The ONCC Ad Hoc Fly Quiet Committee met on Thursday, September 21, 2017. 

The Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) presented the final Fly Quiet Runway Rotation Test 2 Report, highlighting some of the changes that had been made based on feedback they received from members and consultants. CDA consultants provided supplemental data on Wide Body Operations on Runways Less Than 10,000 feet and Aircraft Fleet Mix Report for Operations on Non-Scheduled Runways, as per the request of Committee members at the previous Ad Hoc Fly Quiet Committee Meeting when the draft report was first presented.

 CDA staff also reviewed weekly reports to date for Fly Quiet Runway Rotation Test 3. Once that test concludes on October 15, CDA staff will prepare a draft report for the Committee’s review. CDA staff reminded the committee that once the test ends, nighttime operations will return to regular Fly Quiet (with no rotation) until ONCC can approve an interim plan.

The committee is expected to reconvene in mid-November.
