EBBE AD 2.10  Aerodrome Obstacles

1   SPECIFIC OBSTACLES
  1. To avoid pilots from coming in too low on RWY 04L, the portion of RWY in front of the threshold markings of RWY 04L is marked with yellow chevrons, thus indicating clearly to pilots not to touch before over the threshold markings. The portion marked with these yellow chevrons is nevertheless usable for ground movements of aircraft;
  2. Runway observer shelter 15 FT high, 50 M south of centreline abeam VFR THR 04R and VFR THR 22L.
2   OTHER OBSTACLES

No Area 2 or Area 3 obstacle data sets are currently provided for EBBE.

The RWY 04R/22L is mainly used for SF 260 ACFT operations of the 1 W. It may be used as auxiliary RWY for tactical ACFT for operational reasons when arresting system is installed.


The VFR operations of light ACFT on the RWY 04R/22L are limited to a portion of this RWY only. This portion is indicated by a VFR threshold, which is painted in a distinct design of checkers.

1   GENERAL
  • Military use only;
  • PPR 24 HR minimum;
  • Due to student flights, pilots are urged to use extreme caution when flying in the vicinity of EBBE;
  • An agreement for flying ACT outside MIL OPS HR has been given to a CIV club and to the Belgian Cadets. Para-gliding, delta plane, ultra-light glider and ULM activities may take place from the RWY 22R/04L and 22L/04R; and within a radius of 5 NM up to 2500 ft AMSL. Only members of the club are allowed to take off and land in EBBE. No foreign aircraft are allowed to land;
  • PAR limited to 1 console UHF and/or VHF.
2   TAXI REGULATIONS
  • Holding positions S1 and S7 towards RWY 22R/04L are situated at 150M from the RWY centreline due to the ILS critical area, indicated by (illuminated) ICAO panels;
  • Holding positions (except S1 and S7) are situated at 90M from the main and secondary RWY centrelines, indicated by (illuminated) ICAO panels;
  • TWY S5 closed for F-16 traffic;
  • Some visiting transport ACFT shall not taxi via TWY N1, N2, C1 and S8 due to insufficient TWY clearance. ACFT will be guided by Follow-me or other vehicle or detailed taxi instructions will be given by ATC.
