¨ All aircraft to join overhead the field from the South at 6300' (CCT ht 800')
¨ Aircraft inbound from the N, to route via Tarlton Petronet Tank Farm at S26º04.70' E27º38.45' and the Battery Station Silos at S26º06.86 E27º40.98'.
¨ Aircraft inbound from W and SW route inbound via the Battery Station Silos.
¨ Aircraft inbound from E and SE route inbound abeam the West Rand Cons mine dump.
¨ Aircraft inbound from N-E route just clear of the Western edge of FALA CTR (watch for traffic when passing extended centre line of FAKR RWY 08/26) and join from the South.
