Russian ATC

Hello there,

i've been to Russia couple times (Petro, Yuzhno, St-Peter,..) and i just
learn that ATC does NOT provide temperature correction for altitude during radar vectors. Any of you have experience with that ?

Should i apply my own temperature correction next time and tell ATC ?
What would you do ?

thanks guys

Wouldn't surprise me if they had higher minimum vectoring altitudes because of that but not sure as don't land anywhere there but may have to so would be interested to find out.

Hi there,

Yup, as far as I know, you heard right.
There is NO temperature corrective added. My company uses a table for these corections and then adds this to all relevant, minimums etc.
We were told to inform atc of the corrected altitudes.
Have not actually got to try it yet, but that´s what it says in our manuals.

Hope this helps.

Ok then that is what i was thinking.

If you ever fly to UHPP from PANC, you will appreciate a temperature correction if ATC clears you over that HUGE volcano !!!....

thank you again
