The Longmont Municipal Airport has a voluntary noise abatement program. The Airport has developed the Voluntary Noise Abatement Procedures (VNAP) in an effort to be responsive to the concerns of our neighbors and to continue to provide an excellent facility for your use. Voluntary Noise Abatement Procedures (VNAP) are designed to minimize the exposure of residential and other noise sensitive areas to aircraft noise, while ensuring the safety of flight operations. Pilots are asked to follow the voluntary noise abatement procedures and “fly friendly” in an effort to be good neighbors to the citizens who live under the aircraft flight paths.

Use the links below to review Longmont Airport's Voluntary Noise Abatement Procedures (VNAP). Be advised the procedures are recommended for arrivals, departures and pattern operations at Longmont Municipal Airport. They are not intended to supersede the responsibility of the pilot for compliance with Federal Aviation Regulations, Air Traffic Control clearances and operating parameters of the Aircraft Operations Manual. All recommended procedures are at the pilot's discretion, consistent with safety.

For Safety of Flight, avoid midfield crossovers during active skydiving operations.
