NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES
East Departures:
In January 1994, the FAA issued a Record of Decision (ROD) approving
an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for major improvements at
Phoenix Sky Harbor including the addition of a third runway (7R/25L).
Initiated in 1990, the study was fraught with delays because of opposition
from the City of Tempe. Located less than a 1/2 mile east of the airport,
Tempe was vehemently opposed to the third runway project, and upon issuance of the ROD, filed litigation against the FAA. To minimize further delays
and ensure construction of the third runway, the City of Phoenix intervened
and entered into an Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) with the City of Tempe.
The IGA contains various provisions including the requirement that Phoenix
acquire and maintain a Noise and Flight Track Monitoring System (NFTMS) in
order to monitor, notify, and report compliance with noise abatement procedures.
Phoenix is also required to provide system access to the City of Tempe.
In order to comply with the IGA, the City of Phoenix began a formal notification
program for the 4 DME noise abatement procedure on June 15, 1998. When departing to the east, all jet aircraft are required to fly 4 DME from the PHX VORTAC prior to initializing any turns. Noise abatement compliance is achieved when an aircraft passes through an imaginary 5,550 foot gate located at 4 DME. Departing jet aircraft that do not pass through the 4 DME gate are sent a Notice of Deviation (NOD). Air Carrier compliance statistics are then compiled and reported monthly and yearly. (see exhibit below depicting the location of the 4DME)
