NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

It is recommended that only pilots familiar with the area utilize the airport during Night Hours, due to the high terrain to the South East. Five hazard beacons are located either side of Ladysmith Harbour and it is recommended that the PAPI and all five are operational for night operations.
