Quieter Home Program - The Part 150 Study
Airport Noise Compatibility Study UPDATED April 2011
Being a good neighbor is important to everyone at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport, so we continue to work with the community to assess how noise from the airport is affecting the area. Below is the noise study to date.
The Federal Aviation Regulation Part 150 Study establishes a standard method airport operators can use to analyze the noise
created by airport operations. It also creates guidelines for acceptable noise abatement,
including aviation and land-use remedies. The Buffalo Niagara International Airport study examines existing noise conditions and
projected noise issues for a five-year period, identifying what effect noise has on those who live and work around the airport and
recommend appropriate mitigation and schedules.
