NEW SMYRNA BEACH MUNICIPAL AIRPORT AIRPORT MASTER PLAN UPDATE
INSTRUMENT OPERATION - An aircraft operation in accordance with an IFR flight plan or an operation where IFR separation between aircraft is provided by a terminal control facility or air route traffic control center. INSTRUMENT RUNWAY - A runway equipped with electronic and visual navigation aids and for which a straight-in (precision or non-precision) approach procedure has been approved or is planned.
INTEGRATED NOISE MODEL (INM) - A computer model developed by the FAA and required by the FAA for use in environmental assessments, environmental impact statements, and FAR Part 150 studies for developing existing and future aircraft noise exposure maps.
LAND USE COMPATIBILITY - The compatibility of land uses surrounding an airport with airport activities and particularly with the noise from aircraft operations.
LAND USE COMPATIBILITY ASSURANCE - Documentation provided by an airport sponsor to the FAA. The documentation is related to an application for an airport development grant. Its purpose is to assure that a reasonably appropriate action, including the adoption of zoning laws, has been taken or will be taken to restrict the use of land adjacent to the airport or in the immediate vicinity of the airport. Such uses are limited to activities and purposes compatible with normal airport operations, including the landing and takeoff of aircraft.
LAND USE CONTROLS - Controls established by local or state governments to carry out land use planning. The controls include zoning, subdivision regulations, land acquisition (in fee simple, leaseback, or easements), building codes, building permits, and capital improvement programs (to provide sewer, water, utilities, or other service facilities).
LAND USE PLANNING - Comprehensive planning carried out by units of local government, for all areas under their jurisdiction, to identify the optimum uses of land and to serve as a basis for the adoption of zoning or other land use controls.
LOUDNESS - The judgment of the intensity of a sound by a person. Loudness depends primarily on the sound pressure of the stimulus. Over much of the loudness range, it takes about a threefold increase in sound pressure (approximately 10 decibels) to produce a doubling of loudness.
MARKING & LIGHTING - Terminology used to indicate methods to increase visibility of an obstruction to air navigation. AC 70/7460-1K describes the standards established for the purpose. Marking refers to paint and colors; flags or other high visibility devices for day time use.
MAXIMUM ELEVATION FIGURE - The height above MSL of the highest known feature, natural or manufactured, on a given quadrangle area of an air navigation chart.
MICROWAVE LANDING SYSTEM - A new technology ground based radio system to provide pilots very precise cockpit instrument readings to land an aircraft in very poor weather conditions. These systems will be replacing older ILS systems over the next several years.
