Turbojets departing Runways 25R and 25L should maintain runway heading until 3 DME before executing a left turn, and 4 DME before executing a right turn.

Turbojets departing Runway 19R and 19L should maintain runway heading until 3 DME before executing any turns.

Turbojets departing Runway 1R and 1L should maintain runway heading until 2 DME before executing any turns.

Turbojets departing Runway 7L and 7R should maintain runway heading until 7 DME before executing any turns.
RNAV procedures have been developed to mimic these classic departure procedures.

NOISE MITIGATION/LAND USE PLANNING PROGRAM INFORMATION
An airport Noise Control and Land Use Compatibility (ANCLUC) Study was completed in 1981 and amended in 1983. The first FAR Part 150 was completed in 1988/1989 and updated in 1994. A draft 2005/2006 update was adopted by Clark County on October 3, 2006.

The 2005/2006 update is comprised of three documents. Volume 1 includes the Noise Exposure Map (NEM) report, and contained noise contours for 2004, 2011, and 2017. The NEMs report was submitted to the FAA in December 2006. The FAA approved the 2004 and 2011 NEMs in July 2007. Volume 2 includes the Noise Compatibility Program (NCP) report, and contained thirteen noise abatement measures and nine noise mitigation measures. The NCP report was submitted to the FAA in March 2007. The FAA is reviewing the NCP document. Volume 3 includes a compilation of public comments and responses, and details the extensive outreach programs undertaken during the development of the updated noise study. Volume 3 was submitted to the FAA in December 2006 as part of the NEMs submittal.
