NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

CANADA AIR PILOT NOISE OPERATING RESTRICTIONS AND NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

Pursuant to Canadian Aviation Regulations CAR 602.105 & 602.106, the following noise operating restrictions and noise abatement procedures apply at Montreal - Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport.

A. General

1. Noise operating restrictions apply to all turbo-jet and turbo-fan aircraft in accordance with the schedule in part "B".

2. Noise abatement procedures apply to all twin and multi-engine aircraft operating IFR or VFR as stipulated in part "C".

3. a) The testing of any aircraft power plant above idle power setting between 2300 and 0700 hours, local time for maintenance purposes is prohibited unless previously authorized by the Supervisor, Air Operations (tel: 514-633-3488)

4. All training flights are prohibited between 2000 and 0800 hours, local time, weekdays and at all times on Saturdays and Sundays. Departures and arrivals of training flights to be conducted outside the Montreal control zone are, however, authorized, subject to 1 and 2 above.

5. Exemptions: See “AIRPORT CURFEW” section below.

B. Noise operating restrictions by turbo-jet and turbo-fan aircraft
See “AIRPORT CURFEW” section below.


C. Noise Abatement Procedures

1. Preferential runway assignment in effect from 2300 to 0700 (local time)
See “PREFERENTIAL RUNWAYS” section below.

2. Departure procedures below are mandatory at all times for all runways. Compliance with the following procedures is a pilot responsibility.

a) Turbo-prop and piston powered aircraft: maximum rate of climb on assigned heading to 3,000 feet.

b) Turbo-jet and turbo-fan aircraft: VNAP* A or B on assigned heading to 3,000 feet or maximum rate of climb on assigned heading to 3,000 feet.

c) SID's conform to noise abatement procedures

d) SID's cancellation does not cancel noise abatement procedures
* see general information section - C.A.P. Noise abatement procedures

3. Arrival Procedures below are mandatory at all times for all runways. Compliance with the following procedures is a pilot responsibility.

a) Turbo-prop and piston powered aircraft (between 2300 and 0700 hours local time).

Turbo-jet and turbo-fan powered aircraft (at all times).

b) Intercept extended runway center line (Localizer) at 3,000 feet or above. Not mandatory for runways 06L 06R if over Lake St. Louis.

c) Consistent with safety, pilots will use thrust/drag configurations compatible with minimum noise emissions.

d) All approaches to remain above or on an assumed 3.0 degree glide slope.

e) Use of reverse thrust is to be avoided or reduced between 2300 and 0700 hours, when conditions permit.

f) Clearance for approach or for landing, does not cancel the arrival procedures described above.


CONTINUOUS DESCENT ARRIVAL (CDA)
Per NAV Canada:
In Canada we have 20 airports with RNAV STARS which are basically constant descent arrivals into the terminal areas (from assigned FL to below 5000’). Depending on the traffic, there would be no restrictions until landing.

At our major and secondary airports, CDAs are used at all times for descent to the terminal (from assigned FL to below 10,000 and below – The constant descent is then revised by ATC depending on traffic, metering requirements, aircraft equipage).

At most secondary airports and tertiary airports, aircraft are cleared for the approach. This is basically a CDA controlled by the pilot until landing, unless ATC needs to apply a restriction (level off) due to inbound/outbound IFR traffic (assuming no surveillance capability).

PREFERENTIAL RUNWAYS
Preferential runway assignment in effect from 2300 to 0700 (local time)

Consistent with safety considerations and operational requirements, ATC will assign runways in accordance with the order of priority listed below:

Departures


First choice
Second choice
Third choice
24L* or 10
24R* or 28**
06L or 06R
Arrivals

* Jets departing from runway 24R and 24L must climb runway heading to 4000' before starting right turn.

** The use of runway 28 for departure between 23:00 and 07:00 hours (local time) is restricted to turboprop and piston powered aircraft on a SID JADEE departure only.


Intersection departures are prohibited except that departures runway 10 may be authorized from the intersection of runway 06L.

ATC will not depart from the order of priority indicated above except for emergencies, Medevacs or operational limitations.

OPERATING QUOTA - NONE

ENGINE RUN-UP RESTRICTIONS
The testing of any aircraft power plant above idle power setting between 2300 and 0700 hours, local time for maintenance purposes is prohibited unless previously authorized by the Supervisor, Airside Operations (tel: 514-633-3488)

The testing of any aircraft power plant above idle power on the hangar line (cargo/maintenance area) is prohibited at all times.

NOISE MONITORING SYSTEM
Eight permanent noise monitoring terminals and one mobile monitoring station are used to continuously monitor noise levels around the airport. NMT location map.

The airport has the ANOMS system (Airport Noise and Operations Monitoring System) that processes radar data provided by NavCanada on aircraft position, altitude and speed, noise data measured by the noise monitors and weather information. ANOMS integrates all necessary analysis tools : noise monitoring, aircraft flight track investigation, statistical analysis, weather analysis, complaint investigation, mapping and reporting. The system has a comprehensive capability to relate noise complaints to aircraft operations and related noise levels.




FLIGHT TRACK MONITORING SYSTEM
See information under Noise Monitoring System above.

NOISE LEVEL LIMITS - NONE

CHAPTER 2 RESTRICTIONS
Chapter 2 airplanes >75,000 lbs are banned from operating in Canada except for those aircraft authorized by the Minister of Transport (northern exemptions).

CHAPTER 2 PHASEOUT
The phase out of Chapter 2 airplanes >75,000 in Canada was complete as of April 1, 2002. Those airplanes are banned from operating in Canada with the exception of a very limited number of exemptions for aircraft operating to northern and remote locations.
