Radio Procedures


Fife Airport operates an Air-to-Ground (A/G) service on 130.455 MHz with the Call Sign "Fife Radio". This service is not constantly manned during operational hours, however it will be monitored.

If no response is heard, aircraft should self-announce their intentions using the Call Sign "Fife Traffic".


Inbound Aircraft

Inbound pilots are requested to make an initial call when 10 miles from the airfield with a request for "Airfield Information", upon which they will be advised the current Runway in Use, Airfield QFE and details of any known traffic in or around the circuit pattern

On joining the circuit, standard radio calls should be issued to announce:

  • Joining Crosswind
  • Downwind
  • Final


Departing Aircraft

  • Initial calls from aircraft should request a radio check, if required and "taxi information". Requests for engine start are not required
  • Power checks are performed on the south side of the apron and a radio call such as "G-XXXX taxiing to the south side of the apron for power checks" is sufficient
