NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

PREFERENTIAL RUNWAY USE PROGRAM

1. PURPOSE:
To establish operating procedures to minimize the effects of aircraft noise on neighboring communities and to maintain land use compatibility near Salt Lake City International Airport. This Letter of Agreement is supplemental to FAA Order 8400.9, National Safety and Operational Criteria for Runway Use Programs.

2. BACKGROUND:

Aviation noise abatement policy has placed responsibility on airport proprietors for planning and implementing action designed to reduce the effect of noise on residents surrounding the airport area. Increased use of Salt Lake City International Airport has now made it necessary to implement a preferential runway use program for all operators.

3. RESPONSIBILITY:

Salt Lake City Tower/ TRACON shall employ the preferential runway use program and the procedures contained herein. This does not abrogate the authority and responsibility of the pilot in command to ensure the safe operation of his aircraft. It is not intended that these procedures restrict operation or adversely discriminate against any user. Deviations from runway use specified may be necessary because of emergencies, weather, traffic volume, airport construction or maintenance work.

4. PROCEDURES:

a. Preferential/Alternating Runway Flow: Maximize north flow departures and south flow arrivals between 7:00am and 11:00pm. At times when flow cannot be alternated, north flow will be preferred.

b. Nighttime Operations: Use the procedures in subparagraph (a).

(a) When Runway 16R, 16L or 17 departures are necessary, all turbojet aircraft shall fly westerly prior to proceeding southbound.

c. Runway 16R, 16L and 17 Noise Abatement Departure Flight Tracks: All turbojet aircraft departing Runways 16R and 16L or 17, shall turn westerly as soon as feasible. Between 7:00am and 11:00pm all departures which are normally routed south of the Salt Lake VORTAC 100 degree radial are not required to turn.

d. Runway 34R, 34L and 35 Noise Abatement Departure Flight Tracks: Restrict all eastbound departures until aircraft have passed one half mile north of the departure end of the runway. When practical, all turbojet aircraft departures shall be given an initial departure heading of approximately 260 degrees clockwise through 340 degrees.

e. Runway 34R, 34L and 35 Noise Abatement Arrival Flight Tracks: Approaches to Runways 34R, 34L and 35, aircraft flying downwind, will turn onto final as close to the airport as feasible, during VFR conditions.

f. Restriction to Traffic Use, All Runways: The traffic pattern east of Salt Lake City International Airport is limited to use by piston and turboprop aircraft weighing 19,000 pounds or less.

g. Eastbound Turn Restriction: All turbojet aircraft shall not make eastbound turns from Salt Lake City International Airport until they leave 7,500 feet MSL.

h. Restrictions to Above Procedures:

(1) Runwaymust be clear and dry (i.e., no rain, ice slush, snow, etc.).

(2) A crosswind component of less than 8 knots. When a crosswind component exceeds 8 knots, the runway most nearly aligned with the wind should be used.

(3) Temperature is greater than 80 degrees and a crosswind component of more than 6 knots exists, the runway most nearly aligned with the wind should be used.

5. ADMINISTRATION:
Pilots' conformance with these procedures is expected. The Executive Director of Airports or their designee shall coordinate this procedure with operators that regularly use the airport. Requests for use of other runways for reasons of safety will be honored, and the pilot will be advised that the requested runway is noise sensitive.

Avigation Easements
1982-current
New development projects acquiring building permits in Salt Lake City's Airport Influence Zones A, B and C are required to submit an avigation easement as part of the building permit process.
Zoning Laws
1976-1982; City zoning re-write in 1995

Salt Lake City established the A-Airport zoning district that is currently in effect for the airport. Additionally, Salt Lake City established airport overlay zones. Airport overlay influence zones A, B and C are in place over properties near the airport. The following briefly describes the airport influence zones:

Zone A - prohibits residential and institutional uses such as schools, hospitals, churches. Commercial prohibited unless uses have 25 dB sound attenuation.

Zone B- prohibits residential and institutional unless use has 25 dB sound attenuation and interior air circulation systems. Hotels and motels prohibited unless use has 25 dB sound attenuation and interior air circulation systems. Commercial uses allowed.

Zone C - also prohibits residential and institutional uses unless use has interior air circulation systems. Commercial uses allowed.

Real Estate/Property Disclosure Laws
-
Real estate or property disclosure laws are not required, excepting disclosure in the avigation easement.
Acquire Land for Noise Compatibility to date
