NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

When operationally safe and feasible, use ‘Close-In’ Noise Abatement Departure Profile (NADP) procedures consistent with FAA guidelines in Advisory Circular AC 91-53, current edition. Runway 06 noise departure heading assignments for new technology Stage 3 turbojet aircraft only. All other turbojet aircraft departing Runway 06 and 24 fly runway heading until 2,000 feet MSL. Be advised that departures on Runways 06, 13 and 24 are over noise sensitive areas. Runway 31 departures turn right heading 360 degrees until 2,000 MSL.

See note under Noise Mitigation/Land Use Planning Program Information.


CONTINUOUS DESCENT ARRIVAL (CDA) - NONE

AIRPORT CURFEWS - NONE

PREFERENTIAL RUNWAYS
Runway 6/24 is the preferential runway; however Runway 31 is preferred for all night time departures (2200L – 0700L). Otherwise, between the hours of 2130L and 0630L, Runway 6 is assigned on odd numbered calendar days and Runway 24 is assigned on even numbered calendar days on the basis of favorable wind (less than 3 knots) and weather conditions (ceiling above 1,000 ft).

OPERATING QUOTA - NONE

ENGINE RUN-UP RESTRICTIONS
Two (2) approved run-up areas: air cargo apron and Runway 31 hold-bay.
Run-up locations designated by Airport Authority and assigned by ATCT

NOISE MITIGATION/LAND USE PLANNING PROGRAM INFORMATION
October 7, 2005: The FAA approved an update to the airport's Part 150 program. This approval includes the establishment of a night time (10 P.M. – 7 A. M.) preferential use of Runway 31 for all departures, continued use of engine run-up sites, construction to close a gap in a noise barrier wall, adoption of ‘close-in’ noise abatement procedures, establishment of an acquisition program for property in the forecast 70-75 DNL or higher noise contour and creation of an airport noise overlay district.
