General

Scenery

It is highly recommended to have an up-to-date Scenery installed as the apron in Hamburg has changed a lot over the years. It is also important to know that even the payware sceneries do not reflect the current state of the apron!

When requesting your “Clearance” in Germany, you will always receive “start-up” and your IFR (Enroute) Clearance – “start-up” does not mean that you are allowed to pushback.

  • Always check the current ATIS!
  • “Eurowings4345, Information X, request start-up and enroute clearance”
  • You should only request your clearance when you are ready for pushback within the next 5 minutes.
  • You can also receive your clearance via Datalink (https://www.hoppie.nl/pub/) if it is stated in the Controller Info
  • The controller will tell you the SID, the initial climb and the squawk. (Pen and Paper might be useful)
  • If there is more than one Departure Controller online Delivery will also tell you your departure frequency

Apron - Pushback

As the apron in Hamburg is not the biggest, it is even more important that you only request pushback when you are able to start it immediately after receiving the approval. To keep a good flow of traffic ATC might instruct you to do a specific pushback-routing (e.g. on a blue or orange line, into another taxiway, push and then pull forward, etc.) Always report when unable or if you do not understand the instruction.

  • Set your assigned squawk and turn on your transponder before offblock
  • Positions 44-48 can be used as taxi-out positions for aircrafts with a wingspan of less than 25m

Apron - Taxi

During taxi the controller might tell you to hold short of certain taxiways or give way to other aircrafts. To not cause any conflicts it is very important to follow the instructions correctly or to ask if you are unsure what to do!

Tower/Radar - Departure


When passing 2000ft contact the Departure Controller on the Frequency stated in the ATIS, the charts or that was given to you by the Delivery Controller! You will not receive a handoff by Tower.

Do not climb above your initial climb until advised by ATC!

Arriving Traffic

Radar - Descend

Always check the ATIS and report the current letter to the Arrival Controller during your initial call. In the ATIS you will find the active landing runway and the approach type you can expect.
During the initial descend Bremen Radar will assign the appropriate STARs.

Waypoint 23 15 05 33 Holding
RIBSO P D A S 028°
right turns
NOLGO P D/(W) A S 005°
left turns
RARUP P D A S 276°
right turns
BOGMU P D A/(1N) S 229°
right turns

To meet the restrictions of the STAR you will have to be below FL110 at the Arrival Point (RIBSO, NOLGO, RARUP, BOGMU).

Arrival - Approach

Do not expect to fly the whole STAR! You will most likely get a shortcut more or less abeam the final approach fix. This is really important for your descent planning. Do not trust the optimum profile of your aircraft! Plan with 3000ft-4000ft abeam the final approach fix.
Also keep in mind that all arrivals from a certain point on have a speed limit of 220kts.

When contacting Hamburg Director report your Callsign only!

In periods of low traffic, expect shortcuts to one of the DHxxx Waypoints or radar vectors. Be prepared!

Tower - Landing

Expedite vacating the runway. Contact the ground/apron controller only when instructed to do so!

During taxi the controller might tell you to hold short of certain taxiways or give way to other aircrafts. To not cause any conflicts it is very important to follow the instructions correctly or to ask if you are unsure what to do!

VFR Traffic

Looking for free VFR Charts in Germany? Have look here https://www.openflightmaps.org/ed-germany/

As you can see on the map Hamburg has 8 Visual Reporting Points (VRPs). When entering or leaving the CTR please use the VRPs. State your desired VRP when contacting ATC.

VRP N1 N2 D S1 S2 W1 W2 C
NAV Antenna near Kisdorf Roundabout B432 near Norderstedt Highway crossing A1 and A24 Highway junction A7 and A261 "Köhlbrandbrücke" Yacht harbour near Wedel Highway crossing A7 and A23 Chimney at A23 near Pinneberg

Feel free to cross the CTR to have a look at the places Hamburg is known for!

(Rare:) During periods of high VFR traffic there might be a second tower controller that will assign you a squawk and helps you navigating in and out of the CTR e.g. by using radar vectors.
