NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

Letter to Airmen No. 10-1 08-1
Subject: Voluntary Airport Noise Abatement
Cancellation: 1-1- 2012
Issued: 4-1-2010
Effective: 4-1-20101-1-2008

This Letter to Airmen identifies noise sensitive areas in the vicinity of Hartford-Brainard Airport, and describes procedures to minimize noise impact in these areas. The State of Connecticut developed these procedures with the assistance of the FAA, pilots, aviation business, community representatives and other interested parties. Your cooperation with these noise abatement efforts is urged.

Noise Sensitive Land Uses
When possible, please avoid overflight of the close-in noise sensitive areas (contact Airport Manager for a copy of this map).

Priority of Runway Use
A. When the wind is less than 5 knots, and traffic and other conditions permit, Hartford-Brainard Tower will utilize runway 2 for departures, and runway 20 for arrivals. This bi-directional use of the runway minimizes noise levels in the sensitive areas. When using a bi-directional flow, the runway must be clear and dry with braking action reported as "good".

B. Runway 2 will be designated as the "Calm Wind Runway". It will be used whenever the wind speed is less than 5 knots, and conditions do not allow the use of runway 20 for arrivals. If runway 2 is used with a tailwind component, the runway must be clear and dry with breaking action reported as "good".

C. If a pilot determines, in the interest of safety, another runway should be used, Hartford-Brainard Tower, to the extent traffic and other conditions permit, will assign that runway. Workload permitting, the pilot will be informed if the requested runway is noise sensitive. Also, it is recognized that Hartford-Brainard Tower personnel, when safety, traffic or other conditions require such an assignment, may have to assign a runway which is other than the preferred runway.

Fixed Wing Flight Track Procedures
A. Runway 2 VFR departures, traffic permitting should turn left at least 20 degrees and follow the river until 2 nautical miles north of the airport (one mile north of the Charter Oak Bridge).

B. Runway 20 VFR departures, traffic permitting, should turn left at least 25 degrees as soon as practical after take-off and follow the river until 2 nautical miles south of the airport (one mile south of the Putman Bridge).

C. Runway 2 arrivals from the south, traffic permitting and whenever possible, should remain east of Interstate 91 (I-91), and overfly the Putman Bridge.

Turbojet Business Aircraft
Pilots of turbojet business aircraft are requested to use NBAA recommended noise abatement procedures, developed for take-off over close-in residential communities, and for VFR and IFR approaches.
A copy of the NBAA procedures manual is available at the Airport Manager's Office.

Helicopter Flight Corridors
Helicopter flight corridors have been designed to minimize overflight of noise sensitive areas. Pilots should maintain a minimum altitude of five hundred feet AGL, (519 MSL), before crossing the boundaries. Contact the Airport Manger for this map.
