TMZ with COM channel monitoring under Schiphol TMA 1
From Thursday, July 13, 2023, through Thursday, March 21, 2024, a transponder mandatory zone (TMZ) with frequency monitoring obligation will be set under Schiphol TMA 1.
Within this TMZ, as a pilot, you must enter transponder code 7020. You also continuously monitor Amsterdam Information frequency 124,300 MHz.
On this frequency, the FIC (Flight Information Centre) provides information about traffic in the area to enable a safe flight. In addition, the controllers of the FIC can intervene if a VFR flight enters or threatens to enter a controlled area without permission.
Direct contact between the pilot and the FIC helps prevent airspace violations so that we can make the airspace safer together.
