Noise Abatement
San Gabriel Valley Airport

The County-owned airports are surrounded by noise sensitive residential and commercial areas. In order to mitigate potential negative impacts from aircraft operations and enhance compatibility with the surrounding communities, the Department of Public Works maintains a proactive noise mitigation program with requested VFR flight paths, operational restrictions, and limited activities during certain hours of the day.

In consideration for the communities surrounding the County-owned airports, pilots are requested to operate their aircraft in the quietest practical manner consistent with safety and Air Traffic Control instructions.

  1. Runway 19 arrivals --non-standard right-hand pattern.
  2. Runway 1 arrivals -- standard left-hand pattern.
  3. No touch-and-go landings or pattern practice between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m.
  4. Runway 19 VFR departures --when speed and altitude permit, bear right and follow wash until crossing 10-Freeway and reaching 1,300 feet MSL before executing any turn.
  5. Runway 1 VFR departures -- if departing pattern, turn right and remain over wash until reaching 1,300 feet MSL.
