General

  • Listen to the instructions carefully! If you missed something or did not understand a radio call, don’t hesitate to ask!
  • Expect early hand-offs, especially on the ground. Continue to the respective clearance limit and contact the next controller on your way. Do not stop just because you are instructed to change the frequency!
  • The preferred runways for take-off and landing are runways 26L and 26R, up to a tailwind component of 5 kts.
  • All in one charts package can be downloaded at https://nav.vatsim-germany.org/files/edmm/charts/eddm/public/EDDM_AIO.zip


Airport Overview

Parking

Overview Ground Layout

Now we want to give you an idea about how the real Munich airport operates. This includes an overview about which major airline is parked at which gates or stands. You can use the listings in the following table (or the at the end) to add more realism to the simulation. Of course, you are still free to pick a different stand of your choice.

Notes: Module F is being used for all flights with increased security demands, regardless of the operator (e.g. state flights). Due to a lot of real world changes regarding scenery layout and airlines, this list is still work in progres. Prudent airlines are still kept in the list to give an advice.

Terminal 2

Terminal 2 and the remote stands at and around Apron 3 are being used exclusively by Lufthansa and Star Alliance as well as other Lufthansa partner airlines. Most Lufthansa and Star Alliance wide-body aircraft are parked directly at the terminal, whereas medium-sized planes like the A320 are intermixed with the wide-bodies or parked at stands 243-256 at the satellite terminal.

Cargo

Our cargo terminal is located to the south. The parking positions available are 901-907, with all of them being usable by wide-body aircraft. Usually to prevent long taxi times all cargo traffic should expect to depart from runway 08R/26L.

General Aviation

Parking for General Aviation is located on apron 13 (positions G11 - G26) or on aprons 7 and 8 (positions 701 - 703, 801 - 905).

Departure

Delivery

After your initial call the Delivery controller will give you the start-up clearance and an en-route clearance, including a specific Standard Instrument Departure route (SID) and the transponder code (squawk) and initial cleared altitude (FL070). Each SID designator refers to exactly one runway, as depicted on the charts. If you are unable to follow a SID, inform the controller and expect vectors for your departure. Listen carefully to Delivery for the Apron frequency you need to use next.

Apron

Contact the Apron controller for push-back, as the clearance given to you by Delivery only authorizes you for start-up. Use the frequency given to you by Delivery, do not rely on login names! Never push back without clearance! Ensure that you push back in the proper direction (e. g. „facing north“, „facing south“, „straight back“) and listen for instruction which color of the taxiway line to use. Apron’s area of responsibility ends when you reach the „bridges” or, as we call them, „entries”. Therefore, expect your taxi clearance to be issued in two parts, one clearance to the entry, one from the entry to the runway. Without further clearance you have to hold at the entry point. „DLH123 taxi to entry N4 via W2 and D1.”

Ground

„München Ground” will guide you from the entries to the runway. Expect intersection take offs if you fly a small plane. If you want to shorten taxi time and are willing to accept a shorter runway length for departure, you can always request an intersection departure on this frequency regardless of your aircraft size. The hand-off from Ground to Tower usually works a little different than at other airports. Most of the time ground will advise you to „Standby for Tower” on a specific frequency. In this special case you do not have to contact Tower, just tune to the frequency and listen closely - Tower will call you when it’s your turn.

Tower

As stated in the charts remain on the Tower frequency until further advised.

Departure

As stated on the charts the initial climb altitude out of Munich is FL70, with a transition altitude of 5000 feet.

Arrival

Fly to the clearance limit corresponding with your direction of flight, which will be BETOS, NAPSA, LANDU or ROKIL. Expect RNAV transitions! Tell the approach controller immediately if your aircraft is not equipped for the transitions. If your aircraft is equipped with an FMC please check also chapter 5.3 regarding the peculiarities of entering the RNAV transitions.

Director

If Director is online, you will have to contact him with your call sign only. „München Director, Lufthansa 123”

Tower

Tower will give you the landing clearance. If no ground controller is online Tower will also give you taxi instructions to the apron entry (N1-4 or S1-8).

Ground

The ground controller will guide you from the runway to the apron entry (N1-4 or S1-8) via taxi instructions. Without further clearance you have to hold at the entry point. „DLH123 taxi to entry N4 via A6 and N.”

Apron

The apron controller will guide you to your parking position (see tables 1 and 2). If you want a different parking position, feel free to request it.


Miscellaneous

AFV - Audio for VATSIM

Since the introduction of AFV, it is possible to use multiple frequencies as a single controller. Therefore it is of utmost importance to listen carefully for the frequency a controller is telling you.

ILS frequencies

Due to some major changes since AIRAC 1011, some ILS and other navaid frequencies have been changed. Most notably the ILS approaches to runways 08L (IMNE 109.50MHz) and 08R (IMSE 109.30MHz) create problems with aircraft having tuned their receivers to the wrong frequencies. Please tune the frequencies according to your scenery.

FMC operation

The FMCs of most, if not all, aircraft, even payware add-ons, do not correctly handle the RNAV transitions when approaching EDDM. All RNAV transition start at the next-to-last way point of a STAR. The FMC, however, just appends the transition to the last way point of the STAR. So the FMC guides you to the last way point of the STAR (MIQ NDB or OTT VOR) and back to the previous waypoint, then along the transition. To avoid that, after having entered the STAR and transition in the FMC, the pilot has to compare the way point list in the FMC with the published arrival charts (see chapter 1) and remove unnecessary way points (usually the endpoints of the STAR). How to do that should be detailed in the manual of your aircraft or add-on FMC.
