Noise Abatement

ATTENTION RESIDENTS OF GREATER ORLANDO:

At the request of the FAA, we share the following important update:

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued a Finding of No Significant Impact-Record of Decision for the South-Central Florida Metroplex, which is the agency’s plan to modernize air traffic procedures for 21 airports in the southern half of the state. The agency posted the document and the Final Environmental Assessment (EA) on the Florida Metroplex Environmental website.

  • The decision enables the FAA to move forward with new satellite-based procedures that will enhance safety and efficiency. The FAA plans to implement the new procedures in mid-2021.
  • The project includes new arrival and departure procedures for Miami, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood, Palm Beach, Orlando, Tampa and St. Pete/Clearwater international airports and 15 smaller airports.
  • The FAA conducted extensive outreach to the public before issuing its final decision on the project. The agency held 29 public workshops and 2 public comment periods totaling 120 days in 2019 and 2020. The agency also evaluated and responded to 3,239 comments in the Final EA.
  • The agency conducted the EA in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), which requires the FAA to identify and publicly disclose the potential environmental impacts of the proposed procedures.
  • The environmental documents are available at 117 public libraries in the study area. Residents who are not online may contact their local libraries to access the document.

Aviation Noise Abatement Committee (ANAC)

The Aviation Noise Abatement Committee (ANAC) is scheduled to meet on the second Friday of every month at Orlando International Airport, and members of the public are welcome to attend to ask questions or share concerns.

The Aviation Noise Abatement Committee meeting scheduled for Friday, November 13, 2020, has been cancelled for lack of a specific agenda and due to no member of the community having expressed interest in addressing ANAC. Per ANAC bylaws, the December meeting will be mandatory. The next ANAC meeting is scheduled to be held on Friday, December 11, 2020 at 10:00 AM in the Carl. T. Langford Board Room.

PLEASE NOTE: Governor DeSantis recently announced that the State of Florida was moving to Phase 3 of its “Safe. Smart. Step-by-Step Plan” for Florida’s Recovery.  The Authority continues to adhere to all public guidance by federal, state, local officials, including state regulatory agencies. As such, current protocols for face coverings and social distancing will be observed at Sunshine Meetings, meeting rooms will be set up for limited audience seating, keeping 6 feet of space between each seat, and limited staff will be present at the meetings.

Agendas and minutes of previous meetings may be viewed under Sunshine Meetings on our Airport Business page.

The Noise Abatement Programs in place at MCO and ORL achieve noise exposure reductions through establishment of:

The GOAA noise abatement program brings together all stakeholders to reduce noise and educate the public regarding operations at its airports.  MCO has a number of voluntary noise abatement procedures that have been in effect since the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, including:

  • Preferential runway use favoring south flow operations
  • Assigned headings on departures to the north
  • Nighttime noise abatement headings
  • Designated engine run-up areas

Noise abatement measures at ORL define specific helicopter approach and departure paths to minimize flights over residential areas.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has sole authority and responsibility for routing and separating aircraft throughout the National Airspace System, and their first priority is always the safe and efficient separation and routing of aircraft. At any time, weather conditions, operational needs or day-to-day airfield maintenance may prevent the implementation of noise abatement procedures.

Information concerning aircraft activity and noise exposure at specific sites can be obtained by contacting 407-825-2674 or Noise Abatement Manager.

Operational Procedures

While safety is paramount to all air traffic operations, noise sensitivity to the surrounding communities is also of key importance.  The following information describes the voluntary noise abatement procedures and typical aircraft routings that are in place at MCO.

Preferential Runway Use (18L/R, 17L/R)

Preferential Runway Use

When conditions permit, the FAA will conduct south flow operations.  Aircraft will arrive from the north (red arrows) and depart to the south (green arrows).

Nighttime noise abatement routes are in place during north flow operations.  Between 11:00 PM and 7:00 AM, departing aircraft will be directed to the east on climb-out, away from long-established communities.

 

Aircraft Routing at MCO

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is solely responsible for the control of aircraft traffic (Air Traffic Control-ATC) inside the U.S. National Airspace System (NAS).  The Authority operates an Aircraft Noise and Operations Monitoring System (ANOMS) that provides noise and flight tracking information.

The image below depicts actual flight tracks at MCO over a period of 24 hours during south flow operations. The image below depicts actual flight tracks at MCO over a period of 24 hours during north flow operations.
MCO South Flow Flight Tracks MCO North Flow Flight Tracks
Arrivals are depicted in red; departures are depicted in blue.

Have you ever wondered just how busy Florida skies are? Take a look at 24 hours of flights in just over two minutes, beginning at KMCO – Orlando International Airport.

Federal Legislation

The FAA regulates the maximum noise level that an individual civil aircraft can emit through requiring aircraft to meet certain noise certification standards. Each noise certification standard is designated as a different Stage in the U.S. Any aircraft that is certified for airworthiness in the U.S. must also comply with noise standard requirements to receive a noise certification. The purpose of the noise certification process is to ensure that the latest available safe and airworthy noise reduction technology is incorporated into aircraft design and enables the noise reductions offered by those technologies to be reflected in reductions of noise experienced by communities. As noise reduction technology matures, the FAA works with the international community to determine if a new stringent noise standard is needed. If so, the international community embarks on a comprehensive analysis to determine what that new standard will be.

Compatible Land Use

GOAA has acquired property and implemented a sound insulation program in high noise exposure areas to improve the compatibility between off-airport land use and aircraft overflight activity. Local governments have enacted ordinances that require future development to be compatible with aircraft noise exposure. In addition, certain areas around MCO and ORL are subject to avigation easements (establishing the right of unobstructed flight in specified airspace), waiver of claim, and/or notice of aircraft activity. These represent forms of notification that overflights occur today or will occur in the future as a result of growth in aircraft activity and planned runway development. It should be noted that there are off-airport areas affected by aircraft operations that do not include a site specific notification.

Airport Noise Overlay District

The Aircraft Noise overlay district is intended to protect the health, safety and welfare of persons and property in the vicinity of Orlando’s two airports.  Click on the airport code to view the noise environments arising from flight operations at MCO and ORL. Information on airport noise impact areas is available at Orange County Land Development, and at Municode

 

The Aviation Noise Abatement Committee (ANAC) has 10 voting members representing both impacted and non-impacted communities as well as technical and Aviation Authority appointed members. The Committee also has non-voting members representing various government entities and a Noise Abatement Officer. Members and the Noise Abatement Officer may be contacted via the Noise Office at: 407-825-2674 or by e-mail to the: Noise Abatement Manager

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has the authority and is responsible for controlling aircraft noise by regulating source emissions. The FAA’s Air Traffic Control has the authority to implement noise abatement operational procedures which have been recommended by the airport proprietor and have been shown to be consistent with air safety and all legal requirements.

The Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA) is responsible for planning and implementing actions designed to reduce the effect of noise on residents of the surrounding area. Such actions include noise abatement procedures, land acquisition and other controls that do not discriminate, create an unsafe situation, impede the management of the air navigation system, or interfere with interstate or foreign commerce.

 

Casper Flight Tracker

Orlando Flight Tracker is a web-based tool that allows the public to follow, capture and review flight activity in the vicinity of their homes, schools and businesses in near-real time. Noise complaints may also be filed from this site.  Our goal is to provide you with useful information about flight operations taking place at Orlando International Airport (MCO) and Orlando Executive Airport (ORL). We invite you to learn, share and stay in touch.

To access Orlando Flight Tracker, please click on the map.

Organization

Orlando International Airport is managed by the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority, which is governed by a seven-member board; the mayor of the City of Orlando, the Mayor of Orange County, and five other members who are appointed by the Governor of the State of Florida, subject to confirmation of the senate.
