This section details procedures for inter-area VFR traffic.

Flights from Bucharest ACC to Sofia ACC

VFR traffic flying outside published ATS routes, and which has established radio communication with Bucharest ACC, shall enter Sofia FIR over at 1000FT height AGL or above. Note: Point OSTOV is strictly forbidden for all traffic below FL 175 due to prohibited areas. After passing TMA Bucharest, VFR flights to be advised to climb at least 7500ft but not more FL090 due to IFR traffics.

Flights from Bucharest ACC to Sofia ACC

VFR traffic flying with destination LROP or LRBS, and which has established radio communication with Sofia ACC, shall enter Bucharest FIR at maximum 2000FT height AGL.

General

The following limited information shall be exchanged between the two ACCs with regard to VFR flights:

  1. VFR;
  2. Departure and Destination airports;
  3. COP;
  4. Other information, if necessary

For a group of VFR flights, the precise number of aircraft shall be emphasized as well as the callsign of the group leader. Exchange of available data for VFR flights shall be transferred at least 20 (twenty) minutes prior to the time when the aircraft is estimated to pass the common FIR boundary. A revision, if available, shall be forwarded whenever flight data have changed and/or the estimate varies by 5 (five) minutes or more.

Transfer of Radar Control
