Noise Management Plan and Noise Abatement Procedures

This document outlines those procedures and rules governing day-to-day operations at Glenorchy Airstrip with respect to the responsible management of noise generated by the airstrip's activities. Included are such operational restrictions considered necessary to minimise the impact of noise on the airstrip's neighbours and the Glenorchy community.

The rules and procedures contained in this document are intended to keep aircraft flight paths from noise sensitive areas in the vicinity of the airstrip, consistent with CAA Rules and flight safety.

3.9       Fixed Wing Noise Abatement Procedures

The following procedures must be adhered to unless the pilot in command considers it unsafe to do so:

a)         Circuit directions as depicted in the AIP must be adhered to.

b)         Avoid flying over Glenorchy township where possible.

c)         Circling to the east of the airstrip is only permitted as part of a standard overhead rejoin procedure.

d)         Departing aircraft must reduce to climb power as soon as safely practicable after take-off.

e)         Aircraft departing to the north or east should:

i.          From runway 14 turn right and depart downwind remaining to the west of Glenorchy.

ii.         From runway 32 turn left after takeoff after passing abeam Blanket Bay and before reaching Glenorchy township, and climb to the west of Glenorchy township.

f)          Aircraft departing to the south or west should:

i.          From runway 14 depart straight ahead or turn right and depart cross-wind.

ii.         From runway 32 turn left after take-off after passing abeam Blanket Bay and before reaching Glenorchy township, and depart downwind or cross-wind.

g)         Aircraft arriving from the north or east that are not joining overhead should:

i.          For runway 14 keep joint straight in keeping east of Glenorchy township.

ii.         For runway 32 position to join downwind, avoiding overflight of Glenorchy township.

h)        Aircraft arriving from the south or west that are not joining overhead should:

i.          For runway 14 join down wind or right base, keeping south of Glenorchy township.

ii.         For runway 32 join straight in or left base.

 

3.10    Helicopter Noise Abatement Procedures

The following procedures must be adhered to unless the pilot in command considers it unsafe to do so:

a)         Helicopters should follow fixed wing circuit patterns as depicted in the AIP, with the exception that helicopters departing to land at Wyuna or Blanket Bay may fly direct.

b)         Unless landing there, avoid flying over Glenorchy township, Blanket Bay and Wyuna preserve.
