Revised Teterboro VFR Departure Procedure Effective March 7
February 25, 2013
A revision to the VFR Dalton departure procedure off Runway 19 at New Jersey's Teterboro Airport (TEB) will be published on March 7. The Dalton 2 Departure Procedure will be available only by pilot request. Pilots must ensure they are completely familiar with the restrictions on the procedure due to the close proximity of overhead arrivals into Newark Liberty International (EWR) Runway 22. The revised procedure will maintain the 1,300 feet altitude restriction and a turn to heading 280 after departure will need to be completed within 2.4 nautical miles DME of the Teterboro VOR. NBAA urges pilots to familiarize themselves with the altitude and heading requirements for the procedure before requesting it. For more information, contact NBAA's Dean Snell at firstname.lastname@example.org. Review details on the revised TEB procedure. Learn More
Teterboro Runway 19 Departure Procedure to Be Revised Apr. 5
March 19, 2012
A revision to the VFR Dalton departure procedure off Runway 19 at New Jersey’s Teterboro Airport (TEB) will be published on April 5. The procedure will remain the same except for the elimination of the requirement to climb to 800 feet prior to starting the turn to heading 280. The revised procedure will allow pilots to start the turn prior to reaching 800 feet, but the turn must still be completed within 2 nautical miles (nm) DME from the airport. Pilots should still use caution, as there are two towers within 4 nm DME of Teterboro, to the south, 510 feet high, and southwest, 695 feet high. FAA advises pilots to familiarize themselves with the altitude and heading requirements for the procedure before requesting it. Learn More

New Teterboro Departure Procedures Now in Use
August 31, 2009
The FAA has implemented two new departure procedures for Teterboro Airport (TEB). Eligible RNAV-equipped airplanes will be assigned the RUUDY TWO procedure when departing Runway 24. Operators flying the RUUDY TWO procedure must cross WENTZ waypoint at 1,500 feet and TASCA waypoint at 2,000 feet as charted. Departures over WHITE and DIXIE waypoints now include a new waypoint, ELVAE, prior to the Colts Neck VOR (COL). The Teterboro Six procedure requires airplanes departing Runway 24 to maintain a 240 degree heading until 1,500 feet then turn right to heading 280 degrees and cross 4.5 DME from Teterboro VOR (TEB) at 1,500 feet (non-DME equipped aircraft must cross the Colts Neck VOR (COL) 011 degree radial at 1,500 feet), then climb and maintain 2,000 feet and proceed via vector to the assigned route or fix. For more information, contact NBAA's Dean Saucier at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Pilots Urged to be Alert and Avoid New EMAS at Teterboro
December 18, 2006
Pilots have indicated that the engineered material arresting system (EMAS) arrestor bed at the end of Runway 6 at Teterboro Airport (TEB) is indiscernible at night. Consequently, two aircraft have taxied into the bed since it was installed in mid-October. EMAS systems are designed to stop aircraft in overrun emergencies. Those aircraft may be traveling much faster, but the EMAS systems are just as effective at taxi speeds. The airport diagram for Teterboro does not depict the EMAS installment, but the bed is currently painted with bright yellow end-of-runway chevrons. To further accentuate the location of the EMAS bed, TEB management is considering additional options. For more information, contact NBAA's Operations Service Group at firstname.lastname@example.org.

August 22, 2005
As part of their ongoing work to represent the business aviation community at Teterboro Airport (TEB), staff from NBAA and the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) last week met with airport officials and business aircraft operators at TEB. NBAA Senior Vice President, Government Affairs Lisa Piccione and NBAA Northeast Regional Representative Dean Saucier were joined by GAMA Vice President for Government Affairs Brian Riley for a meeting with TEB Airport Manager Lanny Rider and, separately, with several representatives from NBAA Member Companies. The meetings, which included discussion of the variety of operational safety and noise reduction initiatives in place at TEB, were among the recent efforts the two associations have undertaken in response to recent calls by federal and local officials for reductions in aircraft traffic at the airport.
NBAA Continues Work to Represent Business Aviation at Teterboro Airport
August 1, 2005
In response to recent calls for reductions in aircraft traffic at New Jersey's Teterboro Airport (TEB), NBAA's staff has been active in raising concerns about the proposed traffic curbs among federal and local stakeholders. In Washington last week, NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen met with Rep. Steve Rothman (D-9-NJ), who has called for 25-percent reductions in traffic at TEB. While no definitive conclusions were reached, Rep. Rothman indicated his desire to continue discussions with NBAA on matters related to Teterboro Airport. NBAA staff members also were available at a meeting last week of the Teterboro Aircraft Noise Abatement Advisory Committee to answer questions about the proposed traffic restrictions and outline mobilization efforts to date. NBAA's meetings in Washington and New Jersey are the latest in a series of efforts the Association has undertaken to preserve full access to Teterboro Airport for business aircraft operators.
FAA Letter to Port Authority of NY and NJ Challenges Calls for Restrictions on Access to Teterboro
July 11, 2005
Last week, the FAA sent a letter to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey in response to recent calls from Port Authority officials for reductions in business aircraft traffic at New Jersey's Teterboro Airport (TEB) as a means of enhancing safety. In their letter, FAA officials state: "...We do not see any relation between safety and the kinds of restrictions on airport use you are proposing." The letter goes on to state that the specific proposals offered by the Port Authority to reduce traffic – including noise restrictions, aircraft weight limits and airport fees for business aircraft operators – would be subject to review under federal law. NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen commended the FAA for its letter. "We applaud FAA officials for making clear what NBAA has said all along: aircraft activity levels are not a precursor to, or a cause of, accidents. I hope that this letter will prompt a reasoned discussion of effective measures to enhance safety at Teterboro Airport."
Bolen Opinion Piece in Bergen Record Challenges Calls for Restrictions on Access to Teterboro Airport
July 3, 2005
In response to recent calls for reductions in business aircraft traffic at New Jersey's Teterboro Airport (TEB), NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen submitted an editorial to the Bergen Record defending access to the airport for the business aviation community. Bolen's opinion piece, which was published in the July 3 edition of the paper, points out that proposals to reduce traffic as a means of enhancing safety are based on the flawed assumption that aircraft activity levels are causally linked to airplane accidents when the data tells a different story. "There are several general aviation airports in the U.S. that handle more traffic than Teterboro, and they are clearly safe," Bolen points out in his editorial. "Thus, high aircraft activity levels are not a precursor to, or a cause of, accidents." Bolen's opinion piece calls for a deliberative approach to making safety improvements at TEB that is based upon determination of underlying reasons for accidents.
NBAA Continues Work to Represent Business Aviation at Teterboro
June 27, 2005
In light of recent calls from public officials in the Morristown, NJ, area for significant reductions in aircraft traffic at Teterboro Airport (TEB), NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen last week submitted an opinion piece for publication in two local newspapers to bring clarity and reason to the debate about safety at TEB. Bolen's piece, which was submitted to the Bergen Record and Newark Star-Ledger, states: "There is no question that the incidents at Teterboro serve as a reminder that safety must remain the highest priority at the airport. But reducing aircraft operations at Teterboro is not the appropriate solution." Bolen's opinion piece is just one aspect of NBAA's ongoing effort to represent the business aviation community at TEB. NBAA has worked on TEB policy with current and former public officials, including former Acting FAA Administrator Joseph Del Balzo, whose own opinion piece on TEB safety recently appeared in the Bergen Record.
Bolen and other NBAA officials continue to meet with representatives from the FAA and Port Authority of New York and New Jersey on TEB safety, and NBAA Northeast Regional Representative Dean Saucier recently attended a local public hearing on the issue.
NBAA Files Objections to Proposed Obstructions Near Teterboro
NBAA recently filed objections to the placement of various buildings and a Ferris Wheel in the immediate vicinity of Teterboro Airport (TEB) in New Jersey. The buildings and other structures are being proposed by the Meadowlands Mills/Mack-Cali Limited Partnership. All structures generally underlie the final approach course to Runway 01 at TEB. In each of five cases, the proposed structures exceed FAA obstruction standards and would represent hazards to air navigation. NBAA said in its filings, "It is imperative for FAA to do everything within its power to protect our airspace, as an asset for the entire aviation industry."
FAA Invites Comments on Proposed Antenna Tower Near Teterboro
The FAA is conducting an aeronautical study concerning the construction of a proposed antenna tower 421 feet above ground level (AGL) near Runway 01 at New Jersey’s Teterboro Airport and is taking comments until June 2, 2004. Although the antenna and a proposed Ferris Wheel (see related story, April 19 NBAA Update) are not expected to affect instrument approaches, they could become a factor in circling to land as well as on glide path VASI approaches to Runway 01 at TEB.
Comments should be sent to FAA Eastern Region, 1 Aviation Plaza-AEA-520, Jamaica, NY 11434; reference 2004-AEA-633-OE.
Second Customs Facility Added at TEB
