NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

Departure Procedures

VNAP A or B departures for all runways
Runway 12 - Turbo-jet/Turbo-fan aircraft.

No right turns west of the "LEDUC" non-directional beacon (NDB)

Arrival Procedures - VFR and Visual Approach

1. Avoid flying over the town of Leduc below 5000' ASL.
2. Runway 30 - right hand circuits.


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).

AIRPORT CURFEWS - NONE

PREFERENTIAL RUNWAYS

Noise Restricted Runway 12 per "Air Navigation Orders, Series II, No. 27, Schedule II. See COMMENTS for more information.

4. OPERATING ENVIRONMENT

- Noise Restrictions

- out of all the major international airports in Canada, Edmonton International has the least number of noise restrictions. Only one noise restriction is placed on aircraft flying in and out of the Airport

- only 0.008% of annual aircraft movements result in a noise complaint

- the Airport is protected by legislation which will prevent any future noise problems. The Airport Vicinity Protection Area program ensures that future development in adjacent communities will be compatible with airport operational growth

OPERATING QUOTA - NONE

ENGINE RUN-UP RESTRICTIONS - NONE

APU OPERATING RESTRICTIONS - NONE

NOISE BUDGET RESTRICTIONS - NONE

NOISE SURCHARGE - NONE
