The statement is a voluntary commitment made by each of the users to make an effort to follow the adopted procedures.  These procedures include discouraging the use of the airport during the hours of 11pm to 7am except in emergencies or special circumstances; encourage discontinuing maintenance run-ups during the hours of 9pm - 9am, as well as implementing procedures to better respond to the residents in the surrounding communities.  The statement outlines thirteen bullet points as part of the conditions, procedures and policies approved by the Noise Abatement Council.  It also includes detailed departure, approach and landing procedures, as well as noise abatement procedures of the NBAA Noise Abatement program for jet aircraft.

Not since 1955, has a noise abatement policy been issued and approved by all parties.
