MKE Community Noise Program
Noise Compatibility Programs at GMIA
General Mitchell International Airport (GMIA) is committed to reducing the effects and exposure of aircraft noise whenever possible.
GMIA has a long-standing history of working with surrounding communities and the airlines to address aircraft noise concerns and remains dedicated to keeping aircraft noise reduction a priority. GMIA continually strives to strike the right balance between the needs of air travelers and the needs of area residents living close to flight paths.

GMIAs Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) Part 150 Noise Study
In 2009, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved many of the proposed recommendations of General Mitchell International Airport's Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) Part 150 Noise Study, which seeks to modulate the level of aircraft noise in airport-area homes.
Links to the Noise Compatibility Study:
As of July 31, 2015, the Airport Area Noise Management Program (NMP) completed its work and the program offices are now permanently closed. The program provided services to more than 500 homes located in the City of Milwaukee, City of St. Francis, City of Oak Creek and City of Cudahy.
If the work on your home is outside of the one-year contractor warranty period, please see your warranty binder for information on specific product warranties and related contact information.
