NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

Arrival Procedures: (All Aircraft)

1. Circuit height 1650ft ASL (weather permitting). Right hand circuits Rwy 25 & 30.

2. Maintain 2500ft ASL or above turning onto final approach.

3. Maintain 2500ft ASL as long as practicable before commencing final descent.

4. Remain on or slightly above ILS glide slope or PAPI.

5. Consistent with safe aircraft operating procedures, arriving aircraft should be flown to give the best possible performance with respect to noise abatement. (i.e. extension of wing flap, spoilers, landing gear, engine power/thrust settings).

Departure Procedures: (Turbo-jet/Turbo-fan)

Rwy 25 - Unrestricted
Rwy 30 - Aircraft on right turnout - climb to 3300ft ASL before proceeding on course.
Rwy 07 - Climb to 3400ft ASL before proceeding on course.
Rwy 12 - Climb to 3000ft ASL, turning as required during climb.

CONTINUOUS DESCENT ARRIVAL (CDA)
Per NAV Canadia:
In Canada we have 20 airports with RNAV STARS which are basically constant descent arrivals into the terminal areas (from assigned FL to below 5000’). Depending on the traffic, there would be no restrictions until landing.

At our major and secondary airports, CDAs are used at all times for descent to the terminal (from assigned FL to below 10,000 and below – The constant descent is then revised by ATC depending on traffic, metering requirements, aircraft equipage).

At most secondary airports and tertiary airports, aircraft are cleared for the approach. This is basically a CDA controlled by the pilot until landing, unless ATC needs to apply a restriction (level off) due to inbound/outbound IFR traffic (assuming no surveillance capability).

AIRPORT CURFEWS

Night Restrictions (0030-0600 local time)

1. The introduction of additional scheduled flights between 0030 to 0600 local time are not permitted unless authorized by the Airport Manager.

2. The use of Thunder Bay Airport by turbo-jet/turbo-fan aircraft for technical stops or charter operations between 0030 to 0600 local time, are not permitted unless authorized by the Airport Manager.

3. Turbo-jet/turbo-fan aircraft previously authorized to depart between 0030 to 0600 local time, will depart on Rwy 30 only unless operational conditions warrant departure on another runway.

4. Turbo-jet/turbo-fan aircraft previously authorized to arrive between 0030 to 0600 local time will land on Rwy 12 only unless operational conditions warrant landing on another runway.

5. Under extenuating circumstances authorization to operate between 0300 to 0600 local time may be granted by the Thunder Bay International Airports Authority. Preference will be given to aircraft meeting noise certification standards (ICAO Annes 16). Contact Airport Security at (807) 473-2612, 11:00Z to 005:00z.

PREFERENTIAL RUNWAYS
All Aircraft:

Consistent with safe aircraft operating procedures, controllers will assign runways to divert as many departures and arrivals as possible from flight over noise sensitive areas. Unless operational conditions do not permit, pilots shall accept runways as assigned by ATC. When the tower is not in operation, pilots will be expected to use the preferred order for runway usage as shown below:

Arrivals: 07, 12, 25, 30
Departures: 25, 30, 07, 12

CHAPTER 2 RESTRICTIONS
Chapter 2 airplanes >75,000 lbs are banned from operating in Canada except for those aircraft authorized by the Minister of Transport (northern exemptions).

CHAPTER 2 PHASEOUT
The phase out of Chapter 2 airplanes >75,000 in Canada was complete as of April 1, 2002. Those airplanes are ban from operating in Canada with the exception of a very limited number of exemptions for aircraft operating to northern and remote locations.
