Runway use refers to the frequency with which aircraft used each of these runways during the course of the year, as dictated or permitted by wind, weather, aircraft performance, demand, air traffic control conditions, and Preferential Runway Advisory System (PRAS) considerations. The more often a runway is used the greater the noise exposure is in the communities adjacent to the end of the runway.
