EBCI does not have an Approach controller, this means all departures and arrivals will be handled by Brussels Approach when traffic is not within the responsibility area of Charleroi Tower.

This means that if Charleroi Tower or Ground are not online the pilot should contact Brussels Approach or Brussels Control, in that order of appearance online, for departure out of and arrival into Charleroi.

In real life Charleroi Tower vectors aircraft below FL055. You can simulate this on IVAO if you want but only after proper coordination with Brussels Control and/or Brussels Approach.

You should hold at least an ADC rating before doing so.



In this section you can find several documents which can help you during your controller sessions such as Quickviews, Airport Procedures and vectoring guidelines.
