  10. Taxiway Information

  11. Airfield Diagram

  12. Arm / De-arm • Located at Echo taxiway • Assume heading of 120-135°

  13. Rotary Wing Ground Traffic Taxiway Usage • November taxiway, preferred use is for outbound taxiing aircraft. • Mike taxiway, preferred use is for inbound taxiing aircraft and fuel pit transitioning. • Hotel taxiway, used for outbound aircraft, inbound aircraft, and pit transitioning. • Golf taxiway, preferred use is for F/W transition to November taxiway. • India taxiway, preferred use is for R/W pit transitioning into pits 4/5 and outbound taxiing aircraft. • Juliet taxiway, preferred use is for R/W transitioning to/from runway 14L landing area and pit transitioning.

  14. Inbound Outbound Rotary Wing Taxi Routes 14L

  15. Ground Procedures • If VFR, flight following is preferred • Clearance required NET 15 min prior to departure • VFR to R5306: Contact Departure Control prior to taxi with mission number for squawk • Do not transit through pits unless cleared

  16. ATIS (UHF 244.875 / VHF 127.475) • Report current ATIS code on initial contact • Advise if ATIS is unreadable

  17. Frequencies • Clearance Delivery 316.125 or 125.95 Request all IFR clearances from Clearance Delivery. If requesting to work in the W-122 area, call CD for a point A/B clearance and advise if VFR or IFR and give delay time in area. Contact CD for: - Tower En-route; if practice approaches involved, give delay time and intentions upon return. DD-175 required if landing at another airport. - OTP, Neuse ATCAA, GCA/TACAN pattern.

  18. Frequencies • Ground Control 239.025 or 128.625 • Tower 340.2 or 121.3 • Base Ops: 305.7or126.2 • Cherry Point METRO: 343.5 • Guard (Emergency) 243.0 or 121.5

  19. Ground Procedures • Ensure your flight is joined and in the appropriate warm-up area prior to calling Tower for departure. Calling while part of your flight is still on your line delays other aircraft waiting for departure. • Make any special departure requests to Tower. Remain on the Tower frequency until clear of the Class D airspace or instructed to change. • Off-duty runways are available for VFR departures.

  20. Departure Procedures • RW 32R and 23L Takeoff Position - Long position: Runway numbers • Short position: Nose wheel on the seam of asphalt and concrete • RW 5L and 14R - Long position: First yellow arrow (displaced threshold) - Short position: Nose wheel on the seam of asphalt and concrete

  21. Departure Procedures • All tactical jet aircraft will depart from the concrete portion of the center-mat with the exception of multiple ship AV8 departures • VFR Departures - Maintain 500’ or less until clear of VFR traffic pattern - Avoid rifle range, Crash Crew, radar site, industrial complex, staff or officer housing

  22. Traffic Patterns • Pattern alt is 1000’, standard left traffic - 32L is right traffic • Overhead - Arrive at the initial at 2100’ - Descend to 1500’ inside initial for break - 1000’ on downwind

  23. Traffic Patterns 6 NM NKT 061/6 Tower calls break Expect approach end 5R midfield 6 NM 6 NM Speed < 250 unless required

  24. Traffic Patterns • VFR Straight in - Notify Approach outside 20 nm - Arrive 5 nm inbound at 1000’ - Report gear at 3 nm • Runway Selection - 32L is instrument/calm wind runway - 5R will not be duty unless >10 kt sustained winds • Delta pattern = 2000’

  25. R/W PATTERN vs. F/W PATTERN • Helicopter tower pattern altitude is 500’. • Helo operations, when duty RWY 14, are at the Tower Supervisors discretion. • Patterns for RWY 23 and RWY 14 are wider to avoid over flying CFR and rifle range. • First choice place for helicopter tower pattern operations is on an off-duty runway. If the crosswind prevents that from happening and they have to be conducted on the duty runway, the following slides show the downwind pattern de-conflicting with fixed wing traffic:

  30. Off-Duty Runway Helicopter Pattern Characteristics • Helicopter will land and depart away from the centermat. • Base shall be turned prior to the 3000 foot remaining board (to keep away from the centermat traffic). • Left or right downwind will be at the discretion of the Tower Supervisor. • Be advised on our off-duty runways and the departing runway our E-28 arresting gear will be in battery.

  31. Off-Duty RWY HelicopterPattern Example

  32. VFR Entry/Exit Routes 3 VFR Helicopter Arrival / Departure Routes (Beard Creek, Great Lake, Clubfoot Creek) Max Airspeed 150 KIAS Inbound Altitude 500’ MSL Outbound Altitude 700’MSL • 2 way radio communications shall be established prior to entering Class D • Entry should be made via Local VFR entry/exit routes unless otherwise coordinated with ATC

  33. VFR Entry/Exit Routes

  34. VFR Entry/Exit Routes • Beard Creek Route Outbound: To Golf Course (NKT 354/2.5) Then to Beard Creek (NKT 012/6.2)* Inbound: Report Beard Creek Inbound for instructions into CDSA and traffic pattern *Report Clear of Delta Surface Area (CDSA)

  38. VFR Entry/Exit Routes • Great Lake Route Outbound: To Slocum Creek Bridge (NKT 280/2.1) Then to Great Lake (NKT 273/7.0)* Inbound: The Inbound is the Opposite *Report Clear of Delta Surface Area (CDSA)

  42. VFR Entry/Exit Routes • Clubfoot Creek Route Outbound: To Hancock Island (NKT 085/1.8) Then to Clubfoot Creek (NKT 098/5.2)* Inbound: The Inbound is the Opposite *Report Clear of Delta Surface Area (CDSA)

  45. VFR Entry/Exit Routes

  46. SVFR Requirements • SVFR operations are authorized for fixed wing aircraft. • SVFR operations are authorized for rotary wing aircraft. • Minimum ceiling /visibility authorized for SVFR operations is 500/1 NM and aircraft must be able to remain clear of clouds within the Class D surface area.

  47. SVFR Requirements • SVFR Clearance from ATC required • All 3 VFR Helicopter routes are authorized for SVFR flight: • Beard Creek • Great Lake • Clubfoot Creek • Pilot shall initiate request for SVFR flight and pilots shall report both reporting points either inbound or outbound. • During SVFR only 1 aircraft is authorized within the CDSA.

  48. Noise Abatement • Overheads, T&G’s, and low approaches 0700-2300L • High Powers - 0700-2200L Mon-Sat - 1300-2200L Sun - Do not exceed 80% in the line/warmup areas *High powers not authorized on RWY 5L or 14R except for departing aircraft

  49. Noise Abatement • Noise Sensitive Areas (<pattern alt) - MCAS industrial complex - Densely populated areas - Crash Crew - Rifle Range - Havelock - Minnesott Beach - Cedar Island Ferry Terminal & ferry
