Chapter 2 Equivalent propeller aircraft

The majority of propeller aircraft types are considered to be Chapter 3 equivalent based on reference to FAA Advisory Circular AC36-3H Estimated Airplane Noise Levels in A Weighted Decibels. Assumed conversions of takeoff noise dBA + 11 = EPNdB or approached dBA + 10 = EPNdB were used for comparisons to Chapter 3 certification limits.

All Chapter 2 equivalent propeller aircraft will not normally be approved to operate 23:00 pm - 6:30 am local. The following are known Chapter 2 equivalent propeller aircraft
