NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

In order to alleviate problem of noise within the vicinity of Bangkok International Airport (BIA). The noise abatement procedures in accordance with ICAO DOC 8168 OPS/611 (PAN-OPS) shall be applied for all takeoffs and landings.

Take-off Procedures:
a. Procedure for alleviating noise close to the airport

1. The noise abatement procedure is not to be initiated at less than 800 ft above airport elevation.

2. The initial climb speed to the noise abatement initiation point shall not be less than V2 +10 knots.

3. On reaching an altitude at or above 800ft, adjust and maintain engine power/thrust in accordance with the noise abatement power/thrust schedule. Maintain a climb speed of V2 + 10 to 20 knots with flaps and slats in the take-off configuration.

4. At no more than an altitude equivalent to 3000ft, while maintaining a positive rate of climb, accelerate and retrace flaps/slats on schedule; at 3000ft accelerate to en route climb speed.

b. Procedure for alleviating noise distance from the airport

1. The noise abatement procedure is not to be initiated at less than 800 ft above airport elevation.

2. The initial climbing speed to the noise abatement initiation point is V2 +10 to 20 knots.

3. On reaching an altitude equivalent to at least 800 ft decrease aircraft body angle/angle of pitch while maintaining a positive rate of climb. Accelerate towards Vzf and reduce power with the initiation of the first flaps/slats retraction.

4. Maintain a positive rate of climb and accelerate to maintain a climb speed of Vzf + 10 to 20 knots. On reaching 3000ft transition to normal en route climb speed.

On arrival, reverse thrust above idle shall not be used between 1800 and 2200 UTC except for safety reasons.
