Looking at some Greek aerodrome information charts, I discovered that there are airports with the designation "Local flights not permitted". I speculate this is because the areas are near sensitive/military installations.
My question is: How is a "local flight" defined?
- Is it a flight where the departure as well as arrival point is the airport in question?
- Is it a request for touch & go?
- Is it a flight around the airport area, beyond what is required for departure/landing (though I wonder how easy is that to define, particularly in case of e.g. meteorological conditions, such as local clouds)?
- All of the above? Something else?
FWIW, I noticed this looking at older charts (suitable only for simulation purposes), so I don't know if this reflects up-to-date information.
