  • Fly no lower than 1,000 feet AGL, if possible.
  • Fly on the downwind side of noise sensitive areas, if possible.
  • Maintain steady flight avoiding large pedal movements.

  • After the shortest acceleration feasible, climb at Vy using maximum continuous power.
  • Avoid flight over noise sensitive areas.

  • Fly no lower than 1,000 feet AGL, if possible.
  • Fly at 110 KIAS for OAT of +25°C. Increase IAS slightly if OAT is increasing and decrease IAS slightly if OAT is decreasing.
  • When possible, fly at the highest practical altitude over noise sensitive areas.
