Recommended Landing Procedure

Avoid landing from the north over the City of Hailey unless weather, aircraft performance, pilot experience and familiarity, or company operations specifications, necessitate otherwise. If landing from the north is necessary, arrivals should proceed inbound on east side of the valley, and/or per ATC instructions. Make modified left base over Hailey cemetery when able.

Notes:

  1. The Runway 13 threshold is displaced approximately 1,700 ft. The pavement behind the displaced threshold is NOT available for landing.
  2. Runway 13 slopes downhill approximately 0.74%

Use east side of the valley. Arriving aircraft should stay at or above PAPI glideslope over Bellevue as weather, aircraft performance, and ATC instructions allow. Safety is top priority.

NBAA APPROACH AND LANDING PROCEDURE VFR & IFR

  1. Landing gear retracted, minimum approach flaps and minimum maneuvering airspeed for configuration (Not less than 2,500 ft. above field elevation).
  2. Landing gear extension at the FAF (IMC) or not more than 4 miles from runway threshold (VMC).
  3. Final flap configuration delayed at pilot’s discretion, but must achieve a stabilized approach not lower than 500 feet (VMC) or 1,000 feet (IMC) to enhance noise abatement.
  4. Use Minimum reverse thrust, consistent with safety.

Note: Aircraft should meet stabilized approach criteria no lower than 1,000’ (IMC) or 500’ (VMC).

Recommended Departure Procedures

Avoid landing from the north over the City of Hailey unless weather, aircraft performance, pilot experience and familiarity, or company operations specifications necessitate otherwise.

Piston powered propeller driven aircraft reduce propeller RPM as soon as practical after takeoff.

North Bound-Routing North:
At a good rate of climb, make slight right turn at the departure end. Fly east side of the valley.

North Bound-Routing South:
Turn crosswind north of Hailey at or above pattern altitude.

Strait out Departures:
Climb as fast as practical and to the west side of the valley based on aircraft performance, ATC instructions, and safety considerations.

North Bound Departures:
Climb as fast as practical and to the west side of the valley based on aircraft performance, ATC instructions, and safety considerations. Upon reaching pattern altitude execute left or above downwind north bound.

Jet and Turbo Prop aircraft use aircraft manual noise abatement procedures (NBAA) to 3,000 AGL.

NBAA CLOSE-IN DEPARTURE PROCEDURE

  1. Maximum practical rate of climb not to exceed V2+20 (max pitch altitude 20o) to 1,000 feet AAE in takeoff configuration at takeoff thrust.
  2. At 1,000 feet AAE, begin acceleration to final segment speed and retract flaps. Reduce to a quet climb power setting while maintaining a rate of climb necessary to comply with IFR departure procedure, otherwise a maximum of 1,000 FPM, at an airspeed not to exceed 190 KIAS until reaching 3,000 feet AAE. If ATC requires level off prior to reaching NADP termination height, power must be reduced so as not to exceed 190 KIAS.
  3. Above 3,000 feet AAE resume normal climb schedule with gradual application of climb power.

Notes: No configuration changes below 400 ft. (except landing gear retraction). Ensure compliance with applicable IFR climb and airspeed requirements. For a takeoff with an initial assigned altitudes within 1,500’ of the airport elevation (AAE), pilots may elect to climb at V2+20 in the takeoff configuration until necessary for level-off at the assigned altitude. This recommended procedure is not intended to preempt the reponsibilities of the pilot-in command for safe aircraft operation. Ensure compliance with application IFR climb and airspeed requirements and ATC instructions.

The Airfield Operations & Emergency Services assures compliance with FAA airport certification mandates which govern airports served by commercial air carriers. The FAA conducts an annual inspection to ensure compliance with federal certification requirements. Operations is also responsible for emergency planning and response, including Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) services and other safety requirements. Operations also regularly maintains all airport facilities and operations equipment. It seeks to minimize any adverse impact of aircraft noise on the surrounding community through pilot education and other noise abatement programs.
