11 11 Victoria Water Airport ______________________________________________________________________________ SAFETY and NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES (cont) Vessel/Aircraft Distance Separation Marine Vessel Lanes Taxi-Way For Bravo Operational Committees Recurrent Pilot Training Low-Tide Markers Reduced Water Taxi Operations – Area Alpha

12 12 Victoria Water Airport ______________________________________________________________________________ LEGISLATIVE FRAMEWORK SAFETY Aeronautics Act Canadian Aviation Regulations TC Regional Office Oversight NOISECanadian Aviation Regulations AIR QUALITYCanadian Aviation Regulations

13 13 Victoria Water Airport ______________________________________________________________________________ NOISE and AIR QUALITY Canadian Aviation Regulations (CARS) Part V – Airworthiness Airworthiness Manual Chapter 516

14 14 Victoria Water Airport ______________________________________________________________________________ All aircraft, both domestic and foreign, operating within Canada, must comply with the Noise and Engine Emissions Standards at the time of manufacturer and certification, as established by Annex 16, Volumes I and II, of the Convention of International Civil Aviation

15 15 Victoria Water Airport ______________________________________________________________________________ Noise Abatement/Mitigation Considerations Transport Canada has worked with the air operators, the airport manager, and the community to introduce Noise Mitigation Procedures such as the preferred use of Bravo over Alpha, however safety must always come first

16 16 Victoria Water Airport ____________________________________________________________________________ Noise and Air Quality CommitteeAnnually MEMBERS: TCCA, TC Programs, Nav Canada (NC), Resident. Assoc. Victoria Harbour Air Carriers Safety CommitteeMonthly MEMBERS: TCCA, TC Programs, NC, Air Operators, Marine Operators, CEO MV Coho, CEO Harbour Ferries Victoria Harbour Air Operators Safety CommitteeMonthly MEMBERS: TC Programs, TCCA, NC COMMITTEES (Stakeholder Engagement)

17 17 Victoria Water Airport ___________________________________________________________________________ OPERATIONAL COMPLAINT PROCESS Complaint submitted to Airport Manager Airport Manager acknowledges complaint to submitter Airport Manager reviews supporting information If complaint supported by independent information - alleged regulatory infraction referred to CA Enforcement - Pilot conduct – refers to air operator If complaint not supported, report completed & filed

18 18 Your correspondence to the Port of Victoria is acknowledged. Transport Canada staff will investigate your observation and if confirmed, will take appropriate action. Should we require additional information, we will initiate contact with you, otherwise, there will be no further response on this matter. Victoria Water Airport _____________________________________________________________________________ PORT of VICTORIAS RESPONSE TO OPERATIONAL COMPLAINTS

19 19 Victoria Water Airport Five Year Review ( ) ______________________________________________________________________________ CONCLUSIONS IN THE PAST FIVE YEARS: The number of aircraft movements has increased. Float Plane traffic is increasing; helicopter traffic is decreasing. The number of CADORS reported incidents is minimal (14 over five years). The number of founded enforcement actions resulting in sanctions is minimal. The percent of take-offs in Alpha and Bravo are static. On average, 70% of take offs are from Bravo. Civil Aviation, Programs & Nav Canada continue to introduce improvements. Air and Marine Operator consultation and engagement is a model. Victoria Harbour is seen as a potential model for other harbours (ie: Nanaimo )

20 20 Victoria Water Airport Five Year Review ( ) ______________________________________________________________________________ Mitigative actions for identified risks have proven effective. There are no new risk indicators that warrant a full Risk Assessment. Aviation operations are stable with a low number of incidents and minimal enforcement actions and noise complaints. CONCLUSIONS (Cont)

21 21 Victoria Water Airport Five Year Review ( ) ______________________________________________________________________________ RECOMMENDATIONS Continue Civil Aviations monitoring of & support to the Harbours operations & management. Continue enforcement action against alleged infractions. Continue focus on MAARS & CADORS Reports & follow-up. Continue encouragement of good neighbour and best practices ie:Use of Bravo Avoidance of reverse thrust Reduced rpm take-offs
