Airport and Community Solutions to Reduce Noise

Quick Link ARRIVALS Map

Voluntary NO FLY Curfew 10 pm - 7 am. Help support the airport's "Good Neighbor" policy!

In 2001, TTAD developed a set of procedures for arriving and departing flights designed to minimize impacts to the community. Thank you for working with us by adhering to the following procedures.

  • Use best angle (Vx) for first 500 feet . . . then best rate (Vy) to achieve maximum altitude. Intersection departures are discouraged.
  • Avoid shallow climbs and gain as much altitude as safely possible before leaving the airport environment.
  • Avoid flight over residential areas. Arrivals and departures over highways are preferred.
  • Pattern altitude: 7,000 light aircraft. 7,500 heavy aircraft.
  • Curfew: There is a voluntary curfew on arrivals and departures between 10:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. As part of our "Good Neighbor" policy, we ask that you respect this curfew.
  • We limit hours of service and fuel to discourage night operations.
