NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES
Voluntarily limit use of Runway 18/36 by noise-critical aircraft unless crosswinds exceed 15 knots

- "Noise-critical" aircraft are those having Estimated Maximum A-weighted Sound Levels (from FAA Advisory Circular 36-3H) greater that 80 dBA
- Would limit many jets and loud turboprops, such as Lear 25s and FedEx Caravan 208s

Continue preferred use of:
- Runway 29 for early morning departures

- "Harbor visual" approach for Runway 29 arrivals.

Retain voluntary 11 departure procedure and CASCO TWO SID for older technology aircraft. Update CASCO TWO SID in progress (see diagram)
