Voluntary Noise Control Program

Noise Control Program 

To better respond to the concern of our neighbors, the Department of Aviation for the City of Dallas has developed a Voluntary Noise Control Program for Dallas Love Field.

  • Nighttime Preferential Runway (RWY 13R/31L) for all jet aircraft and any aircraft weighing over 12,500 pounds, between the hours of 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.

  • Noise abatement departure procedure (Trinity Departure) for night operations on Runway 13R for all turbojet aircraft and aircraft weighing over 12,500 pounds.

  • Prohibition on aircraft engine maintenance run-ups between the hours of midnight and 6:00 a.m. Expanded to a voluntary moratorium between 10:00 p.m. and midnight.

  • Aircraft use optimal take-off profile.

Pilots are instructed to observe all ATC instructions. At no time is operational safety to be compromised.
