EBKT AD 2.21  Noise Abatement Procedures

1.1   Noise Certification

Aircraft operating to and from EBKT must be noise-certified according to ICAO Annex 16.

For touch-and-go flights, an airplane ≤ 2 T must be noise certified ≤ 76 dB(A) according to ICAO Annex 16.

1.2   Reverse Thrust

The use of reverse thrust should be kept to a minimum compatible with the safety of the aircraft.

2.1   Engine Test Runs and Idle Checks

Engine test runs in the open air must be restricted to the very minimum and are only allowed between 0800-1100 (0700-1000) and 1300-1700 (1200-1600). The Airport Authority has the right to stop or restrict all ongoing tests in case of violation of airport regulations or other circumstances that require such decision.

2.2   Power Supply

The APU shall be shut down at the earliest opportunity after arrival, not exceeding 30 MIN, and it may only be restarted when essential aircraft checks or cabin conditions require so before the planned departure, and this also not exceeding 30 MIN.

3.1   VFR Touch-and-Go Training

Keep an altitude of 1 000 FT until turning final, if compatible with the safety of the aircraft.

Keep the angle of descent as high as compatible with the safety of the aircraft.

Perform a gliding approach >3° with the lowest power setting possible.

Low approach with full flaps setting, high motor rotation speed and high pitch setting is forbidden.

4.1   Noise Abatement Take-off and Climb Procedures

For turbo-jet aircraft:

  • From take-off to 1 500 FT QNH:
    • take-off power;
    • take-off flaps;
    • climb to V2 + 10 to 20 KT or as limited by body angle;
  • At 1 500 FT QNH:
    • reduce thrust to not less than climb thrust;
  • From 1 500 FT QNH to 3 000 FT QNH:
    • climb at V2 + 10 to 20 KT;
  • At 3 000 FT QNH:
    • accelerate smoothly to en-route climb speed with flaps retraction.

For propeller aircraft:

  • From take-off to 1 000 FT QNH:
    • take-off power;
    • climb at a maximum gradient compatible with safety;
    • speed not less than single engine climb speed nor higher than best rate of climb;
  • At 1 000 FT QNH:
    • reduce power to the maximum normal operating power, if this power has been used for showing compliance with noise certification requirements or to the maximum climb power;
  • From 1 000 FT QNH to 3 000 FT QNH:
    • climb at the maximum gradient with reduced power, maintaining constant speed;
  • Above 3 000 FT QNH:
    • accelerate smoothly to en-route climb speed.

EBKT AD 2.22  Flight Procedures

1.1   VMC Aerodrome Minima

See ENR 1.2, § 1.1.

1.2   Communication

Incoming traffic shall contact Kortrijk Radio at least 5 MIN before entering the aerodrome traffic circuit. However, contact shall be made at MAX 15 NM from EBKT and MAX 3 000 FT AMSL.

Departing traffic shall contact Kortrijk Radio before taxiing.

1.3   Traffic Regulation

As the aerodrome is situated in uncontrolled airspace class G, it shall be noted that flights into and from EBKT operate at own risk as no ATC separation service is provided.

1.4   Traffic Information Between VFR Flights (Recommendations)
  1. VFR flights should report flying over the entry reporting points and, when in the traffic circuit, reporting beginning of downwind, turning base, base leg and final;
  2. All pilots should maintain two-way radio communication on FREQ 120.250 MHZ and continue to give their position reports;
  3. To enhance the “see and avoid” concept, all aircraft operating locally at EBKT are requested to keep their navigation, landing and anti-collision lights switched on and to keep a sharp look-out for other traffic.


3.1   Visual Reporting Points

VFR traffic shall use following reporting points:

AbbreviationAssociated landmarkPosition
EASTjunction motorway E17 and road N382 (Waregem-Anzegem)505217N 0032634E
NORTHjunction road N50 (Oostkamp-Kortrijk) and kanaal Roeselare-Leie505453N 0031614E
SOUTHjunction motorway A17 and road N58 (Moeskroen-Dottenijs)504346N 0031736E
WESTjunction motorway A19 and road N303 (Passendale-Wervik)505010N 0030044E
3.2   Inbound Traffic

Reporting point NORTH or SOUTH should be reported and overflown before entering the visual traffic circuit. At night, both points should be reported. Flying over the runway or the extended runway centre line shall be performed at 1 500 FT AMSL or above MNM.

3.3   Outbound Traffic

RWY 06: report leaving the traffic circuit at point EAST or NORTH

RWY 24: report leaving the traffic circuit at point SOUTH or WEST

3.4   Visual Traffic Pattern (Noise Abatement Procedure)

RWY 06:

  1. Take-off must be performed using the best rate of climb of the aircraft. Continue to climb straight ahead to 800 FT AMSL before turning left crosswind, continue the climb to circuit altitude 1 000 FT AMSL;
  2. The downwind leg is situated over the motorway A19 at 1 000 FT AMSL;
  3. Turn left base leg before the high tension line.

RWY 24:

  1. Take-off must be performed using the best rate of climb of the aircraft. Continue to climb straight ahead to 800 FT AMSL before turning left crosswind, continue the climb to circuit altitude 1 000 FT AMSL;
  2. The downwind leg is situated over the river Leie at 1 000 FT AMSL;
  3. Turn left base leg before the goods railway station of Kortrijk. In case traffic does not permit to turn base leg at this point, turn right out of the circuit, in order to avoid flying over the city of Kortrijk at low altitude, and rejoin the beginning of downwind.

Aircraft with radio communication failure shall fly overhead at 1 500 FT AMSL and consult the signal area before joining the traffic circuit.
