NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

All SID's and STRAR's are noise abatement routes, according to AIP Romania  European AIS Database

Reverse Thrust
To minimize disturbance in areas adjacent to the airport, Captains are requested to avoid the use of reverse thrust after landing, consistent with safe operation of the aircraft, especially between 2300 and 0700 (local time).

CONTINUOUS DESCENT ARRIVAL (CDA)

When approaching the airport, the use of CDA procedure (Continuous Descent Approach) and low power, low drag operating procedures are recommended to minimize noise disturbance on the ground. The CDA procedure should begin from as high altitude as possible.
The aircraft should maintain as clean as possible during approach, provided that this is consistent with ATC speed control requirements and the safe operation of the aircraft.

When inbound traffic is sequenced by vectoring, clearance below transition altitude will include an estimate of track distance to touch down. ATC may give descend clearance which does not comply with CDA procedures when the traffic situation requires.

For noise monitoring purposes, an arrival is classified as a CDA if it contains maximum one phase of level flight, not longer than 2 NM, below an altitude of 5000 ft.

AIRPORT CURFEWS

Between 00.00-07.00 LT the following operations are not permitted:

a. technical or training flights (except MTOW < 5700 Kg);

b. planning of scheduled flights of aircraft with MTOW ≥ 50 tones.

All operators who plan scheduled commercial flights and/or charter flights between 22.00-06.00 LT need prior approval by the Airport Director and these operations shall be subjected to an administrative charge as detailed in AIP Romania GEN 4.1-1.

Scheduled and charter flights with ETDs and ETAs between 06.00-22.00 LT, but which, due to operational reasons, are subjected to delays which become unavoidable, will also be charged as specified in AIP Romania GEN 4.1-1 in case take-off or landing occur between 2200 - 0600 LT.

PREFERENTIAL RUNWAYS
Between 2200-0600 runways shall be used as shown

- for landings: Runway 25
- for take-offs: Runway 07

Compliance with published noise abatement procedures shall not be required in adverse operating conditions such as:

a. if the runway is not clear and dry, i.e. it is adversely affected by snow, slush, ice or water, or by mud, rubber, oil or other substances;

b. in conditions when the ceiling is lower that 150 m (500 ft) above aerodrome elevation, or when the horizontal visibility is less than 1.9 km;

c. when the cross-wind component, including gusts, exceeds 28 km/h (15 Kt);

d. when the tail-wind component, including gusts, exceeds 9 km/h (5 Kt);

e. when wind shear has been reported or forecast or when adverse weather conditions, e.g. thunderstorms, are expected to affect the approach.

OPERATING QUOTA - NONE

ENGINE RUN-UP RESTRICTIONS
Prohibited between 2200-0600 local time.

APU OPERATING RESTRICTIONS
Avoid the use of APUs between 2200-0600 local time.

NOISE BUDGET RESTRICTIONS - NONE

NOISE SURCHARGE
In order to reduce the number of turbo-jet aircraft which land and take-off between 2200-0600 local time, the airport has higher landing charges based on MTOW. For details see AIP Romania GEN 4.1-1.
