Stockholm Bromma - partly closing

Bromma ( ESSB) will be closing for everything except approach category B aircraft from 17th of November.

You can still get by, if you can show the authority, that your aircraft can be operated as cat B aircraft (lower your landing weight) and that data is confirmed by manufacturer and in case of AOC, the special ops specs for Bromma are covered in manuals.

Too bad Arlanda is a bit far. Like someone said, Arlanda is one hour away from every scandinavian capital, including Stockholm...

That's a huge shame. It's a great airport and very convenient.

I spoke to our flight ops and they said that it was originally going to happen on Sept 30. So far, it hasn't.

From the airport via Grafair Handling:

The text below is given to us from the airport. It will later be published in Swedish AIP, ESSB.

Aerodrome restrictions
The airport is classified as code 2C according to ICAO Annex 14th.Types of aircraft that have a higher reference code than 2C is therefore not allowed to operate at the airport.
Operators wishing to operate the airport with an aircraft that has a higher reference code than 2C must apply for permission addressed to the aerodrome manager in writing or in special cases by phone. The requirement is then that there is a special procedures so this type of aircraft can be classified in the approach category B (FAA). Application must include information on type and model of aircraft, and a description of the proposed procedure. The matter can be handled during office hours only.

Operators wishing to operate the airport with an airplane that has a higher reference code than 2C, shall apply in writing to prove to the airport that the aircraft type can be operated according to the requirements for approach category B (maximum threshold speed 120 knots).

For operators wishing to operate Stockholm Bromma Airport with an aircraft who has a higher reference code than 2C, the airport demands following documentation:
- Evidence from the aircraft manufacturer, who declares in writing that this particular type of aircraft can be operated in accordance with the approach category B (by example. reduced landing weight etc.)
- The operator must demonstrate in writing procedures that are operationally suitable for approach category B and who the airport will then accept.
- The operator must then show that the airport approved procedures are registered in the operators operations manual (OM).

CAT B is 91 up to 120 knots Vref or stall speed at MLW by 1,3

Ive tried to check on the 2C code and came up with the following:

1) 800 to 1199mtrs of 'Aeroplane reference field length' -> this seems to be the tricky one. 1199mtrs translate to 3933ft. The definition I found says:
The minimum field length required for takeoff at maximum certified takeoff mass, at sea level, in standard atmospheric conditions, in still air and zero runway slope, as shown in the appropriate airplane flight manual prescribed by the certificating authority or equivalent data from the airplane manufacturer. Field length means balanced field length for airplanes, if applicable, or takeoff distance in other cases.

2) 24 to 35,99 mtrs of wing span

3) 6 to 8,99 mtrs outer main gear wheel span

I stand to be corrected on the Aeroplane reference field length...

When Grafair expanded their FBO some years ago it was done on the written assurance from the operator that the ever ongoing pressure to close Bromma would not happen for at least another 30 years. Bengt will be very unhappy with this if true. And what of Air Malmo's operations with the 146?

Yea, what does this mean for Malmo Aviation? If the above definition is correct then I guess the Avro 100s they fly will not qualify to operate there anymore? Perhaps the restriction is not applicable for scheduled services?
