ELEVATION: 815 ft.
The supervisor shall be responsible for ensuring that the
following noise relief procedures are applied:
a. Except during an emergency, all arriving turbojet aircraft
shall not be descended below 6000 feet until they are within:
(1) The geographical confines of FR airspace and inside the
20 mile range marks, or
(2) Within the 20 mile range mark and inside a 45 degree line
extending from the approach end of runways 28L/10R or 28R/10L
b. Category III and turboprop aircraft shall be kept at or
above 4000 feet (IFR) or 3500 feet (VFR) until intercepting
the glideslope or until within 10 flying miles of the landing
c. Visual approaches may be approved and/or initiated, however,
the descent profile shall conform with the National Local Flow
Management Program and descent below altitudes in (a) and (b)the
above will not be issued until the aircraft is within 10 flying
miles of the landing threshold. Turbojet arrival aircraft on
a visual approach shall not be permitted to turn final inside
the final approach fixes i.e.,
(1) GRENS for runway 10L
(2) ARLIG for runway 10R
(3) SUMIE for runway 28L
(4) GOTSL for runway 28R
d. Departing jet aircraft shall not be turned until reaching
an altitude of 3500 feet or a point 5 miles from the departure
end of the runway.
e. Helicopter aircraft utilizing runways 28R or 10L requesting
transition landings shall be required to adjust their traffic
pattern so as to remain within the airport boundaries, South
and West of Interstate 270.
f. In addition to the above, the following shall be utilized
between the hours of 2200-0800 local time:
(1) Unless wind, weather, runway closures, or loss of NAVAIDS
dictate otherwise, runways 28L or 10R shall be assigned to
jet aircraft. Jet aircraft with Stage III engines may use
runway 10L or 28R after 0700.
NOTE: In order to comply with an informal runway use program
the following applies: after the assignment of runway 10R/28L
and the pilot initiates a request for runway 10L/28R, you
may comply with the request, traffic permitting. If a pilot
questions the runway assignment, advise the pilot that the
Airport Authority has determined the runway to be Noise Sensitive
during these times and request the pilot's intentions.
(2) All arriving aircraft shall be kept at or above 4000 feet
(IFR) or 3500 feet (VFR) until intercepting the glideslope
or within 10 flying miles of the landing threshold. Aircraft
below these altitudes shall be kept as high as possible as
long as possible.
(3) Practice approaches for any high noise level type aircraft
shall not be approved unless runways 28L or 10R are used and
the approach will terminate in a full stop - taxi back operation
(4) Helicopter transition landings to runways 28R or 10L shall
not be permitted.
g. To the extent possible, the late AIRNET rush, 0400-0530
LCL, should land to the west and depart to the east
h. During nighttime operations, 10:30 pm to 7:00 am local time,
the following procedures shall be used for departures off runway
(1) Aircraft normally assigned a runway heading shall be
assigned a heading of 100 degrees.
(2) Propeller driven aircraft, conventional or turbo-prop,
shall be turned no further than 15 degrees left or right (085
degrees or 115 degrees). The turn to this heading will begin
at the 2.2 mile fix of the runway 10L DME. If the DME cannot
be used, the aircraft will turn as instructed by the tower.
These headings shall not be altered until the aircraft has
reached 3000 feet MSL or is 3 miles from runway end."

Nighttime Aircraft Maintenance Run-Up Policy
1. This policy replaces all previous Port Columbus International
Airport Aircraft Maintenance Run-Up Policy or Management Directives.
2. All jet aircraft requiring night time maintenance run-ups which
exceed an idle power setting must be taxied to the South Terminal
Apron Run-up Barrier (Barrier A); the Southeast Cargo Run-up Barriers
(Barrier B); or the NETJETS Ramp North Airfield, as appropriate.
2.1 Night time hours are defined as the period between 2200
and 0700 hours.

to verify wind speed and wind direction prior to utilizing the
2.3 Run-ups conducted at Barrier A must not exceed 80 percent
of full power with wind speed of not more than seven knots for
Stage 2,such as the DC-9, B737-200, B727-200 and F28, equipped
with the following engines:

speed of not more than 7 knots for Stage 3 Aircraft such as
the MD-81, MD-82, MD-83, MD-88, B737-300, B737-400, B737-500,

exceed eighty percent (80%) of full power with a wind speed
of not more than seven (7) knots for Stage II aircraft.
2.6 Stage III aircraft full power run-ups may be conducted at
the NETJETS Ramp North Airfield on an as needed basis.
2.7 Run-ups at any barrier must be delayed if the wind speed
exceeds seven (7) knots.
2.8 Maintenance personnel shall also contact the Airport Communications
Center via radio or telephone (239-4029) and request them to
notify Airport Operations (Operations Coordinator) that a run-up
is being performed at Barrier A, B, or the NETJETS Ramp North
Airfield, as appropriate.
3. All jet aircraft parked at a gate position requiring a minor
engine adjustment shall not use a power setting exceeding idle
3.1 All jet aircraft parked at a gate position requiring daytime
engine maintenance run-ups which exceed an idle power setting
may be taxied or towed to Barrier A, South Terminal Apron.
3.2 For most jet aircraft, idle power is defined as no more
than 50 percent of full power.
3.3 Normal engine adjustments may continue to be performed at
or near gate positions or apron parking positions.
3.4 Tower communications will be treated as advisory when aircraft
are in a "non-movement" area.
4. Run-ups at Barrier A must be conducted with the subject engine
positioned at midpoint of the wall, and the aircraft position
parallel (i.e., heading East or West) to the wall, to obtain maximum
effectiveness of the barrier.
4.1 Aircraft positioning may be adjusted up to 20 degrees south
or north from parallel for proper engine trim with respect to
easterly or westerly winds.
4.2 In no case shall the engine test be conducted with the engine
jet blast perpendicular to the barrier wall or the terminal
4.3 The Barrier A position is designed to accommodate aircraft
with wing spans not exceeding 214 feet, or 65m; or with tail
mounted engines not exceeding 22 feet in height.

positioned at mid-point of the parallel walls, and the aircraft
located between the parallel walls, headed east or west. Wind
permitting an easterly heading shall be used primarily.
5.1 In no case shall the engine test be conducted with the
engine jet blast perpendicular to the barrier walls.
5.2 The Barrier B position is designed to accommodate aircraft
in Airplane Design Group II, (i.e., wingspan up to but not including
79 feet, or 24m).
6. Run-ups at the NETJETS Ramp North Airfield must be conducted
with the subject engine positioned parallel to the hangar (i.e.,
heading east or west), to obtain maximum effectiveness of the
hangar as a barrier.
6.1 In no case shall the engine test be conducted with the
engine jet blast perpendicular to the hangar.
7. Air cargo aircraft larger than design Group II requiring night
time maintenance run-ups will follow the above procedures and
use Noise Barrier A."
8. Corporate and business jet aircraft operating at either the
Lane Ramp or AirNet Ramp may use either Noise Barriers A or B
to perform night time maintenance run-ups.
9. All aircraft maintenance personnel shall maintain a night
time (2200 - 0700 hours) run-up log, to record the run-up barrier
utilized, orientation of aircraft (E or W), time/duration of each
engine test, and power setting of each engine test. A copy of
this log shall be sent monthly to the Airport Noise Office [fax
9.1 The Airport Noise Officer will collect and file the run-up
logs to correlate and confirm noise complaints. The Airport
Operations Coordinator(s) will monitor the run-up operations
to ensure the policy is being followed.
9.2 The Airport Authority's permanent Noise and Flight Track
Monitoring System (NOMS) will be utilized to measure noise levels,
respond to complaints, and confirm the predicted noise levels
9.3 The NOMS monitoring program, conducted over a reasonable
time frame, will be used to amend the engine run-up policy and
10. An evaluation of the engine run-up policy will be conducted
by the Airport Authority annually.
