    Noise abatement departure procedure

      Special NADP established at EBBR! Turbojet aircraft have to apply the following procedure: Take-off to 1700':

    • Take-off power
    • Take-off flaps
    • Climb at V2 + 10 to 20kts or as limited by body angle

    At 1700':

    • Take-off power
    • Climb at MAX gradient compatible with safety
    • Speed not less than single engine climb speed, nor higher that best rate of climb speed

    At 3200':

    • Accelerate smoothly to enroute climb speed

      Prop aircraft have to apply the following procedure: Take-off to 1700':

    • Take-off power
    • Climb at MAX gradient compatible with safety
    • Speed not less than single engine climb speed, nor hogher that best rate of climb speed

    At 1700':

    • Reduce thrust power to MAX normal operating power (if this power has been used for showing complieance with noise certification requirements) or to MAX climb power

    From 1700' to 3200':

    • Climb at MAX gradients with reduced power, maintaining constant speed

    At 3200':

    • Accelerate smoothly to enroute climb spee
