NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

See UK AIP for details.

a. Bristol Airport is subject to Local Authority Planning Requirements, from 2300-0700 (local). Except in the case of aircraft in distress, all take-offs and landings between these hours are subject to prior application being made to the Airport Co-ordination Ltd.

b. The following procedures may be departed from only to the extent for avoiding immediate danger and for complying with ATC instructions.

i - Operations of all aircraft using the airport are to ensure that their aircraft conform to the noise abatement techniques laid down for the type of aircraft and that operations are conducted in a manner calculated to cause the least disturbance practicable in
areas surrounding the airport.

ii - Jet aircraft must not join the final approach track at a height of less than 2100 ft (QNH).

iii - Propeller driven aircraft of more than 5700 kg MTWA must not join the final approach track at a height of less than 1600 ft (QNH).

c. Unless otherwise instructed by ATC, aircraft using the ILS in IMC or VMC shall not descend below the height specified in i or iii above before intercepting the glide path nor thereafter fly below it. Aircraft approaching without assistance from ILS or radar shall follow a descent path which will not result in its being at any time lower than the approach path which would be followed by an aircraft using the ILS glide path.

d. The Noise Preferential Routeings (NPR) given below are compatible with ATC requirements and shall apply in both VMC and IMC. The tracks are to be flown by all departing jet aircraft and those propeller driven aircraft of more than 5700 kg maximum certificated weight, unless otherwise instructed by ATC, or unless deviations are required in the interests of safety.

The NPRs are incorporated in ATC Standard Instrument Departure procedures (SIDs).

Runway 09 Climb straight ahead to I-BON 4.7 nm DME to be no lower than 3000 ft QNH at this point before commencing the turn.
Runway 27 Climb straight ahead to I-BTS 4.5 nm DME to be no lower than 3000 ftQNH at this point before commencing the turn.

The obligations of NPRs cease when an altitude of 4000 ft QNH or above has been reached.

e. Jet aircraft and propeller driven aircraft of more than 5700 kg maximum certificated weight making visual approaches to Runway 27 shall intercept
final approach track at:

i Not less than 3 DME, from the North;

ii Not less than 4 DME, from the South.

f. Continuous Descent Approaches
Subject to ATC instructions, inbound aircraft are to maintain as high an altitude as practical and adopt a continuous descent profile, when appropriate. ATC will advise pilots of an estimate of the track distance to run to touchdown as soon as possible after first call on the approach frequency.

g. Aircraft Noise Quota Count System
Bristol Airport operates a Night Noise Quota System, the application of which is based upon the CAA Supplement to the UK AIP, pertaining to the Airport Noise Restrictions Notice for London Heathrow, London Gatwick and London Stansted. The quota count value for the take-off and landing by individual aircraft types is shown in the Annex to that Supplement:

i. The night quota count is applicable between 2330 and 0600 (local);
ii. the total seasonal quota is 1260 points (summer season) and 900 points (winter season);

iii. an aircraft with a quota count of 4 or above shall not normally be allowed to take-off or land during the period 2300-0600 (local).

h. Pilots and engineers should restrict the use of Auxiliary Power Units (APU) to the minimum tine necessary.


CONTINUOUS DESCENT APPROACHES (CDA)
f. Continuous Descent Approaches
Subject to ATC instructions, inbound aircraft are to maintain as high an altitude as practical and adopt a continuous descent profile, when appropriate. ATC will advise pilots of an estimate of the track distance to run to touchdown as soon as possible after first call on the approach frequency.

ENGINE RUN-UP RESTRICTIONS

Ground running of aircraft engine is not to be carried out between 2330-0600(local), except that in the case of an aircraft which is scheduled to depart at or before 0800 local, essential ground running may be carried out for periods not exceeding:

a) 2 minutes at full power
b) 5 minutes at 50% power or less
c) 10 minutes at idle power

Except for run at idle power aircraft should be positioned on the threshold of RWY 09 or in the vicinity of 09 holding area on TWY G.

APU OPERATING RESTRICTIONS
Pilots and engineers should restrict the use of Auxilary Power Units (APU) to the minimum time necessary.

As a general rule, APUs shall be switched off as soon as possible on arrival on stand or shall be limited to ETD - 25 minutes.
