Ground Run-Up Enclosure
YVR's Ground Run-Up Enclosure (GRE) facility is the first of its kind in Canada. Its purpose is to reduce noise from engine run-ups on surrounding communities. It dulls noise by absorbing and redirecting sound away from residential areas.
With its aerodynamic design and innovative sound-absorbing panels, the GRE showcases the latest in noise-reducing technology. Located on the south side of the airport, the main users of the facility are twin propeller commuter aircraft.
