NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

See UK AIP for details

a. All aircraft inbound or outbound from this airport are required to conform to the following procedures, not withstanding that these may at any time be departed from to the extent necessary for avoiding immediate danger:

i. Every operator of aircraft using the airport shall ensure at all times that aircraft are operated in a manner calculated to cause the least disturbance practicable in areas surrounding the airport.

ii. After take-off every jet aircraft shall, in addition to complying with the Noise Preferential Routeings specified for each runway, be operated in such a way that it is at a height of not less than 1000 ft aal, at the point nearest to the relevant noise monitoring terminal (AD 2-EGCC-3-

2). Details of noise monitoring locations and performance are obtainable from the Environment Department. (Tel: +44 161 489 3504
Email: environment@manairport.co.uk).

iii. Every jet aircraft using the airport shall, after take-off or 'go-around' maintain, after passing the relevant monitoring point, a rate of climb of at least 500 ft per minute at power settings which will ensure progressively decreasing noise levels at points on the ground under the flight path beyond the monitoring point.

iv. Unless otherwise authorised by ATC, aircraft using the ILS in IMC and VMC shall not descend below 2000 ft before intercepting the glidepath, not thereafter fly below it. An aircraft approaching without assistance from ILS or radar shall follow a descent path which will not result in its being at any time lower than the approach path which would be followed by an aircraft using the ILS glidepath.

For visual approaches, or following a visual circuit, to Runway 23R/23L the following additional limitations apply:

1. Jet aircraft shall not join the final approach at a height of less than 1500 ft aal

2. Propeller driven aircraft whose MTWA exceeds 5700 kg shall not join the final approach at a distance of less than 3 nm from the landing threshold and at a height of less than 1000 ft aal.

v. To minimise disturbance in areas adjacent to the airport, Captains are requested to avoid the use of reverse thrust after landing, consistent with safe operation of the aircraft, especially between 2300 and 0700 (local time).

vi. The Noise Preferential Routes specified in the following table are compatible with ATC requirements and the tracks are to be flown by all departing aircraft until the level defined in the table below is reached except:

1. aircraft whose MTWA does not exceed 5700 kg;

2. those aircraft instructed by ATC to make Early Turns In order to expedite traffic flow, such instructions may be issued during the period 0700-2300 local time, to propeller aircraft whose MTWA does not exceed 23000 kg and the following jet aircraft types: BAe 146 (Avro RJ Series), Canadair Regional Jet, Embraer EMB-135/145
3. unless otherwise instructed by ATC or deviations are required in the interests of safety.

The use of these routes is supplementary to noise abatement take-off techniques. After take-off, pilots should ensure that they are at a minimum
height of 500 ft aal before commencing any turn.

Note: See AIP UK for table in Noise Abatement Procedures for route details.

vii. Unless otherwise required by ATC, Runway 23R/23L shall be used for all movements when there is a head wind component and when a tail wind component is not greater than 5 kt on either runway or at 2000 ft.

viii. Link Alpha should be used for all jet aircraft and all large propeller-driven aircraft departing from Runway 05L. However between the hours of 0600 and 2330 (local), any aircraft may depart from Links AG, AF and B subject to operational requirements by ATC/pilots. Between the hours of 2330 and 0600 (local), all jet aircraft and large propeller-driven aircraft shall depart from the most westerly link available

ix. Every aircraft using the airport shall, after take-off or 'go around' be operated in the quietest possible manner, aircraft exceeding 90 dB(A) (103 PNdB) by day (0700-2300 local time) and 83 dB(A) (96 PNdB) by night (2300-0700 local time) at the relevant monitoring points will be subject to a penalty of £750 sterling by day and £750 sterling by night plus an additional £150 sterling for each decibel thereafter.

b. In the interests of noise abatement, certain restrictions are imposed on night jet flights at this airport; operators concerned are advised to obtain details from the Airfield Duty Manager

c. ATC will approve idle ground engine runs. A safety man must be positioned behind the aircraft to warn road traffic. Permission for ground testing in excess of idle must be requested through the Airfield Duty Manager, Ext 3331, at all times. All engine tests above idle must commence in the Engine Test Bay. Times of operation are 0600-2300. Engine testing on the open airfield will only be allowed for Chapter 2 aircraft between 0900 and 1700 and Chapter 3 aircraft between 0600 and 2300. Propeller driven aircraft are to be classified as Chapter 3

d. Training flights by all aircraft shall be subject to the approval of the Airfield Duty Manager

e. Non-standard departure instructions will not normally be issued between 2300 and 0700.

f. Night Jet Restrictions/Allocations

i. Runway 23L/05R will not normally be used between 2200-0600 (local) except when Runway 23R/05L is closed for maintenance

ii. Manchester Airport operates a night Jet Policy restricting operations of certain types of aircraft during the periods of 2300-0700 hours (local).

iii. The penalty scheme will be administered by a panel set up under the auspices of the Scheduling Committee which includes members of the Airlines Operators Committee and the Airport Authority

iv. Records of night infringements for this purpose will be available to the co-ordinators at the IATA scheduling conferences for summer seasons.

v. Between the hours of 2300 to 0600 local, visual approaches will not be permitted. Aircraft shall be positioned, by radar, to join the final approach at a distance of not less than 7 nm from touchdown. This restriction does not apply to non jet aircraft whose MTWA is 5700 kg or below

g. Scheduling Restrictions
i. Between 2330 and 0559 (local) QC4 aircraft will not be scheduled to depart.

h. Operational Restrictions
i. Between 2300 and 0659 (local) QC16 and QC8 aircraft will not be allowed to arrive or depart, except in case of emergency or where exempt.

i. Jet and turbo-prop aircraft approaching Manchester Airport are expected to minimise noise disturbance by use of low power, low drag and (during the period 2200-0559 (local)) continuous descent approach procedures.

NOISE MONITORING SYSTEM
THE MANCHESTER AIRPORT NOISE AND TRACK INFORMATION SYSTEM (MANTIS)

Air Transport Movements relating to Manchester Airport are monitored using the Manchester Airport Noise and Track Information System (MANTIS). The Manchester Airport Noise and Track Information System is based upon Lochard's Global Environment Management System (GEMS). MANTIS gathers noise data from noise monitors strategically located around the airport, receives flight track information from the Secondary Surveillance Radar and flight plan information from the (Manchester) Airport Management Operational Support System (AMOSS). Additional inputs such as complaints, weather and accurate time information complete the System. Track, plan and time and some noise data are gathered in real time with other noise data provided at regular ‘dial-up’ times. Data is correlated automatically, enabling users to examine details of a noise event, and the source of that noise event, within minutes of occurrence.

MANTIS is a sophisticated noise and track monitoring system combining radar, noise & air traffic control data, to give a variety of information to the user. The System checks and records every aircraft within 30km of the airport up to a height of 12,000 feet and monitors aircraft noise and where the course flown 24 hours a day. MANTIS automatically registers breaches of the noise limits and identifies aircraft that stray from the Preferred Noise Routes (PNR’s) prior to attaining the appropriate release altitude.

Noise Monitoring Terminals (NMT)
The following noise monitoring terminals are used for infringement/rebate purposes.
