About Burundi | History - Geography


Burundi, country in east-central Africa, south of the Equator. The landlocked country, a historic kingdom, is one of the few countries in Africa whose borders were not determined by colonial rulers.

The vast majority of Burundi’s population is Hutu, traditionally a farming people. Power, however, has long rested with the Tutsi minority, which historically has controlled the army and most of the economy, particularly the lucrative international export of coffee. Few real cultural differences are distinguishable between the two peoples, and both speak Rundi (Kirundi). Such linguistic homogeneity is rare in sub-Saharan Africa and emphasizes the historically close cultural and ethnic ties among the peoples in Burundi.

Even so, ethnic conflict between the Hutu and Tutsi has plagued the country since it gained independence from Belgium in 1962, at a great cost in human life and property. Few Burundians escaped the ensuing anarchy into which the country was plunged when this interethnic violence flared anew in the 1990s, a bloody conflagration that well illustrated the Rundi proverb “Do not call for lightning to strike down your enemies, for it also may strike down your friends.” Neither the presence of an international peacekeeping force beginning in the late 1990s nor the ratification of an agreement to share power between Hutu and Tutsi were immediately effective in curbing interethnic violence, which also spilled into the neighbouring countries of Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Burundians are now faced with the task of quelling ethnic dissent, promoting unity, and rebuilding the country.

Burundi Overflight Permits Procedures

The Given Below Information Is Extracted from the Burundi AIP


Altimetric Setting Procedures
Introduction

The altimeter setting procedures in use in Burundi are generally in accordance with those of document 8168-OPS volume I and are reproduced in full below:

The transition altitude is shown on the instrument approach charts inserted in part AD 2 of this AIP.

The QNH and the temperature to be used to determine the relief margin of the relief are given in the MET emissions supplied on request by the bodies of the air traffic services. The QNH is given in whole HPA.

Basic Altimeter Setting Procedures
General

A transition altitude is specified for each aerodrome. No transition altitude is less than 450m above an aerodrome. The vertical position of an aircraft at the transition altitude or below this altitude is expressed by its altitude, while this position at the transition level or above this level is expressed by a flight level.

The vertical position of an aircraft crossing the transition layer is expressed by its altitude as it descends and by its flight level as it ascends.

The zero-flight level is that where the atmospheric pressure is equal to 1017.2 hpa (29.92 inches of mercury). Two consecutive flight levels are separated by a pressure interval corresponding to 500ft (152.4 m) in a typical atmosphere.

Note: Here are examples of the relationship between flight level and altimeter indications, the equivalents in meters being approximated.

Flight Level

Feet
Altimeter indication - Meters
101000300
151500450
202000600
5050001500
100100003050
150150004550
200200006100
Takeoff And Climb

The QNH is communicated to the aircraft in the taxiing authorizations before taking off.

The vertical position of the aircraft during the climb is expressed by its altitude up to the transition altitude and then by the flight level.

Approach And Landing

The QNH is communicated to aircraft in approach clearances and clearances to enter the aerodrome circuit.

The QFE is communicated to the pilot on request.

The vertical position of an aircraft during the approach is expressed by its flight level until it reaches the transition level and then by its altitude.

Missed Approach

The relevant provisions of 2.2 and 2.4 apply in the case of the missed approach.

Note 1: Short-term flights around an aerodrome can often be authorized only at altitudes below the transition altitude.

Note 2: Unlike altitudes, flight levels are indicated in a plan by their number and not in feet or meters.

Special Rules Applicable To Burundi
Fuel Reserve:

Flight inside Burundi: The aircraft must have a fuel reserve giving them the following autonomy: projected flight time at cruising speed plus 45 minutes of flight.

Flight to or from the territory of Burundi: IFR flight; aircraft must have a fuel reserve giving them the following autonomy: projected flight time at normal cruising speed, plus flight time of the aerodrome.

Special Rules Applicable To Burundi
1- Fuel Reserve

Flight inside Burundi: The aircraft must have a fuel reserve giving them the following autonomy: projected flight time at cruising speed plus 45 minutes of flight.

Flight to or from the territory of Burundi: IFR flight; aircraft must have a fuel reserve giving them the following autonomy: projected flight time at normal cruising speed, plus flight time from the destination aerodrome to one of the alternate aerodromes provided in the flight plan, plus 45 minutes flight. The total flight time above should not be less than 2 hours.

2- Night Flights

Night flights are authorized only at Bujumbura aerodrome.

Note: The times of sunset and sunrise at a specific place are calculated using aeronautical ephemeris and can be indicated by the meteorological assistance service for air navigation at Bujumbura airport.

3- Local flights

Local flights inside or outside the aerodrome circuit are exempt from flight plan. They may, however, warn the control tower before the departure of the planned route, of the expected flight time and of the range at the time of takeoff.

Regional Supplementary Procedures (Doc 7030)

The complementary regional procedures in force in Burundi are those of ICAO document 7030 in the AFI region.

Air Traffic Current Management (ATFM)

This specific management is not applied in Burundi, only the approach and aerodrome control channel all traffic to the Bujumbura International Airport.

Flight Planning (Restrictions, Limitations and Tips)
1. Flight plan filing procedure

Any flight except for local flights authorized by the air traffic services must be subject to the filing of a flight plan with the air traffic services bodies 60 minutes before the estimated time of departure of the aircraft.

When the flight plan is communicated during the flight, it will be transmitted in good time in order to reach the appropriate air traffic services agency at least ten (10) minutes before the scheduled time of the passage of the aircraft:

a) At the planned point of entry into a control region or an advisory service region

b) At the intersection of his route and an airway or advisory road

The information to be communicated is indicated in the corresponding boxes on the ICAO flight plan form.

2. Repetitive Flight Plan System

This system is not applied in Burundi.

3. Modification To The Filed Flight Plan

1) All changes to a flight plan filed for an IFR flight, or a VFR flight carried out means that controlled flight, will be reported to the relevant air traffic services agency as soon as possible.

2) In the case of other VFR flights, any significant change to a flight plan will be reported to the relevant air traffic services agency as soon as possible.

3) All information provided before departure regarding fuel range or the total number of people carried on board, if this information was incorrect at the time of take-off, will constitute a significant change to the flight plan and as such must be declared .

Addressing Of Flight Plan Messages

To be correctly retransmitted and delivered, flight movement messages relating to aircraft bound for or passing through FIR Bujumbura will be sent in the manner set out below.

Note: Flight movement messages include flight plan messages, flight plan amendment messages and flight plan cancellation messages. On this subject, see ICAO Doc 4444-PANS-RAC
