The noise footprint – especially during late-night hours, is on the downturn!

The East Hampton Airport has been working with fixed-winged aircraft owners, pilots, and their passengers to observe the voluntary curfew from 11:00 PM to 7:00 AM

NOISE ABATEMENT

Three Things Pilots Can Do.

Observe the Curfew

11:00 PM to 7:00 AM

Pilots should always be mindful of noise impacts at airports. Please work with your passengers to arrive prior to 11:00PM and depart after 7:00 AM.

Mind the Path

Observe Altitude and Flight Paths

During the flight-planning process, flight crews should familiarize themselves with the airport’s approach and departure noise abatement policies.

Starting Up & Shutting Down

Terminal arrival and departure policy

Please note other noise-related policies (maximum noise limits, curfews, usage of reverse thrust, engine run-up policies, etc.)

SAVE HTO

Why is it Important?

Z

Future operation is not guaranteed.

The existence of the East Hampton Airport is guaranteed only through the year 2021.

Z

Noise complaints are serious.

Because of the ever-increasing number of noise complaints the East Hampton Town Board is considering closing HTO permanently.

Z

A time consuming drive instead of flying.

It is a very real possibility that HTO would no longer welcome flights (both airplane and helicopter) from all its charter, corporate and private clients.

Z

Easy to follow curfew and policies.

By conscientiously heeding the noise concerns of local residents, fixed-wing operators following these curfews and approach and departure policies will help preserve the airport.
