The noise environment around an airport is described by contours of equal noise exposure, representing the noise that occurs during an average 24-hour day, in terms of the Day-Night Average Sound Level (DNL, Ldn).
The MAA routinely conducts airport-related noise sampling at selected locations around MTN, advising the surrounding communities of any significant changes through Neighbors' Committee Meetings and public meetings when the Airport Noise Zone is being updated.
Prior permission required for aircraft exceeding 12,500 pounds requesting practice takeoffs and landings. No practice approaches or practice takeoffs and landings permitted between the hours of 10:00 p.m. & 6:00 a.m. Military aircraft limited to (2) practice approaches and/or practice takeoffs and landings without prior airport management approval. Engine runs for maintenance shall be accomplished only in designated run up areas. Routine engine run-ups prior to departure shall be accomplished at the runway hold lines. C-130's departing Runway 33 shall perform engine run-up on Tango taxiway prior to Delta taxiway.
