Airport Strategies


Recommended Posts

EGKK

This airport operates as a single runway airport, utilising Runway 08R/26L as its operational runway and Runway 08L/26R as a taxiway. This can lead to departing aircraft becoming backed up, with spaces between arrivals being too and far between. The runway is set to the south of all of the terminals, meaning that taxiways pushing back aircraft must be will timed and you must remain visual at all times for crossing traffic.

All is not lost though, as there are ways to placate traffic during exceptionally busy periods.

Active Runway: 08R

Arriving 
Pier 4 to Taxiway P/Pier 5/Pier 6/East Stands on Taxiway L S arrivals

Landing aircraft that require gates in these areas should exit at Taxiway D, they should then be given taxi instructions to the Terminal via R.
For example: Aircraft taxiing to gates under Air Bridge "Taxi to Terminal via R L"

Pier 2 on Taxiway K/ Pier 3/ Pier 4 from Taxiway P toward Pier 3 arrivals
Landing aircraft that require gates in these areas should exit at Taxiway CR, they should then be given taxi instructions to the Terminal via C J plus the relevant taxiway that their gate is one. For example: Aircraft taxiing to gates at the top right terminal "Taxi to Terminal via C J L"

Pier 2 on Taxiway J/Pier 1 arrivals
Landing aircraft that require gates in these areas should exit at Taxiway CR, they should then be given taxi instructions to the Terminal via J or Z

Routing aircraft for arrivals in this manner will allow for a flowing system and free up taxiways for departures.

Departing
Pier 4 to Taxiway P/Pier 5/ Pier 6/East Stands on Taxiway L S departures
Departing aircraft should expect Runway 08R, then routed down Taxiway Q where they can be held short of Taxiway J for arriving aircraft crossing from Taxiway D on to Taxiway R.

Aircraft such as A319/A320/B737 should be routed to Runway 08R at G via Q ZZ
Aircraft such as B757/B747/A380 should be routed to Runway 08R via Q J

Note: During especially busy times, it may benefit you to also send some small aircraft to join at Taxiway J to prevent long queues on the taxiways, providing the opportunity during a large enough space in between arrivals to request two aircraft to 'Line up and wait' in quick succession, with consecutive take off's.

Pier 2 on Taxiway K/ Pier 3/ Pier 4 from Taxiway P toward Pier 3 arrivals
Departing aircraft should expect Runway 08R, then routed down Taxiway N. 

Aircraft such as A319/A320/B737 should be routed to Runway 08R at G via N AN ZZ
Aircraft such as B757/B747/A380 should be routed to Runway 08R via N J

For aircraft requiring Runway 08R via J, they should be held short of Taxiway J for arriving aircraft taxiing to the terminal.
For aircraft requiring Runway 08R at G via AN ZZ, should be held short of Taxiway C to allow for arriving aircraft to cross from Taxiway CR

 

Quiet Periods

During quiet periods, Aircraft from the East side can be routed via L Q or via K Q; with inbound aircraft exiting the runway at Taxiway D and being routed via R K or via R L, being held short of respective taxiways for other moving aircraft.

 

I will cover 26L arrivals/departures at a later date.

If you are into VATSIM procedures, here's a more current version: https://nyartcc.org/znywiki/index.php/LGA_SOP

JFK and PHL are available on the same site.

 

What's your opinion on the vatsim procedures, Craig?
Back in the day I used to do virtual controlling quite a bit, and they seemed to be quite authentic.

No real opinion. From a tower/airport perspective they seem authentic to me. From a Tracon perspective it seems like they combine a lot of positions so I've had a tougher time in matching real world frequencies and procedures.

@Luis3019 What update do you mean? I don't know about any update, at least not for the base game.
But with a modified tower3d.rec it is possible to use runways.
With the file you find in the marked post, you can use one runway as an additional taxiway for departures and arrivals. For departures it has to be in second position in the taxi instruction, for arrivals it can be in any position.
