Tbilisi Approach
Frequency: 134.6
TMA: FL115

Transition Altitude: 7600ft
Transition Level: FL090

Departures are going to DF, LAMUS and LAGAS from both Runways and require a climb gradient up to 6.0%. Furthermore, departures has to be carry out with company noise abatement procedures. Recommended are NADP 1 or 2 procedures.

Climb clearance is to final cruise level after Aircraft is received from Tower and should be transferred to UGGG_CTR when passing FL110.

UGGG_CTR should clear inbound traffic according to MEA requirements down to FL090. Aircraft should be transferred to UGTB_APP  at least 1000ft before reaching this level.

13R Arrivals will be carried out via BAGEM, DF, LAMUS Arrivals with a speed limit of 220KIAS.
31L Arrivals will be carried out via BAGEM, DF, LAMUS, OBORA Arrivals without a special speed limit, expect the usual speed limit of 250KIAS below FL100.

All Arrivals end overhead TBS VOR. Approach Controllers may choose to pick the Aircraft up for a smooth Vectoring to final. Please respect Radar Mnm Alts, refer to Jepessen Chart 10-1R.

There is a little vectoring special for our superprofessionals (but not mandatory). Inbound trafic for 13R get a direct DF to be levelled FL090 overhead DF. After that they get a clearance for the ILS with the published altitude profile.
For 31L pilots get a direct D151M (If they are able to do so) and after that a vectoring for the ILS.

Remember: Low speed and and long final are pilots and controllers friend.
Don’t vector to tight, don’t rush the approach! That will usually end up in a go-around!

If no Approach Controller is online, UGGG_CTR is responsible servicing the lower Sectors, e.g. Approach and Tower.

This is a game and not “we are pushing the limits”. If you feel uncomfortable or overwhelmed, you may transfer traffic to Unicom, even if you are responsible for lower Sector because nobody is online there. But you are always responsible for the traffic in your Sector! Sending your own sector traffic to Unicom should be strictly avoided!
That might be a rare situation, because we don’t have so much traffic and of course that should be an exception in order to provide the best service we can.
