About the Fir Warsaw

General guidelines

When operating in the FIR Warsaw please observe the following general IVAO EPWW rules:

Frequency:
Whenever practicable, 122.800 and 121.500 should be continuously monitored unless another frequency (ATC station for example) is more appropriate.

Altitudes
All altitudes are above mean sea level (AMSL) in feet.

  • Transition altitude: 6500ft unless stated otherwise (6500ft to EPWW FIR).

Transition level:
  • When the pressure is above 995 Transition level is 080
  • When the pressure is below 995 Transition level is 090

Squawk codes
The following codes are allocated for use by pilots, without direction from ATC for the purposes specified. Use these codes unless ATC instruct otherwise:

  • Code 7700 - Aircraft Emergency
  • Code 7600 - Radio Failure
  • Note, the code 7500 (hi jack) is NOT to be used on the IVAO Network
  • Code 2000 - When entering [ICAO] airspace from an adjacent region when no SSR code has been assigned
  • Code 7000 - When not receiving a service from an ATS unit in class F/G airspace

Speed restrictions
Do not exceed the 250kts IAS below FL100, unless you have permission from ATC, or the classification of airspace you are flying in means you are exempt from the rule. Military aircraft may also exceed the restriction.

Intentions must be broadcast on the Unicom frequency of 122.800
