Noise Abatement At Peterborough


Peterborough Airport will institute noise abatement procedures July 4 that will affect aircraft manoeuvring in the immediate vicinity of the airport. After that date, aircraft will not be allowed to turn below 1,000 feet above aerodrome elevation and must, if possible, avoid flying over noise-sensitive areas depicted on the above photo. One of those areas is almost adjacent to the runway.

Peterborough has become increasingly busy in recent years. Flying Colours, a business jet modification and refitting company, rotates dozens of jets through the facility each year and Seneca College’s flight training program recently relocated there from Buttonville, which is under a closure watch. There are also several busy maintenance and aviation parts businesses located on the field along with an independent flight school.
