Girona, Spain GRO/LEGE

Girona, Spain

VOR 02/ILS 20

The airport is situated in a valley with high ground to the N and W resulting in a MSA to the North of 9600′.


On approach to RWY 20, the ground rises steeply from a valley to the threshold which is built up to an embankment 50-100ft high. The radio altimeter will therefore indicate rapid closure with the ground between 200ft and 100ft. KANIG arrivals to RWY 20: Note the procedure minimum level at D20 GIR is above a standard descent profile.


RWY 02 has a significant upslope, particularly in the first section of the runway.
