Departing IFR aircraft out of Liverpool should report the following information when requesting clearance; callsign, aircraft type, information, QNH and stand number.
“Liverpool Ground, Ryanair 123, request clearance to Palma, Boeing 737-800, information A, QNH 1010 stand 7”
Pilots should also note that the initial altitude on all Liverpool SIDs is 4000ft on the Liverpool QNH, thus aircraft should not climb above this altitude until instructed by ATC.
Aircraft flying to Manchester should file via a Wallasey (WAL) departure, then DCT MIRSI at flight level 80.
Aircraft flying into Liverpool should file a route terminating at one of the STAR fixes described in the table below, before reaching the final fix aircraft will receive a STAR arrival into Liverpool and should report to ATC if they are unable to fly this. When contacting Liverpool Radar, pilots should inform radar of their cleared level, aircraft type, and information received.
“Liverpool Radar, Ryanair 123, descending flight level 70, Boeing 737-800, information A”
KEGUN arrivals are only used during the hours 2000-0700 local hence pilots should not file via these STARs outside of these hours.
Pilots wishing to fly a non-ILS approach should inform Liverpool Radar on first contact.
Liverpool Aerodrome is surrounded by class D controlled airspace. S/VFR traffic must be in receipt of a valid clearance before entering class D airspace. Pilots should file a flight plan which includes the point at which they intend to enter/exit controlled airspace. At Liverpool this should be in the form of a VRP as defined in the Entry/Exit chart.
Arriving VFR aircraft should free call Liverpool Radar 5 minutes before entering the Liverpool Control Zone. Pilots should expect to enter the zone via a published VRP or a standard visual routing as described below:
|Runway / Route||Description||Max Altitude|
|27 / North||Enter the CTR via the Kirkby VRP, route east of M57 Motorway, then as directed by ATC.||1500ft|
|27 / South||Enter the CTR via the Oulton Park VRP, route to the western edge of Helsby, then as directed by ATC.||1500ft|
|09 / North||Enter the CTR via the Seaforth VRP, route via the River Mersey, then as directed by ATC.||1500ft|
|09 / South||Enter the CTR via the Chester VRP, follow M53 Motorway to the Outlet Village at Junction 10, then as directed by ATC. Remain east of EG R311 (Capenhurst).||1500ft|
Liverpool is situated within class D airspace, therefore all VFR pilots flying within the vicinity of Liverpool should be in receipt of ATC clearance. Pilots will be issued with a clearance to leave the aerodrome via a published VRP or standard visual routing. The routings are as follows:
|Runway / Route||Description||Max Altitude|
|27 / North||Route via the River Mersey to leave the CTR via the Seaforth VRP.||1500ft|
|27 / South||Cross the River Mersey and follow the M53 to leave the CTR via the Chester VRP.||1500ft|
|09 / North||Route east of the M57 to leave the CTR via the Kirkby VRP.||1500ft|
|09 / South||Cross the River Mersey to leave the CTR via the Oulton Park VRP.||1500ft|
Circuits are normally conducted to the south of the Aerodrome at an altitude of not above altitude 1500ft on the QNH.
Depending upon the traffic situation, the controller may swap the circuit direction. Circuit traffic will be given the code 7010 to squawk.
