Troutdale Airport - Noise Abatement Program
Operating an airport near residential areas while ensuring a safe and efficient air transportation system is a nationwide challenge. Courteous and responsible pilots are the key to a successful noise management program. Key elements of a successful program are avoiding unnecessary residential overflights and flying as quietly as safety permits.
Please help us maintain a Good Neighbor relationship with the surrounding communities by following the recommended noise abatement procedures illustrated in the section below. Safety always supersedes fly neighborly procedures. The procedures described in this guide are not intended to preempt the prerogative or responsibilities of the pilot-in-command for aircraft operation. The procedures also are not intended to conflict with ATC instructions, which are the exclusive authority of the FAA.
Be courteous–fly neighborly.
