Naples Airport Authority is initiating a voluntary study to assess its airport noise compatibility planning. The Noise and Land Use Compatibility Update, also known as a Part 150 study, provides a structured approach for airport operators, pilots, neighboring communities, and the FAA to evaluate opportunities to address community concerns regarding noise exposure, while preserving safety and operational capabilities of the airport.
As part of the NAA’s objective to include extensive public involvement, it is forming a Technical Advisory Committee for the two-and-a-half-year study that will include community volunteers representing the city and county. Interested citizens are encouraged to apply. For information about the Technical Advisory Committee, membership criteria, and the application process, visit www.flynaples.com/part-150-noise-study/. Applications must be received by Tuesday, Dec. 31, 2019.
Naples Airport is ideally located within minutes of downtown Naples, the Gulf of Mexico and I-75, connecting people to the Paradise Coast through an exceptional airport experience. The airport serviced 112,800 annual operations in the last fiscal year, while being an engaged, responsive partner to the community. Home to flight schools, air charter operators, car rental agencies, and corporate aviation and non-aviation businesses, the airport is also a central location for public services, including fire/rescue services, mosquito control, the Collier County Sheriff’s Aviation Unit and other community services.
All funds used for the airport’s operation, maintenance and improvements are generated from activities at the airport or federal and state grants from aviation-related user fees. The airport receives no local tax dollars. The Florida Department of Transportation values the airport’s annual economic impact to the community at more than $440 million.
