The ONCC Fly Quiet Committee met on June 23, 2020 via Zoom video conference. View Presentation

Alternative B Feedback Review
CDA reviewed committee member comments received on Fly Quiet Alternate B.

  • In favor of alternating north and south airfield
  • In favor of 2 departure headings per runway
  • Request that Full Length departures be the default and use Intersection Departures if there is an operational need
  • Revise configuration schedule to avoid consecutive impacts
  • Some say include RNAV others say do not
  • Concerns with departure impacts overlapping arrival impacts
  • Concerns with diagonal utilization
    • Less predictability
    • More operations on east/west runways
    • Long runway issue
      • Will a north airfield runway suffice?
      • Will the CDA be willing to close south airfield to force north airfield runway usage?
  • Develop an alternative without the diagonals

Fly Quiet 21 Runway Configurations
CDA presented available or potential runway configurations that may be used in FQ21. They reviewed hybrid configurations, which combined crosswind runways with the east/west runways. They also highlighted the possible potential configurations that may be able to be used:

  • Visual Only – Would only be able to be used when weather allows, where air traffic can see the aircraft due to the fact that there are converging flight paths.
  • Jet Blast – Certain configurations would require further analysis to determine if jet blast from departures could impact arrivals and/or ground movement of vehicles, equipment and other aircraft.

The next Fly Quiet Committee meeting is scheduled for August 20, 2020.
