Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) Airport Community Roundtable (ACR)

Article Summary:

At the request of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) convened the Airport Community Roundtable (ACR) in 2017. This broad-based community initiative provides input into airport-related noise impacts and finds, where possible, practical solutions and recommendations for the FAA to consider when determining aircraft operating procedures at CLT.Meetings provide an opportunity to develop technical operating recommendations rather than provide a general public discussion forum. Revisions to existing operating procedures are expected to be considered by the ACR, yet there is no guarantee of operational changes.

The FAA has worked with other airports on similar initiatives producing a variety of outcomes including flight routing modifications and alternative runway utilization schedules.

Membership is comprised of 23 representatives from across Charlotte, Mecklenburg County cities and towns, and Mecklenburg, Gaston and York counties. The ACR Mission Statement and Guidelines and FAQs are available for review. On July 8, 2020, the ACR voted to submit a list of recommendations to the FAA for review and possible implementation. The FAA will now review these recommendations independently and report back to the group prior to any changes taking place. A link to the recommendations can be found below.

Currently, there are several vacancies on the Airport Community Roundtable. Vacancies are indicated below. If you are resident of these regions and would like to be considered for participation in the ACR, please email Stuart Hair at for an application.
