NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

In order to reduce aircraft noise impact on residential areas in the vicinity of Vaasa airport, the following procedures will be applied:

Flying below the altitude of 600 M (2000 ft) MSL over Vaasa city area must be avoided, unless lower altitude is necessary for take-off or landing.

See AIP Finland, ENR 1.5 paragraph 4 Noise Abatement Procedures

4.1 The published SID and STAR routes are also the minimum noise routings.

4.2 After take-off aircraft shall climb as rapidly as practicable to at least 2000 ft.

4.3 The final stage of an instrument or visual approach shall not be preformed below the glide path ILS or PAPI. When ILS GP or PAPI is not available, the approach should be carried out maintaining at least 3 degree glide path.

4.4 Continuous descent approach (CDA) is a noise abatement technique for arriving aircraft in which the rate of descent is adjusted by pilots to achieve a continuous descent profile before interception of the ILS glide path, the objective being to minimize the length of level flight segments while as far as possible using reduced engine power.

4.5 According to the Decision of Finavia flying below 2000 ft MSL above the city of Helsinki shall be avoided. For coordinates of Helsinki Noise Abatement Area, see AIP Finland, EFH AD2.17.

Note: Irrespective of the recommendation above, the aircraft shall follow flying altitudes specified for departure and arrival routes located within the noise abatement area.


CONTINUOUS DESCENT ARRIVAL (CDA)
4.4 Continuous descent approach (CDA) is a noise abatement technique for arriving aircraft in which the rate of descent is adjusted by pilots to achieve a continuous descent profile before interception of the ILS glide path, the objective being to minimize the length of level flight segments while as far as possible using reduced engine power.
