NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES
|See AIP Germany ENR 1.5 for details of noise abatement
Aircraft licensed in
accordance with ICAO Annex 16, Chapter 2:
Operation within the European Union is not permitted since April
For aircraft licensed in accordance with ICAO Annex 16,
Chapter 3 as well as B737-200 as far as the noise levels for takeoff
pursuant to ICAO Annex 16, Chapter 3 have provably been reached
by supplementary equipment:
|Takeoff to 1500 feet AGL
Climb at V2 + 10 KT (or as limited by body angle).
|At 1500 feet AGL
Reduce power to not less than climb power.
Acceleration during climb and retraction of flaps
Normal transition to en-route climb
Reverse thrust other than idle thrust shall only be used to
an extent necessary for safety reasons.
Pilots should arrange their flight so as to leave the initial approach
fix at a speed which permits operation of the aircraft in clean
configuration. This speed should be maintained until reaching a
distance of approximately 12 NM from touchdown. For this portion
of the approach, an indicated airspeed of 210 kt +/- 10 kt is recommended
unless a higher airspeed is required for performance reasons.
The subsequent portion of the approach up to a point shortly prior
to the Outer Marker should be flown at an airspeed of 160 kt +/-
10 kt using an intermediate flap setting as appropriate for the
type of aircraft concerned with the landing gear retracted. This
phase will normally include the transition from level flight to
descent on the glide path which should be intercepted at a height
of not lower than 3000 ft above touchdown zone elevation.
Landing configuration should be established shortly prior to or
over the Outer Marker, i.e. at this time the landing gear should
be extended, the flaps set for landing and the aircraft stabilized
at a safe approach speed.
Reverse thrust other than idle thrust shall only be used to an extent
necessary for safety reasons.
CONTINUOUS DESCENT ARRIVAL
|A new CDA procedure is published and effective since Feb
2009. During off peak times and during night an aircraft can be
cleared by ATC with that new procedure.
See German AIP AD 2 – EDDM 3-1-9 till 12 AIRAC – AMDT1
Fuel -Saving and Noise-Reducing ILS Approach Procedures (based on
For the purpose of fuel-saving and noise abatement during approach,
the following procedure is announced. It may be requested by the
pilot or offered by the controller. It can be performed only in
connection with an ILS approach.
2.1 Aircraft will be guided by Approach Control by means of radar
vectoring and will be cleared for a continuous descent to the
intermediate approach level in such a way that after reaching
this intermediate approach level on the localizer course, about
one NM will be left for intercepting the glide path in level flight.
This intermediate approach segment will serve to reduce speed.
It is assumed that the continuous descent will be performed at
a rate of 300 ft/NM (descent angle approx.3) down to the cleared
If for specific reasons (e.g. separation, airspace structure,
obstacles), levels above the intermediate approach level have
to be assigned first, these restrictions will be lifted early
enough to allow a continuous descent at a rate of 300 ft/NM.
Details about the distance from touchdown will be transmitted
to the pilot together with the clearance for descent and usually
at 20, 15 and 10 NM from touchdown. This should enable the pilot
to correct the rate of descent as required.
2.2 In case of traffic situations allowing no CDA (e.g. approaches
of aircraft with different performance data), pilots will be informed
by the notice NO CDA POSSIBLE. In this case, approaches must be
conducted according to previous procedures.
3. Noise Abatement
On approaches in accordance with the CDA, pilots are expected
to continue using the approach techniques recommended for noise
abatement in the vicinity of airports.
4. The CDA Procedure may be used at the following airports:
Stuttgart - RWY 25 (Zwischenanflughohe/intermediate approach altitude
Nurnberg - RWY 10 (Zwischenanflughohe/intermediate approach altitude
RWY 28 (Zwischenanflughohe/intermediate approach altitude 4000)
Hamburg - RWY 23 (Zwischenanflughohe/intermediate approach altitude
RWY 05 (Zwischenanflughohe/intermediate approach altitude 3000)
RWY 15 (Zwischenanflughohe/intermediate approach altitude 3000)
Hannover - RWY 27L (Zwischenanflughohe/intermediate approach altitude
RWY 27R (Zwischenanflughoehe/intermediate approach altitude 2000)
RWY 09L (Zwischenanflughoehe/intermediate approach altitude 2000)
Munich - RWY 26L/R (Zwischenanflughohe/intermediate approach altitude
RWY 08L/R (Zwischenanflughohe/intermediate approach altitude 5000)

cases and if there is a particular traffic-related interest,
such flights may be planned up to 2400.
22.214.171.124.2 Delayed landings and take-offs in the period

noise contour level for purposes of land use planning. Therefore
the data of four noise level monitors are used.
Under the Act Against Aircraft Noise, monitoring is required
at all major German airports. This airport has 16 monitoring sites
and 1 mobile stations.
The system will monitor not only each takeoff and landing, but
is also able to perform actual flight path tracking and computerized
plotting. Data will determine noise levels for different aircraft
