NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES
Great Falls International Airport does not have a "written" noise abatement plan, but it does have some informal noise abatement procedures that are directed by the FAA air traffic control tower. In particular, the tower directs all jet aircraft departing on runway 21 to fly to the VOR south of town, then turn on course. This prevents aircraft from starting their turns too soon and flying over the city. Since the city lies directly north of the airport, those aircraft departing on runway 03 have no choice but to fly over the city. There are also no operating restrictions in place and all runways are paved and runway 3-21 is designed to accommodate any aircraft in the world. Runways 03 and 34 also have 1000' overruns at the end of each runway.
