NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

Turbojet aircraft (over 70,000 pounds) departing Runway 18L fly runway heading until 1.5 Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) south of the localizer, then turn left to a 165-degree heading and climb on course; or fly an Advanced Navigation (ANAV) departure procedure directing aircraft over the Interstate-71/75 corridor for four nautical miles (n.m.) from the runway end.

Turbojet aircraft (over 70,000 pounds) departing Runway 18C fly runway heading; or fly an Advanced Navigation (ANAV) departure procedure directing aircraft to a turn point approximately four nautical miles (n.m.) from the runway end.

Turbojet aircraft (over 70,000 pounds) departing Runway 27 fly runway heading; or fly an Advanced Navigation (ANAV) departure directing aircraft to a turn point approximately four nautical miles (n.m.) from the runway end.

Turbojet aircraft (over 70,000 pounds) departing Runway 36C overfly the Ohio River by turning left after reaching 0.5 miles beyond the localizer (ICVG) to a 330-degree heading; or fly an Advanced Navigation (ANAV) departure procedure directing aircraft over the Ohio River for four nautical miles (n.m.) from the runway end.

Turbojet aircraft (over 70,000 pounds) departing Runway 36L turn left at 4.2 Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) from the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) Very High Frequency Omnidirectional Range (VOR) to a 325-degree heading to overfly the Ohio River; or fly an Advanced Navigation (ANAV) departure procedure directing aircraft over the Ohio River for four nautical miles (n.m.).

Continue night noise policy with a contra-flow arrival and departure procedure on the west side of the airport. (Nighttime noise policy is to designate larger aircraft nighttime arrival and departure procedures between 10:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. to the west.
Maximize, to the extent practicable, the use of Runway 27 for daytime departures.
Noise abatement departure routes (as listed above) shall be four nautical miles (n.m.) from runway overflight end or 5,000 feet Mean Sea Level (MSL); develop an Advanced Navigation (ANAV) procedure that directs aircraft to a turn point approximately four nautical miles (n.m.) from the runway end.

Runway Extensions(East/West)
The east/west runway extension, completed in Dec. 1994, enabled the Airport to direct more than 90 percent of night traffic over the less populated area to the west, where voluntary noise mitigation programs have been conducted purchasing more than 300 homes. The 2,200 feet extension makes the runway 10,000 feet long, enabling it to handle all of the cargo aircraft that normally depart at night. (Weather dictates departures and arrivals in other directions about 10 percent of the time)

In 2004 Runway 9/27 (east/west runway) was extended an additional 2,000 feet for a total length of 12,000 feet. This construction was part of a project to build a third north/south parallel runway (18R/36L) at 8,000 feet in length.
Runway Extensions(North/South)

The north/south runway extension approved by the FAA in June 1995, extended Runway 18C/36C (older north/south runway) by 1,500 feet to the north. This enabled southern departures to start their ascents earlier, allowing the aircraft to climb higher before reaching residential areas to the south. The runway extension was completed in 1996.

Close/Distant Procedures
The major air carriers operating at the airport have voluntarily adopted these procedures to further minimize noise from aircraft activity.

CONTINUOUS DESCENT ARRIVAL (CDA) - NONE

AIRPORT CURFEWS - NONE

PREFERENTIAL RUNWAYS

Maximize, to the extent practicable, the use of Runway 27 for daytime departures.

Nighttime Preferential Runway (10:00 p.m. – 7:00 a.m.)
Contra-flow arrival and departure procedure on the west side of the Airport. (Nighttime noise policy is to designate larger aircraft nighttime arrival and departure procedures to the west using Runway 9/27.

A secondary option for nighttime noise procedures has been developed to have turbojet aircraft departing Runway 36R during the nighttime hours turn left to 330-degree heading to follow the Ohio River corridor. This option was recommended in the 2006 FAR Part 150 Study. However it would require additional environmental study prior to approval and implementation. This secondary option was developed for potential nighttime operations increase by DHL Airways. During the study process, DHL moved its operations to Wilmington, Ohio. The proposed measure was kept in the study for potential future increase of nighttime cargo operations.
