What are noise abatement procedures?

There are certain constraints that can prevent or hinder the implementation of noise abatement procedures.  Operational procedures must consider issues such as:

  • the capacity requirements of the airport and airspace,
  • the configuration of the airport and the local community characteristics,
  • the tradeoff between noise and emissions, and
  • whether aircraft are equipped with the necessary sophisticated flight management systems.

Noise abatement procedures are published by Airservices Australia.
