Air Installations Compatibility Use Zones (AICUZ) Program
The purpose of the AICUZ program is to achieve compatibility between air installations and neighboring communities by:
· Protecting the health, safety, and welfare of civilians and military personnel by encouraging land use which is compatible with aircraft operations;
· Protecting Navy and Marine Corps installation investment by safeguarding the installation's operational capabilities;
· Reducing noise impacts caused by aircraft operations while meeting operational, training, and flight safetyrequirements, both on and in the vicinity of air installations; and
· Informing the public about the AICUZ program and seeking cooperative efforts to minimize noise and aircraft accident potential impact by promoting compatible development in the vicinity of military air installations.
