Airport & Business Events
The Indianapolis Airport Authority's 2013 noise exposure map update and report (PDF) was accepted by the FAA on April 3, 2014. A summary of the report is also available.
Launched in 1987, IAA's noise mitigation program includes an update initiative every five years. Previous noise exposure studies and maps are reviewed, with particular emphasis on air traffic and operational projections. Update studies were conducted in 1992, 1997, 2003, 2008, and 2013.
The analysis process of all relevant material gathered during the update process resulted in the production of an updated map of the airport's noice contours as forecasted through 2018. This material was also used to analyze the effectiveness of the airport's existing noise compatibility plan.
The updated maps show minor differences between the existing conditions and future (2018) forecast conditions.
Based on the latest findings, no changes to the current noise mitigation program were recommended. The airport's current guaranteed purchase, purchase assurance/sound insulation, and sales assistance programs will continue for homeowners in those areas previously identified.
