FABB is situated inside the FAJS CTR and some

special rules apply

From the South - Visual Flight Rules

(VFR)

Enter the buffer zone at or below 6000’ on FAJS QNH

Call FAJS information on 119,5 MHz overhead ERGO slimes dam:

S 26 21,1   E 028 19,9

Call FABB traffic on 122,7

Join overhead at or below 6000’ turn East and join left hand

downwind for runway 18 (remain South of the Benoni Brakpan

railway line) or right hand downwind for runway 36

From the East

Enter the buffer zone at or below 6000’ on FAJS QNH

Call FAJS information on 119,5 MHz overhead Jan Smuts dam S

26 13,4   E 028 22,0

Call FABB traffic on 122,7

If the runway in use can be determined by means of radio

communication join left hand downwind for runway 18  (remain

South of the Benoni Brakpan railway line) or right hand

downwind for runway 36.

If the runway in use can not be determined by means of radio

communication then join overhead at or below 6000’ to check

the wind direction, turn back East immediately without going to

the West of the airfield and join left hand downwind for runway

18  (remain South of the Benoni Brakpan railway line) or right

hand downwind for runway 36.

Departure

Squawk 2000 mode C

Depart via Jan Smuts dam to the East or ERGO slimes dam to

the South.

Call FAJS information on 119,5 MHz once clear of the circuit.

Remain at or below 6000’ until clear of the buffer zone.

Once clear of the buffer zone VFR go 125,4 MHz (Below FAJS TMA

East) or on an IFR flight plan go 124,5 MHz (FAJS approach S&E)

Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) FLIGHTS AT FABB: Departing 1. File your flight plan at ATNS (011 928 6517); 2. Prior to startup call Approach Filter (011 928-6455) for a squawk; 3. Depart the field as per flight plan. Departing the ATZ call Radar (124.5) who will give your routing and climb clearance. Arrival 1. ATC will clear you down to 8000 ft. 2. If you have broken cloud, call them FABB in sight and continue 122.7. 3. If you have not broken cloud then you have 2 alternatives: A. Request the FAOR ILS and once broken cloud continue low level around for a landing at FABB. B. Divert to FALA, fly the ILS, break cloud and continue low level for a landing at FABB. Or land and reposition aircraft to FABB when weather improves. 4. Dont forget to cancel your search and rescue.
