NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

Night Flight Restriction Program - Summer 2010 (March 28, 2010 - October 30, 2010)

Note: There are fines for aircraft that do not comply with the noise abatement procedures and operating restrictions. The Airport Enforcement Office recommends an assessment of the penalties to Transport Canada which is responsible for assessing fines.


CONTINUOUS DESCENT ARRIVAL (CDA)
Per NAV Canada:
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).

NOISE MONITORING SYSTEM
The GTAA uses a sophisticated Airport Noise Monitoring and Flight Tracking system that combines radar flight tracking data from NAV CANADA with mapping from a Geographical Information System (GIS). The data is correlated with noise readings collected at the Noise Monitoring Terminals (NMTs) in the surrounding communities.


System records flight numbers, aircraft types and airlines, as well as time, location and speed of all aircraft within the operating area. New Noise Monitoring System being installed, fall 2010.

21 permanent and 1 portable NMTs plus ATC radar feed.
