[ARCHIVED] 2nd Fly Quiet Runway Rotation Test may impact Elmhurst Residents


The Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) has submitted a second Fly Quiet Runway Rotation Test (Test 2) to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for approval of a twelve-week test period. The purpose of the test is to:

  1. Test the capabilities of the different configurations after responding to FAA concerns
  2. Test new configurations that were not included in Test 1

Test 2 is intended to occur during the overnight hours when demand requires one arrival and one departure runway. Test 2 includes a 12-week schedule that consists of 12 weekly periods intended to balance the overnight noise. Each new week would begin on Sunday evening at 10 p.m. or after when demand allows for one arrival and one departure runway. Runway use configurations may impact Elmhurst Residents. The City of Elmhurst recommends that submit a survey to the CDA with any comments or concerns.
