Southern Departure Task Force

The purpose of the Southern Departure Procedure Study was to further investigate the feasibility of a procedure for southern departures that could reduce noise for the entire community south of the Jackson Hole Airport, while taking into consideration other noise sensitive areas such as the Elk Refuge, U.S. Forest Service and National Park Service lands. The Study sought to determine if one or more such procedures are feasible and if so, to conceptually design them. The intent of the Study was to build upon the well­ developed existing noise abatement program in place at the Airport and look for ways to further refine and reduce noise.

In connection with this work, the Departure Procedure Study Input Taskforce was organized to provide input and consultation on the process. The SIT meetings were used to obtain stakeholder input, address questions, ensure understanding regarding the Airport’s and FAA’s roles, and to identify the challenges of designing such procedures relative to FAA standards, criteria and constraints to flying certain procedures. The duration of the SIT expired at the end of the Study.
