ENGINE RUN-UP RESTRICTIONS
June 10, 1999

Port Authority Rules and Regulations require that aircraft engines shall be started and warmed up only in locations designated for such purposes by LaGuardia Airport's General Manager. In addition, no jet, turboprop, or piston engine shall be run-up except in areas authorized by the General Manager or designee (see attached diagram).

The following revised procedures will govern aircraft engine maintenance "trim check" run-ups of all aircraft at LaGuardia Airport.

1. No operator may run-up more than one aircraft at a time unless approved by the Airport's General Manager or designee.

2. No jet engine shall be run-up above "part power" (not exceeding 80% power) for more than one minute at a time and not more than one engine at a time between the hours of 0700 and 2200.

3. Between 2200 and 0700 hours, no jet engine shall be run-up above "part power" (not exceeding 80%. power) for more than a 30 second duration and not more than one engine at a time.

4. No jet engine run-ups for aircraft maintenance will be permitted at take-off power day or night.

5. Aircraft will be positioned as far away as practical from residential communities unless otherwise directed by the Control Tower and Airport Duty Manager.

6. No engine run-ups should be scheduled between the hours of midnight (0000) and 0500 unless absolutely necessary.

7. Authorized run-up locations will be:

a. T/W "R” north of R/W 13/31. One site with ground markings (white paint) and legend "RUN-UP" is positioned on a 160 degree heading.

b. T/W "CC" has one run-up triangle positioned at 220 degrees between T/W's "E” and "G” and has white ground markings with legend "RUN-UP" on centerline. (A 040 degree position should not be used on T/W "CC".)

c. T/W "BB" has two run-up triangles, one positioned at 040 degrees, the other at 220 degrees located between T/W's "E” and “G”; both triangles have white markings with legend "RUN-UP" on centerline.

d. Use of any other site or requests for headings must be pre-coordinated and authorized by the Port Authority Duty Manager.

8. All aircraft on the movement area are requested to monitor the ground control frequency at all times.

9. Vehicles will be permitted to accompany aircraft (under power or tow) to the run-up areas only with prior permission from the Port Authority Airport Duty Manager and pre-coordinated with the Control Tower.

10. No aircraft will be permitted to be towed across an active runway without prior permission from the Port Authority Airport Duty Manager and pre-coordinated with the Control Tower.

11. a. Aircraft engine maintenance checks at the Central Terminal Building, Delta Terminal, USAir Terminal, USAir Shuttle, Delta Shuttle, and the Marine Air Terminal will be restricted to one engine at idle power not to exceed five-minute duration. There must be a ground attendant at the rear of the aircraft during engine checks. When this occurs, the airline must advise the affected air carrier across the alley.

b. Aircraft with an inoperative APU must adhere to the AOB procedures described under the following subject:

LaGuardia Airport - Positive Alleyway Control and Push Back/Start Up Procedures at the CTB Gates and Taxiway "A”.

c. Exceptions to "a” or “b" must be approved by the Airport Duty Manager at the Port Authority Operations Office on 533-3701 or extension 3701.

12. Aircraft parked along the west side of R/W 22, including authorized handstand parking areas will not be permitted to utilize APU's between the hours of 2300-0630, except in conjunction with preflight checks and engine start-ups prior to departure; and this may not exceed a twenty minute duration.

Restricted areas include the following:

a. East and West sides of T/W "Y" between T/W’s "CY" and “D".
b. South side of T/W “D" between T/W’s "BB" and "Y".
c. North side of T/W “F" between T/W's "BB" and "Y".
d. Five (5) tower area.
e. Northwest of Taxiway “DD".
f. The Marine Air Terminal ramp at the Police Emergency Garage.

NOISE MONITORING SYSTEM

Two noise monitoring sites:
Site 1: Flushing, N.Y. 2.9 miles from brake release R/W 13
Site 2: Jackson Heights, N.Y. 1.9 miles from brake release R/W 22

The noise monitoring system is operational 24 hours a day to monitor all jet aircraft take-offs and monitor compliance with a departure noise limit of 112 PNdB. See Noise Level Limits.

FLIGHT TRACK MONITORING SYSTEM
Airport Noise and Operations Monitoring System (ANOMS)

NOISE LEVEL LIMITS - DEPARTURE NOISE LIMITS
Noise produced by a departing aircraft shall not exceed 112PNdB (perceived noise level in decibels) as measured by noise monitors located in the community nearest to the runway of departure under the flight path of the departing aircraft. At John F. Kennedy International Airport, an aircraft operator is assessed a monetary charge of $250.00 for each aircraft departure that violates this rule.

STAGE 2 PHASEOUT
U.S. Stage 2 Phase out complete as of 12/31/1999 (CFR Part 91.801). Stage 2 airplanes >75,000 lbs are prohibited from operating at airports within the 48 contiguous states.

STAGE 3 RESTRICTIONS
Aircraft operators are requested to voluntarily not schedule flights between the hours of 2200 and 0700.

Effective January 1, 2000 all aircraft 75,000 pounds and over must be certified Stage 3 or better noise level.
