GEN 2. TABLES AND CODES

GEN 2.1 MEASURING SYSTEM, AIRCRAFT MARKINGS, HOLIDAYS

1. Units of measurement

The table of units of measurement shown below will be used by aeronautical stations within KATHMANDU FIR for air and ground operations.

For measurement of

Units used

Distance used in navigation, position reporting, etc. – generally in excess of 2 nautical miles

Nautical miles and tenths

Relatively short distances such as those relating to aerodromes (e.g. runway lengths)

Meters

Altitudes, elevations and heights

Feet

Horizontal speed including wind speed

Knots

Vertical speed

Feet per minute

Wind direction for landing and taking off

Degrees magnetic

Wind direction except for landing and taking off

Degrees true

Visibility, including runway visual range

Kilometers or meters

Altimeter setting

Hectopascal

Temperature

Degree Celsius

Weight

Metric tones or kilograms

Time

Hours and minutes, beginning at midnight UTC

2.

Temporal reference system

2.1.

General

Co-ordinated Universal Time (UTC) and the Gregorian calendar are used by air navigation services and in publications issued by the Aeronautical Information Service. Reporting of time is expressed to the nearest minute, e.g. 12:40:35 is reported as 1241. Local time is 5 hours and 45 minutes ahead of UTC. Time checks to aircraft are accurate to within 30 seconds.

GEN 2.1-2 3 June 2010

AIP

NEPAL

3.

Horizontal reference system

3.1.

Name / designation of system

All published geographical coordinates indicating latitude and longitude are expressed in terms of the World Geodetic System—1984 (WGS-84) geodetic reference datum.

3.2. Projection

Projection is expressed in term as Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM).

3.3. Ellipsoid

Ellipsoid is expressed in terms of the World Geodetic System—(WGS-84) ellipsoid.

3.4. Datum

The World Geodetic System—(WGS-84) is used.

3.5. Area of application

The area of application for the published geographical coordinates coincides with the area of responsibility of the Aeronautical Information Service, i.e. the entire territory of Nepal.

3.6. Use of an asterisk to identify published geographical coordinates

An asterisk (*) will be used to identify those published geographical coordinates which have been transformed into WGS-84 co-ordinates, but whose accuracy of original field work does not meet the accuracy requirements in Annex 11, Chapter 2 and Annex 14, volumes I and II, chapter 2.

4.

Vertical reference system

4.1.

Name/designation of system

The vertical reference system corresponds to mean sea level (MSL).

5. Aircraft nationality and registration Marks

The nationality mark for aircraft registered in Nepal is the figure 9, followed by the letter N i.e. 9N. The national mark is followed by a hyphen and a registration mark consisting of 3 letters, e.g. 9N - ABA.
