General

At The Ground

Always have charts available! The easiest way to find some charts is to use Chartfox (Vatsim Login required).

Hold short of the dashed yellow line in front of a taxiway

Hold Short Instructions:
Sometimes hold short instructions are possible. If you are given a hold short of instruction: Hold in front of the dashed yellow line, do not turn into the taxiway! See the example image.

It might happen that you were advised to hold short of a runway intersection (e.g. L3 or L20). Do not turn into it, it will be assigned by Tower on initial contact!

Give way Instruction:
Often you will hear an instruction to continue taxi as number two behind a passing aircraft (e.g. “Taxi to holdingpoint runway 07 via M L2 and K, at November number 2 behind company A320 from the left”). This means, you have to give way to this aircraft at the crossing taxiway. Please make sure to follow this instruction correctly, otherwise ask the controller if the mentioned traffic is not in sight or you are unsure what to do.

Departing Traffic

Start-Up and Enroute (IFR) Clearance

In Germany you have to request “start-up” to get your IFR clearance. This does not include the pushback, therefore a separate approval is required!

  • Always check the current ATIS first!
  • Report Callsign, ATIS Information and request start-up
    (e.g. “Lufthansa 12FU, Information A, request start-up and enroute clearance.”)
  • Only request start-up when you are ready for pushback within the next 5 minutes
  • Clearance also available via Datalink (PDC/DCL via Hoppie ACARS System) - check Controller Info for Airport Code!
  • Valid routes out of Stuttgart are available via grd.aero-nav.com.

Pushback

Only ask for Pushback if you are able to start pushback immediately when receiving pushback approval! Below you will find a tutorial how to prepare the most common pushback tools and use it the most efficient way. It might be possible that ATC will instruct you to do a specific routing for pushback (into a specific taxiway, push and then pull foreward, etc.). Always report when unable or if you do not understand the instruction! Set your Squawk and turn on your Transponder before offblock.

Departure

Departure frequency will not be issued by Tower. Chech the ATIS for Departure Frequency!
Use ICAO Noise Abatement Departure Procedure 2. Accelerate to flap retraction speed at 1000AGL (~1400ft on your altimeter).

Do not climb above your initial climb until advised by ATC! You will receive your initial climb with your startup clearance and you can find it on the departure charts (written part) as well. At Stuttgart is usually always 5000ft.

Note that most SIDs have a speed limit for the first turn which always has to be adhered to, unless cleared otherwise by ATC.
