NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES
See AIP Poland for details.

Departure from RWY 15, 29 and RWY 33 shall be performed in accordance with the following procedure (Procedure B, Doc 8168, "Aircraft Operations", Vol. 1):

Takeoff to 300 m above airport elevation


Takeoff power
Takeoff flaps
Climb at V2 + (20 to 40) km/h
At 300 m maintaining a positive rate of climb, accelerate to zero flap minimum safe maneuvering speed (VZF) retracting flap on schedule; thereafter reduce thrust, consistent with the following:

- for high by-pass ratio engines reduce to normal climb power/thrust;

- for low by-pass ratio engines, reduce power/thrust to below normal climb thrust but not less than that necessary to maintain the final take-off engine-out climb gradient;

- for airplanes with slow flap retracting reduce power/thrust at an intermediate
flap setting.
At 900 m: accelerate smoothly to en-route climb speed.
NOTE: Airplanes such as supersonic airplanes not using wing flaps for take-off should reduce thrust before attaining 300 m but not lower than 150 m.
The following procedure is recommended for departures from RWY 11
(procedure A, Doc 8168, “Aircraft Operations”, Vol. 1):
Take-off and climbing to 300 m above aerodrome elevation: - take-off power;
- take-off flap;
- climb at a speed of V2 + (20 to 40) km/h
At 300 m: maintaining a positive rate of climb, accelerate to zero flap minimum safe maneuvering speed (Vzf) retracting flap on schedule; thereafter reduce thrust, consistent with the following:

- for high by-pass ratio engines reduce to normal climb power/thrust

- for low by-pass ratio engines, reduce power/thrust to below normal climb thrust but not less than that necessary to maintain the final take-off engine-out climb gradient.

- for airplanes with slow flap retracting reduce power/thrust at an intermediate flap setting
From 300 m to 900 m: continue climb at speed not greater than Vzf+20 to 40) km/h.
At 900 m: accelerate smoothly to en-route climb speed
Note: Airplanes such as supersonic airplanes not using wing flaps for take-off should reduce thrust before attaining 300 m but not lower than 150 m.
The following procedure is recommended for departures from RWY 11 (Procedure A, Procedures for Air Navigation Services - Aircraft Operations (Doc 8168) Vol. 1 - Flight Procedures):
Take-off and climbing to 450 m above airport elevation - take-off power/thrust
- take-off flaps
- climb at a speed of V2 + (20-40) km/h or as limited by body angle.
At 450 m - reduce thrust to not less than climb power/thrust
From 450m to 900 m - climb at V2 + (20-40) km/h
At 900 m - accelerate smoothly to en-route climb speed with flap retraction on schedule.

CONTINUOUS DESCENT ARRIVAL (CDA)
Continuous Descent Approach (CDA) is recommended aircraft operating technique in which an arriving aircraft descends from an optimal position with minimum thrust ad avoids level flight to the extent permitted by safe operations of the aircraft and in compliance with published procedures and ATC instructions.

The air for CDA is to assist pilots to optimize aircraft approach profiles in order to reduce noise impact on the ground and where possible, reduce fuel use and atmospheric emissions.

CDA Technique:
1. Arrange descent to pass 7000 ft AMSL within 25 track miles to touch down.

2. Expect track miles information or base leg information from ATC at or above 7000 ft AMSL.

3. If track miles or base let information received, commence continuous descent to FAP/FAF.

4. At or before downwind position maintain IAS 200 kt or minimum clean speed, whichever is greater.

ATC R/T example at or above 7000 ft AMSL
- 25 track miles to touchdown, when ready descend.
- Expect base let after/before/between WPT.
- Expect full procedure

PREFERENTIAL RUNWAYS

The following preferential runway system has been established for the airport:

Arrivals:
1. Rwy 33,
2. RWY 11,
3. RWY 15,
4. RWY 29.

Departures:
1. RWY 29,
2. RWY 15,
3. RWY 33,
4. RWY 11.

Between hours 20.00 - 04.00 (21.00 - 05.00 respectively in winter time) if atmospheric (and or technical) conditions permit, departures and arrivals at WARSZAWA/Okecie aerodrome will be performed on RWY 15/33. In order to maintain the lowest possible noise level it is highly recommended to avoid extensive reversal thrust and usage of full length of the runway after landing. Crews are requested to reduced take-off power by usage of full length of the runway respectively.

Noise abatement shall not be the determining factor in runway nomination under the following circumstances:

a) if the runway is not clear and dry, i.e. it is adversely affected by snow, slush, ice or water, or by mud, rubber, oil or other substances;

b) for landing in conditions when the ceiling is lower than 150 m above aerodrome elevation or for take-off or landing when the horizontal visibility is less than 1.9 km;

c) when the cross-wind component, including gusts, exceeds 28 km/h;

d) when the tail-wind component, including gusts, exceeds 9 km/h;

e) when wind shear has been reported or forecast or when thunderstorms are expected to affect the approaches or departures.

Exceptions to the above rules will be applied only in cases of emergency in order to shorten the arrival route.

CHAPTER 2 RESTRICTIONS
Chapter 2 airplanes >75,000 lbs are banned from operating at airports in EU Member States as of April 1, 2002.

CHAPTER 2 PHASEOUT
As from May 2004 it is prohibited to perform flight operations at aerodromes situated in the territory of the Republic of Poland by airplanes not complying with the noise requirements prescribed according to the provisions of Chapter 3 of Annex 16, Volume I, Part II to the Convention on International Civil Aviation. )Legal basis" Regulation of the Minister of Infrastructure of 19 May 2004 on the operation prohibition for aircraft not complying with the environmental protection requirements related to noise emissions (OJL No 103/1089, 01.05.2004) implementing Council Directive 92/14/EEC of 2 March 1992 on the limitation of operation of aero planes covered by Part II, Chapter 2, Volume 1 of Annex 16 to the Convention on International Civil Aviation (OJ EC No L 76, 23.03.1992))

The prohibition applies to all civil subsonic jet aero planes, performing flight operations to/from the Republic of Poland, with a maximum take0off mass of 34,000 kg or more or with a maximum internal accommodation, according to the airplane type certificate, consisting of more than 19 passenger seats, excluding any seats for crew only.

This prohibition does not apply to aero planes entered on EU Member States registers after 1 November 1990.

Pursuant to Article 5 (1) of the a/a/m/ Regulation the President of the Civil Aviation Office may issue a permit to perform temporary flight operation from/to the Republic of Poland by an aero plane certificated under Chapter 2 if:

1) flight operations performed with the aero plane in question do not justify, due to their exceptional nature, the applying of the flight prohibition to that particular aero plane (e.g. rescue flights, humanitarian aid fights);

2) the aero plane performs non-revenue flights for the purpose of alterations, repair or maintenance thereof.

In such cases the carrier may apply to the CAO President for an appropriate permit, submitting the following data:

- airplane type and identification marks
- type of operations, substantiating their exceptional nature
- name of Polish airport to which the flights are going to be performed
- period of validity of the permit to be issued
- planned landing and take-off times.

These operations are allowed to be performed exclusively at airports, where aircraft noise is not burdensome to the local community and not during night hours.

CHAPTER 3 RESTRICTIONS - NONE
