        Pilots: Thank you for working with us by adhering to the following procedures:
        • Use best angle (Vx) for first 500 feet . . . then best rate (Vy) to achieve maximum altitude.
        • Intersection departures are discouraged.
        • Avoid shallow climbs and gain as much altitude as safely possible before leaving the airport environment.
        • Avoid flight over residential areas. Arrivals and departures over highways are preferred. 

        Pattern altitude: 7,231 light aircraft. 7,731 heavy aircraft.

        Curfew: There is a voluntary curfew on arrivals and departures between 10:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. As part of our "Good Neighbor" policy, we ask that you respect this curfew. We limit hours of service and fuel to discourage night operations.

        Voluntary Noise Abatement Procedures

        The City of Driggs has adopted voluntary noise abatement procedures for the Driggs-Reed Memorial Airport. Pilots arriving and departing from the airport are requested to use every means at their disposal to reduce the impact of noise on the Teton Valley Community.

        VFR ARRIVALS

        When entering the valley from the southwest over Pine Creek Pass, remain west of Highway 33. Remain west of Driggs and Victor and all neighborhoods that are east of Highway 33. Remain at or above 2000 feet AGL as long as practical before descending to pattern altitude.

        When entering the valley from the southeast over Teton Pass, follow Highway 33. Remain south of the town of Victor, fly northbound, west of Highway 33, to avoid flights over Victor and Driggs. Remain at or above 2000 feet AGL as long as practical until de­scending to pattern altitude.

        When entering the valley from the northwest over the Dry Farms, proceed directly to the airport. Remain at or above 2000 feet AGL as long as practical before descending to pattern altitude.

        When entering the valley from the north over Lamont, proceed directly to the airport. Remain west of Highway 32 and the town of Tetonia, at or above 2000 feet AGL as long as practical before descending to pattern altitude.

        VFR DEPARTURES

        Avoid departing over the city of Driggs. Avoid flying over neighborhoods and subdivisions to the east of Driggs.

        Runway 22: Turn right to a heading of 240° as soon as practical to avoid homes in Huntsman Springs subdivision. Continue climbing until above 2000 feet AGL, if possible.

        Runway 4: Turn left to a heading of 360°. Avoid flying over subdivisions east of Driggs.

        Flight School Operations:

        When practicing maneuvers, avoid flights over populated areas and developments (Driggs, Victor, Tetonia, Alta). When conditions and traffic permit, the requested practice area is north of Highway 33 and west of Highway 32.

        General noise considerations:

        When operating aircraft in Teton Valley, avoid flying over the city of Driggs, all neighborhoods east of Driggs, and the towns of Tetonia and Victor. Always fly at or above 2000 feet AGL in the valley until the descent to pattern altitude or landing configuration is required. Avoid unnecessary and lengthy ground run-ups, particularly for runway 4 departures.

        Flight operations between 2300 and 0700 are to be avoided.

        Right Traffic Pattern Runway 22

        Note: The procedures described above are intended to be voluntary noise abatement procedures and are subject to pilot discretion for safety reasons.
