Airport partners honored

The Buffalo Niagara International Airport’s Noise Compatibility Program has been a resounding success. So much so, that two officials from the Federal Aviation Administration instrumental in getting the program off the ground have been recognized with a Best Practices award.

The Airport Consultants Council honored Sukhbir Gill and David Sanchez from FAA New York Airports District Office for streamlining the processes necessary for creating and carrying out the Airport’s noise mitigation initiative. The program was seen as complex, with a large number of stakeholders involved, but thanks to the dedication and commitment of individuals like Gill and Sanchez, homes around the Buffalo Airport have become much, much quieter.
