Fly Quiet Test 2: Runway Rotation Updated for 12-Week Test Beginning April 30th

Post Date:04/17/2017 8:39 AM

The City of Wood Dale is a member of the Suburban O’Hare Commission (SOC). For the past year, the Suburban O’Hare Commission (SOC) has been working cooperatively with the O’Hare Noise Compatibility Commission (ONCC) and the Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) on the creation of an overnight runway rotation plan that mitigates overnight aircraft noise for the region. SOC invested our own resources to retain independent
aviation noise experts to assist in creating the first Fly Quiet Test.

SOC experts were also able to analyze data from the results of the first rotation test and make recommendations to improve the rotation plan for a second test, which will begin April 30, 2017. The updated rotation, detailed inside the below, is designed to better deliver on the promised noise mitigation throughout the region.

Residents are encouraged to stay involved and informed during the second Fly Quiet Runway Rotation Test period.
