The Fly Quiet Committee met on Thursday, April 22 via Zoom teleconferencing

The CDA gave a final summary of the Interim Fly Quiet program, which ran from November 2019 through the last week of January 2021, with a construction pause during summer 2020. The 48-week program had an average start time of 10:32 pm and stop time of 6:16 am. The average time in Fly Quiet mode was approximately 7 hours and 44 minutes with 47 percent designated runway usage.

The remainder of the meeting focused on suggested modifications to alternatives B and H. The committee continues to focus on reviewing and revising these two alternatives.

The next Fly Quiet meeting will be held on May 27 at 9:30 am via Zoom teleconferencing.

The ONCC Technical Committee met on April 20, 2021 via Zoom teleconferencing.

2020 Annual Runway Usage
The CDA reported on the 2020 annual runway usage for all hours. The major takeaway was that the optimum use is on east/west runways. However, the crosswind runways are used as much as 250 times per year in conjunction with the east/west runways. Wind conditions dictate use. With the proper outreach to the airlines, the crosswind runways could be utilized more in the future Fly Quiet program.
