Note for Pilots: All of the traffic that is NOT within the limits of Luanda, Cabinda and Catumbela CTR’s and Luanda TMA airspace are considered at Golf Airspace, which is not a controlled airspace .
In this type of airspace we only provide flight information services ( FIS ) or aerodrome flight information servisse (AFIS) if traffic in the vicinity of an uncontrolled aerodrome . Nobody is obliged to respond to calls from the controller. The most appropriate procedure will is to inform via chat that traffic information service is available.


Note for ATCs: Those who wish to open a position different from that mentioned above may do so respecting the following format approved by IVAO rules as an example:
Huambo Tower : FNHU_I_TWR
Saurimo Tower: FNSA_I_TWR


The "I" stands for " Information" , ie the type of service provided by the radio operator . Since these airfields are "uncontrolled " , there is no control service , but Aerodrome Flight Information System (AFIS ) is applicable, usually within 27NM ( 50km ) by a Radio Operator. The Radio Operator is not a controller and has no authority over traffic , only the information about the weather conditions and, traffic in the area and some other small informations, etc. Traffic separation is always the pilot responsibility. The callsign to be used will be " Huambo Radio " or "Saurimo Radio " and never " Huambo Tower " or " Saurimo Tower "
