This study is an update of the 1998 Tinker Air Force Base (AFB), Oklahoma Air
Installation Compatible Use Zone (AICUZ) Study. 

The update presents and documents changes to the AICUZ amendment for the period 1998-2006 and is based on the January 2006 aircraft operations condition.

compatible development within the AICUZ area of influence; and protecting Air Force operational capability from the effects of land use that are incompatible with aircraft operations. Specifically, the report documents changes in aircraft operations since the last study and provides noise contours and compatible use guidelines for land areas surrounding the installation based on the January 2006 operations.
