Circuits for runways 14/32 and 06/24 remain as they were before the runway improvement project started, with separate fixed wing and rotary circuit patterns. Please revisit the circuit diagrams for details.
For helicopter information, click here to view the circuit diagram.
For fixed wing information, click here to view the circuit diagram.
Please note runway 14L/32R and the corresponding circuits have been permanently withdrawn from use. This change will be included in the next AIP Amendment.
Caution should be exercised by fixed wing pilots departing off runway 14, not to turn crosswind too early as it will conflict with the helicopter circuit. Fixed wing circuits should be flown at 1200ft QFE and rotary circuits at 900ft QFE. Fixed wing should make an overhead join at 2000ft QFE.
Noise preferential routes
Strict adherence to the NPR is necessary to avoid overflying highly noise sensitive areas in the locality. Please refer to the procedures below to familiarise yourself with the noise routeings.
Runway 24 – Right Hand Circuit
Take off: Turn right as soon as practicable to do so and establish a Westerly track. Maintain track until West of built up areas. If remaining in the circuit, ensure that crosswind and downwind track is West/North West of Lavant village. No practice engine failures or low level circuits are permitted on runway 24. Avoid overflight of Lavant village. Avoid overflight of Lavant House Stables riding school.
Landing: No restrictions
Runway 06 – Left Hand Circuit
Take off: No restrictions
Landing: No low approaches over the built up areas in the undershoot. The threshold is displaced.
Runway 32 – Right Hand Circuit
Take off: Turn right 20º at the upwind end of the runway to avoid East Lavant village. Maintain that heading until well beyond the village. No practice engine failures after take-off until well beyond the village.
Landing: No restrictions. The threshold is displaced.
Runway 14 – Left Hand Circuit
Take off: Take-off: Turn left 10° at the upwind end of the runway to avoid overflying the school and houses under the climb out path. No practice engine failures after take-off until well clear of the school, stables and houses.
Landing: No low approaches over East Lavant village. The threshold is displaced.
Helicopters - Avoid routing over Chichester, Westerton, Westhampnett or Summersdale.
