FLL Part 150 Noise Compatibility Planning Study

The Broward County Aviation Department (BCAD) has begun a study to evaluate the aircraft noise compatibility of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) with the local communities. This study is called a “Part 150 Study” because it will follow the process outlined in Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 150 (Airport Noise Compatibility Planning). This includes creating Noise Exposure Maps (NEMs) and a Noise Compatibility Program (NCP). The NEMs show community exposure to certain levels of existing and future airport noise and identify uses that are noncompatible with those levels. The NCP recommends ways to address or reduce those non-compatible uses while preserving aviation safety and airport operational abilities.
