CONTINUOUS DESCENT ARRIVAL (CDA) - NONE

AIRPORT CURFEWS
Departures between 10pm and 7am for aircraft which takeoff noise levels, as published in the FAA Advisory Circular 36-3E(or its most recent replacement) which exceed 82.0 dBA (except for aircraft owned and operated by the U.S. government, aircraft operating for purposes directly related to medical emergencies and aircraft operating with prior written approval from the airport management) must have 12 hour PPR.

In addition, touch and go operations are also prohibited 10pm-7am.

PREFERENTIAL RUNWAYS

Priority of Runway Use

a. Runway 11/29 is the preferred runway for noise abatement. ATC will assign runways according to a noise abatement priority table, consistent with safe aircraft operation. Pilots are requested to conform to such assignments, except if the pilot determines, in the interest of safety, that another runway should be used. ATC shall assign that runway to the extent that air traffic and other conditions permit. The pilot will be informed if the requested runway is noise sensitive.

b. During hours when the tower is not in operation, pilots are requested to utilize Runway 11 or 29 when winds are 5 knots or less, consistent with safe aircraft operation.
