THE FEASIBILITY OF APPLYING AIRPORT AND AIRWAY TRUST FUND SURPLUS TO NOISE ABATEMENT

The FAA, while presently favoring a Nacelle retrofit program, is seeking the most equitable method of funding. A $577 Million surplus exists in the Airport and Airway Trust Fund in fiscal 1975 which will grow to over $4 billion by fiscal 1980. Although those moneys are sought after by the FAA for operational expenses, a viable alternative is to utilize a small portion of this surplus for Nacelle treatment thereby releasing the majority of the surplus for other purposes appropriated by Congress.
