NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

Runway 30L Departures: All jet aircraft departing from runway 30L should be required to:

1. Use a noise abatement departure procedure consistent with the FAA approved operation specifications.

2. Climb and maintain runway heading 303 degrees until reaching 1.8 DME consistent with the Standard Instrument Departure (SID) procedures applicable to runway 30L.

Runway 30L Arrivals: All jet aircraft arrivals should intercept runway 30L at 303 degrees final approach course at or outside the 6.6 DME outer marker.

Runway 12R Departures: All jet aircraft departing runway 12R should be required to:

1. Use a noise abatement departure procedure consistent with FAA approved operation specifications.

2. Climb and maintain runway heading 123 degrees.

Runway 12R Arrivals: Jet aircraft arrivals should intercept 12R 123 degrees final approach course at or above glide slope altitude and outside the 5.0 DME.

CONTINUOUS DESCENT ARRIVAL (CDA) - NONE

AIRPORT CURFEWS
4/2005 - The airport installed two thermal imaging cameras that are used to track the precise time an airplane takes off or lands and this information. This will help the airport in identifying those operations that violate the night time curfew (11:30 pm - 6:30 am) which bans operations of airplanes that produce more than the 89 EPNdB noise level limit (average of takeoff/sideline/approach per FAA Advisory Circular AC 36-1H). The fine imposed for violating the nighttime curfew is $2500 for each occurrence.

Stage 2aircraft may not operate between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m.

Stage 3 aircraft at or below 89.0 EPNdB per FAA Advisory Circular AC 36-1H average of takeoff/sideline/approach noise levels, or any other “grand fathered” Stage 3 Jet Aircraft can operate between the hours of 11:30 p.m. to 6:30 a.m.

PREFERENTIAL RUNWAYS
Runway 12R/30L is the preferred arrival runway for jet aircraft and Runway 12L/30R is the preferred departure runway for jet aircraft. All jet aircraft take-offs are to be initiated from the end of the runway unless directed otherwise by ATC.

OPERATING QUOTA - NONE

ENGINE RUN-UP RESTRICTIONS
Jet engine run-ups must be authorized and approved by Airport Operations.

APU OPERATING RESTRICTIONS - NONE

NOISE BUDGET RESTRICTIONS - NONE

NOISE SURCHARGE - NONE

NOISE MONITORING SYSTEM


First airport in California to receive State approval and certification of a fully operational Airport Noise Monitoring System.

SJC's Airport Noise Monitoring System: 15 stations - monitors both takeoff as well as approach. The computer based system operates continuously with noise exposure levels at each nms determined daily, in units of CNEL, in conformance with State Law. Reports are submitted to State DOT quarterly by the county. CNEL data is used also in land use planning.

The Airport has a 24-hour Noise Report Recorder:408-452-0707. An Aircraft Noise and Operations Management System (ANOMS) was installed in November 1992. The ANOMS system records and measures aircraft noise levels at strategic locations in noise sensitive areas under the aircraft arrival and departure paths in compliance with state regulations.

Areas Affected (As of April 1, 2004)

Noise Impact Area (statute miles-squared): 0
Estimated Number of dwellings impacted: 0
Estimated number of people residing within the Noise Impact Boundary: 0

FLIGHT TRACK MONITORING SYSTEM
Yes - see Noise Monitoring System

NOISE LEVEL LIMITS
Airport operates under a variance from state law that requires CNEL limit of 65dB

STAGE 2 RESTRICTIONS
Stage 2 <75,000 lbs may operate only between 0700-2300.

Stage 2 airplanes >75,000 lbs are prohibited from operating at airports within the 48 contiguous states.

STAGE 2 PHASEOUT
U.S. Stage 2 Phase out complete as of 12/31/1999 (CFR Part 91.801). Stage 2 airplanes >75,000 lbs are prohibited from operating at airports within the 48 contiguous states.

STAGE 3 RESTRICTIONS - NONE
