NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

Link - DeKalb Peachtree Airport Noise Program Components

Noise sensitive area all quadrants; pilots use noise abatement procedures prescribed by NBAA for departures and arrivals.

Prior Permission Required:

Aircraft over 75,000 lbs. (certificated max take-off weight) and military aircraft must contact the Airport Director or Airport Noise Officer prior to landing at PDK (770)936-5440. PPR’s may be filed via e-mail using the “contact us” link from the airport’s website.

Touch & go operations: All pilots and flight schools are encouraged to practice touch-and-go operations at outlying fields whenever possible.

Intersection takeoffs: For noise abatement purposes, intersection takeoffs are not recommended.

Use of reverse thrust: Pilots of turbojet aircraft are requested to limit the use of reverse thrust at other than idle power and limit the use of reverse thrust to perform early runway turnoffs onto a taxiway.
