PortsToronto 2016 Noise Management Report for Billy Bishop Airport Available Online

On February 2, PortsToronto, owner and operator of Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, released the airport's 2016 annual Noise Management Report, a compilation of all noise data submitted to the airport’s Noise Management Office over the course of the year.
In 2016, overall complaints decreased by 38 per cent while complaints related to the ferry and mainland operations declined by a significant 89 per cent. Further, 99 per cent of the complaints received by the airport’s Noise Management Office were handled within the five-day window that Billy Bishop Airport adheres to as part of PortsToronto’s commitment to being a responsive member of the waterfront community.
From successfully implementing new noise mitigation infrastructure at the airport, such as upgrading the airport’s Noise Monitoring Terminals (NMTs) to beginning construction on a Ground Run-up Enclosure (GRE) to dampen the acoustic impact from engine run-ups, to continuing to offer free access to Webtrak, an Internet-based software service that enables individuals to locate and track an aircraft they hear flying overhead from any device, to working together with the community to identify solutions that assist with our noise reduction efforts, the positive results highlighted in the 2016 Noise Report demonstrate our commitment to ensuring that operations keep pace with the surrounding community and that measures are in place to mitigate noise impacts associated with running a successful airport.
