... 18 4.1 Reasons for and Benefits of Acquiring a NOMS In the course of the literature review for this research, the research team discovered that reasons for an airport to install a noise monitoring system include the following: • Assess noise control for alternative flight procedures; • Assist in the investigation of public inquiries and complaints; • Validate noise modeling efforts; • Educate pilots, airlines, and the public about airport noise; and • Manage public expectations and replace perceptions with facts. Additionally, FAA guidelines indicate that continuous airport noise monitoring systems can enhance the effectiveness of airport NCPs by providing single event and cumulative noise levels at monitoring sites, differentiating between ambient and aircraft contributions to noise exposure levels, and providing the ability to develop a statistical database of noise levels for each aircraft type category.

... Benefits and Disbenefits of Operating a NOMS 19   The airport may acquire a flight tracking system or a full NOMS depending on the potential for noise issues in the foreseeable future (e.g., prior to a runway opening or residential developments encroaching on airport property or flight paths)
From page 20...
... 20 Primer and Framework for Considering an Airport Noise and Operations Monitoring System Once the flight tracking system or NOMS becomes operational, detailed information becomes available to airport staff to address noise issues. Airport staff can use the information provided by these systems to more effectively handle complaints and inquiries and improve community engagement.

... Benefits and Disbenefits of Operating a NOMS 21   4.2 Disbenefits of Acquiring a NOMS As described in the previous section, flight tracking systems and NOMSs are investments that require airport resources. The costs associated with the procurement of these systems and the allocation of staff are the most common disbenefits reported by airports.
