  17. 17. Deep Thoughts… Together we are better… Don’t tell someone you’re gonna give them a baby & then hand them a newborn rat… Participating in the Part 150 program is like joining the U.S. military…
  18. 18. Sponsor Consultant FAA HQ & Region FAA ADO Together We Are Better… Involve FAA ADO (or RO where appropriate) early & often!
  19. 19. Don’t tell someone you’re gonna give them a baby & then hand them a newborn rat… <ul><li>Manage Expectations (Sponsor & Especially Public) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>ROA approval criteria outlined in 14 CFR Part 150 should be in forefront during brainstorming & NCP development. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Make sure ATO is at the local table & if they are not, get your ADO/RO involved. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Understand the FAA review process. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>ADO/RO should not see the NEM &/or NCP for the 1 st time when they are “formally” submitted to the FAA for approval or acceptance. </li></ul></ul>
  20. 20. Participating in the Part 150 Program is like joining the U.S. military… <ul><li>Program participation is voluntary. But… once you volunteer, the program “owns” you until you withdraw. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>14 CFR Part 150 Requires </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>NEM Updates: </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>When there is a change (+ or -) in yearly Day-Night Average Sound Level (DNL) of 1.5 decibels (dB) or greater over noise sensitive land uses; </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>NCP Updates: </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>When NEMs reveal previously non-compatible becomes compatible or vice versa; </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>When NCP elements become no longer applicable because they were based on previous NEMs </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>When new NCP measures are proposed or needed </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Previously approved NCP measures affected by changes in new noise contours need to be updated in order to remain eligible for funding. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>On-going mitigation measures near completion may remain eligible for purposes of n’hood equity. </li></ul></ul></ul>

  28. 28. Sample Inventory & Reuse Plan RPZ Land Possible Sale Land
  29. 29. Sample Inventory & Reuse Plan
  30. 30. Status of Inventory & Reuse Plans Submittals to FAA <ul><li>The FAA resolution of the 2005 OIG Audit requires that airport sponsors with AIP grant assisted noise buy-out programs submit their inventory and re-use plan no later than October 2009. </li></ul><ul><li>TO DATE: The 11 airports cited in the OIG report have all submitted their re-use plans. Most of the remaining 106+/- airports with current or past AIP assisted programs are expected to submit their inventory and plan by the October 2009 deadline. </li></ul>
  31. 31. What’s Next? <ul><li>FAA will review for acceptance of compliant inventory and re-use plans by June 2010. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>If not acceptable at submission, corrective action with the airport sponsor will be necessary, such as: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Verify inventory as accurate and complete for all AIP assisted noise land acquisition. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Correct/confirm proposed re-use and terms of re-use meet grant assurance requirements. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Ensure compatible land use rights are retained and enforced. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  32. 32. What’s Next? <ul><li>What happens if airport sponsor does not submit inventory and plan by October 2009? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The OIG will be advised and the FAA Office of Airport Compliance and Field Operations will take appropriate action. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Compliance issues may result in formal finding of non-compliance with grant assurances and loss of grant funding. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Resolution and corrective action will be needed. </li></ul></ul>
  33. 33. What’s Next? <ul><li>Ongoing Program? Yes. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Airports will need to maintain their inventory and re-use plans. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Per Grant Condition on all noise land acquisition grants since 2006, the airport agrees to submit the inventory and reuse plan prior to grant close-out. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>FAA will monitor re-use plans as part of ongoing land use inspections. </li></ul></ul>
  34. 34. Lesson’s Learned? <ul><li>The Grant Assurance only applies to noise land acquired with AIP grant funds after 1982. Land acquired with ADAP (pre 1982 acquisition) is not covered. </li></ul><ul><li>Noise land may be converted to accommodate eligible airport development. See AIP handbook (FAA Order 5100.38C) at paragraph 701 for general description of allowable conversion, such as: runways, taxiways, associated safety areas, ramps, aprons …. RPZ …, Some Landside development as described in the AIP Handbook as eligible airport development. NO PAYBACK REQUIRED ON ELIGIBLE CONVERSION. NOTE: PAYBACK AT FMV REQUIRED FOR CONVERSION TO INELIGIBLE AIRPORT DEVELOPMENT OR TO NON AERONAUTICAL REVENUE PRODUCING. </li></ul>

  36. 36. FAA Sound Insulation Guidelines for Residential Properties Rick Etter, Acquisition Specialist HQ FAA, Office of Airport Planning & Programming (202) 267-8773; rick.etter@faa.gov
  37. 37. Guidelines for Sound Insulation of Residences Exposed to Aircraft Noise <ul><li>Published in 1992 for military and FAA airports programs as a project management handbook for studying, initiating, and implementing sound insulation measures developed under airport noise compatibility programs. (FAA AC 150/5100-9A ) </li></ul><ul><li>The Guidelines were updated in 2005 by the U.S. Navy for application at military airports in part to reflect current building codes and insulation product specifications. </li></ul><ul><li>A similar update of the Guidelines would also benefit FAA airport noise programs. However, the update for FAA programs would need to retain and update the FAA-approved project management and AIP grant management requirements. </li></ul>
  38. 38. Guidelines for Sound Insulation of Residences Exposed to Aircraft Noise <ul><li>What is being looked at for the Update: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Product specifications for sound insulation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Code requirements / changes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sound reduction testing and sampling methods </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Possible computer based estimating facility </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>FAA AIP acceptance standards </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Project management guidance </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Measure of energy conservation benefits </li></ul></ul>
