Runway 06/24 restrictions:

i) Single engined jet aircraft are not permitted to take-off, roll or go-around on Runway 06.

ii) All other aircraft departing Runway 06 must use the full length of the runway.

iii) Practice engine failures after take-off are not permitted on Runway 06.

NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

The following procedures are to be used at all times by pilots using Farnborough. However, the requirements may at any time be departed from to the extent necessary for avoiding immediate danger or for complying with ATC instructions.

a. Pilots are to ensure that their aircraft are operated in a manner likely to cause the least disturbance in the areas surrounding the aerodrome.

b. Ground running of engines may only take place between the hours of 0800 – 2000 Mon – Fri (one hour earlier in Summer) excluding public holidays and is to be notified to ATC at the commencement and cessation of each run. All engine runs by jet aircraft, other than runs at ground idle power setting, are to be carried out on the engine ground running base on West 1 apron marked by the Sign “EGR”. Ground Running during weekends and public holidays is restricted to essential maintenance work only.

c. Departures – Noise Preferential Routings

i The Noise Preferential Routings given below are compatible with ATC requirements and shall apply in both VMC and IMC. The tracks are to be flown by all departing jet aircraft, and by all other aircraft of more than 2730kg MTWA, unless otherwise instructed by ATC or unless deviations are required in the interests of safety.

ii The use of the route is supplementary to noise abatement take-off techniques (see below).iii After take-off, pilots should ensure that they are at a minimum height of 500 ft aal before initiating any turn:

1. Runway 06: Climb straight ahead to 2 DME, then turn on track or as instructed by ATC. Note: see paragraph e.

2. Runway 24: Southerly departures (GWC, HAZEL). Climb straight ahead; after passing  1150ft QNH  turn left onto track 220° M; at 2 DME turn on track or as instructed by ATC.
Northerly departures (CPT). Climb straight ahead to 2 DME, then turn on track or as instructed by ATC.

iv Noise Abatement take-off techniques

1. All departures are to use best rate of climb until at or above 3000 ft. If the initial departure clearance involves leveling off below 3000ft. power settings used must not result in excessive noise levels at points on the ground underneath the flight path, especially when climb is recommenced.

Note: A noise and track monitoring system is in operation.

Note: This additional procedure may be cancelled by ATC if there is conflicting traffic in the instrument pattern for Runway 28 at Odiham Aerodrome using the phrase “cancel noise abatement”

d. Arrivals
ILS approaches are mandatory except when a non precision or visual approach is provided or authorized by ATC. The use of the ILS glide path if radiating is recommended for all approaches. All aircraft approaching to land or go-around from a visual or non precision approach shall establish on final approach not below 1000ft aal (1238ft amsl) and thereafter shall follow a descent path which will not result in the aircraft being at any time lower than 3.5º GP as is indicated by the PAPIs or ILS glidepath. Aircraft commanders are requested to minimize noise disturbance in the areas over flown during final approach by conforming to low power low drag procedures at all times. Additionally the requirements in AD 2.22 Flight Procedures, paragraph 1(a) must be complied with.

e. Traffic subject to noise abatement procedures should not normally expect a left turn out when departing from Runway 06.

f. To minimize disturbance in areas adjacent to the aerodrome, commanders of aircraft are requested to avoid the use of reverse thrust at all times, consistent with the safe operation of the aircraft. Where use of reverse thrust is essential, the use of idle reverse thrust should be used in preference.

g. The running of APUs is banned between the hours of 22:30 and 06:30 (local time).

h Chapter II/Stage II aircraft are not accepted. Prior Sight of an ICAO noise certificate is required for any aircraft not manufactured as Chapter III/Stage III compliant, wishing to land at Farnborough.

i. For environmental reasons, intersection departures are prohibited, all departures must use the full runway length; Runway 06 departures must use the starter extension.
