Noise Complaints

FAA certification regulations for aircraft noise affect the design of an aircraft, but not its operation. Airports in our district establish operating procedures to reduce noise. Each airport handles its own enforcement procedures.

You must determine whether noise abatement operating procedures are safe. You should also know that varying weather may affect which noise abatement procedures are in use at any particular time.
