NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

Departure Procedures

Runways 07, 14, 32 - Climb on runway heading to 3000' before proceeding on course.

Arrival Procedures - VFR and Visual Approach
VFR
1. Circuit height 2500' (weather permitting);
2. Right hand circuits on runways 07 and 14;
3. Maintain 2500' as long as practicable before commencing descent;
4. Remain on or above glide slope or assumed 3 degree glide path.
Visual Approaches
ATS may provide vectors direct to the final approach fix aircraft must:

1. Intercept final at or outside the final approach fix.
2. Remain on or above ILS glide slope or assumed 3 degree glide path.
3. Maintain the last assigned altitude until established on final.
CONTINUOUS DESCENT ARRIVAL (CDA)

Per NAV Canada:

In Canada we have 20 airports with RNAV STARS which are basically constant descent arrivals into the terminal areas (from assigned FL to below 5000’). Depending on the traffic, there would be no restrictions until landing.
At our major and secondary airports, CDAs are used at all times for descent to the terminal (from assigned FL to below 10,000 and below – The constant descent is then revised by ATC depending on traffic, metering requirements, aircraft equipage).

At most secondary airports and tertiary airports, aircraft are cleared for the approach. This is basically a CDA controlled by the pilot until landing, unless ATC needs to apply a restriction (level off) due to inbound/outbound IFR traffic (assuming no surveillance capability).

AIRPORT CURFEWS

Restriction:

Summer - May 1 through September 30.

The use of runway 32 for departure by turbojet aircraft on technical stops or charter operations is not permitted between the hours of 2300 and 0700 local time daily. Under extenuating circumstances, permission to operate during restricted hours may be granted (passenger flights only) through prior authorization by the Airport General Manager or his designated official.

PREFERENTIAL RUNWAYS
Note: The information below is for historical purposes since the phase out of Chapter 2 airplanes in Canada is complete.

Controllers will designate runways to divert as many take-offs and landings as possible, consistent with safety of operations, from flight over residential areas adjacent to the airport. Pilots should be prepared to use runways other than 32 for take-offs and pilots of non-Chapter 3 aircraft should be prepared to use runways other than 14 for landings when conditions permit the use of such other runways.

NOISE MITIGATION/LAND USE PLANNING PROGRAM INFORMATION

Status
Sound Insulation (Residences and Public Buildings)
-

According to information provided by Transport Canada, building code requirements due to the cold climate have been in place since the early 1970s and include solid core doors, weather stripping, double glazed windows and a high R rating of attic and wall insulation, so there is no need for airport to have sound insulation programs.

However, for new residential development located outside the Airport Operating Influence Zone (AOIZ) but within the 25 composite noise contour, the following conditions are strongly recommended:

The preparation and implementation of a noise impact study prepared and certified by a Profession Engineer with expertise in the subject of acoustics related to land use planning, such study to be to the satisfaction of the City and to comply with MOEE LU-131, Noise Assessment Criteria in Land Use Planning;

Or,

The implementation of the Prescribed Measures to Address Aircraft Noise, dated July 1998 and as may be revised from time to time.

For new high-rise apartment type dwelling and noise-sensitive developments located outside the Airport Operating Influence Zone (AOIZ) but within the 25 composite noise contour, and also for commercial development or potential infilling of residential land use within the AOIZ, the following condition is strongly recommended:

The preparation and implementation of a noise impact study prepared and certified by a Profession Engineer with expertise in the subject of acoustics related to land use planning, such study to be to the satisfaction of the City and to comply with MOEE LU-131, Noise Assessment Criteria in Land Use Planning.

CHAPTER 2 RESTRICTIONS

Per Canadian Aviation Regulations:
Requirements

602.150 (1) No person shall operate a subsonic turbo-jet aeroplane that has a maximum certificated take-off weight of more than 34 000 kg (74,956 pounds) to or from an aerodrome other than Gander International Airport unless the aeroplane meets the noise emission standards set out in Chapter 3 or 4 of Volume I, Aircraft Noise, of Annex 16 to the Convention.

CHAPTER 2 PHASEOUT
The phase out of Chapter 2 airplanes >75,000 in Canada was complete as of April 1, 2002. Those airplanes are ban from operating in Canada with the exception of a very limited number of exemptions for aircraft operating to northern and remote locations.
