N.O.I.S.E. is pleased to share the following report from the NextGen Advisory Committee’s PBN Community Outreach Working Group. N.O.I.S.E. staff participated in this initiative and contributed to the report throughout the process. This report was accepted by the NAC on June 17th. N.O.I.S.E. President Brad Pierce and NAC Member said of the report, “The National Organization to Insure a Sound-Controlled Environment (N.O.I.S.E.) is encouraged by the NAC’s approval of these recommendations and continued focus on the need for robust community engagement. N.O.I.S.E. believes that community engagement and advocacy is key towards successful implementation of PBN and we will continue to work on the NAC and with the FAA to advocate for meaningful solutions to the impacts of aviation noise on our nation’s communities.”
While N.O.I.S.E. continues to advocate for our full federal agenda, which includes advocating to the FAA to update their noise metrics to accurately measure the new and changing impacts created by concentrated PBN flights, we believe that more robust and meaningful community engagement, education and advocacy is a meaningful step forward towards noise impacts being a central focus when PBN is implemented at our Nation’s airports.
