- RNP RWY 32
- Black hole effect when landing on RWY 32 at night with no approach lights
Kos airfield is situated on a ridge of high ground which runs down the centre of the island. RWY 32 has a considerable upslope. Black hole effect when landing on RWY 32 at night with no approach lights. Expect turbulence caused by the undulating terrain in the vicinity of the airfield.
Unusual visual perspective on approach to both runways due to significant rwy slope. The effect is further compounded on approach to RWY 14 which has PAPIs set at 3.05Â° with an approach descent gradient of 3.32Â°.
VOR DME approaches to both RWYs are offset by 4Â°or 5Â°. In all but calm conditions, due to the nature of the surrounding terrain, unusual wind effects may be experienced especially on short finals and during the flare to either RWY.

1. Access to KOS TMA is restricted to aircraft capable of maintaining two-way radio communication with the appropriate ATS unit.
2. Aircraft including Helicopters, flying by VFR within KOS TMA, should follow VFR routes and altitudes as depicted in this chart, unless VFR criteria require otherwise or a special permission has been obtained from the appropriate ATS unit.
3. When necessary to deviate from the specified routes or altitudes a clearance should be obtained from the KOS / IPPOKRATIS Approach (freq. 119.95 MHz) before entering KOS TMA or immediately after departure.
4. To meet special traffic requirements the appropriate ATS unit may assign different VFR routes.
5. Position reports must be given to the appropriate ATC Unit (Ippokratis Approach or Ippokratis Tower ), when over reporting points depicted on this chart.
6. A continuous watch must be maintained on the appropriate frequency with Ippokratis Approach or Ippokratis Tower when flying the VFR routes depicted on this chart.
7. Cancellation of IFR flight plan within KOS TMA is subject to ATC approval and after such a cancellation the VFR routes and altitudes should again be followed.
8. It is reminded that on VFR routes the responsibility to maintain terrain clearance and to avoid collision with other aircraft and restricted airspace rests with the pilot.
KOS / IPPOKRATIS AIRPORT
1. To assist KOS / IPPOKRATIS Airport to arrange a landing sequence of VFR arriving aircraft and facilitate the aerodrome traffic, a visual holding pattern is established south west of KOS / IPPOKRATIS Airport.
2. Holding on the above pattern should be carried out 9nm South-West of KOS / IPPOKRATIS Airport (Point KEFALOS) at an altitude of 1500ft (1000ft for Helicopters) or as otherwise instructed by KOS / IPPOKRATIS Tower.
3. Aircraft destined to KOS / IPPOKRATIS Airport should hold over KEFALOS point and should not proceed to the airport before establishing contact with KOS / IPPOKRATIS Tower and receiving the relevant clearance.
