View Full Version : JFK Thrust Reduction / Acceleration Altitudes

Could anyone give me a reference if the JFK Thrust Reduction / Acceleration Altitudes are 1500'/3000' AGL. My Company is insisting on using these values and I wonder where they picked this data from? Thanks!

Can only speak for UAL - our standard acceleration/noise abatement altitude is 800' AGL unless specifically otherwise specified :confused: :} - i.e. ICAO profile in Europe 1500 thrust redux/3000 acceleration or John Wayne :confused:SNA which is a complete law unto itself :ooh:

I dont believe JFK specifies ICAO profile - like Chicago they want you to get the hell out of there and accelerate!
