Fresno Yosemite Intl Airport

Fresno, California, United States

Noise Abatement Information - Last update 05/22/2014



Small Single-engine and Multiengine Airplanes
(Maximum certificated takeoff weight less than 12,500 lbs)

After takeoff, climb on runway heading until passing 850’ MSL (single-engine) or 1000’ MSL (multiengine). For safety and noise abatement, initial climb out at best rate-of-climb (Vy) is recommended.

Arrival & Departure

Turbojet and Large Multiengine Airplanes:
(Maximum certificated takeoff weight over 12,500 lbs)

– Ensure contact with ATC prior to entering Class “C” airspace. Expect left-hand traffic pattern for Runway 11L — right-hand pattern for Runway 29R.

– When conducting VFR test-, check-, or training-flights and making approaches to Runway 11L, maintain at or above 2000’ MSL until established on a 5 nautical mile (localizer DME) final. A normal approach path (approximate 3 degree angle) will be flown on final. No practice missed-approaches or go-arounds to Runway 11L.

– Opposite direction approaches to Runway 11L are not authorized when Runway 29R is in use.

– Runway 11L Preferential Usage: Should Runway 29R be in use, large turbojet aircraft will receive an ATC clearance for an opposite-direction takeoff on Runway 11L between the local hours of 2400 and 0500.

– After takeoff, climb on runway heading until at or above 2000’ MSL, as rapidly as practicable.

Test- or check-flights, practice landings and low approaches, and stop- or touch-and-go operations are permitted only between 0700 and 2200 local time Monday through Saturday, and between 1000 and 1800 local time on Sundays.
