Bamberg EDQA to get IFR procedures,RgClDU5

In German only. Anyway, looks like EDQA will get IFR procedures (GPS, of course) possibly as soon as spring next year. This was mostly driven by a couple of companies based there.

For your info; Bamberg is one of the most beautiful mid-size cities of Germany. Very well worth a visit or two.

Along with Nürnberg, Hassfurt, Bayreuth and Coburg, that will make this part of Germany be very well served with IFR airfields. I wish that were the case for the Frankfurt area…

Well, as always, it took a little longer, but now, it‘s done. Bamberg (EDQA) is now IFR.
Bamberg is one of the prettiest mid-size cities in Germany, well worth a visit.
While the airport is strictly speaking PPR, instrument approaches don‘t require any additional PPR.
Minima a little high, but I guess that is due to obstacles and runway limitations, etc.

So technically one doesn’t need the pay-for German VFR charts to get there, but one will be charged nav fees, correct?

Well, I guess that if one firmly plans to fly in and out IFR, one can’t be obliged to carry visual approach charts.

This not being a primary airport, there are no DFS charges for instrument approaches. The airport might charge extra for an instrument approach though, as most of the small GA-only IFR airfields in Germany do.

Well, I do need my 50h on I flight plans ;-)

Fly-in, anyone?

EPKP - Kraków, Poland

I wanted to land there last winter to take delivery of a car at a dealership close to the airport but runway was closed…
To bad. For the next one…

GFS is rather negative in the Luxembourg area this weekend :-[


When I posted the news, I missed a NOTAM :-(

Reason I missed it: this NOTAM (and another one for EDQA) seems to be missing in Skydemon, @Rob_Hart.

Eurocontrol has got it. This is from the EuroGA airport database

That’s a long suspension. I wonder what happened. Nothing published in Flitestar

Which flight rules have you used? Unless it is set to IFR or MIXED, you might not see all of those…
