The fact that this website is sponsored by the FAA leaves a foul stench along with zero creditability as to the information contained here.
The FAA has and continues to be a purveyor of concealment, half truths and outright lies when it comes to aircraft noise and the effects on communities near airports.
This article needs a BIG disclaimer as to the duplicity of the FAA with regard to Aircraft noise.
This is such a god awful idea that only the FAA could actually think it up. Do I really need a report to tell me a plane is flying too low when it wakes me up at 1:30 am? Do I need a report to tell me what the "average" decibel level is when I can't even enjoy a walk around my neighborhood without hearing the booming engines of a plane? The problem: low flying planes make noise and represent a safety concern. Solution: unless Meineke starts making industrial strength mufflers for aircraft, the only way to abate this problem is less flights.
