Monthly Airport Activity Reports - November 2004. (District 5)

Pursuant to the City Council's request at its meeting of October 12, 2004, attached you
will find the most recent Monthly Airport Activity (Attachment 1) and Monthly Airport
Noise (Attachment 2) Reports.
The Monthly Airport Activity Report provides monthly statistics for airline passengers
(total and enplaned), aircraft operations by user category, and cargo carrier tonnage.
The statistics in general show that year-to-date passenger activity is similar to last year,
given the common 41 daily flight average use factors, with annual passenger totals
expected to be near 3 million. Traditionally, the month of November is one of the
busiest travel months due to the Thanksgiving holiday. General aviation operations are
fairly static.
The Monthly Airport Noise Statistics Report details noise complaints based on type of
complaint (e.g., related to airline, private jet operations, helicopter). It also identifies
specific aircraft noise events that generated five or more complaints and includes a plot
map showing complainant location and the number of repeat violations, along with a
listing of aircraft operators receiving their fourth or greater violation.
The Airport's Noise Office receives and investigates noise calls and complaints from
local citizens and all other sources. In November, the Noise Office received only 106
complaints from citizens. This is an 84.2 percent decrease from the 669 complaints
received in the previous month. Only 1 of the 106 complaints related to operations that
were in violation of the City's noise compatibility ordinance. It should be noted that there
was only one late night commercial flight, after 11:OO. p.m., during the month of
In addition, other than the ongoing runway rehabilitation work, the Airport has no
significant building projects to report at this time.
