NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES


    Information is correct per airport 3/2/98
    Noise Abatement Procedures
    
    1.  Reaffirmation of Calm Wind Runway 13R & 13L
    
        Distribution of air traffic to the southeast will lower the impact over
        developed areas northwest of the facility.  Use of
        runway 13R occurs approximately 42 percent of the time.
    
    2.  A/C 91053 Noise Abatement Departure Procedures
    
        Jet aircraft originally designed for air carrier use will be
        requested to use the AC 91-53 noise abatement procedure.
    
        Departure Procedures:
        Jet aircraft originally designed for general aviation use will be
        requested to use NBAA close-in departure procedures or as specified in
        flight manuals of specific aircraft types.
    
    3.  Takeoff Thrust Application
    
        The application of full thrust while taxiing or before fully aligned
        with runway centerline tends to increase noise complaints near runway end.
        Approved as a voluntary measure.
    
    4.  Short Visual Approach to Runway 31L
    
        Short final segment of the runway 31L approach for aircraft entering
        from the northeast could result in reduction of the perceived long gradual
        approach segment.
    
    5.  Three visual approach and departure corridors have been defined for
        helicopters using the airport. (a copy of the procedures and map
        is on file).

AIRPORT CURFEWS

            
    Information is correct per airport 3/2/98
    (voluntary)
    2300-0600 Airport control tower not open, no scheduled jet air carrier
    arrivals after 2200 or departures before 0700.

PREFERENTIAL RUNWAYS


    Information is correct per airport 3/2/98
    Partial preferential use of Runway 13R & 13L during calm wind conditions.

OPERATING QUOTA

ENGINE RUN-UP RESTRICTIONS

         
    Info per airport 11/15/96
    The airport has designated certain approns and taxiways as
    possible run up locations.  On the rare occasion that an air
    carrier jet aircraft has to do a run-up, the aircraft is
    orientated along Taxiway A with the exhaust toward the departure
    runway 31L. An alternate location for jet aircraft has been
    designated on Taxiway W north of Taxiway B with the nose of
    the airplane pointing southward.
    
    The holding apron at the intersection of Taxiway A and W
    serves for routine pre-flight run-ups for aircraft using
    runway 31L.  On the north end, these run-ups are preformed
    of Taxiway C prior to departure on runway 13R. The intersection
    of Taxiway E and J serves the light general aviation aircraft
    using runway 13L.
    
    The airport also has a hush-house (SkyWest)maintenance facility.
    Maintenance run-ups, which were once a major source of
    complaints, are routinely conducted in the hush-house and
    complaints have dropped dramatically.  The facility is
    available to other operators of turboprop aircraft for
    maintenance run-ups.

    Approval of Revision No. 1 to the Approved Noise Compatibility
    Program for Palm Springs Regional Airport, Palm Springs, CA

    AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.

    ACTION: Notice.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its
    findings on Revision No. 1 to the Approved Noise Compatibility Program
    for the Palm Springs Regional Airport, submitted by the city of Palm
    Springs, California, under the provisions of Title I of the Aviation
    Safety and Noise Abatement Act of 1979 (Pub. L. 96-193) (hereinafter
    referred to as ``the Act'') and 14 CFR part 150. These findings are
    made in recognition of the description of Federal and non federal
    responsibilities in Senate Report No. 96-52 (1980). On November 28,
    1994, the FAA determined that the Noise Exposure Maps, submitted by the
    city of Palm Springs, California under 14 CFR part 150, were in
    compliance with applicable requirements. On July 25, 1995, the
    Associate Administrator for Airports approved the Noise Compatibility
    Program for Palm Springs Regional Airport. On March 19, 1997, the
    Associate Administrator for Airports approved Revision Number 1 to the
    Approved Noise Compatibility Program for Palm Springs Regional Airport.
    One (1) additional measure to the approved program was approved.

    EFFECTIVE DATE: The effective date of the FAA's approval of the Noise
    Compatibility Program for Palm Springs Regional Airport is March 19,
    1997.

    Street Address: 15000 Aviation Boulevard, Room 3012, Hawthorne,
    California 90261. Documents reflecting this FAA action may be reviewed
    at this same location.

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA has given
    its overall approval to Revision No. 1 to the Approved Noise
    Compatibility Program for Palm Springs Regional Airport, effective
    March 19, 1997. Under section 104(a) of the Aviation Safety and Noise
    Abatement Act of 1979 (herein after referred to as the ``Act''), an
    airport operator who has previously submitted a Noise Exposure Map may
    submit to the FAA a Noise Compatibility Program which sets forth the
    measures taken or proposed by the airport operator for the reduction of
    existing non compatible land uses and prevention of additional non
    compatible land uses within the area covered by the Noise Exposure
    Maps. The Act requires such programs to be developed in consultation
    with interested and affected parties including local communities,
    government agencies, airport users, and FAA personnel.
        Each airport Noise Compatibility Program developed in accordance
    with Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) Part 150 is a local program,
    not a Federal Program. The FAA does not substitute its judgment for
    that of the airport sponsor with respect to which measures should be
    recommended for action. The FAA's approval or disapproval of FAR Part
    150 program recommendations is measured according to the standards
    expressed in Part 150 and the Act, and is limited to the following
    determinations:

        a. The Noise Compatibility Program was developed in accordance
           with the provisions and procedures of FAR Part 150;
        b. Program measures are reasonably consistent with achieving the
           goals of reducing existing noncompatible land uses around the
           airport and preventing the introduction of additional non compatible
           land uses;
        c. Program measures would not create an undue burden on
           interstate or foreign commerce, unjustly discriminate against types
           or classes of aeronautical uses, violate the terms of airport grant
           agreements, or intrude into areas preempted by the Federal
           government and;
        d. Program measures relating to the use of flight procedures can
           be implemented within the period covered by the program without
           derogating safety, adversely affecting the efficient use and
           management of navigable airspace and air traffic control
           responsibilities of the Administrator prescribed by law.

        Specific limitations with respect to FAA's approval of an Airport
    Noise Compatibility Program are delineated in FAR part 150, section
    150.5. Approval is not a determination concerning the acceptability of
    land uses under Federal, State or local law. Approval does not, by
    itself, constitute an FAA implementation action. A request for Federal
    action or approval to implement specific Noise Compatibility Measures
    may be required and an FAA decision on the request may require an
    environmental assessment of the proposed action. Approval does not
    constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the
    implementation of the program nor a determination that all measures
    covered by the program are eligible for grant-in-aid funding from the
    FAA under the Airport and Airway Improvement Act of 1982, as amended.
    Where Federal funding is sought, requests for project grants must be
    submitted to the FAA Airports Division Office in Hawthorne, California.
        The city of Palm Springs, California submitted to the FAA on March
    3, 1994, the Noise Exposure Maps, descriptions, and other documentation
    produced during the Noise Compatibility Planning study conducted from
    September 23, 1993 through July 18, 1995. The Palm Springs Regional
    Airport Noise Exposure Maps were determined by FAA to be in compliance
    with applicable requirements on November 28, 1994. Notice of this
    determination was published in the Federal Register on December 16, 1994.
        The Palm Springs Regional Airport study contained a proposed Noise
    Compatibility Program comprised of actions designed for phased
    implementation by airport management and adjacent jurisdictions from
    the date of study completion to or beyond, the year 1999. It was
    requested that the FAA evaluated and approve this material as a Noise
    Compatibility Program as described in section 104(b) of the Act. The
    FAA began its review of the program on January 26, 1995 and was
    required by a provision of the Act to approve or disapprove the program
    within 180-days (other than the use of new flight procedures for noise
    control). The Noise Compatibility Program was approved by the FAA on
    July 26, 1995. On September 27, 1996 the FAA began its review of
    Revision No. 1 to the approved program and was required by a provision
    of the Act to approve or disapprove the program within 180-days (other
    than the use of new flight procedures for noise control). Failure to
    approve or disapprove such program within the 180-day period shall be
    deemed an approval of such program.
        The submitted revision to the approved program contained one (1)
    proposed action for establishing a permanent noise and flight track
    monitoring system. The FAA completed its review and determined that the
    procedural and substantive requirements of the Act and FAA part 150
    have been satisfied. Revision Number 1 to the Approved Noise
    Compatibility Program, was therefore approved by the Associate
    Administrator for Airports effective March 19, 1997.
        Outright approval was granted for the one (1) new Continuing
    Program Measure for provision of establishment of a permanent noise and
    flight track monitoring system.
        This determination is set forth in detail in a Record of Approval
    endorsed by the Associate Administrator for Airports on March 19, 1997.
    The Record of Approval, as well as other evaluation materials, and the
    documents comprising the submittal, are available for review at the FAA
    office listed above and at the administrative offices of the Palm
    Springs Regional Airport.

        Issued in Hawthorne, Calif. on March 28, 1997.

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA has given
    its overall approval of the Noise Compatibility Program for Palm
    Springs Regional Airport, effective July 25, 1995.
        Under Section 104(a) of the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act
    of 1979 (herein after referred to as the ``Act''), an airport operator
    who has previously submitted a Noise Exposure Map may submit to the FAA
    a Noise Compatibility Program which sets forth the measures taken or

    uses within the area covered by the Noise Exposure Maps. The Act
    requires such programs to be developed in consultation with interested
    and affected parties including local communities, government agencies,
    airport users, and FAA personnel.

    with Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) Part 150 is a local program,
    not a Federal Program. The FAA does not substitute its judgment for
    that of the airport proprietor with respect to which measures should be
    recommended for action. The FAA's approval or disapproval of FAR Part
    150 program recommendations is measured according to the standards
    expressed in Part 150 and the Act, and is limited to the following
    determinations:
        a. The Noise Compatibility Program was developed in accordance with
    the provisions and procedures of FAR Part 150;
        b. Program measures are reasonably consistent with achieving the
    goals of reducing existing non compatible land uses around the airport
    and preventing the introduction of additional non compatible land uses;
        c. Program measures would not create an undue burden on interstate
    or foreign commerce, unjustly discriminate against types or classes of

    [[Page 43487]]
    specific Noise Compatibility Measures may be required and an FAA
    decision on the request may require an environmental assessment of the
    proposed action. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA
    to financially assist in the implementation of the program nor a
    determination that all measures covered by the program are eligible for

    Improvement Act of 1982, as amended. Where Federal funding is sought,
    requests for project grants must be submitted to the FAA Airports
    Division Office in Hawthorne, California.
        The city of Palm Springs submitted to the FAA on March 3, 1994, the
    noise exposure maps, descriptions, and other documentation produced
    during the noise compatibility planning study conducted from September
    23, 1993 through July 18, 1995. The Palm Springs Regional Airport noise
    exposure maps were determined by FAA to be in compliance with
    applicable requirements on November 28, 1994. Notice of this
    determination was published in the Federal Register on December 16,
    1994.
        The Palm Springs Regional Airport study contained a proposed Noise
    Compatibility Program comprised of actions designed to phased
    implementation by airport management and adjacent jurisdictions from
    the date of study completion to the year 1999. It was requested that
    the FAA evaluated and approve this material as a Noise Compatibility
    Program as described in section 104(b) of the Act. The FAA began its
    review of the program on January 26, 1995 and was required by a
    provision of the Act to approve or disapprove the program within 180-
    days (other than the use of new flight procedures for noise control).
    Failure to approve or disapprove such program within the 180-day period
    shall be deemed an approval of such program.
        The submitted program contained twenty-six (26) proposed actions
    for noise mitigation on and off the airport. The FAA completed its
    review and determined that the procedural and substantive requirements
    of the Act and FAR part 150 have been satisfied. The overall program,
    therefore, was approval by the Associate Administrator for Airports
    effective July 26, 1995.
        Outright approval was granted for twenty-four (24) of the twenty-
    six (26) specific program measures. One (1) measure approved the use of
    NBAA departure procedures while the use of Advisory Circular 91-53A
    denature procedure for air carrier aircraft was disapproved pending
    submission of additional information. The other measure was deferred
    pending further review of flight procedures under the provisions of
    Section 104(b) of the aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act of 1979
    (as amended). The approved measures included such items as encourage
    noise abatement departure profiles by jets; encourage delayed
    application of taxing thrust until aligned with runway centerline;
    maintain continued restrictions on engine maintenance runups; continue
    short approaches to R/W31L by northeast arrivals; build a noise berm
    along the south side of Vista Chino; extend noise wall on west side of
    Runway 13R-31L; retain compatible land uses around the airport within
    the 60 CNEL; amend several parcels in the General Plan from residential
    to commercial or professional; adopt land use compatibility guidelines
    for discretionary review of projects within the 60 CNEL; rezone several
    existing parcels from residential to professional or commercial; amend
    subdivision regulations to provide for the dedication of aviation
    easements and filing of fair disclosure agreements for subdivisions
    within the airport combining zoning boundary; conduct an acoustical
    study of recently built homes within the 67-70 CNEL; amend building
    codes setting forth sound insulation standards for use within the
    airport combining zones; offer a sound insulation program for existing
    single family homes within the 65 CNEL; acquire homes and vacant lots
    inside future runway protection zones and within the 65 CNEL; through
    site plan review, encourage development of properties north and south
    of airport to screen adjacent homes (north) and school (south) from
    ground noise; maintain a complaint response system, and review and
    update Noise Exposure Maps and the Noise Compatibility Program as
    necessary.
        These determinations are set forth in detail in the Record of
    Approval endorsed by the Associate Administrator for Airports on July
    25, 1995. The Record of Approval, as well as other evaluation
    materials, and the documents comprising the submittal are available for

    SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces that it is
    reviewing a proposed Noise Compatibility Program that was submitted by
    the city of Palm Springs for Palm Springs Regional Airport (PSP), Palm
    Springs, California under the provisions of Title I of the Aviation
    Safety and Noise Abatement Act of 1979 (Public Law 96-193) (hereinafter
    referred to as ``the Act'') and 14 CFR part 150. This program was
    submitted subsequent to a determination by the FAA that associated
    Noise Exposure Maps submitted under 14 CFR part 150 for were in
    compliance with applicable requirements effective November 28, 1994.
    The proposed Noise Compatibility Program will be approved or
    disapproved on or before July 25, 1995.
    
    EFFECTIVE DATE: The effective date of the start of the FAA's review of
    the Noise Compatibility Program is January 26, 1995. The public comment
    period ends March 27, 1995.
    
    FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:
    Howard S. Yoshioka, Planning Section Supervisor, Federal Aviation
    Administration, Western-Pacific Region, P.O. Box 92007, Worldway Postal
    Center, Los Angeles, California 90009-2007, (310) 297-1250. Comments on
    the proposed Noise Compatibility Program should also be submitted to
    the above office.
    
    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA is
    reviewing a proposed Noise Compatibility Program for Palm Springs
    Regional Airport which will be approved or disapproved on or before
    July 25, 1995. This notice also announces the availability of this
    program for public review and comment.
        An airport operator who has submitted Noise Exposure Maps that are
    found by the FAA to be in compliance with the requirements of Federal
    Aviation Regulations (FAR) part 150, promulgated pursuant to Title I of
    the Act, may submit a Noise Compatibility Program for the FAA approval
    which sets forth the measures the operator has taken or proposes for
    the reduction of existing noncompatible uses and for the prevention of
    the introduction of additional noncompatible uses.
        The FAA has formally received the Noise Compatibility Program for
    Palm Springs Regional Airport, effective on January 26, 1995. It was
    requested that the FAA review this material and that the noise
    mitigation measures, to be implemented jointly by the airport and
    surrounding communities, be approved as a Noise Compatibility Program
    under Section 104(b) of the Act. Preliminary review of the submitted
    material indicates that it conforms to the requirements for the
    submittal of Noise Compatibility Programs, but that further review will
    be necessary prior to approval or disapproval of the program. The
    formal review period, limited by law to a maximum of 180 days, will be
    completed on or before May 15, 1991.
        The FAA's detailed evaluation will be conducted under the
    provisions of 14 CFR part 150, section 150.33. The primary
    considerations in the evaluation process are whether the proposed
    measures may reduce the level of aviation safety, create an undue
    burden on interstate or foreign commerce, or be reasonably consistent
    with obtaining the goal of reducing existing noncompatible land uses
    and preventing the introduction of additional noncompatible land uses.
        Interested persons are invited to comment on the proposed program

    Land Use Management as stated in the NCP
    
    1.  Noise Overlay Zoning
    
    Noise combining zone (N-zone) is based on 1986 60 CNEL (Ldn) contours.
    Whereby N-zone recommendations prohibit noncompatible land uses within
    the 60 CNEL.
    
    2.  Compatible Use Zoning
    
    Nearly all of the privately held, undeveloped land in the proposed
    noise overlay zone is underlaid with zoning, which either will not permit
    residential uses or will do so only as a conditional use.
    
    3.  Building Codes for Soundproofing
    
    Currently, building codes are used to meet state energy requirements.
    The R-value required under the code should also meet the NLR (noise level
    reduction) values for noise reduction for structures in the N-zone.
    
    4.  Easement and Nonsuit Covenant
    
    Present practice for requiring avigation easements and nonsuit covenants for
    all property in the N-zone should be expanded to clearly identify that the
    property is located in a Noise-Impacted area and that these impacts may change
    from time to time.  Full disclosure is highly recommended.
    
    Noise Barriers: Walls
    1/4/94:
    Note: Skywest Airlines has built a hush house for its maintenance facility
    on the east side of the airfield.  A noise wall has also been constructed by
    the airport at the northwest end of the field.
        
    
    Noise Barriers: Land Use
    
    Because of the high exterior and interior noise levels to the west, land uses
    in the N-1-P tract should provide structures that provide as much shielding as
    possible.  Orientation of development to the west would maximize the view of
    the mountains and the airport and desert to the east and would maximize the
    noise shielding to a high degree.  Landscaping throughout would further reduce
    noise.
