KHA Procedures Approaching and Departing
The reclassification of the Low Level Route to Class D has meant some changes to Kenyon Hall operations are needed in order to prevent inadvertent infringements, please refer to NATS low Level Corridor Document
After discussion with Manchester ATC we have agreed the following procedures:
Approach to Kenyon Hall Airfield
Monitor the Manchester Approach frequency and squawk 7366. Overhead the airfield descend to circuit altitude (800 ft on Manchester QNH) and make a blind call on Safetycom 135.480 MHz. Remain on Safetycom for downwind and final, still squawking 7366
Departure from Kenyon Hall Airfield
While on the ground make a blind call on Safetycom 135.480 MHz then as soon as is practical change to Manchester Approach frequency and squawk 7366.
Please note that to avoid conflict with other airspace users right base joins are prohibited for both 23 and 05
Join on left base for 23 or left base for 05 at 800’ on the Manchester QNH announcing your intentions on SAFETYCOM 135.480MHz. No overhead joins or local flying, circuits not permitted. No PFLs, low flying or go arounds, other than to check status and condition of runway. Caution: curl over from trees with northerly winds and crops which are grown up to runway edges. Avoid overflying nearby village to the North of the strip and Kenyon Hall Farm microlight strip to the south.
On departure from 23 climb straight ahead until over the motorway before turning on track.
On departure from 05 avoid overflying Golborne and Culcheth. Pilots should keep a very good lookout for aircraft entering or exiting the Manchester low level route.
In the event of a missed approach on 23 pilots should turn right as soon as it is safe to do so and route around Golborne, then between Golborne and Culcheth to rejoin on long final 23 avoiding overflying the houses nearby.
In the event of a missed approach on 05 pilots should turn left as soon as it is safe to do so and route around Golborne to rejoin on left base 05 avoiding overflying the houses nearby.
