Patrick Leahy Burlington International Airport Sound Mitigation Program

For over 30 years, the Patrick Leahy Burlington International Airport (BTV) has been committed to participating in the voluntary Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) sponsored Part 150 program. Part 150 assesses and quantifies noise impacts from aircraft noise and develops a Noise Compatibility Program (NCP) to minimize those impacts. The approved NCP allows BTV to access grant funds to implement the approved program.

The Noise Exposure Maps for 2018 and 2023 were submitted to the Federal Aviation Administration on September 24, 2019. A copy of that document can be found HERE. The Federal Aviation Administration determined the Noise Exposure Map to be in compliance with federal requirements effective September 26, 2019.

The Noise Compatibility Program for 2018 and 2023 NEMs was submitted to the Federal Aviation Administration. The FAA issued their Record of Approval on August 27, 2020. A copy of the Record of Approval can be found HERE.

In an effort to continue to foster a sense of community, the Patrick Leahy Burlington International Airport is proposing a new recreation path which will incorporate various landscape elements in the Chamberlin neighborhood. The path will be a “green belt” filled with native plant species and features that mimic Vermont’s iconic landscape. One of the goals of this conceptual path is to help create further connectivity, health, and wellness within the neighborhood.
