NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

The Bellingham International Airport is committed to being a good neighbor
by recognizing that there are residential areas around the airport that are
sensitive to aircraft noise. The following noise abatement procedures are
in effect at BLI:

a. VFR Noise Abatement Procedures

(There may be cases when VFR aircraft are unable to follow these
procedures due to tower direction, weather, training requirements,
or emergency procedures)

1. Departures - Runway 16: Fly runway heading to shoreline before commencing turns.

2. Arrivals - Runway 16: Follow published traffic pattern procedures.

3. Departures - Runway 34: Fly runway heading to freeway before commencing turns.

4. Arrivals - Runway 34: Fly base leg over water, fly final leg to cross shoreline on runway centerline.

b. IFR Noise Abatement Procedures

(IFR noise abatement procedures are in accordance with the FAA published
Standard Instrument Departures, published non-standard IFR departure
procedure, published standard instrument arrival and missed approach
procedures and standard radar vectors as directed by Vancouver Area Control
Center)

c. Airport Staff Responsibilities

Airport Staff will investigate all noise complaints received regarding aircraft
using BLI.

The Bellingham International Airport Advisory Committee believes the success
of the noise abatement procedure depends on the voluntary cooperation of
the aviation community. The members believe the highest level of compliance
will be achieved through pilot education. This will be achieved through
educational tools such as; airfield signs, airport facility directory; information
brochures, hangar visits, newsletters and visitor interaction. Airport privileges
should only be revoked as a last result.
