NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

Verify information below with AIP Switzerland or AIP France AD2 LFSB-INI 1a
1. General

1.1 The following procedures are designed to avoid excessive aircraft noise in and around the Bale Mulhouse airport.

1.2 They are applicable to landing and takeoff for any aircraft flying in IFR.

1.3 These procedures are mandatory and Captains cannot ignore them unless if required by the safety of their aircraft.

1.4 Aircraft owners or operators not able to apply these prescriptions shall submit those they intend to adopt to the airport management for approval.

1.5 Hereafter, the word night includes the period 2000-0400 and day the period 0400-2000 (WIN + 1hr)

1.6 Noise measuring stations are located near thresholds of runway 15, 24 08, 26 and in the vicinity.

2. Departure Procedures

2.1 Aircraft shall adopt the climbing configuration and rating corresponding to noise abatement conditions of the moment.

2.2 The initial climb path shall be followed depending on the operational standards specific to each aircraft, in order to reach 5000ft AMSL as soon as possible.

2.3 At night, it is recommended to use RWY 33, except when not allowed by operational conditions.

2.4 At day, it is recommended for certain types of aircraft as noisy by the airport management.

2.5 The use of RWY 26 is recommended for takeoffs depending on the operational standards specific to each aircraft and the operational conditions of the moment.

Unless otherwise specified by ATC services, RWY 15 (1820 m) is the preferential runway for 'LUMEL', 'ELBEG', 'STR', and 'GTQ' SID takeoffs.

2.6 For aircraft categories A, B, C and D, paths are protected.

2.7 RWY 15 Departures

- The minimum climb gradient is set to 5%
- The HOC 2D departure can be used only during the period 0600-2000 (WIN + 1hr) on request from the Captain after checking that the aircraft belongs to the authorized aircraft.

The authorized aircraft are:

- Propeller aircraft with certificate of nuisance limitation (CLN)

- Turbo jet aircraft with a maximum takeoff weight less than 70 T and certified to the standards of ICAO Annex 16 Chapter 3, and whose over flying certification noise level is less than 89 EPNdB.

2.8 RWY 26 Departures
The minimum climb gradient is set to 8.5%

3. Arrival Procedures

3.1 Approaches shall be performed along an angle greater than or equal to the angle of the descent path defined by the ILS (RWY 15) or by the visual approach slope indicator system, VASES (RWY 33).

3.2 The descent path shall be selected so as to maintain clean configuration as long as possible with regard to safety and requirements of the air traffic control services.

3.3 Speed-down and trail out are performed to that the aircraft has the configuration and landing speed at the latest at 4 NM from the runway threshold.

3.4 Between 2000 and 0400 (WIN + 1hr) on landing on RWY 15, thrust reversers and pitch reversers may be set to a position exceeding the reverse idle power only when required for safety reasons.

CONTINUOUS DESCENT ARRIVAL (CDA) - NONE

AIRPORT CURFEWS

No aircraft is authorized to take off between 2200 and 0400 or land between 2200 and 0300 at the airport. In block times or off block times (WIN + 1 hr).

Most Noisy aircraft in Chapter 3 (Cumulative margin less than 5 EPNdB)

None of the most noisy aircraft included in Chapter 3 is authorized to land or take off between 2000 and 0400 at the airport. In block times or off block times (WIN + 1 hr).

General Aviation
No aircraft of General Aviation is authorized to take off or land between 2000 and 0400 at the airport. In block times or off block times (WIN + 1 hr).

Operating Restrictions
Movements of non-scheduled flights are prohibited between 2100 and 0400. In block times or off block times (WIN + 1 hr)

Exemptions and Dispensations
These restrictions do not prevent the following aircraft from landing and taking off exceptionally:

- aircraft performing ambulance or humanitarian transport missions
- aircraft in emergency situation due to flight safety reasons
- aircraft mentioned in article L. 110-2 of Civil Aviation Code
- aircraft operating for government missions.

The Airport Manager may exceptionally grant dispensations from these restrictions. Exemption request sheets can be obtained (0)3 89 90 26 12(14)

Aircraft Ground Movements
Between 2000 and 0400 aircraft ground movemente between hangars and aircraft stands must be carried out with tractors.

Aircraft pushing-back by means of their own engines is prohibited between 2000 and 0400 (WIN + 1hr).

Non Scheduled flights are prohibited between 2100 and 0400 (WIN + 1hr).

PREFERENTIAL RUNWAYS
See information under Noise Abatement Procedures.

OPERATING QUOTA - NONE

ENGINE RUN-UP RESTRICTIONS
Engine run-up is prohibited between 2000 and 0400 from Monday to Saturday and prohibited on Sunday all day long, except when they are carried out with noise suppressor. (Winter + 1 hour)

APU OPERATING RESTRICTIONS

On aprons, auxiliary power units can only be started for:

- 60 minutes prior to departure
- 20 minutes after arrival

Exemptions for special operations should be requested to EAP management.

The operating period of these APU for maintenance reasons shall be minimum.

NOISE MONITORING SYSTEM

The airport operates a CIEMAS (Computer Integrated Environmental Management System). Supplied by Lochard Environment Systems PTY LTD/AUS, it handles real time noise monitoring, complaint handling, real time flight tracking monitoring, real time air quality monitoring and water quality analysis. The system was completed in December 1998. There are 6 fixed and 4 semi-mobile NMT units (FEM and MEM). (FEM=Fixed Environmental Monitor, MEM=Mobile Environmental Monitor). The noise measuring stations are located near the thresholds of runway 15/33 and 08/26 and in the vicinity.

FLIGHT TRACK MONITORING SYSTEM
Yes - see information under Noise Monitoring System

NOISE LEVEL LIMITS - NONE

CHAPTER 2 RESTRICTIONS
Chapter 2 airplanes are ban from operating at airports in Switzerland as of April 1, 2002.
