SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA finds that the Noise Exposure Maps submitted for Louisville International Airport are in compliance with applicable requirements of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) part 150, effective April 7, 2011. Under 49 U.S.C. section 47503 of the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act (the Act), an airport operator may submit to the FAA Noise Exposure Maps which meet applicable PO 00000 Frm 00102 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 21419 regulations and which depict noncompatible land uses as of the date of submission of such maps, a description of projected aircraft operations, and the ways in which such operations will affect such maps. The Act requires such maps to be developed in consultation with interested and affected parties in the local community, government agencies, and persons using the airport. An airport operator who has submitted Noise Exposure Maps that are found by FAA to be in compliance with the requirements of 14 CFR part 150, promulgated pursuant to the Act, may submit a Noise Compatibility Program for FAA approval which sets forth the measures the airport operator has taken or proposes to take to reduce existing noncompatible uses and prevent the introduction of additional noncompatible uses. The FAA has completed its review of the Noise Exposure Maps and accompanying documentation submitted by Louisville Regional Airport Authority. The documentation that constitutes the ‘‘Noise Exposure Maps’’ as defined in Section 150.7 of 14 CFR part 150 includes: Figure 11, ‘‘Existing Condition 2011 Noise Exposure Map’’; Figure 12, ‘‘Forecast Condition 2012 Noise Exposure Map’’; Figure 4, ‘‘Existing 2011 North Flow Arrival and Departure Tracks’’; Figure 5, ‘‘Existing 2011 South Flow Arrival and Departure Tracks’’; Figure 6, ‘‘Forecast 2016 North Flow Arrival and Departure RNAV Tracks’’; Figure 7, ‘‘Forecast 2016 South Flow Arrival and Departure RNAV Tracks’’; Figure 8, ‘‘Military Arrival and Departure Tracks’’; Figure 13, ‘‘Comparison of Existing 2011 and Forecast 2016 Noise Exposure Maps’’; Table 4, ‘‘2011 Operations Summary’’; Table 5, ‘‘Modeled Average Daily Aircraft Operations for 2011’’; Table 6, ‘‘2016 Operations Summary’’; Table 7, ‘‘Modeled Average Daily Aircraft Operations for 2016’’; Table 9, ‘‘Overall Runway Use Percentages for 2011’’; Table 10, ‘‘Modeled Average Daily Runway Use for 2011’’; Table 14, ‘‘Overall Runway Use Percentages for 2016’’; Table 15, ‘‘Modeled Average Daily Runway Use for 2016’’; Table 21, ‘‘Military Helicopter Flight Tracks and Use’’; Table 25, ‘‘Estimated Residential Population within 2011 and 2016 DNL Contours’’. The FAA has determined that these Noise Exposure Maps and accompanying documentation are in compliance with applicable requirements. This determination is effective on April 7, 2011. FAA’s determination on the airport operator’s Noise Exposure Maps is limited to a finding that the maps were developed in accordance with the E:\FR\FM\15APN1.SGM 15APN1 21420 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 73 / Friday, April 15, 2011 / Notices procedures contained in Appendix A of 14 CFR part 150. Such determination does not constitute approval of the airport operator’s data, information or plans, or a commitment to approve a Noise Compatibility Program or to fund the implementation of that Program. If questions arise concerning the precise relationship of specific properties to noise exposure contours depicted on a Noise Exposure Map submitted under Section 47503 of the Act, it should be noted that the FAA is not involved in any way in determining the relative locations of specific properties with regard to the depicted noise exposure contours, or in interpreting the Noise Exposure Maps to resolve questions concerning, for example, which properties should be covered by the provisions of Section 47506 of the Act. These functions are inseparable from the ultimate land use control and planning responsibilities of local government. These local responsibilities are not changed in any way under 14 CFR part 150 or through FAA’s review of Noise Exposure Maps. Therefore, the responsibility for the detailed overlaying of noise exposure contours onto the map depicting properties on the surface rests exclusively with the airport operator that submitted those maps, or with those public agencies and planning agencies with which consultation is required under Section 47503 of the Act. The FAA has relied on the certification by the airport operator, under Section 150.21 of 14 CFR part 150, that the statutorily required consultation has been accomplished.

ACTION: Notice of petition; request for comments. AGENCY: This notice requests comments on a petition to accept an air service incentive program at McCarran International Airport (Airport) as consistent with Federal law and policies on the use of airport revenue and on airport rates and charges. The petitioner Clark County Department of Aviation is the owner and operator of the Airport. The petitioner is the recipient of Federal grants under the Airport Improvement Program (AIP), and is subject to obligations under AIP grant agreements, including Federal law and policy on the use of airport revenue and on airport rates and charges. The FAA has interpreted these policies, and the underlying Federal statutes, to permit a temporary waiver of standard airport fees for carriers that provide new air service at an airport, as an incentive to begin or expand air service. The agency recently issued the Air Carrier Incentive Program Guidebook to provide specific guidance to airport operators on the use of air service incentive programs. That guidance restates FAA’s previously issued opinions regarding what constitutes new service as characterized in the FAA’s Policy and Procedures Concerning the Use of Airport Revenue (Revenue Use Policy) (64 FR 7696). Since the inception of the Revenue Use Policy in 1999, the FAA has defined new air service as: (a) Service to an airport destination not currently served, (b) nonstop service where no nonstop service is currently offered, (c) new entrant carrier, and/or (d) increased frequency of flights to a specific destination. The FAA’s interpretation has not permitted an airport operator to offer an incentive program that provides discounts based on increased aircraft weight or an increased number of seats on existing flights. The petitioner proposes an incentive program that would reward air carriers for an increase in landed weight. An increase in landed weight could result from an increase in SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00103 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the size of aircraft used, or ‘‘upgauging,’’ on existing flights as well as from added flights. The petitioner requests that the FAA amend existing guidance to make clear that its proposed incentive plan is consistent with Federal law and general agency policies on the use of airport revenue and on airport rates and charges. The FAA is publishing this notice of the petition for public comment on whether agency guidance should be interpreted or amended as requested. Send your comments on or before May 31, 2011.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its 
determination that the Noise Exposure Maps submitted by Louisville 
Regional Airport Authority for Louisville International Airport under 
the provisions of 49 U.S.C. 47501 et. seq (Aviation Safety and Noise 
Abatement Act) and 14 CFR part 150 are in compliance with applicable 
requirements.

DATES: Effective Date: The effective date of the FAA's determination on 
the noise exposure maps is April 7, 2011.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Phillip J. Braden, Federal Aviation 
Administration, Memphis Airports District Office, 2862 Business Park 
Drive, Building G, Memphis, Tennessee 38118, 901-322-8181.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA finds 
that the Noise Exposure Maps submitted for Louisville International 
Airport are in compliance with applicable requirements of Title 14 Code 
of Federal Regulations (CFR) part 150, effective April 7, 2011. Under 
49 U.S.C. section 47503 of the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act 
(the Act), an airport operator may submit to the FAA Noise Exposure 
Maps which meet applicable regulations and which depict noncompatible 
land uses as of the date of submission of such maps, a description of 
projected aircraft operations, and the ways in which such operations 
will affect such maps. The Act requires such maps to be developed in 
consultation with interested and affected parties in the local 
community, government agencies, and persons using the airport. An 
airport operator who has submitted Noise Exposure Maps that are found 
by FAA to be in compliance with the requirements of 14 CFR part 150, 
promulgated pursuant to the Act, may submit a Noise Compatibility 
Program for FAA approval which sets forth the measures the airport 
operator has taken or proposes to take to reduce existing noncompatible 
uses and prevent the introduction of additional noncompatible uses.
    The FAA has completed its review of the Noise Exposure Maps and 
accompanying documentation submitted by Louisville Regional Airport 
Authority. The documentation that constitutes the ``Noise Exposure 
Maps'' as defined in Section 150.7 of 14 CFR part 150 includes: Figure 
11, ``Existing Condition 2011 Noise Exposure Map''; Figure 12, 
``Forecast Condition 2012 Noise Exposure Map''; Figure 4, ``Existing 
2011 North Flow Arrival and Departure Tracks''; Figure 5, ``Existing 
2011 South Flow Arrival and Departure Tracks''; Figure 6, ``Forecast 
2016 North Flow Arrival and Departure RNAV Tracks''; Figure 7, 
``Forecast 2016 South Flow Arrival and Departure RNAV Tracks''; Figure 
8, ``Military Arrival and Departure Tracks''; Figure 13, ``Comparison 
of Existing 2011 and Forecast 2016 Noise Exposure Maps''; Table 4, 
``2011 Operations Summary''; Table 5, ``Modeled Average Daily Aircraft 
Operations for 2011''; Table 6, ``2016 Operations Summary''; Table 7, 
``Modeled Average Daily Aircraft Operations for 2016''; Table 9, 
``Overall Runway Use Percentages for 2011''; Table 10, ``Modeled 
Average Daily Runway Use for 2011''; Table 14, ``Overall Runway Use 
Percentages for 2016''; Table 15, ``Modeled Average Daily Runway Use 
for 2016''; Table 21, ``Military Helicopter Flight Tracks and Use''; 
Table 25, ``Estimated Residential Population within 2011 and 2016 DNL 
Contours''. The FAA has determined that these Noise Exposure Maps and 
accompanying documentation are in compliance with applicable 
requirements. This determination is effective on April 7, 2011.
    FAA's determination on the airport operator's Noise Exposure Maps 
is limited to a finding that the maps were developed in accordance with 
the

[[Page 21420]]

procedures contained in Appendix A of 14 CFR part 150. Such 
determination does not constitute approval of the airport operator's 
data, information or plans, or a commitment to approve a Noise 
Compatibility Program or to fund the implementation of that Program. If 
questions arise concerning the precise relationship of specific 
properties to noise exposure contours depicted on a Noise Exposure Map 
submitted under Section 47503 of the Act, it should be noted that the 
FAA is not involved in any way in determining the relative locations of 
specific properties with regard to the depicted noise exposure 
contours, or in interpreting the Noise Exposure Maps to resolve 
questions concerning, for example, which properties should be covered 
by the provisions of Section 47506 of the Act. These functions are 
inseparable from the ultimate land use control and planning 
responsibilities of local government. These local responsibilities are 
not changed in any way under 14 CFR part 150 or through FAA's review of 
Noise Exposure Maps.
    Therefore, the responsibility for the detailed overlaying of noise 
exposure contours onto the map depicting properties on the surface 
rests exclusively with the airport operator that submitted those maps, 
or with those public agencies and planning agencies with which 
consultation is required under Section 47503 of the Act. The FAA has 
relied on the certification by the airport operator, under Section 
150.21 of 14 CFR part 150, that the statutorily required consultation 
has been accomplished.
