See Noise Abatement information.

CHAPTER 2 RESTRICTIONS
We have no specific restrictions for Stage 2 aircraft; however these aircraft must comply with the general noise rule mentioned under Noise Level Limits. It should be noted that for aircraft with higher MTOW than 34,000 kg. the noise limit valid at 34,000 MTOW should be used as max possible noise level. (F28 fellowship was used as noise dimensioning aircraft).

Chapter 2 airplanes >75,000 lbs are banned from operating at airports in EU Member States as of April 1, 2002.

CHAPTER 2 PHASEOUT
From April 1, 2002 all civil subsonic jet aeroplanes >75,000 lbs operating at airports in EU Member States must comply with the standards specified in Part II, Chapter 3, Volume 1 of Annex 16 in accordance with EU Council Directive 92/14/EEC.

CHAPTER 3 RESTRICTIONS

COMMENTS
The airport opened April 1, 1973 originally intended for domestic services but in reality became a GA airport without scheduled services. Due to increased security demands, we raised a new fence & started having access-control from March 2003, from which date a FBO was also started. A new masterplan has since been decided – with the object of getting permission for 25.000 operations/year instead of the present 2.662 ops. (MTOM = 10 tons). A new environmental survey has just been started as the first step in the political process of getting this permission; expected to be decided late in 2005. The airport facilities will then be expanding in accordance with traffic growth over the forthcoming years. October 2004 the Danish Airforce moved their Search & Rescue helicopter to Copenhagen, Roskilde.
