NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

Minimum Noise Routes and Procedures

Operators of all aircraft using the airport shall ensure at all times that aircraft are operated in a manner calculated to cause the least disturbance practicable in the areas surrounding the airport. The following procedures and routings apply to all aircraft whether landing or taking off or making a missed approach in either VMC or IMC.

a. On departure from any runway all propeller driven aircraft must climb straight ahead to at least 600ft aal before turning. On departure from Runway 24 propeller driven aircraft requiring a left turn shall, after passing 600ft aal, maintain a track of 190 degrees to the north bank of the River Thames, or until
Detling DME 13 nm or les, before turning onto the required
track.

b. Jet aircraft departing from any runway shall climb straight ahead to a minimum height of 1000ft aal before turning.

c. Between the hours of 2300-0700(winter), 2200-0600(summer), aircraft with a MTOW exceeding 5700kg on departure from Runway 24 must climb straight ahead to a minimum height of 1500ft before turning left or right

d. When making a visual approach to either runway, all aircraft of 5.7 tonnes or more AUW should intercept the runway extended centerline at a minimum range of 2nm from touchdown at a height not below the PAPI indicated approach slope of 3 degrees on runway 06 and 3.5 degrees on runway 24.

e. The routings and procedures specified above are compatible with normal Air Traffic Control requirements. In individual cases they may be varied by Air Traffic Control when necessary. The use of the procedures is supplementary to standard noise abatement take-off techniques as used by piston, turbo-prop and turbo-jet aircraft. Any of the above requirements may be departed from to the extent necessary for the avoidance of immediate danger.
