NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

1. Reaffirmation of Calm Wind Runway 13R & 13L

2. A/C 91-53 Noise Abatement Departure Procedures

Jet aircraft originally designed for air carrier use will be requested to use the AC 91-53 noise abatement procedure.

Departure Procedures:
Jet aircraft for general aviation use, use NBAA close-in departure procedures or as specified in flight manuals of specific aircraft types whenever possible.

3. Takeoff Thrust Application

The application of full thrust while taxiing or before fully aligned with runway centerline tends to increase noise complaints near runway end. As a voluntary measure, all airport users are asked to reduce taxi throttle settings whenever practical. Thank you

4. Three visual approach and departure corridors have been defined for helicopters using the airport. A copy of the procedures and map is available by calling Airport Operations at (760) 318-3820 or at PSP’s web site www.palmspringsairport.com.
