Runway Rotation Plan Test Program

Print

The 6-month test for the overnight Runway Rotation Plan will take place from July 3 - December 24, 2016.
In order to assess whether the rotation is providing the intended benefits, we need to hear from you!
SOC experts will continue to analyze flight paths and data from noise monitors, but this entire program
is designed to bring noise relief to residents. If you’re feeling a reduced impact from the noise, we need
to know so that we can make the rotation permanent. If you’re not feeling any noise relief, we need to
know that too, so that we find out what’s not working.

For the duration of the 6-month Rotation Plan test, the O’Hare Noise Compatibility Commission will host
a survey which residents are encouraged to visit on a regular basis to report their feedback on overnight
noise conditions. This data can then be aggregated on by time period and location and compared
with the actual flight paths used during that time period to determine whether operations are having
unanticipated impacts on residential neighborhoods.
