    ATC Clearance

    There is no SID at Zielona Gora, so expect to be given nonstandard deaprture procedure or proceeding with own navigation. 

    EPZG_TWR is the clearance delivery station for Zielona Gora Airport. To get your IFR clearance, contact Zielona Gora Tower not more than 30 minutes before Off Block Time only with your callsign and destination. Your clearance will contain: runway, assigned SID or other departure instructions, the initial climb, your squawk code and current weather information.

    Please remember that currently we do not serve DCL/PDC clearance. 

    Taxi procedures There are only two taxiways leading to runway - on its ends. There is no "rapid-exit" taxiways.
    Low Visibility Procedures (LVP)

    There are no LVP procedures at Zielona Gora.

    Minimum RVR for take-offs and landings is 550 m.


    There are two stands located near the terminal, on APN 3 - STD 1, 2.

    APN 1 is located on the other side of runway - near RWY 24 threshold and it is used for bigger cargo aircrafts

    Start-up, pushback and taxi

    There is no pushback required at any stand.

    Start-up and pushback

    Zielona Gora Tower is responsible for all start-up and taxi.


    Before requesting taxi prepare taxi charts for the aerodrome. This is very helpful for both pilots and controllers. 

    When RWY 24 is in use, be prepared to perform backtrack.

    Take-off and departure  Prior to your departure, you should double check your FMC and the transponder: make sure you have the correct SID, your squawk code set and the transponder operating in Mode C. Be ready for departure upon reaching the holding point. In order to keep runway occupancy to a minimum, expect to receive an immediate takeoff clearance. ATC will assume every aircraft at the holding point is able to commence line up and take-off roll after clearance issued with no delay. If you are unable to comply with it, inform Zielona Gora Tower before being number 1 in departure sequence.

    It is very important to strictly adhere to your SID and initial climb until given further instructions! When contacting the new controller, you should listen for other traffic talking on frequency to not interrupt them.

    Arrival procedures

    Entry to TMA Zielona Gora shall be planned via one of the following entry fixes: BAREP, OBOLA.

    Expect being assigned the correct STAR. As with SIDs, RNAV equipment is required.

    If you are unable to follow the procedure, put it in your flight plan and inform the ACC controller on initial contact. You will be assigned non RNP STAR.

    The STARs only define the horizontal flight profile. Every level change (descent) has to be explicitly instructed by the ATC.

    After being issued the approach clearance, the STAR shall be continued until established on final.

    When traffic load permits, you may expect a shortcut to one of the points of the procedure.

    TMA Zielona Gora is a procedural airspace, which means that controller doesn't have a radar and won't be able to see you. To provide ATC service, pilots will be asked for position reports. This report should contain current altitude and distance to next waypoint. You can also provide information about your indicated airspeed (IAS).

    Final approach



    RWY 06: RNP, VOR

    During final approach it is advised to maintain speed of 160 kts or greater (if possible) until 4 NM DME. ATC may impose other speed restrictions.

    Runways 06 and 24 are not equipped with rapid-exit taxiways. When landing runway 06 you must perform backtrack.

    Make sure to fully vacate the runway (cross the holding point) but hold short of the next taxiway in front of you. Remain on Tower frequency until further advised.

  • Procedures

    VFR flights in CTR ZIELONA GORA/Babimost are required to have a flight plan.

    Constant (cruising) altitude and pattern altitude for VFR flights in CTR EPZG is 1000 ft. It is caused by dense buildings and high obstacles surrounding the airport. Flights shall not take place below that altitude. Flight above that altitude require coordination with APP or ACC controller (if online).

    Descent below 1000 ft is permitted only in close vicinity of the airport, during published holding procedures over VFR reporting points, approaches and runway operations.

    During high traffic load, aircraft in VFR flight may be instructed to hold on one of the published holdings:

    - on the north side of the aerodrome NOVEMBER

    - on the south side of the aerodrome SIERRA


    CTR ZIELONA GORA/Babimost is class D airspace.
