NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES
See UK AIP
a. Operators of all aircraft arriving or departing from the aerodrome are required to conform to the following procedures, as applicable, notwithstanding that at any time they may be departed from to the extent necessary for avoiding immediate danger or for compliance with instructions from ATC.
b. In order that the least possible noise disturbance is caused in areas surrounding the aerodrome, aircraft operators should ensure that at all times their aircraft conform to the noise abatement techniques laid down for that type of aircraft.
Following procedures apply to:
i. All turbo jet aircraft;
ii. all aircraft with a MTOW of 5700 kg or greater;
1. Aircraft flying an ILS approach should at no time descend below 1744 ft amsl, 1700 ft agl before intercepting the glide path.
2. Aircraft flying an instrument approach other than ILS, or those aircraft flying a visual approach, should not intercept the appropriate final approach track at a range less than 5 DME SAM, except that aircraft flying a visual approach via the downwind leg should not intercept final approach at less than 2 DME SAM for RWY 20 or 4 DME SAM for RWY 02.
3. Aircraft flying a visual approach should intercept the final approach track at a level not less than that equivalent to a 3° glide path at the intercept range. Final approach should be flown at not less than a nominal 3° glide path.
4. With the exception of the minimum ILS intercept level, nothing herein shall apply to an aircraft authorised by ATC to fly a circling instrument approach procedure.
d. Except as required during normal aircraft operations when flight is immediately intended, or as part of an after landing engine shutdown routine, engine ground running by aircraft is subject to strict control and is prohibited at certain times.
Requests for approval must be made to the Airport Duty Manager, Tel: 023-80627113
e. The operation of aircraft auxiliary power units or ground power units should be kept to a minimum consistent with safety.
f. Noise Preferential Routes (See UK AIP for details)
The Noise Preferential Routes (NPR) specified herein are applicable to:
i. All turbo jet aircraft;
ii. all aircraft with a MTOW of 5700 kg or greater;
Noise Preferential Routes
|Climb straight ahead until 2.5 DME SAM
If VOR SAM in unserviceable, climb straight ahead until 2.5
|As soon as possible after passing 500 ft ALT turn right
to intercept VOR"SAM" RDL 217. Maintain RDL 217
until 2000 ft ALT.
If VOR "SAM" is unserviceable as soon as possible
after passing 500 ft ALT turn right to maintain a track 217
degrees MAG until 2000 ft ALT.
g. The NPR specified at f may be varied by ATC except for aircraft that do not conform to the provisions of ICAO Annex 16, Vol 1, Chapter 3. If an ATC clearance requires a departure heading other than that specified at f, the ATC specified heading supersedes that required by the appropriate NPR.

ENGINE RUN-UP RESTRICTIONS
Aircraft Engine Ground Running (EGR) - AOI 015/100`
It is the responsibility of all employers to ensure that relevant
Operating Instructions are brought to the attention of their staff.
However, individuals remain responsible for their own actions
and those who are in any doubt should consult their supervisor
1.1 To minimize the environmental impact of aircraft engine
noise pollution and to comply with a Town and Country Planning
Act (1990), Section 106 Agreement, the procedures set out herein
shall be complied with at all times.
1.2 The running or aircraft auxiliary power units (APU) must
be kept to a minimum, consistent with safety.
1.3 To assist aircraft owners/operators and aircraft maintenance
companies to comply with this Instruction's provisions EGR has
been divided into three classifications:
a) EGR necessary during normal aircraft operations when flight
is imminently intended or is part of an after landing engine
shut down routine.
b) EGR to test engines or systems on a planned routine or
scheduled basis following planned, routine or scheduled repair,
servicing or maintenance of the aircraft concerned.
c) EGR to test engines or systems following repair, servicing
or maintenance of the aircraft concerned arising from a defect
with the aircraft where it is not practicable for such repair,
servicing or maintenance to be carried out at a location other
than on the airport.
1.4 Notwithstanding the classification set out above, an aircraft
that requires to start and operate an engine, or engines, at
"ground idle" setting are, with the exception of 5.1, considered
outside the scope of this Instruction and are accordingly not
subject to its provisions.
2. Description of Task
2.1 To minimize the environmental impact of engine ground running
and ensure compliance with a Section 106 Agreement entered into
with Eastleigh Borough Council.
3. Qualifications and Responsibility
3.1 The Airport Duty Manager (ADM) is responsible for assessing
any application made for the conduct of EGR and determining
whether approval can be given. The ADM will issue approvals
together with any specific instructions for the conduct of a
particular operation. Refusal of an application will also be
notified by the ADM. A refusal will be notified when the provisions
of the Instruction would not be met. Accordingly no reason for
refusal will be given.
4. Frequency of Task
4.1 As and when required.
5. Operating Procedures
5.1 The following applies to all classifications of EGR:
a) RTF contact must be established with ATC and start up
approval obtained prior to the starting of any turbine powered
b) When practicable, aircraft anti-collision beacons (where
fitted) must be illuminated prior to engine starting. If such
illumination is not possible it must be accompanied as soon
as practical after starting.
c) As far as practicable, anti-collision lighting must remain
illuminated until all engines are shutdown.
5.2 The following applies to all EGR except those classified
a) Approval to conduct EGR must be obtained from the Airport
Duty Manager. Applications may be made in person or via telephone
and must include the following:
i) the identity of the person or company making the request
ii) the aircraft registration markings and type
iii) the anticipated duration of EGR, an indication of the
expected level of engine power setting and number of engines
to be run
iv) information to assist the ADM in determining the appropriate
classification, 1.3 b) or c).
v) any other information considered relevant by the ADM.
b) Issuance of approval will be at the sole discretion of
the Airport Duty Manager. Any such approval granted will be
communicated to ATC.
c) The person or company responsible for EGR shall provide
a competent person adjacent to the aircraft to act as lookout
so as to ensure the safety of any adjacent aircraft, personnel
or equipment. The lookout shall have direct communication
with the person conducting the EGR in order that the appropriate
information, advice or instructions may be communicated without
delay. This may be accomplished visually by means of hand
d) No EGR is permitted between 2300-0600(local time) each
night, except Saturday night to Sunday morning when no EGR
is permitted between 2300 Saturday to 0730 Sunday.
e) Turbo-prop aircraft with a maximum take-off weight in excess
of 15 tonnes and all jet aircraft shall be made either at
locations X,Y,Z as depicted on the chart shown at Attachment
"A". Taxiing or towing of the aircraft to the required EGR
location must be in accordance with ATC instructions.
f) Non Chapter 3 aircraft shall carry out the EGR at location
"Y", as depicted on the chart shown at Attachment "A".
g) Turbo-prop aircraft with a maximum take-off weight in excess
of 15 tonnes shall carry out the EGR with the aircraft heading
020 degrees MAG or 200 degrees MAG.
h) All jet aircraft shall carry out the EGR with the aircraft
heading 270 degrees MAG
5.3 The following applies to EGR classified in 1.3b):
a) No EGR is permitted on Sundays or Public Holidays
b) EGR will not normally be authorized before 0900 or after
1800 (local time). However, if exceptional circumstances exist,
at the sole discretion of the Airport Duty Manager, EGR may
be authorized on permitted days between 0800-0900 and 1900-2100(local

in this classification shall not exceed more than an aggregate
of one hour per day nor more than an aggregate of 3 hours
d) EGR of non Chapter 3 aircraft in this classification shall
not be made on more than 50 occasions in any period of 12
6.1 To facilitate compilation of statistical data, accurate
records of EGR is essential. These are required for EGR classified
in 1.3 b) and c).
6.2 Requests for approval of EGR in classification 1.3 c) must
be made on the shown at Attachment "B". This form is completed
by the ADM and filed. No further action is required.
6.3 Requests for approval of EGR in classification 1.3 b) must
be made on the form shown at Attachment "B". This form is completed
by the ADM and filed. For turbo-prop aircraft with MTOW in excess
of 15 tonnes and all jet aircraft undertaking EGR in this classification,
the total length of each day's EGR should be recorded on the
engine ground run weekly record form. This cumulative total
must be updated each day to ensure that a 3 hours total per
week is not exceeded.
6.4 Further to this, the number of occasions that any non Chapter
3 aircraft carries out EGR in classifications 1.3 b) it must
be recorded on the same form in the appropriate column. At the
end of each week the rolling total number of occasions of non
Chapter 3 EGR must be carried forward to the next week's form
and the old form filed.
6.5 ATC will record times that EGR start and finish, these must
then be notified to the Flight Briefing Unit, who will in turn
notify the ADM.
6.6 For ease of reference a flow chart detaining the essential
actions for EGR is set out at Attachment"E".
