar client.

SSR Code Assignment

Both ATS units shall transfer flights on verified discrete SSR codes. Any change of SSR code by the accepting ATS unit may only take place after the transfer of control point.
