    6 Month Test: Fly Quiet Runway Rotation

    The Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) has submitted a Fly Quiet Runway Rotation Test (Test) to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for approval of a six-month test period. The purpose of the test is to evaluate a condition that could be in place until Runway 14R/32L is permanently closed. The Test is intended to occur during the overnight hours when demand requires one arrival and one departure runway. The Test includes a 25-week schedule that consists of 12 weekly periods intended to balance the overnight noise. Each new week will begin on Sunday evening at 10 p.m. or after when demand allows for one arrival and one departure runway.
