NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

1. Aircraft Operating Procedures (except helicopter)
1.1 Take-off
All departing aircraft should apply ICAO PANS-OPS (Doc 8168) Volume 1 Noise Abatement Take-off Climb Procedures as follows:
1. Noise Abatement Take-off Climb Procedure One (NADP 1)
Thrust reduction at 1000 ft or 1500 ft above the airport elevation recommended.
1.2 Approach
1. Delayed Flap Setting Procedures
All arriving aircraft shall apply delayed flap approach procedure as follows:

a. When Runway 14 in use:
- After intercepting LLZ, lower gear.
- Maintain intermediate flap until FAF. (Refer to AIP Republic of Korea, AIP AD 2.22.1.2 Speed Control)
- At FAF, set flaps for landing and establish final approach speed
b. When Runway 32 in use:
- After 7 ILS/DME (8 DME FR KIP), lower gear.
- Maintain intermediate flap until FAF. (Refer to AIP Republic of Korea, AIP AD 2.22.1.2 Speed Control)
- At FAA, set flaps for landing and establish final approach speed.

2. Aircraft unable to comply with this procedure for any reason should inform ATC.

3. Exception
Procedures described in the provisions 1 and 2 need not be complied with, for aircraft who have passed the IAF (for RWY 32) or intercept the LLZ (for RWY 14) in adverse operating conditions such as the following:

a. If the runway is not clear and dry, i.e. it is adversely affected by snow, slush, ice, water or other substances;
b. In conditions when the ceiling is lower than 500ft above AGL, or when the horizontal visibility is less than 1.9 KM;
c. When the cross wind component, including gusts, exceeds 15KT
d. When the tail wind component, including gusts, exceeds 5KT
e. When wind shear has been reported or forecasted.
1.4. Starting check only is available between 1400 UTC to 2100 UTC.

1.5. Aircraft flying along the VFR route for P73 shall maintain at or above 1500 ft while in GIMPO control zone for noise abatement and use caution for traffic approaching runway 32 at Gimpo Airport.

1.6 Steep Climb Departure Procedures

To reduce aircraft noise on initial climb aircraft required to comply with at least 9% climb gradient until 4000 ft as specified in SEL 1E (RWY 14L/R), SEL 1X, SOT 1X, DAPTO 1X(RWY32L/R). If unable to comply with climb gradient aircraft is required to notify ATC prior to departure and comply with climb gradient for obstacle clearance or ATC purposes.
