Interim Fly Quiet Update
The Interim Fly Quiet plan is expected to be in place from November 3, 2019 to May 17, 2020 and from September 13, 2020 through January 31, 2021. The plan will be impacted by airfield construction projects, which will result in reverting to the original Fly Quiet program during those periods.

The Interim Fly Quiet Runway Rotation Plan was proposed by the O’Hare Noise Compatibility Commission (ONCC), in collaboration with the Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA), in 2017 to provide relief from nighttime noise for the communities around O’Hare International Airport.For each week, a primary and secondary runway use configuration is provided to accommodate potential changes in wind direction.

Check the web site for the weekly summary reports, which provide information on runway usage, as well as weather conditions and safety inspections that may impact operations.

Fly Quiet 21 Progress
The Fly Quiet Committee has been working diligently to examine possible departure concepts to implement for Fly Quiet 21, the Fly Quiet program that will be in place following full buildout of the O'Hare Modernization Program (OMP).

The Committee has been reviewing potential departure concepts and meeting with CDA staff and consultants to provide feedback in order to further refine the concepts. Possible elements of the plan could include the type of departure, departure path and aircraft altitude.
Technical Committee Meeting Update
At their November meeting, the Technical Committee received reports from CDA staff on noise monitors and airfield updates, reviewed the 3rd Quarter Fly Quiet Report, and heard from CDA consultants about the AAAE Airport Noise Conference.

Governance Committee Update
The ONCC Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) between the City of Chicago and ONCC members is up for renewal in 2020. The Governance Committee has been meeting in earnest to review and revise both the IGA as well as the ONCC bylaws. Stay tuned in 2020 for more information about these important efforts.
