The need to update the noise exposure maps was identified as a result of the public meetings and process used in the preparation of the 2002 Master Plan Update. Aircraft operation numbers and types of aircraft have changed since the preparation of the last Noise Exposure Maps, especially with the removal of military helicopter operations from the airport. The Noise Compatibility Recommendations contained in the previous Part 150 Study have not been amended and are still current. View the complete FAR Part 150 Noise Exposure Maps Update (PDF) and a summary on how aircraft noise is measured (PDF).
