This separation may be applied under conditions approved by the ATS responsible body.

 

7.10.1.2 When crossing runways are used for departure and arrival, the arriving aircraft may be cleared to land when there is reasonable assurance that departing aircraft will cross the runway intersection before arriving aircraft will cross the runway threshold. Application of this separation has to be approved by appropriate ATS authority.

 

7.12.3 Procedures for low visibility operations shall be initiated by aerodrome control tower or approach control unit.

 

7.12.4 Suspension of local air traffic

 

Flight operations conducted in terms of local aerodrome traffic, both IFR and VFR, shall be suspended whenever safety or other reasons requires such action.

 

7.15.3.1 In addition to 7.15.2.1 approach lighting shall also be operated:

  1. by day when requested by an approaching aircraft,

  2. when the associated runway lighting is operated except take off.

 

Chapter 8

 

8.7.3.1.1 Aircraft utilizing reciprocal tracks may be cleared to climb or descent through the flight level occupied by other aircraft or to fly in the same flight level immediately after clear separation of the radar position indications.

Note: When using this separation, the term "reciprocal tracks" shall mean tracks, so that they are defined in the Chapter 5, provision 5.4.2.1.5, letter b.

 

8.7.3.1.2 Minimum horizontal separation based on use of radar and/or ADS-B and/or MLAT systems from a formation flight or between formation flights shall be 18,5 km (10 NM).

9.1.4 Air traffic advisory service

 

Provision of Air traffic advisory service is not applicable in the Slovak Republic.

 

9.2.1.2 In addition to the above, aircraft equipped with suitable two-way radiocommunications shall report every 10 minutes or within other time periods according to an ATS unit following the time of last contact, whatever the purpose of such contact, merely to indicate that the flight is progressing according to plan, such report to comprise identification of the aircraft and the words "OPERATIONS NORMALl" or the signal QRU.

 

Chapter 11

 

11.4.2.2.3.1 A DLA message shall be transmitted when the departure of an aircraft, for which basic flight plan data (FPL or RPL) has been sent, is delayed by more than:

  1. 15 minutes for controlled flight or

  2. 60 minutes for uncontrolled flight

 

after the estimated off-block time contained in the basic flight plan data.

 

11.4.2.3.2 Current flight plan (CPL) messages

 

CPL messages are not applicable in the Slovak Republic.

15.1.4.2 Action by the pilot-in-command

Note: Procedures in the following provisions are in compliance with Doc 7030 Regional Supplementary Procedures/EUR, Chapter 9, para. 9.1.

 

15.1.4.2.1 If in case of the aircraft carrying out a controlled flight a sudden decompression or other functional failure occurs, which causes emergency descent, if it is possible, the pilot-in-command shall proceed as follows:

  1. to make turn for leaving the flown track prior the start of emergency descent;

  2. to inform the air traffic control unit concerned of emergency descent as soon as possible;

  3. to set up the transponder code 7700 and select emergency mode in the automatic system ADS/CPDLC (if used);

  4. to switch on external lights;

  5. to observe surroundings to identify conflict traffic visually or by ACAS system (if the aircraft is equipped with it) and

  6. to coordinate next course of flight with the ATC unit concerned.

 

15.1.4.2.2 The aircraft shall not descend below the lowest advertised minimum altitude, which provides for the minimum height above all obstacles in the given airspace of 300 m (1 000 ft) or 600 m (2 000 ft) above mountain terrain.

 

15.1.4.3 Action by the ATS unit

 

15.1.4.3.1 Immediately upon receipt of advice that an aircraft is making an emergency descent, the air traffic control unit shall confirm emergency at appropriate frequency.

 

15.1.4.3.2 Depending up the situation, the unit may

  1. to propose the pilot-in-command of the emergency descending aircraft the heading to provide for separation from other aircraft (if the unit is able to do so);

  2. in case that the pilot-in-command has reported descent into the altitude lower that the minimum altitude, to inform him about the minimum altitude in the given airspace with QNH for the altimeter setting;

  3. to provide for separations from the conflict traffic as soon as possible, or transmit important information about the traffic (where applicable).

 

15.1.4.3.3 If necessary, the air traffic control unit shall transmit an emergency message or by other means provide for transmission of such message to other aircraft to advise them of emergency descent.

 

15.2 Special procedures for in-flight contingencies in oceanic airspace

 

This procedures are not applicable in the Slovak Republic.

 

Chapter 16

 

16.4.4.2.3 Whenever it is expected by the operator that a specific flight, for which an RPL has been submitted, is likely to encounter a delay of 15 minutes or more in excess of the off-block time stated in the flight plan, the ATS unit responsible for the departure aerodrome shall be notified immediately.

 

16.5 Strategic lateral offset procedures (SLOP) in oceanic and remote continental airspace

 

This procedures are not applicable in the Slovak Republic.
