Departures should route via the following waypoints: EXMOR N864 - North/West GIBSO L620 - East BHD N862 - South.
Exeter is located outside controlled airspace but clearances are given before startup as normal. Watch out though, the clearance format is fairly long, as it has to convey a lot of information an example is below: "London Control clears BEE315 to Guernsey via BHD N862. Join controlled airspace on track BHD climbing FL90, Squawk 7074," This needs to be read-back to the controller in full! On climbout you will be expected to request an Air Traffic Service Outside Controlled Airspace - if you fail to do so expect to be asked for what service you require.
Arrival flight plans should terminated at the EX NDB, however you will be descended outside controlled airspace and usually radar vectored before you reach the NDB. The exact arrival procedure is unique for each flight as it depends on other traffic in the area, however expect the following levels around these waypoints: FL90 at BHD - Arrival from South FL100 at EXMOR - Arrival from North/West FL100 at GIBSO - Arrival from East As you leave controlled airspace, you will be asked what type of Air Traffic Service you require outside controlled airspace.
Departures - As Exeter is only surrounded by an Air Traffic Zone, departing VFR is very expeditious. The controller will need to know your direction of flight after departure and then you will be instructed to turn left/right on departure in accordance. You may be asked to fly not above/below certain altitudes or adopt a specific routing for co-ordination purposes however this is an agreement between you and the controller and not an instruction. Arrivals - VFR Arrivals should make their initial call on the Radar frequency no later than 10 minutes from the ATZ boundary. Expect to position directly for a downwind/base join for the runway-in-use, standard overhead joins are not permitted. Published VRPs are available to allow you to plan your arrival.
