noise abatement procedures do affect > things like stated above (climb/departure procedures). The classic example being John Wayne in Orange County (SNA). Taking off there is pretty fun.. a very steep initial climb, a little levelling off and a cut in the power. It's also interesting to watch from the ground.. I once saw an America West 737 take it REALLY steep. Didn't last very long at that angle, the captain brought the nose down sooner and faster than normal, which I'm sure felt really good to the passengers..=) Funny thing about all the extra work to quiet things down, the planes are still pretty noisy in Newport Beach (under the flight path).
