NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

The following procedures may at any time be departed from to the extent mecessary for avoiding immediate danger. Every operator of an aircraft using the airport shall ensure at all times that the aircraft is operated in a manner calculated to cause the least disturbance practicable in areas surrounding the airport.

Departures - Chapter 2 Aircraft
Take-off to 1500 ft AGL Take-off power
Take-off flaps
Climb at V2+10 kt (or as limited by body angle)
At 1500 ft AGL Reduce power to not less than climb power
1500-3000 ft AGL Climb at V2 + 10kt
At 3000 ft AGL

Normal speed and flap retraction schedules
to en route climb

Departures - Chapter 3 Aircraft as well as B737-200 as far as the noise
levels for take-off pursuant to ICAO Annex 16 Chapter 3 have provably
been reached by supplementary equipment.
Take-off to 1000 ft AGL Take-off power
Take-off flaps
Climb at V2+10 kt (or as limited by body angle)
At 1000 ft AGL Maintaining a positive rate of climb, accelerate to
zero flap minimum safe maneuvering speed (Vzf)
retracting flap on schedule.

Thereafter reduce thrust consistent with the following:

a) For high by-pass ratio engines, reduce to normal
climb power/thrust

b) For low by-pass ratio engines, reduce power/thrust
to below normal climb thrust but not less than that
necessary to maintain the final take-off engine climb
gradient; and

c) For airplanes with slow flap retracting, reduce
power/thrust at an intermediate flap setting.
1000 3000 ft AGL Continue climb at not greater than Vzf + 10kt
At 3000 ft AGL Accelerate smoothly to en route climb speed.

CONTINUOUS DESCENT ARRIVAL (CDA) - NONE

AIRPORT CURFEWS
On Airports and/or Aerodromes landing and/or take-off is forbidden by Law between 00:00 and 06:00 LMT, except in case of
force majeur.

According to Governmental deliberation, an exception regime has been granted for Lisboa, Proto and Madeira Airports in which landing and or take-off will be allowed between 0000 and 0600 local time to civil aircraft that:

1. Have had a flight coordinated with at least one day in advance with the IATA Slot Coordinator, and

2. Have a noise certificate according to ICAO Annex 16 Chapter 3.

Cases of force majeur are considered as follows:

a. aircraft and medical emergencies, evacuations and humanitarian reasons

b. landing and take-off in a situation where the airport is alternate for meteorological reasons, technical failure or flight safety

c. flights that have been previously approved by the Government or occasionally by Portuguese National Aviation Institute (INAC), in cases which proved of public interest

d. flights delays caused by serious ATC perturbation.

e. landing and or take-offs until 0100 local time for flights planned before 0000 local time delayed for reasons not imputable to aircraft operator or airport.

f. traffic portion to and from the Autonomous Regions of Madeira and Acores due to meteorological reasons.

g. landings in the period from 0500 to 0600 local time due to meteorological reasons, provided the scheduled arrival time is planned after 0600 local time.

PREFERENTIAL RUNWAYS - NONE

OPERATING QUOTA - NONE

ENGINE RUN-UP RESTRICTIONS
Engine test runs are allowed from 04:30 to 23:00 on the condition that a previous authorization is obtained from the Airport Operations Service using VHF Frequency 131.450MHZ, call sign FARO Safety. Operators shall indicate the real time of start
and duration of the test.

Engine test runs with idle power may take place on stands with the exception of those with Apron Drive Loading Bridges (14, 16, 18, 20, 22 and 24) and the test is limited to a maximum of 5 minutes.

Engine test runs above idle power shall take place in a location designated by Airport Operations Service (TWY “C1”, TWY “C2) or TWY “P”).

APU OPERATING RESTRICTIONS
The use of APU must be limited as much as possible.

APU may be used at stands 14, 16, 18, 20, 22 and 24.

Narrow Body aircraft are allowed to use APU until 5 minutes after "chocks on" and 10 minutes before estimated time of departure.

Wide Body aircraft are allowed to use APU until 10 minutes after "chocks on" and 20 minutes before estimated time of departure.

EXEMPTIONS: If air conditioning systems at the Loading Bridge is unserviceable.

APU out of Service
When ever an aircraft APU is out of service, one engine start-up is permitted on the stand before starting the push-back maneuver. However, a previous authorization shall be obtained from Airport Operations Service using VHF Frequency 131.405 MHZ, call sign FARO Safety, before start-up clearance from Faro tower.
