ACTION: CLT Airport Noise Mitigation

Charlotte Douglas Airport is hosting two drop-in style meetings to listen to public input about airport noise mitigation and impacts within the greater Charlotte region. All are welcome to attend the meetings, which will focus on the Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) Part 150 Noise Compatibility Study.

The public engagement process seeks community input on proposed strategies and changes to departure flight paths from the airport. These proposed changes could serve to modernize antiquated flight paths, improve Airport efficiency, and offer substantial reductions in fuel burn and carbon emissions, in addition to the benefits from dispersed aircraft noise.

The meetings are scheduled for:

Tuesday, November 14 | 6pm – 8pm
Harris Conference Center at Central Piedmont Community College
3216 CPCC Harris Campus Drive, Charlotte NC

Thursday, November 16 | 6pm – 8pm
Embassy Suites by Hilton Charlotte
4800 South Tryon Street, Charlotte NC

No formal presentations are planned, and the same information will be presented at both meetings.

Airport staff and noise consultants will be available at both sessions to answer questions and provide information regarding the study.

The Airport Community Roundtable (ACR) has spent the last five years evaluating airspace procedures and airport noise impacts within the greater Charlotte region. At the ACR’s request, in 2022, CLT Airport initiated the Part 150 process with a consultant to evaluate recommendations for improving noise mitigation and dispersion.

This is the second series of public engagements for Part 150. CLT hosted two meetings in March where it presented the preliminary information and received comments. CLT Airport welcomed 29 citizens and received 20 comments.
