Noise Exposure Map (NEM) Update
The Noise Exposure Map documents the airport layout and operation, aircraft related noise exposure and land uses surrounding the airport. The current update will look at aircraft noise exposure for the years 2024 and 2029. The current FAA approved 2018 NEM represents calendar years 2018 and 2023 conditions.
The airport is home to the Vermont Air National Guard (ANG) 158th Fighter Wing, which currently flies F-35As. The ANG began flying the F-35As in fall 2019. To account for this change in the ANG’s operations, the airport is updating the NEM to reflect existing aircraft operations.
