Here’s another chance to test your “AVsavvy”.
Suppose you are traveling from KHPN to EGLF and plan on an ETA of 1300 local. Is a PPR required for your scheduled arrival time?
The following is information that will assist in determining if a slot if required:
EGLF Airport Information:
OVERTIME IS NOT AVAILABLE AT THIS AIRPORT.
OPS ON SAT DURING NORMAL HRS ARE CHARGED A SPECIAL SURCHARGE, APPLIES
FOR OPS ON SAT.
OPS ON SUN DURING NORMAL HRS ARE CHARGED A SPECIAL SURCHARGE FOR OPS
ON SUN. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO BANK HOLIDAYS.
CHAPTER/STAGE 2 ACFT NOT ACCEPTED AT FARNBOROUGH.
A NOISE CERTIFICATE IS REQUIRED FOR ALL OPERATIONS AND MUST BE
SUBMITTED TO YOUR LOCAL HANDLER.
PPR IS REQUIRED FOR ALL OPERATIONS AT THIS AIRPORT. THIS PPR IS NOT
ONLY FOR THE ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE OF THE AIRCRAFT. IT WILL ALSO
BE USED TO ALLOW ACCESS TO THE AIRCRAFT WHILE ON THE GROUND. IT IS
THEREFORE IMPERATIVE THAT THE OPERATOR OF THE FLIGHT PROVIDES THE
PPR NUMBER TO ANYONE ASSOCIATED WITH THE FLIGHT. THIS WILL INCLUDE
BUT NOT LIMITED TO FLIGHT CREW, PASSENGERS, DRIVERS, CATERERS, BAGGAGE
VANS AND CHAUFFEURS. FOR SECURITY REASONS THE PPR NUMBER WILL NOT BE
ISSUED OR CONFIRMED BY TELEPHONE.
NOISE RESTRICTIONS AT TAG FARNBOROUGH NOW ALLOW ONLY THOSE JET ACFT
MEETING ICAO CHAPTER 4 CRITERIA, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF FLYING
ASSOCIATED WITH THE FARNBOROUGH INTL AIRSHOW. THIS DOES NOT MEAN THEY
MUST HOLD A CHAPTER 4 NOISE CERTIFICATE, AS ONLY ACFT DESIGNED AFTER
2006 MAY HAVE THIS; HOWEVER THEY MUST COMPLY WITH CHAPTER 4 NOISE CRITERIA.
Based on the above information, which option below is correct? Answer below and come back next Friday to see if you got the answer right!
