USER MANUAL: INTERIM PROCEDURE FOR PLANNING ROTARY-WING AIRCRAFT TRAFFIC PATTERNS AND SITING NOISE-SENSITIVE LAND USES

This report presents (1) interim procedures for determining the location of rotary-wing aircraft traffic patterns and ingress and egress corridors into an airfield/heliport area to avoid conflict with noise-sensitive land uses, and (2) criteria for siting noise-sensitive land uses with respect to establish airfield or heliport palns. The procedures are based on interim criteria established in a companion report. Technical Background: Interim Criteria for Planning Rotary-Wing Aircraft Traffic Patterns and Siting Noise-Sensitive Land Uses (Construction Engineering Research Laboratory Interim Report N-9, 1976). The presentation of the procedures includes a history of noise impact measures, a background of the development of noise contours, and tables for finding the noise impact. A complete descriptive example of the use of the procedures is presented as an aid to the reader. /Author/
