The Jackson Hole Airport submitted to the FAA on March 21, 2018 the noise exposure maps, descriptions, and other documentation produced during the noise compatibility planning study for the Jackson Hole Airport conducted in 2013–2018.

No comments were received during the 60-day public comment period for the Jackson Hole Airport Noise Compatibility Program that ended May 22, 2018. The Jackson Hole Airport study contains a proposed noise compatibility program comprised of actions designed for phased implementation by airport management and adjacent jurisdictions. It was requested that the FAA evaluate VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:54 Aug 06, 2018 Jkt 244001 and approve this material as a noise compatibility program as described in section 47504 of the Act. The FAA began its review of the program on March 23, 2018, and was required by a provision of the Act to approve or disapprove the program within 180 days (other than the use of new or modified flight procedures for noise control).

with FAA's decision and the status of each.

DATES: Effective Date: The effective date of the FAA's approval of the 
Jackson Hole Airport Noise Compatibility Program is August 1, 2018.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kandice Krull, Federal Aviation 
Administration, Denver Airports District Office, 26805 E 68th Ave., 
Suite 224, Denver, CO 80249, telephone 303-342-1261. Documents

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:  This notice announces that the FAA has 
given its overall approval to the noise compatibility program for the 
Jackson Hole Airport, effective August 1, 2018.
    Under section 47504 of the Act, an airport operator who has 
previously submitted a noise exposure map may submit to the FAA a noise 
compatibility program which sets forth the measures taken or proposed 
by the airport operator for the reduction of existing non-compatible 
land uses and prevention of additional non-compatible land uses within 
the area covered by the noise exposure maps. The Act requires such 
programs to be developed in consultation with interested and affected 
parties including local communities, government agencies, airport 
users, and FAA personnel.
    Each airport noise compatibility program developed in accordance 
with the Part 150 regulations is a local program, not a Federal 
program. The FAA does not substitute its judgment for that of the 
airport proprietor with respect to which measures should be recommended 
for action. The FAA's approval or disapproval of Part 150 program 
recommendations is measured according to the standards expressed in 
Part 150 and the Act and is limited to the following determinations:
    a. The noise compatibility program was developed in accordance with 
the provisions and procedures of Part 150;
    b. Program measures are reasonably consistent with achieving the 
goals of reducing existing non-compatible land uses around the airport 
and preventing the introduction of additional non-compatible land uses;
    c. Program measures would not create an undue burden on interstate 
or foreign

commerce, unjustly discriminate against types or classes of 
aeronautical uses, violate the terms of airport grant agreements, or 
intrude into areas preempted by the Federal Government; and
    d. Program measures relating to the use of flight procedures can be 
implemented within the period covered by the program without derogating 
safety, adversely affecting the efficient use and management of the 
navigable airspace and air traffic control systems, or adversely 
affecting other powers and responsibilities of the Administrator 
prescribed by law.
    Specific limitations with respect to FAA's approval of an airport 
noise compatibility program are delineated in Part 150, section 150.5. 
Approval is not a determination concerning the acceptability of land 
uses under Federal, state, or local law. Approval does not by itself 
constitute an FAA implementing action. A request for Federal action or 
approval to implement specific noise compatibility measures may be 
required, and an FAA decision on the request may require an 
environmental review of the proposed action. Approval does not 
constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the 
implementation of the program nor a determination that all measures 
covered by the program are eligible for grant-in-aid funding from the 
FAA. Where federal funding is sought, requests for project grants must 
be submitted to the FAA Denver Airports District Office in Denver, CO. 
The Jackson Hole Airport submitted to the FAA on March 21, 2018 the 
noise exposure maps, descriptions, and other documentation produced 
during the noise compatibility planning study for the Jackson Hole 
Airport conducted in 2013-2018. The Jackson Hole Airport noise exposure 
maps were determined by FAA to be in compliance with applicable 
requirements on March 23, 2018. Notice of this determination was 
published in the Federal Register on April 5, 2018 (FR Volume 83, No. 
66, pages 14713-14714).
    Comments received during the noise compatibility planning public 
process were addressed in the final noise compatibility program 
submitted to FAA. No comments were received during the 60-day public 
comment period for the Jackson Hole Airport Noise Compatibility Program 
that ended May 22, 2018.
    The Jackson Hole Airport study contains a proposed noise 
compatibility program comprised of actions designed for phased 
implementation by airport management and adjacent jurisdictions. It was 
requested that the FAA evaluate and approve this material as a noise 
compatibility program as described in section 47504 of the Act. The FAA 
began its review of the program on March 23, 2018, and was required by 
a provision of the Act to approve or disapprove the program within 180 
days (other than the use of new or modified flight procedures for noise 
control). Failure to approve or disapprove such program within the 180-
day period shall be deemed to be an approval of such program.
    The submitted program contained six (6) noise abatement 
recommendations, two (2) land use management recommendations and seven 
(7) program management recommendations for FAA action. The FAA 
completed its review and determined that the procedural and substantive 
requirements of the Act and Part 150 have been satisfied. The overall 
program therefore, was approved by the FAA on August 1, 2018.
    Approval was granted for five of the 15 measures and ten measures 
were disapproved for the purposes of Part 150. Three of the approved 
recommendations were approved as a continuation of a measure approved 
in a prior ROA, one was approved as voluntary, and one was approved for 
the purposes of Part 150. The attachment to this ROA provides a summary 
of all of the recommendations in the three NCPs for JAC along with 
FAA's decision and the status of each.
    These determinations are set forth in detail in a Record of 
Approval signed by the Airports Division Manager, Northwest Mountain 
Region on August 1, 2018. The Record of Approval, as well as other 
evaluation materials and the documents comprising the submittal are 
available for review at the FAA office listed above and at the Jackson 
Hole Airport, 1250 E Airport Road, Jackson, WY 83001. The Record of 
Approval also will be available on-line at http://www.faa.gov/airports/environmental/airport_noise/part_150/states/.
