VOLUNTARY NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

Within the vicinity of Longmont Vance Brand Airport are noise sensitive areas. By using your aircraft's quietest departure techniques and following the guidelines and procedures below, we can reduce the noise impact on our neighbors. The City of Longmont has adopted Voluntary Noise Abatement Procedures (VNAP) and requests that resident and visitor aircraft comply with the VNAP described below.

Please Use Common Sense and Be Considerate to Airport Neighbors
