NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

Departing

Runway 36:
Climb straight out for about 3/4 mile. When you're just abeam a white-fence pasture, turn left to 320 degrees, track the center of the meadow until you reach the shoreline. Please avoid fly over of the populated areas to both the left and the right of that course.

Runway 18:
No left turn out under 7,500 MSL. The smaller hill straight ahead has an elevation of 6,640 plus up to 100 foot trees around the houses. Track the river to the golf course. Circle and climb to 7,500 over the golf course. If not able to climb to 7,500 call the tower (no control tower personnel as of 10/1/2004) reverse course, and land. Caution: Downdrafts exist west of the golf course near the mountains.

Density Altitude Caution:Depart at as light a weight as practical. Please double check weight and balance, takeoff distance, rate of climb and climb gradient figures. Instructors are available for free consultation. Density Altitude readouts available from ASOS at 124.725 MHz.


CONTINUOUS DESCENT ARRIVAL (CDA) - NONE

AIRPORT CURFEWS

NOISE LEVEL LIMITS
The noise limits are:
Nighttime:(2000-0800) 77.1 dBA (arrival and departure)
Daytime: (0800-2000)

84dBA on arrival
80dBA on departure
86 dBA arrival - transports with more than 60 seats

Noise levels are measured on every departure and arrival.

Commercial Aircraft:
If an airline exceeds the noise level limits in AC36-3H, they are required to arrange for a noise test at the airport. Operations are based on quarterly averaging.

Private Jets Single Event Monitoring:

1st offense $1000 fine or ban, waived if on noise testing.
2nd offense $5000 or ban,
Subsequent offense $2500 or ban.

The noise monitors are located at the FAR 36 locations. The noise levels were determined by the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency. The methodology of determination is via AC36-3.

STAGE 2 RESTRICTIONS
Stage 2 are banned. However they can be tested to qualify for operations at the airport.
Stage 2 airplanes >75,000 lbs are prohibited from operating at airports within the 48 contiguous states.

STAGE2 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
As applicable per noise limits.

COMMENTS
Any aircraft may apply for noise testing at the airport. AC36-3 is used to determine if an aircraft needs to be put on the testing/monitoring program. Any normal flight, charter, private, counts as testing.
