NEW AIRCRAFT TECHNOLOGY AND ITS IMPACT ON THE AIRPORT -- AN AIRLINE VIEWPOINT
On January 1, 1977, FAA Amendment 91-136: Part 91 -- General Operating and Flight Rules, Subpart E -- Operating Noise LImits (NEW) became effective. This amendment, more commonly known as the Retrofit/Replacement Rule, is the first time in history that a fleet of aircraft has been federally legislated into forced retirement for environmental reasons. Amendment 91-136 will require all commercial transports that have not been certified to FAR Part 36 noise limits, and having maximum takeoff weights greater than 75,000 pounds, to meet the FAR part 36 noise limits according to a phased compliance schedule resulting in 100% compliance by January 1, 1985. The author's goal will be to describe the impact this rule will have on American Airlines' future fleet requirements and what effects these requirements will have on the airport system.
