1. Landing fees / Airport usage fee

  1. General information

For the landing of aircraft, the pilot or, as a consequence, the operator of the aircraft, must pay a fee (landing fee) in accordance with these regulations.

The landing fees are divided into different levels such as:  – Day tariff – night tariff – school tariff In addition, there is a division according to aircraft type in several weight categories.  

The following aircraft are exempt from landing fees: – Aircrafts of the Austrian Armed Forces – Aircrafts of the Police – Aircrafts of the Austro Control – Aircrafts stationed in LOAW (base Christophorus) – Aircrafts which had to make an emergency landing, if a corresponding report was made to the Austrocontrol. Does not apply to safety or alternate landings.

1.2 Landing rates during normal operating hours (08:30 am local time up to End of Operations)

The daily rate applies here. Every landing is charged. This also applies to touch and go landing and take-off. Information about discounts and promotions can be obtained from the airport operations management.

For take-off manoeuvres, i.e. approaches where the runway is not touched, a landing is charged for every second take-off manoeuvre. Exceptions: Weather-related influences (e.g. poor visibility, strong wind) Traffic-related influences (e.g. blocked runway, distances to other aircraft) Other justifiable influences

Note: Exceptional reasons must then always be discussed with the plant manager on duty. The acceptance of the free of charge is at his discretion.

For training flights with helicopters, a special agreement can be made with the duty operations manager for drift exercises with several landings.

1.3 Reduced rates – School rate

All flight students have the possibility to take advantage of a school landing tariff for landings within the framework of a basic training, either accompanied, supervised or instructed by a flight instructor.

Further training flights such as training flights for CPL, IFR, flight instructor training or similar do not fall under the basic training.

There is no school landing fee for landings that take place outside normal operating hours.

Prerequisites for the calculation of a school tariff are:

Student pilots from LOAN-based training organizations

Template a valid Student ID. This must be requested in writing from the company management by the place to be trained in good time (at least 2 days before the start of practical training). A pupil number plate has an expiry date; it is usually issued for 1 year. If a longer period of training is required, it is the duty of the place to be trained to apply in good time and in writing for an extension, which can then be agreed individually. 

Student pilots from non-LOAN training organisations

Prerequisite to receive a school landing fee is that the tower is informed by radio during the approach that it is a training flight (basic training).

If the above requirements are not met, there is no entitlement to subsequently submitted school land tariffs.

Completed Basic Training:

Discounts for pupils lose their validity with the issue of a pilot license in any case.

The notification of completion of the training must be sent to Diamond SFCA Flugplatzbetriebs GmbH in writing as soon as possible.  The notification can be submitted by the student pilot, flight instructor or the training company. 

If the logoff procedure is not followed, the following steps are taken:

Subsequent calculation of the difference to the respective appropriate landing tariff of the aircraft.

1.4 Night landing rate – landing after 6:30 pm

1.4.1 General information

Landings between End of operations and 10 pm local time are landings outside the normal operating time of the airfield and are charged at the night landing rate. Therefore, all night landings are only possible in connection with an extension of the operating hours. (See page 3.2.)

Please note that for night flights each approach must be associated with a landing. Overflights, take-off maneuvers of any kind will be charged as landing even if there is no ground contact. This means that the number of landings as well as the take-off maneuvers are taken into account for the calculation. In the case of night landings, no school landing tariff can be claimed.
