NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES:

Pilots know best how to operate their aircraft so that they create the least amount of noise.

These recommended procedures are not meant to interfere with safety, good judgment, FAA rules, or with techniques that good pilots know will help reduce ground noise from their aircraft.

Jefferson County International Airport is adjacent to residential areas. Because of this, some residents are very sensitive to noise from aircraft. These recommended procedures are designed to reduce aircraft noise for the community while keeping visiting aircraft and their operators welcome. Pilots are requested to follow these procedures with respect for the local residents and for other pilots.

SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT  It is understood that FAA rules, weather and safety considerations may at times require deviation from these procedures.

THERE IS NO SUBSTIUTE FOR ALERTNESS IN THE

VICINITY OF AN UNCONTROLLED AIRPORT.

A brief look at the future of Jefferson County International Airport

Jefferson County International Airport future concept
Planned development at Jefferson County International Airport — Pending FAA approval

The Jefferson County International Airport is owned and operated by the Port of Port Townsend and has been designated by Jefferson County as an Essential Public Facility in accordance with the provisions of the Washington State Growth Management Act (Chapter 36.70A RCW).  In 2001, the Port initiated a planning process, as specified in the Jefferson County Comprehensive Plan, to update the Master Plan for the airport.  This updated Master Plan, prepared in accordance with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requirements, the provisions of the Jefferson County Comprehensive Plan, and the Washington State Growth Management Act (GMA) provides direction and guidance regarding future airport development priorities. In the future, it will provide a foundation for a sub-area plan to be incorporated into the County Comprehensive Plan.

For more information, please visit our Airport Master Plan Update page.
