NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

Pursuant to CAR 602.105, the following procedures apply at Hamilton International Airport.

Departure
RWY VNAP
All RWYS A or B

Departures
Departures not permitted on runway 06 between 2300-0700 hours local time unless authorized by Airport General Manager.

Runway 12L: Climb on track of 117deg till ZHM NDB and 3000 ft.

Runway 30R: Climb on rwy to 1300 ft. Turn left heading 260deg till abeam ZHA NDB. No right turn below 4000 ft.

Runways 06, 24: Climb on runway heading to 3000 ft before proceeding on course.

Arrival
Arrivals not permitted on and approaches not permitted to Runway 24 between 2300-0700 hours local time unless authorized by Airport General Manager.

Visual Arrivals:

1. Aircraft 26,000 kg and over (max cert gross take-off weight) maintain 3000 ft or above North of Rwy 12-30 except on final.

2. Remain on or above ILS glide slope or assumed 3 deg glide path.

Reverse Thrust
Consistent with safety of operations, pilots should minimize reverse thrust when using Runways 12 and 30.


CONTINUOUS DESCENT ARRIVAL (CDA)
The airport plans to use CDA by January 2009.

Per NAV Canadia:
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
No curfew on commerical flights however training flights are not permitted between 2300-0700 hours local time unless authorized by the Airport General Manager.
