NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

See UK AIP EGFF AD 2.21 Noise Abatement Procedures for details

a. Every operator of aircraft using the airport shall ensure at all times that aircraft are operated in a manner calculated to cause the least disturbance practicable in areas surrounding the airport.

b. The Noise Preferential Routings (NPR) given below are compatible with ATC requirements and shall apply in both VCM and IMC. The tracks are to be flown by all departing jet aircraft and by all other aircraft with a maximum certificated weight exceeding 5700 kg unless otherwise instructed by ATC or unless deviations are required in the interest of safety.

The NPRs are incorporated in ATC Standard Instrument Departure procedures:

Take-Off Runway
NPR
12
North: Climb straight ahead to 4.5 nm DME before turning left
South: Climb straight ahead to 2 nm DME before turning right
30
Climb straight ahead to 4 nm before turning either left or right

c. 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.

d. In the interest of noise abatement, restrictions are imposed on the ground running of engines between 2230-0730 and operators are advised to contact the Airport Operations Director for details.

e. The use of reverse thrust, particularly after 2130 is to be kept to a minimum consistent with operational needs.


CONTINUOUS DESCENT ARRIVAL (CDA)
c. 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.
