NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

Runway 34 - Departure:
Maintain 342 degree heading and climb at (V2+20)not to exceed 190 KIAS. Upon reaching 1,000 ft. MSL turn to a 295 degree heading and set thrust to achieve 1,000 fpm climb rate to 2,500 ft. MSL. Use reduced climb power until reaching 3,500 ft. MSL.

Runway 16 - Eastbound:
Maintain 162 degree heading and climb at (V2+20) not to exceed 190 KIAS. Upon reaching 1,000 ft. MSL set thrust to achieve 1,000 fpm rate. Use reduced climb power until reaching 3,500 ft. MSL.

Runway 16 - Departure:
Maintain 162 degree heading and climb at (V2+20) not to exceed 190 KIAS. Upon reaching 800 ft. MSL turn to a 320 degree heading and set thrust to achieve 1,000 fpm rate to 2,500 ft MSL. Use reduced climb power until reaching 3,500 ft. MSL.

Runway 11 and 29 - Departure:
Maintain 114 and 294 degree heading and climb at (V2+20) not to exceed 190 KIAS. Upon reaching 1,000 ft. MSL set thrust to achieve 1,000 fpm climb rate to 2,500 ft. MSL. Use reduced climb power until reaching 3,500 ft. MSL.

Runway 16 - Arrival:
Maintain 2,500 ft MSL or higher as long as practical. Intercept the final approach course at or beyond the ILS Outer Marker (5 DME). Use minimum flap setting and delay extending landing gear until established on the final approach. Use reverse thrust reduction techniques and minimize rapid RPM change.

Runway 34 - Arrival:
Maintain 2,500 ft MSL or higher as long as practical. Intercept the final approach course over Long Island Sound. Use minimum flap setting and delay extending landing gear until established on the final approach. Use reverse thrust reduction techniques and minimize rapid RPM change.

Note: Inbound; avoid overflying shoreline communities.

Runway 11 and 29 - Arrival:
Maintain 2,500 ft MSL or higher as long as practical. Use minimum flap setting and delay extending landing gear until established on the final approach. Use reverse thrust reduction techniques and minimize rapid RPM change.

Use of Reverse Thrust:
Limit the use of reverse thrust at other than idle power and limit the use of reverse thrust to perform early runway turnoff. Full length taxiways are available.

Intersection Takeoffs:
Intersection takeoffs are prohibited for large and turbojet airplanes.

Helicopter Routes:
Westchester County Airport has four designated helicopter routes for noise abatement.

Please consult New York Helicopter Route Chart or airport website.

CONTINUOUS DESCENT ARRIVAL (CDA) - NONE

AIRPORT CURFEWS
Voluntary Restraint from Flying Program (VRFF) midnight to 6:30 am, in effect daily.

PREFERENTIAL RUNWAYS

No preferential runway system however, there is a weight bearing capacity restraint on the main jet runway (16/34) of 120,000 pounds maximum certified gross takeoff weight.

Aircraft over 120,000 lbs must contact Airport Operations at (914) 995-4850 to receive advance authorization to operate at the airport.

OPERATING QUOTA

Scheduled Aircraft Operations and Commercial Passenger Quota and Gate Availability:

A maximum of four scheduled commercial aircraft can enplane or deplane per half hour and during any half-hour period, 240 commercial passengers are allowed through the terminal to enplane and deplane through four available gates.

ENGINE RUN-UP RESTRICTIONS
Engine maintenance run-ups are allowed between 9am and 9pm. Operators wishing to conduct maintenance runs must contact Airport Operations to be assigned a run-up pad/position.

APU OPERATING RESTRICTIONS - NONE

NOISE BUDGET RESTRICTIONS - NONE

The noise monitoring system is programmed to flag any aircraft event at or above a maximum noise level (MNL) of 90 dB(A), effective February 1, 2009. These events are reported as High Range Noise Events (HRNE's). Each aircraft operator that causes a HRNE is contacted by the Environmental Department.
