FAA Invites Public Comment on Noise Policy Review

Posted on May 18, 2023 at 3:23 PM by Nancy McCormick

Loudoun County is passing along an opportunity for the public to provide feedback to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regarding aircraft noise. The FAA has scheduled webinars about aircraft noise as the agency conducts its Noise Policy Review (NPR), which the FAA indicates will help them address aircraft notice throughout the country. Members of the public may learn more by attending one of the upcoming webinars. In addition, the FAA is accepting comments submitted online, by mail, by FAX or hand-delivered until July 31, 2023.  

According to the FAA announcement, four key considerations of its civil aviation noise policy, are under review: recreational and commercial fixed wing airplanes, helicopters, commercial space transportation vehicles, unmanned aircraft systems, as well as emerging technology vehicles (newer types of vehicles that will operate in U.S. airspace).  

Public meetings via Zoom and YouTube: 

  • Thursday, May 18, 2023, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. 
  • Tuesday, May 23, 2023, 9:00 to 11:00 p.m. 
  • Thursday, May 25, 2023, 3:00 to 5:00 p.m.
