NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

There are no formal runway use programs at Memphis International Airport. However, the following are locally adopted procedures which are to be utilized except for flight safety reasons:

1) Turbojet aircraft shall not be authorized to turn nor assigned a heading which will result in an aircraft below altitude 3,000 traversing the residential areas north of Holmes Rd. E and east and west of the extended centerline of runways 18L/R as depicted on the attached map.

2) Turbojet aircraft departing runway 27 shall not be authorized to turn south until leaving 3,000 feet or two miles from the departure end of the runway to protect the area shown on the attached map.

NOTE: All turbojet aircraft flying below 3,000 feet shall be issued instructions that keep the aircraft from overlying the areas depicted.

Avigation Easements
1993
On May 5, 1993 a November 13, 1989 lawsuit against the airport was certified as Class Action. Subsequent settlement resulted in monetary payments to approximately 12,000 households. In return an avigation easement was imposed on all property located inside of the class area.
Zoning Laws
1991
In 1991 an Off-airport Land Use Study was undertaken to address impacts of airport growth(i.e. noise, land use changes), unplanned growth and aging structures in old neighborhoods. A land use plan was formed to achieve guidelines to help shape public and private actions, recommend amendments to zoning and building codes, coordinate capital budgets, and enact a buyout area redevelopment program.

COMMENTS

Airport Land Use Study, the purpose of which was to revise local Jurisdiction's comprehensive plans, zoning regulations and building codes in order to prevent the development of noise sensitive uses in areas exposed to significant aircraft noise levels. The Study provided recommended development concepts for the areas acquired or planned for acquisition by the Authority.
