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 - NONE


PREFERENTIAL RUNWAYS
Runway 08R/26L

OPERATING QUOTA - NONE

ENGINE RUN-UP RESTRICTIONS

ATC will approve idle ground engine runs. Permission for ground testing in excess of idle must be requested through the marshaller, Ext 3426, at all times. All engine tests above idle must commence in the Engine Test Bay. Times of operation are 0600-2300 LT. Engine testing on the open airfield will only be allowed for Chapter 2 aircraft between 0900 and 1700 and Chapter 3 aircraft between 0600 and 2300. Propeller driven aircraft are to be classified as Chapter 3.

APU OPERATING RESTRICTIONS

The APU is permitted functioning maximum 15 minutes after BLOCK ON TIME and may be started over 30 minutes before STD

NOISE BUDGET RESTRICTIONS - NONE

NOISE SURCHARGE
A noise surcharge is under development as to facilitate proper implementation of Noise Action Plan and a periodically Noise Report is presented to Ilfov County Environmental Protection Agency.

CHAPTER 2 RESTRICTIONS
Take off and landing of aircraft classified as Chapter 2 according to the criteria published in ICAO Annex 16 are forbidden. Also see Chapter 2 Phase out.

Are excluded from this prohibition operations of flights approved by Romanian Civil Aviation Authority - Main Road Bucharest - Ploiesti, no. 38-40, RO-013695, Sector 1, Bucharest, Romania in accordance with RACR-PM secon edition/2003.

CHAPTER 2 PHASEOUT

This airport is located in a country that is an ICAO Contracting State. Romania adopted the ICAO recommendation (Resolution A28-3) for the phase out of Chapter 2 airplanes. Currently as EU Member State, the EU Chapter 2 phase out for airplanes >75,000 lbs was completed April 1, 2002.

CHAPTER 3 RESTRICTIONS - NONE
