Procedures

IFR Departures

IFR Departures should, wherever possible, plan to fly one of the established Standard Instrument Departures (SIDs). Non-standard routings are available but may be subject to some delay depending on ATC capacity.

VFR Departures

Flights departing Cardiff under the VFR should expect to be issued one of the published VFR departure routes out of the CTR. The phraseology will be:

"Cleared to leave the Cardiff control zone via the published VFR ______ route, not above altitude 1500ft QNH ____"

You may be issued a squawk for radar surveillance purposes, the issue of a squawk does not imply that a radar service will be given once outside the zone however.
