Federal Regulations Governing Part 150

The federal regulations and guidance for Part 150 may be found here.

Noise Exposure Maps for the Update Study

The first phase of the FAR Part 150 Study Update will include the development of new noise exposure maps – a current noise exposure map for the year 2020, and a future noise exposure map for the year 2025. These maps will be developed over the next few months and posted on this page when they are ready.

Noise Exposure Maps for the Original Study

The maps developed in PTAA’s original Part 150 study also included a current map and a future map. The Federal Aviation Administration approved these maps, which were used as a basis for creating the current Noise Compatibility Program.  The Noise Exposure Maps are scaled, geographic depictions of the airport, its noise contours and surrounding area. The 2006 base case and 2014 forecast Noise Exposure Maps developed in the original study may be viewed below or by clicking here (2006) and here (2014). 



Part 150 Study Approved by the FAA in 2008

The supporting documentation, which makes up part of the Noise Exposure Maps, is listed in the Federal Register notice as the Revised Final Report for the PTI Part 150 Study. The FAA accepted the report and Noise Exposure Maps as being complete per Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations Part 150 and approved in part all 20 PTAA recommended Noise Compatibility Program measures.
