APPROACH AND LANDING

Narrator:Nigerian Airways Flight 267 departed Lagos, Nigeria at 1245Z (Greenwich Mean Time) enroute to Athinai (Athens), Greece on an IFR Flight Plan. Weather conditions on departure were VMC and no turbulence was expected during the flight. However, during his pre-flight weather briefing, the pilot had been informed by the forecaster, to expect reduced visibility on arrival at his destination. Flight 267 is now cruising at 35,000 ft. and is just passing over the Benina VOR Station. The pilot contacts the Tripoli area control centre.

Pilot: Tripoli Control, Nigerian two six seven, over Benina at one six two fower, flight level tree fife zero estimating Paleothora at one seven zero one, Athinai at one seven one eight. Request descent clearance.

Controller:Nigerian two six seven, Tripoli Control, roger, cleared to the Paleothora intersection, descend to and maintain flight level tree one zero. Hold over Paleothora at flight level tree one zero until further advised. Expect onward clearance at one seven one zero. Report leaving flight level tree fife zero. Present weather Athinai, ceiling indefinite, sky obscured, visibility five kilometres.

Pilot:Tripoli Control, Nigerian 267. Cleared to the Paleothora intersection, descend to flight level tree one zero. Hold over Paleothora intersection, at flight level tree one zero. Expect onward clearance at one seven one zero. We are leaving flight level tree fife zero now.

Controller:Nigerian two six seven, roger.


Narrator: Flight 267 can now begin descending from its cruising altitude of 35000 ft. to its present assigned altitude of 31,000 ft. but cannot go past the Paleothora intersection, which is about 260 nautical miles northeast of Benina, until it receives further clearance from Air Traffic Control. The Controller in the Tripoli ACC expects that further clearance will be available by 1710 Z. This means that Flight 267 may expect a ten minute delay in the holding pattern at Paleothora. This delay is due to restricted visibility at Athinai which is causing delays to aircraft arriving and departing. Flight 267 has now reached 31,000 ft. and reports to ACC as follows.

Pilot:Tripoli Control, Nigerian two six seven flight level tree one zero.

Controller: Roger. Nigerian two six seven, maintain flight level tree one zero. Contact Athinai Control on one two fower decimal fower.

Pilot:Nigerian two six seven, changing to Athinai Control on one two fower decimal fower.

Narrator:A considerable amount of coordination, between Air Traffic Services units, had been effected prior to the delivery of the above clearances to Flight 267. This coordination took place not only between the Tripoli and Athinai area control centres, but also with the Malta ACC. This coordination with Malta ACC was required because, while flying on the VOR airway between Benina and Paleothora, Flight 267 will fly over a small segment of the Malta FIR. The clearances given to Flight 267 are the result of coordination between these three Air Traffic Control units. It is now time for Flight 267 to contact Athinai ACC.



Pilot:Athinai Control Nigerian two six seven - flight level tree one zero estimating Paleothora at one seven zero one.

Controller: Nigerian two six seven, Athinai Control, roger. Now cleared to Athinai VOR, no delay expected. Descend to and maintain flight level one niner zero. Report over Paleothora.

Pilot:Athinai Control. Nigerian two six seven. Cleared to Athinai VOR, no delay expected, descend to and maintain flight level one niner zero.

Narrator:Good news for Flight 267! The flight will now be able to proceed directly to Athinai without executing a holding procedure over Paleothora. Having reached that intersection, the captain contacts Athinai Control once more.

Pilot:Athinai Control Nigerian two six seven. Over Paleothora on the hour descending to flight level one niner zero.

Controller: Nigerian two six seven. Athinai Control, roger. Contact Athinai Approach Control on one two two decimal one.

Narrator:Flight 267 will soon be entering the Athinai Approach Control area which extends to about fifty miles from the Athinai airport. In the Approach Control unit, controllers will be using modern automated radar systems which display, on the radar scopes, the aircraft's position, and the aircraft's identification for those aircraft equipped with transponders. With this information, the controller can provide the necessary separation between aircraft and maintain an expeditious flow of traffic which will minimize delays. Flight 267 as directed by Athinai now contacts the Approach Control unit.

Pilot:Athinai Approach, Nigerian 267, on one two two decimal one.

Controller:Nigerian 267, Athinai Approach.

Pilot:Nigerian 267 is over Paleothora on the hour, descending to flight level one niner zero, estimating Athinai at 17.

Controller:Nigerian 267, roger, now cleared to the Athinai VOR, via Milos One arrival, descend to and maintain flight level one tree zero, report passing flight level one fife zero.

Pilot:Nigerian 267 cleared to the Athinai VOR via Milos One arrival, descend to and maintain flight level one tree zero, report passing flight level one fife zero.

Narrator:Flight 267 is now cleared to the Athens VOR "via Milos One arrival". This is one of the approved arrival procedures which are published by the Aeronautical Information Service (AIS) and contained in the Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP) of Greece. Controllers and pilots are familiar with all these procedures for the airports they serve. Flight 267 is now at 15,000 feet, still descending, and now informs the approach control unit as requested.

Pilot:Athinai Approach, Nigerian two six seven, passing flight level one fife zero.

Controller:Nigerian 267, roger. Weather: sky obscured, visibility five kilometers in haze, wind two niner zero fife knots. Descend to and maintain altitude 5000 feet transition level seven zero, QNH one zero one fower.

Pilot:Athinai Control Nigerian two six seven, copied OK, descending to altitude 5000 feet QNH one zero one fower.


Narrator:The captain of Flight 267 now has all the information he requires for his landing at Athinai: the altimeter setting (1014) which he has now set on his altimeter; the runway in use (runway 33 right); the arrival procedure he will use (Milos One); the wind speed and direction (290 degrees at 5 knots). Although the visibility is only five kilometers, the weather will not pose any problems except that a visual approach will not be possible. The flight is now reaching 5000 feet and the pilot reports to ATC.

Pilot:Athinai Approach Control, Nigerian 267, now reaching fife tousand feet.

Controller:Nigerian 267, Athinai Approach, cleared for ILS approach runway tree tree right. Contact Athinai Tower on one one eight decimal one.

Pilot:Athinai Approach, Nigerian, cleared ILS runway tree tree right, changing to Tower one one eight decimal one.

Pilot:Athinai Tower, Nigerian 267 on one one eight decimal one.

Controller: Nigerian 267, Athinai Tower, runway tree tree right, wind two niner fife, six knots, QNH one zero one fower, continue ILS approach, report outer marker.

Pilot: Athinai Tower, Nigerian 267, QNH one zero one fower runway tree tree right, will report outer marker.

Narrator: A few minutes later.

Pilot: Athinai Tower, Nigerian 267, outer marker.

Controller: Nigerian 267, Athinai Tower, cleared to land.

Pilot: Athinai Tower, Nigerian 267, cleared to land.

Narrator:When the aircraft has landed, the tower controller will give Flight 267 his exact landing time and hand over the control to the ground controller who will provide the captain with taxi instructions to the apron where the flight from Lagos to Athens will come to an end.
