NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

See AIP UK for details

The following procedures may be departed from only to the extent necessary for avoiding immediate danger and for complying with ATC instructions.

1. Noise Abatement Procedures - All Aircraft

a) Operators of all aircraft using the airport are to ensure that their operations are conducted in a manner calculated to cause the least disturbance practicable in areas surrounding the airport.

b) Where the surface wind is clam, jet movements when possible should use Runway 26 for arrivals and Runway 08 for departures, particularly at night.

c ) At night the circuit heights will be increased to 1500 ft aal.

d ) The use of Runway 08/26 for circuit training at night is prohibited after 2359 local time.

e ) Aircraft shall not execute in flight turns within the Airport Boundary unless otherwise instructed by ATC.

2. Noise Abatement Procedures - Aircraft of 5700 kg MTOW or less

Runway 08
a) All pilots should arrange their flight so as to minimize noise disturbance. Pilots should not carry out maneuvers which attract attention to their aircraft.

b) Aircraft landing on Runways 08 shall follow a descent path that will not result in it being below the visual approach path as indicated by the PAPI.

2. Noise Abatement Procedures - Aircraft of more than 5700 kg MTOW

Arrivals:
a) Jet aircraft must not join the FAT to any runway at a height less of then 1500 ft (QFE), except that jet aircraft carrying out visual circuit training may descend from circuit height on base leg and join the FAT not less than 1000 ft (QFE).

b) Propeller driven aircraft of more than 5700 kg MTOW must not join the FAT to any runway at a height of less then 1000 ft (QFE).

c) Unless otherwise instructed by ATC, aircraft using the ILS in IMC or VMC shall not descent below the heights specified above before intercepting the glide path nor thereafter fly below it. Aircraft approaching without assistance from ILS shall follow a descent path which will not result in it being at any time lower than the approach path which would be followed by an aircraft using the ILS glide path.

Departures:
a) Runway 26: Departing aircraft maintain the runway center line until passing 3 DME EGT.

b) Runway 08: Departing aircraft maintain the runway center line until passing 3 DME EGT.
