German Airfield Practice Aproach Fees

Most civil airfields in Germany have landing and service fees associated with landing rights. A recent incident has highlighted the fact that there are also several airfields that charge for practice approaches. The only way to find out this is by ATC telling you to land and pay the fee (which will also incur a landing fee!) or by consulting the Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP) at AFOD prior to your flight. Most of the airfields that charge approach fees are privately run and include Friedrichshafen (EDNY), Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden (EDSB) and Paderborn/Lippstadt (EDLP). You should question any airfield that was once owned by a foreign government and has been returned to local control. If you have any doubts about aeronautical fees that may be charged to your aircraft, the PIC should call ahead to the airfield in question or contact AFOD's NOTAM section for further guidance.
