Fly Quiet Rotation

On March 10, 2017,  members of the O’Hare Noise Compatibility Commission (ONCC) voted 36 to 10 to approve a second, three-month Fly Quiet Rotation test which is expected to be implemented in late April - early May .  Fly Quiet Runway Rotation Test 2 features five configuration modifications from the original test, which took place from July to December 2016.  These changes will have a negative noise and pollution impact on Park Ridge.  Park Ridge was among the 10 representatives to vote against the plan.  The exclusion of Runway 15 / 33 and eventual commissioning of Runway 9C / 27C will impact the present configurations for the Fly Quiet Rotation Test.   CDA is now expediting the decommissioning of runway 15/ 33 to spring of 2018. This will leave the airport under duress with only seven operational runways for at least two years until 9C / 27C is commissioned in 2020 / 2021.
