NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES
See AIP Germany ENR 1.5 for details regarding noise abatement procedures
Chapter 3
For aircraft licensed in accordance with ICAO Annex 16, Chapter 3 as well as B737-200 as far as the noise levels for takeoff pursuant to ICAO Annex 16, Chapter 3 have provably been reached by supplementary equipment:
Takeoff to 1500 feet GND


- Takeoff power
- Takeoff flaps
- Climb at V2 + 10 KT (or as limited by body angle).
At 1500 feet GND

- Reduce power to not less than climb power.
- Acceleration during climb and retraction of flaps
- normal transition to en-route climb
Arrivals
Pilots should arrange their flight so as to leave the initial approach fix at a speed which permits operation of the aircraft in clean configuration. This speed should be maintained until reaching a distance of approximately 12 NM from touchdown. For this portion of the approach, an indicated airspeed of 210 kt +/- 10 kt is recommended unless a higher airspeed is required for performance reasons.

The subsequent portion of the approach up to a point shortly prior to the Outer Marker should be flown at an airspeed of 160 kt +/- 10 kt using an intermediate flap setting as appropriate for the type of aircraft concerned with the landing gear retracted. This phase will normally include the transition from level flight to descent on the glide path which should be intercepted at a height of not lower than 2000 ft above touchdown zone elevation.

Landing configuration should be established shortly prior to or over the Outer Marker, i.e. at this time the landing gear should be extended, the flaps set for landing and the aircraft stabilized at a safe approach speed.
Reverse Thrust
Reverse thrust other than idle thrust shall only be used to an extent necessary for safety reasons.

CONTINUOUS DESCENT ARRIVAL (CDA) - NONE

AIRPORT CURFEWS

1. Restrictions for Jet Aircraft

1.1 Jet aircraft licensed in accordance with ICAO Annex 16, Chapter 3 are only permitted to take off and land at the airport.

1.2 Excluded from the restrictions are:

1.2.1 aircraft provably approaching the airport as alternate airport for meteorological, technical or other safety reasons and if Berlin Schonefeld cannot be approached.

1.2.2 take-offs and landings on a mission in disasters or rendering medical aid as well as in other emergency cases.

2. Restrictions for Night Flying

During legal summer time deduct 1 hour from the times stated below.

2.1 Take-offs are not permitted between 2100 off block time 2050 (1950) and 0500 (0400).

2.2 Landings are not permitted between 2100 (2000) and 0500 (0400).

2.3 For delayed take-offs and landings in scheduled air services or scheduled charter services with scheduled times of departure or arrival before 2050 (1950) or 2100 (2000) an exception to the flying restrictions may be taken for granted in case of provably unavoidable delays until 2200 (2100). If the delay is unavoidable, this shall be reported in each individual case to the "Luftaufsicht" of the airport and also proved.

Delayed landings during closing time from 2200 (2100) until 0500 (0400) are only possible in accordance with paragraph 2.5 of this night flying regulation.

2.4 Excluded from the restrictions are:

2.4.1 landings of aircraft provably approaching the airport as an alternate airport for meteorological, technical or other safety reasons.
2.4.2 take-offs and landings on a mission in disasters or rendering medical assistance as well as other emergency cases.
2.4.3 flight checks conducted by the DFS as far as required to maintain safety of flight operations.

2.5 In justified individual cases the "Senatsverwaltung for Stadtontwicklung" may grant exceptions, especially if necessary to avoid serious disturbance of air traffic or in cases of special public interest. If necessary, applications shall be directed to

Senatsverwaltung for Stadentwicklung
Referat VII G (Lutfahrt)
An der Urania 4-10
10787 Berlin
Tel: (030) 9016-0
Fax: (030) 9016-3320

In urgent cases outside regular operating hours, the applications shall be submitted to the "Luftaufsichtsstelle (tel:(030)6951 3601, Fax: 6951 3610)" Only in the most exceptional circumstances can permission beyond para 2.3 be expected.

Regarding 2.1 - 2.5
Clearances for take-offs during closed times issued by ATC do not comprise the necessary exceptional permission by the Luftaufsicht at the airport.

One principle, exceptional permission for night landings during the closing times will not be granted by ATC via radio telephone. Accordingly, a landing clearance issued by ATC for safety reasons will not necessarily include the decision of the Luftaufsicht about the admissibility of a night landing. In case of landing or premature landing (before 0500) not approved by the Luftaufsicht, the pilot shall appear in person at the Luftaufsicht immediately after landing in order to defend admissibility of the night landing.

PREFERENTIAL RUNWAYS - NONE

OPERATING QUOTA - NONE

ENGINE RUN-UP RESTRICTIONS
Between 0500 (0400) and 2100 (2000) run-ups are generally permitted only when using positions provided for this purpose.

Between 2100 (2000) and 0500 (0400) engine test runs are permitted with consent of the Aviation Supervision Office is necessary for safety reasons shortly prior to a takeoff early in the morning for urgent maintenance purposes.
