2009 Noise Compatibility Program Update
The 2009 Noise Compatibility Program Update was prepared by WYLE Aviation Services of Arlington, Virginia. One of the prime components of the Wyle program was to update the Airport’s official Noise Exposure Maps (NEMs).
Questions addressed existing conditions for 2009 included:
- How many operations occur at SAT on an average day?
- How do Air Traffic Controllers and pilots determine which runway to use?
- What types of aircraft operate at SAT?
- How does this affect noise levels around SAT?
Question addressing future conditions (2014) included:
- How many and what types of aircraft will fly into and from SAT in 2014?
- What changes at the airport will occur, that might affect where aircraft fly?
- How much noise can I expect to hear in the future?
The Wyle report and proposed 2014 Noise contour map was presented to and approved by the San Antonio City Council in April of 2009. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved the plan update and the 2014 Noise Contour Map in May of 2009.
