1.1 The procedures below are intended to prevent excessive noise
on and around the airport. As the pilots' contribution is essential
for reaching the aim of the conceived noise abatement procedures,
they are strictly requested to respect these procedures aiming
at reducing the embarrassment due to the airplanes noise around
AD 2.21.2 Take-off procedures
2.1 All types of airplanes
Paths are to be followed (according to the operational standards
of each individual airplane) in such a way as to reach a height
of 3000 ft above aerodrome elevation as soon as possible.
Rate of climb:
All departure procedures are based on the fact that airplanes
are to maintain a minimum climb slope of 6% (365 ft/NM) until
If unable to comply, pilots are to advise accordingly on requesting
the start-up clearance.
2.2 Turbojet Airplanes
In addition to the above, pilots are to comply with the climb
1. The noise abatement procedure is not to be initiated at less
than 800 ft above the airport elevation.
2. The initial climbing speed to the noise abatement initiation
point shall not be less than V2 + 10 kt.
3. On reaching an altitude at or above 800 ft above aerodrome elevation, adjust and maintain engine power/thrust in accordance with the noise abatement power/thrust schedule provided in the aircraft operating manual. Maintain a climb speed of V2 plus 10 to 20 kt with flaps and slats in the take-off configuration.
4. At 3000ft above aerodrome elevation, accelerate smoothly to en-route climb speed with flaps/slats retraction on schedule.
AD2.21.3 Approach and Landing procedures
Final approach shall not be carried out at a slope:
- less than the ILS descent course which is 3 degrees
- less than the approach course set by the PAPI red and white
AD4.21.4 Actions to be taken to reduce noise embarrassment around
In order to reduce noise embarrassment to people living in the
agglomerations located in the extension of RWY 11/29 center line,
the following actions are recognize:
4.1 Landing on RWY 11 will be operated as much as possible using
ARC DME Instrument approach procedures (See AIP Tunisia AD2 DTTA-45
4.2 In case a visual approach is permitted on RWY 11, the clearance
will be attended by the following conditions:
- the aircraft must be aligned on the RWY center line at a
minimum 10 NM of the runway threshold with minimum over flight
altitude of 3000 ft
4.3 When the RWY 01/19 is not usable and if meteorological and
traffic conditions permit, landing and take-off operations on
RWY 11/29 will be permitted as follows:
- take-off RWY 11
- landing RWY 29
4.4 The operators will keep respect of approach procedures at
minimum noise and drag as defined in their operations manual.
