Incident at Fort Lauderdale (Hollywood) International Airport, FL (ATS operating irregularity)

Initial information from T.S.B. Initial Notification (#A05F0021): WestJet flight WJA913, a Boeing 737-700 airplane, registration C-FWSX, had taken off on runway 09L at Fort Lauderdale (Hollywood) International Airport, FL (U.S.A.) (KFLL) on a scheduled IFR flight to Toronto (LBPIA) (CYYZ). During the departure, a TCAS climb RA was received on the traffic that departed behind them. WJA913 employed a VNAP A vertical noise abatement procedure which resulted in their airspeed in the climb being significantly slower than the aircraft behind which maintained a normal speed profile. Separation between WJA913 and the following airplane decreased briefly below the required three (3) miles lateral separation. The VNAP A procedure is not used in the United States; rather, if noise abatement requires speeds different from normal climb speeds, they are integrated into the instrument departure instructions. The operator is briefing its pilots on the occurrence.
