Noise and Community Affairs Committee within Florida Airports Council

Florida airports and stakeholders have created the Florida Airports Council (FAC)

The council represents the Florida airport community, and keeps members informed on key industry issues, offering a forum to address issues and to lobby local, state, and federal levels of government. There are several Specialty Committees within FAC.

The Noise and Community Affairs committee (NACA) brings together a progressive group of airport professionals and consultants who specialize in aircraft noise. This group seeks solutions and recognizes success. They issue awards for noise abatement and community outreach. The awards recognize proactive solutions to aviation noise issues.

Noise Abatement Award – Recognition of a project that reduces the impact of aircraft operations on a neighboring community using operational measures versus land use compatibility actions. Community Affairs Award – Recognition of a program or project that contributes to the education of the community regarding the benefits of the airport (economic and/or otherwise) and/or steps the airport is taking to positively influence public opinion regarding the airport.

 

Spotlight: Port of Portland

Aviation activities at Portland International Airport and general aviation airports in Hillsboro and Troutdale play significant roles in helping fuel the region's economy by connecting people and goods in this area with those around the globe. However, increased demands on the Port's aviation infrastructure have been borne at the cost of increased air traffic over our communities and the resulting aircraft noise that comes with it.

The Noise Management Department serves as the primary communications link between residents who depend on access to reliable air travel options and the air service providers that use PDX and other Port owned airports.

The job of the Noise Management Department is to listen carefully to the concerns of our community, affect change when possible, and support the aircraft operators and businesses that rely on PDX to conduct business while meeting the needs of the region.

The Port of Portland Noise Management website also provides a closer look at noise program operations through an educational video.
