STANDARD ARRIVALS AT HALIFAX
1. FUNDY SIX ARRIVAL
This set of pathways or routes is generally used by aircraft arriving from the west including Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto. The aircraft is first cleared to CETTY, a waypoint located to the southeast of Windsor. Then, depending the runway to be used for landing there is a designated set of courses to be followed and waypoints to be passed over. For example, if runway 32 is to be used the aircraft proceeds from CETTY to MODIR where it turns to 145 degrees and passes over the approach to runway 05, continues over EBLUV to EMBAX. From EMBAX or beyond, the aircraft will be given a heading by the terminal controller to bring it left to intercept the approach path to runway 32. Other times the pilot will follow the arrival sequence but will be given an approach clearance via VOKIL, meaning that they go to EMBAX and turn left on a base leg to VOKIL. Very often however you will hear the procedure being overruled manually by the controller with a clearance direct to VOKIL from wherever the aircraft is at the time.
A similar narrative can be followed for approaches to the other three runways.
