Plane Facts about Aircraft Noise Factsheet (60) 4-69 The factsheet provides an overview summary of the community outreach program, noise con- trol, noise abatement and procedures, and flight tracking program. Van Nuys Airport Part 161 Noise Study Fact Sheets (61-62) 4-70 - 4-71 Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) has embarked on simultaneous studies of potential noise-based operating restrictions at both Van Nuys Airport (VNY) and Los Angeles Interna- tional Airport (LAX).

Aeronautical Noise Management (63-64) 4-72 - 4-73 The Airport Authority has a comprehensive Aeronautical Noise Management Program that includes: consultations with the Vancouver International Airport (YVR) Aeronautical Noise Management Committee; a five-year noise management plan; published noise abatement pro- cedures; an airport noise monitoring and flight tracking system; and a complaint management and response system. The airport's fact sheets include information on: Airport Noise and the Community; What causes airport noise?; What does YVR do to manage noise?; Float Plane Operations at YVR; Why do I notice more noise in the summer?; Who regulates float planes?; What does YVR do to manage noise?; and How can I get more information? PARTNER- Quantifying and Mitigating the Impact of Noise on People Factsheet (65) 4-74 The PARTNER (Partnership for AiR Transportation Noise and Emissions Reduction Evalua- tion) Program factsheet provides a project overview of its programs to evaluate and develop met- rics that can be used to evaluate the impact of airport and other noise sources on a community and to understand the relationship between noise annoyance, physiological responses, cognitive performance, and sleep quality. Flyers or Posters Description. Creative and eye-catching flyers and posters are an excellent way to inform a community about upcoming events or public involvement opportunities. Typically, flyers are a standard, letter-sized page. Posters, on the other hand, are usually larger in size and should be eas- ily readable to attract public attention. Flyers and posters should be distributed throughout the study area in public places and businesses or shops frequented by a large number of citizens to reach the most people. Contact information should be included on the flyer or poster to encourage writ- ten responses. Lessons for Airport Managers. Many public places have "Community Bulletin Boards" specifically designated for announce- ments. Ask permission before hanging posters. Also, if possible, leave stacks of flyers near entrances and on countertops. Don't rely solely on flyers; they are disposable. Posters are visible to large numbers of people for long periods of time and can be used in tan- dem with flyers to increase awareness.
