NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES
Consistent with limiting factors, all aircraft shall use rwy 09/27 between 0400 – 1500z.

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).

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.

COMMENTS
Background:

On December 16, 1977, the Ministry of Transport approved the Air Navigation Order (ANO) Series II, Number 21. This order required all aircraft covered by Annex 16 to comply with Annex 16 (or FAR 36 or U.K. noise certification requirements depending on the country of manufacture) in order to receive a Certificate of Noise Compliance.

On and after January 1, 1986, an aircraft without a valid Canadian Certificate of Noise Compliance (carried on the aircraft) will not be permitted to operate international flights to or from designated noise sensitive runways of certain "noise restricted; airports.

Effective June 30, 1979, all Canadian newly registered aircraft, or foreign registered aircraft leased by a Canadian air carrier until January 1, 1986, must meet Annex 16, Chapter 2 standards. On and after January 1, 1988, this order is applicable to all aircraft operating in Canada.

Noise Operating Criteria

602.105 No person shall operate an aircraft at or in the vicinity of an aerodrome except in accordance with the applicable noise abatement procedures and noise control requirements specified by the Minister in the Canada Air Pilot or Canada Flight Supplement, including the procedures and requirements relating to

(a) preferential runways;
(b) minimum noise routes;
(c) hours when aircraft operations are prohibited or restricted; (d) arrival procedures;
(e) departure procedures;
(f) duration of flights;
(g) the prohibition or restriction of training flights;
(h) VFR or visual approaches;
(i) simulated approach procedures; and
(j) the minimum altitude for the operation of aircraft in the vicinity of the aerodrome.

602.106 (1) Subject to subsection (2), no person shall operate a subsonic turbojet aeroplane that has a maximum certificated take-off weight of more than 34,000kg (74,956 pounds) on take-off at a noise restricted runway set out in column II of an item of the table to this section at an aerodrome set out in column I of that item, unless there is on board

(a) a certificate of airworthiness indicating that the aeroplane meets the applicable noise emission standards;
(b) a certificate of noise compliance issued in respect of the aeroplane; or
(c) where the aeroplane is not a Canadian aircraft, a document issued by the state of registry that specifies that the aeroplane meets the applicable noise emission requirements of that state.

(2)Subsection (1) does not apply

(a) to the extent that it is inconsistent with any obligation assumed by Canadan in respect of a foreign state in a treaty, convention or agreement;
(b) where the pilot in command of an aircraft has declared an emergency; or (c) where an aircraft is operated on

(i) an air evacuation operation,
(ii) any other emergency air operation, or
