Welcome Home Salute

Members of the 934th United States Air Force Airlift Wing based at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport will be returning from deployment this afternoon, May 18, 2017. To welcome the members back, the unit is planning to fly one pass over the airport with C-130 aircraft in formation before circling back to the airport for landing. This overflight is expected to occur over the north parallel runway (30R-12L).

Please see the 934th website for more information about this unit.

Collaboration at Work Showcased in New Video

Collaboration has been a long-standing aspect of public engagement for the Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC), particularly when it comes to discussions about aircraft noise. The Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) Noise Oversight Committee (NOC) has been an active part of the aircraft noise dialogue and is showcased in the newest addition of the Aircraft Noise Basics video series.

New Video and Fact Sheet Describe Efforts to Reduce Aircraft Noise

A new video and fact sheet are now available to help explain efforts to reduce aircraft noise associated with airports owned by the Metropolitan Airports Commission, most notably Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP). Aircraft Noise Basics Part 2-Efforts Underway to Reduce Aircraft Noise is the second video produced by the MAC as part of its Aircraft Noise Basics series announced in 2016. 

MSP Aircraft Noise Analysis for 2016 is Now Available

Each year, the MAC reports aircraft noise exposure associated with operations at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) and uses the results to determine homeowner eligibility for the MAC's Noise Mitigation Program. To qualify for mitigation, a home must fall within a higher impact area for three consecutive years.  

The report, called the MSP Annual Noise Contour Report, details the development inputs for aircraft noise exposure contours that represent the geographical areas exposed to aircraft noise levels of 60 dB DNL and greater surrounding MSP.
