COMMENTS

EXECUTIVE AIRPORT NOISE ABATEMENT PROGRAM:

In 1991, the airport installed a Noise Monitoring System. The system provides information on noise levels, aircraft types, altitudes and flight tracks. The information collected is used to monitor the status of noise abatement procedures and to develop new ones.

To help minimize noise in the community, several measures are currently in place:

1. A Full-time Noise Abatement Officer2. 24-Hour Noise Abatement Hotline to report aircraft noise.
3. Six permanent noise monitors and an operations monitoring system
4. Pilot Education Program
5. Airfield noise abatement advisory signs
6. Noise abatement brochures for Pilots with Noise Abatement diagrams
