  Mandatory Restrictions

All Runways  |  All Aircraft Categories  |  Arrival & Departure

Rules and Regulations as set forth have been adopted by Official Resolution of the Board of County Commissioners in the interest of safety and efficient operations. — Revised August 1989

300.31 Intersection Take-Off
There shall be no intersection take-offs permitted in the interest of Noise Abatement except under special conditions and with the approval of ATCT.

500.3 Noise Abatement Procedures
Because of the one runway orientation, the National Business Aircraft Association Noise Abatement Procedure has been adopted for the Cuyahoga County Airport, utilizing the “Close-in” procedure for communities less than 10,000 feet from brake release point.

Special Conditions
Flying over or near school located south of the extended centerline of Runway 24, 1850’ from the end of the Runway and 14’ perpendicular to the Runway centerline, is prohibited.

  Curfews

All Runways  |  All Aircraft Categories  |  Arrival & Departure

Voluntary Noise Abatement Curfew 11:00 PM local to 7:00 AM local.

Aircraft maintenance engine run-ups not authorized after 9:00 PM local and before 9:00 AM local.

Flight training discouraged during Voluntary Noise Abatement Curfew.

  Departures

All Runways  |  All Aircraft Categories  |  Departure Only

All turbojet, turbo-prop, and multi-engine aircraft to climb out to a minimum altitude of 1900 feet MSL (mean sea level) or a minimum distance of 2 miles before making any turns. Single engine aircraft to be allowed earlier turn out as required for safe operations and to afford minimum separation from higher performance aircraft.

  Preferential Runways

All Aircraft Categories  |  Arrival & Departure

Runway 24 is the preferred or calm wind runway.

  Reverse Thrust

All Runways  |  All Aircraft Categories

Minimal use of reverse thrust consistent with safe flight operations and runway conditions is encouraged

  Pattern Altitudes

ALL VALUES ARE MSL (FEET)



All Runways  |  All Aircraft Categories

Turbine aircraft 2400 feet MSL
Piston aircraft 1900 feet MSL

  Intersection Takeoffs

All Runways  |  All Aircraft Categories

300.31 Intersection Take-Off
There shall be no intersection take-offs permitted in the interest of Noise Abatement except under special conditions and with the approval of ATCT.

  APU Use

APU use discouraged. Use of power cart encouraged.

  Engine Runup

Aircraft maintenance engine run-ups not authorized after 9:00 PM local and before 9:00 AM local. ATCT in coordination with Airport Management will designate a remote run- up area; typically Taxiway A between A3 and B2.

  Flight Training

Voluntary Noise Abatement Curfew 11:00 PM local to 7:00 AM local.

  AOPA Noise Awareness Steps

Following are some general guidelines and techniques to minimize the noise impact produced by aircraft operating near the ground.

1. If practical, avoid noise-sensitive areas such as residential areas, open-air assemblies (e.g. sporting events and concerts), and national park areas. Make every effort to fly at or above 2,000 feet over the surface of such areas when overflight cannot be avoided.

2. Consider using a reduced power setting if flight must be low because of cloud cover or overlying controlled airspace or when approaching the airport of destination. Propellers generate more noise than engines; flying with the lowest practical rpm setting will reduce the aircraft's noise level substantially.

3. Perform stalls, spins, and other practice maneuvers over uninhabited terrain.

4. Many airports have established specific noise abatement procedures. Familiarize yourself and comply with these procedures.

5. To contain aircraft noise within airport boundaries, avoid performing engine runups at the ends of runways near housing developments. Instead, select a location for engine runup closer to the center of the field.

6. On takeoff, gain altitude as quickly as possible without compromising safety. Begin takeoffs at the start of a runway, not at an intersection.

7. Retract the landing gear either as soon as a landing straight ahead on the runway can no longer be accomplished or as soon as the aircraft achieves a positive rate of climb. If practical, maintain best-angle-of-climb airspeed until reaching 50 feet or an altitude that provides clearance from terrain or obstacles. Then accelerate to best-rate-of-climb airspeed. If consistent with safety, make the first power reduction at 500 feet.

8. Fly a tight landing pattern to keep noise as close to the airport as possible. Practice descent to the runway at low power settings and with as few power changes as possible.

9. If a VASI or other visual approach guidance system is available, use it. These devices will indicate a safe glidepath and allow a smooth, quiet descent to the runway.

10. If possible, do not adjust the propeller control for flat pitch on the downwind leg; instead, wait until short final. This practice not only provides a quieter approach, but also reduces stress on the engine and propeller governor.

11. Avoid low-level, high-power approaches, which not only create high noise impacts, but also limit options in the event of engine failure.

12. Flying between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. should be avoided whenever possible. (Most aircraft noise complaints are registered by residents whose sleep has been disturbed by noisy, low-flying aircraft.)

Note: These recommendations are general in nature; some may not be advisable for every aircraft in every situation. No noise reduction procedure should be allowed to compromise safety.
