Additional Information:

Circuits:

Circuits are at 1000' QFE always to the West - i.e. Left hand for 02 & 34 and Right hand for 20 & 16. A relief runway has been established parallel to Runway 02/20 and is used when main runway is undergoing maintenance or when the surface is being protected. Aircraft using Rochester Airport are required to have 1000,000 insurance and it is recommended that at least the 3rd party liability insurance cover mandated by the new EU directive for Aviation insurance - typically 3000,000. Proof of this shall be available for inspection whilst the aircraft is at Rochester Airport.

See EGTO AIP entry for other additional information which includes limitations on circuit practice and noise abatement procedures. Alternatively call the tower for a briefing

Note Circuits to the West are 1000' QFE (not QNH as stated in AIP)
