NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

All aircraft must conform to the following procedures. These procedures may at any time be departed from to the extent necessary for avoiding immediate danger.

Every operator using the airport shall ensure that at all times aircraft are operated in a manner calculated to cause the least disturbance practicable over all parts of the island.

Unless ATC otherwise authorizes, Noise Preferential Routing and Procedures specified in the following tables shall apply to all aircraft approaching, landing, going around or taking off in accordance with the ATC clearance and shall apply in both VMC and IMC.

Take-off Procedures
Take-off procedures - runway 09 and 27 - climb straight ahead to at least 1500 ft aal or 3 DME which ever is the earliest before turning on course.

Special VFR/VFR Flights - take-off - aircraft proceeding on a clearance at or below 1000 ft QNH, continue straight ahead until clear of the coastline before turning on course. Aircraft climbing to higher altitudes/flight levels, climb straight ahead to at least 1500 feet QNH or 3 miles DME, whichever is the earlier before turning on course.

Landing Procedures
Visual Approaches
Aircraft carrying out visual approaches should proceed as follows

MTOW 5700 Kgs or less- Join the final approach at not less than and maintain 836 feet QNH ( 500 feet QFE) until intercepting on the glidepath PAPI indications.

MTOW greater that 5700Kgs- Join the final approach before crossing the coastline. Any aircraft overflying the Island to position on final approach must do so at an altitude of not less than 1500 feet QFE.

Jet Aircraft Procedures
The Noise Preferential Routeings and Procedures specified above will be used except that on 'going around', aircraft operating under IFR will, unless otherwise instructed, carry out the published missed approach procedure. Aircraft operating under VFR/SVFR will carry out a missed approach procedure as instructed by Air Traffic Control.

Training flights by approved ‘quiet’ jet aircraft may be permitted between 0800-2000 (winter), 0700-1900 (summer), Monday to Saturday inclusive
(details from ATC)

All aircraft are to avoid overflying the Princess Elizabeth Hospital (2 nm ENE of the aerodrome) at less than 1000 ft agl.
