How to operate in the Stansted Transponder Mandatory Zone
To operate within the Stansted TMZ you are required to have a (Mode A/S) transponder with Mode C (Alt) switched ON.
Aircraft with a Mode A/S transponder with Mode C equipped aircraft may access a London Stansted TMZ without ATC approval although such traffic is strongly recommended to afford itself of either an ATSOCAS or make use of an appropriate Flight Monitoring Code ( Listening Squawk ) *London Stansted 7013 and listen out on 120:625
*This will assist ATC should your transponder have an alt error.
Aircraft without a transponder or Mode A only
The pilot of an aircraft that wishes to operate in a London Stansted TMZ without a transponder or with a transponder operating in Mode A only maybe granted access to the TMZ subject to specific ATC approval. This approval may be obtained from Farnborough Radar on frequency 132.800 during their hours of operation (0800-2000 Winter (Summer 1 hour earlier)) or from Essex Radar on frequency 120.625 at other times.
- Call Farnborough LARS in plenty of time — the frequency can be busy.
- Ensure that Mode C is switched on at all times with ALT selected.
- Remember, aircraft without the required transponder equipment and not communicating with either Farnborough Radar or Essex Radar must remain outside the TMZ.
- If at any point you are unsure of your position — call ATC.
