PILOT

How do I get the password to land?
You will be asked a simple question by Dubai Tower when established on the ILS relating to the arrival charts for your arrival. (STAR and ILS charts).

For example – if you are arriving on the VUTEB9C STAR for ILS RWY 30L you might be asked what altitude and speed restriction that applies at GITBO. Or you might be asked what is the MDA for CAT1 ILS 30L.

If you answer wrong – you will be asked to Go Around and follow the missed approach procedures or as advised by ATC. Then you can expect to be vectored back for another approach. During that time you can check the charts again for the correct answer.

On your second approach if you get the answer wrong again you will be sent around again, but this time expect to be vectored and diverted to Sharjah OMSJ airport for landing.

Flight plan:
OBBI > OMDB : ASTAD UN318 ALSEM L305 KIVUS P559 PUSOT M322 DATOB : MAX FL430

> Be prepared – have access to charts.
> Note the SID altitude restrictions and STAR speed restrictions.

[13 JAN| 17.00z – 20.00z] [XG] Dubai Single Runway operations

Due to much needed maintenance Dubai (OMDB) will be reduced to a single runway January 13th 17z-20z. At the same time essential maintenance will be carried out on the ILS system.  Pilots and controllers will need to pay extra attention and rely on RNAV (GNSS) approaches.

 


EVENT DETAILS

Event Date: Saturday, January 13th 2018
Event Time: 1700z – 2000z
Event Type: Fly In/Out – Single Runway operations

Countries: United Arab Emirates
Airports involved: OMDB


WHICH RUNWAY ?

Shortly before the event a simulated NOTAM will be published on the this post notifying pilots which runway is closed. ATC units will also clearly show in their ATIS which is the active runway and reiterate that the ILS is offline.


NO ILS – WHAT DO I DO?:

The ILS will not be operational and ATC will NOT be clearing you to intercept the ILS.

For this event you will need to be able and ready to accurately fly the RNAV (GNSS) approach to the active runway. We cannot predict the weather so it is possible that visual approaches will not be available.

You will need to understand your particular aircraft and how to correctly setup and execute an RNAV approach.

More information about RNAV can be found on the IVAO pilot training documentation site – RNP Operations here.

If you arrive and are unable to fly the RNAV approach, you may get diverted to OMSJ or OMDW. Note that OMDW is not in the default scenery so inform ATC you are unable and you will divert to OMSJ if you do not have scenery.


PILOT

No bookings are required. You can decide if you want to depart or arrive anytime during the event and fly to/from where ever you wish.

Please ensure your flight plan includes valid SID or STAR entry/exit points as always.

If you’re looking for a good short flight – we suggest Doha Hamad (OTHH) as your destination or departure airport.

All pilots are kindly requested to:
> Be prepared – have access to charts.
> Note the SID altitude restrictions and STAR speed restrictions.
> Be ready – you may be asked to enter holds, fly headings and speeds.
> Remember – Aviate, Navigate, Communicate.
> Maintain radio etiquette.


SCENERY

We suggests all pilots to use a freeware or a payware scenery as default sceneries in the flight simulators are out of date or airport does not exist.

OMDB: Click here for scenery suggestions The default scenery for OMDB is very outdated and significantly different to real life. We highly recommend you install a good and up to date scenery.
