The Department of Defense AICUZ Program was initiated to protect the public’s health, safety and welfare and to prevent encroachment from degrading
the operational capability of military air installations in meeting national security objectives. The AICUZ program was devised to promote sustainability
strategies in working with local, regional, state and federal government organizations for land use planning purposes, particularly in proximity to air
installations, flight corridors and military operating areas. The MCAS Miramar AICUZ study provides the requisite analysis of noise levels, accident potential
and obstruction clearance criteria associated with military airfield operations according to Department of the Navy policy and directives (OPNAVINST
11010.36B, 19 Dec 2002).
