Noise Abatement

OUR AIRPORT AND THE SURROUNDING AREA IS EXTREMELY NOISE SENSITIVE . PLEASE HELP US BE A GOOD NEIGHBOR


*PREFERRED TAKEOFF RUNWAY
(IF WINDS ALLOW) RWY 36

*PREFERRED LANDING RUNWAY
(IF WINDS ALLOW) RWY 18

DEPARTING RUNWAY 36:

Climb straight out for about 1 mile—when you are abeam the white fence in pasture, LEFT TURN to a heading of 320 degrees, track the center of the meadow until reaching the shoreline.

Please avoid flying over the populated areas on either side of that course if possible.

REQUEST: If performance allows, please increase your flaps setting and accomplish a Reduced Thrust Takeoff, so as to enable the aircraft to be at a higher altitude than normal before departing the airport property, to help reduce the noise level on the ground—an additional Noise Abatement Technique.

LANDING ON RUNWAY 36:
(Requested Landing Technique if possible)

Land past the Displaced Threshold (located 2,037 ft from the approach end of runway)—If possible maintain a slightly steeper approach and use reduced power setting(s) —assist in reducing engine noise while flying over residential areas.

DEPARTING RUNWAY 18:

NO LEFT TURN OUT below 7,500 MSL—the smaller hill straight ahead has an elevation of 6,640’ MSL, PLUS up to 100’ trees around the houses. Track the river to the golf course. Circle and climb to 7,500’ MSL over the golf course. If not able to climb to 7,500’ consider returning to the airport. Advise traffic over UNICOM/CTAF 122.95.

CAUTION: Downdrafts are often encountered near the runway abeam the terminal building and West of the golf course near the mountains.

LANDING ON RUNWAY 18:
(Requested Landing Technique if possible)

Descend over the lake and align aircraft to Runway 18, If possible maintain a slightly steeper approach and use reduced power setting(s)—assist in reducing engine noise while flying over residential areas.

“DENSITY ALTITUDE CAUTION”Prior to departure, please review the Airman’s Information Manual, regarding mountain flying/density altitude or Refer to the Aircraft Owner’s Manual regarding density altitude operations. Depart at as light a weight as practical. Double check the weight & balance of your aircraft,  takeoff distance, rate of climb and climb gradient figures. Check the local ASOS on 124.725 or call (530) 541-5739. For assistance and information call the FBO at (530) 541-2110.

We have enjoyed your visit with us—Please fly safe and come back soon to the “Lake In The Sky Airport”--TVL.
