In all other cases for operations in the TMZ outside the North Weald Area of Operation, the pilot must contact Farnborough North on 132.800 during operational hours (or Essex Radar on 120.625 at other times) well before reaching the TMZ boundary and negotiate TMZ transit. Once in contact with North Weald Radio, squawk 7010 with Mode C if available inbound and in the circuit. Outbound squawk 7000. QNH is now used in the circuit as standard.
  • Right base joins for Runway 02 and left base joins for Runway 20 into the established circuit pattern when the circuit is active and the carrying out of orbits in the circuit are not permitted. The standard circuit should be joined crosswind or downwind as appropriate, and if necessary the aircraft should go around if spacing is too tight.
  • Aircraft having to go around are to fly the runway heading and re-join the circuit at the appropriate height. Early left / right turns into the downwind leg are not permitted to allow sufficient height and speed to be gained to ensure maximum authority of flying controls.
