- ILS Z/Y 24 | VOR 06
- Turbulence & windshear
Once in sight of the airfield, a visual circuit is usually possible, although care should be taken not to infringe Turkish airspace.
Do not mistake the former main airport of Maritsa, lying 1.5nm to the SE, for Paradisi.
The ILS frequency is the same as Izmir (110.3) and I MEN will code during the descent until quite close to Rhodes.
TURBULENCE IN THE APPROACH, TAKE-OFF AND CLIMB OUT AREAS
1) Exercise extreme caution when South or Southeasterly winds of more than 10-15 KT prevail as moderate or severe turbulence and wind shear may be encountered in the final apch and/or initial climb out areas (mainly RWY 06). More specifically the following phenomena affecting seriously the flight safety are observed:
- The wind direction and speed at a given time vary along the runway (horizontal wind shear).
- The wind direction and speed, at a given point of the runway, are continuously changing (turbulent wind shear).
- Severe turbulence in the final apch, take-off and initial climb out areas.
2) When the South or Southeasterly wind speed increases over 15 KT, landing and/or take-off are not recommended since a severe horizontal and turbulent wind shear may prevail at some intermediate point of the final apch and/or take-off and initial climb out areas.
3) Pilots are urged to volunteer reports of wind shear to DIAGORAS Tower or Approach controllers as soon as possible, so that the pilots of following aircraft can be warned. It is suggested that pilots should report wind shear in the following format:
- A simple warning of the presence of the wind shear, even if no further information can be given.
- The altitude or altitude band, where the wind shear was encountered.
- Details of the effects of the wind shear on the acft, i.e. airspeed gain or loss, vertical speedtendency, etc.

1. Access to Rodos TMA is restricted only to aircraft capable of maintaining two-way radio communication with the appropriate ATS unit. Contact DIAGORAS TWR (freq.118.200) or RODOS APP (freq.127.250, 118.250) at reporting points or any other point but not later than 5 min prior to entering RODOS TMA.
2. Aircraft (including Helicopters) flying under VFR within RODOS TMA, should follow the VFR Routes and Altitudes as depicted in this chart unless VFR criteria require otherwise or a special authorisation is obtained from the appropriate ATC unit.
3. To meet special traffic requirements the appropriate ATS unit may assign different VFR routes.
4. Cancellation of IFR flight plan within RODOS TMA is subject to ATC approval and after such a cancellation the VFR Routes and Altitudes should again be followed.
5. It is reminded that on VFR Routes and Altitudes the responsibility to avoid collision with other aircraft provides terrain clearance and avoids restricted airspace rests with the pilot.
6. Aircraft flying by VFR within RODOS TMA shall be equipped with a functioning transponder with mode A and C capabilities.
7. Unless otherwise instructed by the appropriate ATS unit, the VFR aircraft shall squawk A 7000.
Rodos / Diagoras Airport
1. When air traffic conditions require ATC may assign different VFR Routes and Altitudes. Also when deemed necessary by the pilots to deviate from the specified routes and/or altitudes they should communicate with RODOS APP (freq.127.250, 118.250) prior entering RODOS TMA or immediately after departure to obtain clearance for deviation.
2. Position reports must be given to the appropriate ATC unit (RODOS APP freq.127.250, 118.250 or DIAGORAS TWR freq.118.200 ), when over compulsory reporting points depicted on this chart.
3. A continuous watch must be maintained on the appropriate frequency with RODOS APP (freq.127.250, 118.250) or DIAGORAS TWR (freq.118.200), when flying the VFR Routes and Altitudes depicted on this chart.
4. The use of functioning transponder, with 4096 codes capability on Mode A and automatic altitude transmission on Mode C, within RODOS TMA is mandatory for all IFR and GAT VFR flights. *
5. To assist DIAGORAS TWR to arrange a landing sequence of VFR arriving aircraft and facilitate the aerodrome traffic, two visual holding patterns are established north and south of DIAGORAS Airport.
6. Holding on the above patterns should be carried out 2NM North (DELTA), at an altitude of 1000 ft, and 2NM South (MARITSA), at an altitude of 2000 ft, of RWY 06/24 or as otherwise instructed by DIAGORAS TWR.
