Noise abatement departure procedure

NADP 1 shall apply with ICAO NADP 1 until passing 3000' during departures out of RWY 27. Asap at 600', turn right on heading for departure. Deviations of the above only permitted for safety reasons.

Avoid overflying of Iraklion City. Rapid changes in engine power should be avoided unless flight reasons render them imperative.

Engine Out Departure Procedure

In all cases: inform ATC and land asap.

LT HDG 360, climb and maintain 5000′

RT HDG 360, climb and maintain 5000′

Weather Information

Expect windshear on short final RWY 27 when calm surface wind associated with north-west to north wind at 2000'.

Exercises extreme caution as seasonal strong south-southeasterly winds of more than 20kts prevail over and in vicinity of the airport. When these winds prevail, the following phenomena are observed affecting seriously the flight safety:

  • Servere turbulence during final approach, in take-off and initial climb-out areas as well as along RWY 09/27
  • Wind direction varies from 150°-190° at the beginning of RWY 27 and from 170°-210° at the beginning of RWY 09
  • The south-southeasterly winds at their initial appearance are gusty.

Pilots are pleased to report these phenomena to ATC for following traffic.

Miscellaneous

  • Reverse thrust not more than idle reverse except if required for safety or operational reasons
  • Avoid crossing final approach track unless instructed by ATC due to mountainous area
  • During initial climb remain in visual contact with terrain and maintain own terrain separation until passing 2000'
