PHASE 2 - PROJECT MILESTONES

Existing Conditions Aircraft Noise Analysis

  • Collect and process 12-month set of radar flight track and flight plan data (2005). – completed December 14, 2006
  • Conduct comparison analysis between 2005 and 2006 to confirm that 2005 provides a reasonable representation of existing conditions. completed January 31, 2008
  • Identify major traffic flows for each runway, operation mode and aircraft category per the noise modeling protocol procedure. – completed September 17, 2008
  • Develop INM generalized flight tracks and profiles as prescribed by the noise modeling protocol. – completed April 3, 2009
  • Develop average annual day operations input file for each of the six major configurations and average annual day condition. – completed September 17, 2008
  • Develop aircraft ground movement tracks and associate average annual day operations to each route. – June 1, 2009
  • Calculate noise metrics using appropriate models stated in the noise modeling protocol. – March 30, 2009
  • Compare single event outputs results with measured noise data provided by IC. – completed July 8, 2009
  • Modify operational input data, as appropriate, to achieve acceptable comparisons between modeled and measured results for aircraft types. – completed July 8, 2009
  • Calculate and document existing conditions noise impacts per the noise modeling protocol. completed October 2009
