Any aircraft (code A to E inclusive) may exit runway 05 via A1, B1 or E1.

Stand 30 is preferred for pilots starting at EGPF flying heavy aircraft.

Aircraft wishing to enter the CTR or TMA under IFR direct from the FIR must observe the normal procedure for joining Controlled Airspace. For aircraft joining from the West a Reporting Point ROBBO (GOW RDL 281°/16 nm) is established at the TMA Boundary and pilots should anticipate joining clearance via this point.
