What to expectEdit

ApproachEdit

  • Since the runways are aligned with the valley obstacle clearance is not a major issue on the extended centerline in either direction, nevertheless applying cold temperature correction is absolutely necessary for any of the MEAs and crossing altitudes. This especially counts for the reversal procedures which can lead over high terrain.
  • Approaching Erzurum from the west expect a straight-in approach for ILS/DME II 08L or else HOCAM/GELIN/DAMAT arrivals followed by ILS/DME I 26R
  • Note that the procedure turn for ILS/DME 26R is a non-standard 50/230 turn with a maximum speed of 185 KIAS, check the coded version in the FMS.
  • The high density altitude will most likely make early configuration necesary in order to be established normally on approach.
  • Be aware of the arrestor cables installed on the runway, they are located 453 m / 1468 ft from the threshold 08L and 438 m / 1437 ft from the threshold 26R. Often both are active, its best to ask the tower on final to avoid a nasty surprise on touchdown.

TaxiEdit

DepartureEdit

  • Departing towards the west from runway 08L pay attention to the maximum speed in the reversal turn, flying this on LNAV might take you out further than the procedure allows.
  • Hook barriers runway 08L/R at 453 meters from threshold.
  • Hook barriers runway 26L/R at 438 meters from threshold.
