QRA? Sabes o que é?

Algo que necessita de treino, de ter um asa fantástico e um líder capaz de pegar numa missão e como equipa vercer esse desafio.

Pegar nas suas garras, os olhos no alvo e os ouvidos atentos a todas as comunicações… depois… ser o caçador e ter o alvo nas nossas mãos.

O brief deste exercício é o seguinte:

Quick Reaction Alert (QRA), A state of readiness that many air forces around the world maintain, allowing them to respond to any possible air threat within their area of responsibility. But with current safety levels of modern aviation, means that QRA pilots are commonly scrambling to unresponsive aircraft or aircraft in distress. The UK currently operates 2 QRA bases, RAF Coningsby to the south and RAF Lossiemouth to the north.

The United Kingdom and Ireland, Special operations department, would like to invite you to Exercise Blackdog. The operation will allow you to utilise and develop the essential skills of QRA, which include interception, identification and air to air refuelling.

Introduction

This document has been created as a guide to military phraseology when flying in the UK airspace on IVAO.

The guide will cover the basic phraseology used by ATC and pilot from start up through to landing both for IFR and VFR.

This guide is by no way meant to be fully comprehensive but should allow a pilot and ATC to be able to learn the minimum required phraseology for military flight within the UK.


Start Up

There is a difference between military and civilian right at the start. You would normally receive your clearance whilst taxiing rather than on the apron. You will also generally be positioned without need for push back but if required you can request this.

PILOT ATC
BRIZE GROUND. ASCOT 3517 REQUEST START ASCOT 3517 START, RUNWAY 26, QFE 1013 OUTSIDE AIR PLUS 2, SURFACE WIND 260 AT 3 KNOTS, REQUEST POB
START RUNWAY 26, QFE 1013, 5 POB, ASCOT 3517

Taxi

PILOT ATC
BRIZE GROUND. ASCOT 3517 REQUEST TAXI ASCOT 3517 TAXI FOR RUNWAY 26, VIA ECHO, QFE 1013
TAXI FOR RUNWAY 26, VIA ECHO, 1013 SET, ASCOT 3517

IFR Clearance

As described earlier generally the clearance will given while the aircraft is taxiing.

PILOT ATC
ASCOT 3517 HAVE YOUR CLEARANCE
ASCOT 3517 GO AHEAD ASCOT 3517 CLEARED TO ENTER CAS AT DAVENTRY, FLIGHT LEVEL 80, SQUAWK 2256
CLEARED TO ENTER CASAT DAVENTRY, FLIGHT LEVEL 80, SQUAWK 2256,ASCOT 3517

VFR Clearance

For VFR climb out details are given rather than an actual clearance.

PILOT ATC
ASCOT 3517 GLOUCESTER QNH 1013 TRANSITION LEVEL 60, REQUEST CLIMB OUT DETAILS
DETAILS COPIED, REQUEST (this can vary. You state your intentions at this point),ASCOT 3517 ASCOT 3517 ROGER, REPORT AT THE HOLD AND READY FOR DEPARTURE.
ASCOT 3517

Take Off

PILOT ATC
BRIZE NORTON TOWER ASCOT 3517 FULLY READY FOR DEPARTURE ASCOT 3517 CLEAR FOR TAKE OFF, SURFACE WIND 230 DEGREES 2 KNOTS
CLEAR FOR TAKE OFF RUNWAY 26, ASCOT 3517
ASCOT 3517 AIRBORNE (this is to be called at 500ft)

Joining the Circuit

The visual circuit will be left handed unless otherwise specified.

The military circuit is an oval shaped circuit and differs from the normal civilian one. Civilian traffic at a military airfield would generally be expected to carry out a standard overhead join but they may also fly the military circuit but it is advised this is practised beforehand as it is not so easy to fly accurately.

Phraseology

From 3-5 mins from the airport

PILOT ATC
BRIZE NORTON TOWER, ASCOT 3517, 10 MILES WEST, REQUEST INITIAL FOR RUNWAY 26, INFORMATION ZULU ASCOT 3517 BRIZE NORTON TOWER,
JOIN RUNWAY 26,QFE 1015, 2 IN (MEANS JOIN THE CIRCUIT AND 2 AIRCRAFT ARE IN THE CIRCUIT)
JOIN RUNWAY 26, QFE 1015, ASCOT 3517

At initial point

PILOT ATC
ASCOT 3517, INITIAL (FOR THE BREAK – CALLED IF PERFORMING A RUN AND BREAK) ASCOT 3517, ONE UPWIND, ONE DOWNWIND

On the break

PILOT ATC
ASCOT 3517, ON THE BREAK TO LAND/ TOUCH AND GO / LOW APPROACH ASCOT 3517, ONE AHEAD, SURFACE WIND XX

If not performing a break report downwind instead of on the break.

Final

PILOT ATC
FINAL, GEAR DOWN, ASCOT 3517 ASCOT 3517 CLEARED TO LAND/ TOUCH AND GO/ LOW APPROACH

Note: if the pilot does not report gear down ATC will request “check gear down” and the pilot must confirm “gear down” before landing clearance is given.


Approach (ILS Recovery)

PILOT ATC
