Abu Dhabi (Al Bateen), UAE AZI/OMAD

Abu Dhabi (Al Bateen), UAE


Al Bateen Executive Airport is located 9nm W of Abu Dhabi International Airport on the eastern outskirts of the city.

Caution: There are several obstacles surrounding the airport most noticeably to the SE where the Sheikh Zayed Mosque is located 800m from the RWY 31 threshold reaching 384ft amsl.


Approaches and PAPIS have a descent angle of 3.50°.
No circling minima published. All visual circuits are to be flown to the W of the RWY.


Caution: Early consideration of take-off performance prior to loading final fuel is essential. T/O performance is limited from RWY 13 due to the location of the Mosque. A Tailwind departure from RWY 31 offers improved performance.


Both RWY thresholds are significantly displaced.
