Updated Remarks, by Petition Signers Nationwide

AZ – Bullhead CityI live 2 miles from an airport here and they manage noise by limiting takeoffs and landings over populated areas. I rarely hear a plane. When I lived in Hillsboro 3 miles from the airport, the noise was constant and distracting. That city is nearly unlivable due to the constant noise from takeoff and landing training flights.
AZ – PhoenixI live in Phoenix, AZ and the flight path changes made here in September of 2014 have negatively impacted my family. We are forced to sell our home because the FAA refuses to do anything about the extreme noise impact they created with these flight path changes.
AZ – PhoenixFlights from Sky Harbor airport in Phoenix, AZ were re-routed in 2014 over my historic neighborhood, affecting property values.
AZ – PhoenixThe FAA is just one more example of the countless Federal agencies that are completely failing to serve interests of U.S. taxpayers: FAA, EPA, DOJ, SEC, and on-and-on. I call on Congress to take immediate action.
AZ – PhoenixThere’s a new highway in the sky over my once quiet backyard.
CA – Culver CityCulver City California resident impacted by reckless and unresponsive FAA — they are negatively impacting quality of life of residents all over country, without regard.
CA – Lake ElsinoreConcerned about the excessive noise caused by skydiving airplanes over our once quiet neighborhood. They are negatively impacting homeowners’ rights to peaceful enjoyment of their homes.
CA – Lake ElsinoreWe’re sick of the incessant small airplane noise that now flies over our backyard, especially on the weekends. It was so nice and quiet here in Canyon Hills, CA when we bought this home in 2004. Now it is noisy and annoying with the skydiving plane flight paths and other private planes all flying the same path above our neighborhood.
CA – LakesideGeneral Aviation is noisy, polluting, taxpayer supported industry that should be classified right along with the COAL INDUSTRY! Pilots are selfish, arrogant, cry babies with no consideration for their communities or our children.
CA – LakesidePlease include our web-site for informational reading, Citizens Against Gillespie’s Expansion Low Flying Aircraft.
The increase of aircraft in our communities is not for STUDENTS! (that is a soft sell) These pilots (employees) are training for foreign airlines(Pacific Rim, Middle East Airlines) These foreign airlines ultimately cost us American Jobs. The FAA is doing this with tax payer money. It’s called JOB SECURITY.
CA – Los AngelesWe live very close to Santa Monica Airport (SMO). The noise level from the jets is unbearable as well as the dangerous fumes and fall out from the jets that fly over us and idle waiting for takeoff approval from LAX. The fumes from the idling planes are coming right at us. The airport would not be able to build an airport there today as the runway is too close to many homes. The FAA has turned a deaf ear to our pleas for help. The health of many of our neighbors have been adversely affected by the above mentioned injustices.
CA – Los AngelesThe FAA is deaf to local communities and this needs to change from a congressional standpoint.
CA – Los AngelesUncontrolled air traffic adjacent to my single family home community is causing long term, chronic health problems and sleep disorders.
CA – Los AngelesSanta Monica Airport is too noisy and polluting to be allowed to continue operating in such close proximity to the surrounding neighborhoods.
CA – Los AngelesHelicopters fly by my home 30 times a day, flying low and circling, at all hours.
CA – Los AngelesI’m signing because there has to be a time when the people on the ground are also considered. I know aviation is important and support it, but there needs to be a balance…
CA – Los AngelesThe public needs a voice at the table.
CA – Los AngelesI can’t understand why some thinks it’s ok for the planes to fly right over the highest point in Nassau County.
CA – Los GatosI’m a nextgen flightpath victim 60 mi from airport being tortured by FAA.
CA – Palo AltoEnvironmental responsibility should be co-equal with safety and efficiency in FAA’s mission.
CA – Palo AltoWe in Palo Alto have experienced a severe increase in noise issues over the last several years. The FAA is totally out of control in this area. We need stricter regulation of noise. Noise is the final ‘pollution frontier’.
CA – Palo AltoPalo Alto is 20 miles distant from SFO and San Jose and yet the skies over our families’ heads are now an extension of aircraft runways. Noise measured in my backyard well exceeds FAA noise standards per flight, often 15 flights an hour yet this noise harm does not meet FAA’s antiquated and airline friendly noise harm averages. The airlines own the FAA and the only way to change that is to support elected officials who will change the laws. Check out Sky Posse Palo Alto for more information.
CA – Palo AltoHear hear! Thank you for this excellent national outreach, Citizens for Quiet Skies. Another important spoke in the wheel of aviation impact abatement work!
CA – Palo AltoThe increase in air traffic noise over Palo Alto is disruptive from sunrise to 11 p.m. Constant low flying loud planes headed towards SFO.
CA – Santa CruzExcessive noise is bad for your health. We are suffering too in Santa Cruz County, CA from the implementation of a Nextgen route out of nowhere!
CA – Santa MonicaI’m signing because me and my family suffer from airport noise and pollution near our home.
CA – Santa MonicaI’m signing because of aircraft noise problems that have gone unadressed in my neighborhood/area.
CA – Santa MonicaThe noise of private jets is wrecking our neighborhood.
CA – Santa MonicaAs a member of the Santa Monica Airport Commission, a USAF pilot with more than 7,000 hours of multi-engine jet time, and an aviation safety consultant (to the FAA) – the FAA has run amok, a prime example of regulatory capture by special interests who trash public goods and cause harm and death to innocent residential bystanders.
CA – SoquelThe FAA is unresponsive to all the citizens throughout the country who have experienced a compromise in quality of life due to air traffic noise. In Santa Cruz California incessant noise created by new highways in the sky replaces the sound of owls and crickets. I also invite signers of this petition to sign the NoFlyDay pledge www.noflyday.org. It is time for the FAA to be responsive to the people.
CA – SoquelWe should all have EIR’s done for our communities before the airplane noises move into the neighborhoods.
CA – WestchesterThe FAA is not managing its airports with any consideration for people directly impacted. Enough already.
CA – WoodlandMile High Skydiving in Longmont, CO abuses Longmont citizens by having a constant drone of their twin-otter planes over neighborhoods.
CO – BoulderCitizens should have control over the noise above their homes and have it be limited to a reasonable level. The current levels are not reasonable. One can choose to buy a home away from a highway, a busy street, or an airport for peace and quiet yet they have no control over what flies overhead. The FAA must consider the impact airplanes have on the residential areas. It is unfair that citizens have no control over this.
CO – BoulderWe are personally affected by excessive airplane noise from skydiving planes.
CO – BoulderI am overwhelmed with the amount of air traffic noise I am subjected to each day. Additionally, on behalf of the wildlife that can’t sign, please note this is signed with them in mind as well.
CO – BoulderI support that the noise generated by Mile High Skydiving Operations from the Longmont Airport is intollerable to the homes in their area.
CO – BoulderOperations such as Mile-Hi Skydiving create noise in a repeated pattern, all day long. This noise is not the same as for a plane that just takes off and flies away, or one that flies overhead and is gone quickly.
CO – BoulderWe have lived in a densely populated neighborhood since 1994. The small low flying planes and helicopters started flying over our home In May of 2014 and they disrupt our lives with their noise, pollution and potentially dangerous activity. They fly over at all times of the day and night and while this was for many years a reasonably quiet residential neighborhood it is no longer. A very noisy helicopter flew over our home last night and there are planes flying overhead now at 12:55 in the afternoon. It rarely stops. A small plane grazed the top of the trees in our small backyard. Was it flying too low-yes!
CO – CentennialI live near an airport and know how disruptive the noise is.
CO – EnglewoodWe live less than two miles from the north end of the active runway of Centennial airport. The FAA has continually blocked a proposal in favor of a 10 degree departure heading from this runway, first proposed as part of an initial Part 150 study many, many years ago. They will not allow the automated noise gathering system to identify aircraft that show up on the Flight Trak software available to the general public and expressly refuse to allow any noise gathered identification for any sanctions of any bad actors. That remain the major part of the severe noise problems at Centennial.
I would disagree with banning flights over parks, as the 10 degree departure proposal would route flights out over Cherry Creek Lake State Park. I certainly would rather waken the deer and coyotes than my family at 5:00 am, as we were recently.
CO – EnglewoodI live within 2 miles of the north end of the active runway of Centennial Airport. The FAA prevents relief.
CO – EnglewoodThere are things that can be done to quiet down airplanes, especially light aircraft, that are not moving forward.
CO – EnglewoodI am signing as I live near Centennial Airport which doesn’t actively the noise in my neighborhood.
CO – Fort CollinsMy parents’ house is right under where the planes fly.
CO – LongmontI am greatly affected by the sound of noisy jump planes over our home in Longmont CO. For years I did not know that the sound was from a commercial operation; I believed that ONLY a military operation could impose on our peace in that fashion.
CO – LongmontI and my neighbors are directly affected by the abusive flying behavior of Mile-Hi Skydiving in Longmont, CO. We never get peaceful weekends or holidays in nice weather. The skydive planes start early in the morning and fly until late in the evening…often 12-14 hours per day. This is an unbearable noise nuisance. The noise penetrates the house…there is nowhere to escape it on our property.
CO – LongmontThe drone of the Skydiving Plane aka Twin Otter is ruining the peace and quiet that I had at my rural home for 8 years. It is every weekend and especially on the holiday weekends, and sometimes during the week. I bought this property for the peace and quiet and it is no longer giving me that.
CO – LongmontPlanes fly low above our farm in Colorado and ruin the peace and tranquility we’d hoped to find there.
CO – LongmontI’m signing because the citizens of Longmont Colorado are subjected to excessive noise from a skydiving operation at our local airport, and the airport proprietor, the City of Longmont, feels it is powerless to protect us with reasonable regulations. They feel their hands are tied with FAA Grant Assurances and other FAA regulations. We need relief from this government agency’s authority pre-empting local control over quality of life issues.
CO – LongmontThe non-stop noise pollution of the sky dive jump planes flying over my house and neighborhood needs to be addressed in a way that reduces the amount of time and days that the company can operate so I and others can enjoy a little peace and quiet and actually hear each other speak.
CO – LongmontI support this petition because the intrusiveness of the Mi Hi Skydiving planes is abusive. The city of Longmont has noise ordinances against landscapers making too much noise and confines the hours of operations for those businesses but turns a blind eye to Mile HI and largely encourages them to operate excessively loud planes at all hours of the day and night.
CO – LongmontOur neighborhoods and open space are being bombarded by a sky diving business that runs two -three times an hour..everyday. The company says they want to be good neighbors but they continue to run maximum number of flights with no moderation/consideration, for the areas they fly over .. and making big $$$ doing it.
CO – LongmontThis petition affects me personally, for I live in Longmont, CO and deal with the airplane noise daily.
CO – LongmontWe have lived on our small farm for 30 years and can no longer enjoy our quiet rural setting because of the 12+ constant hours of noise created by Mile He Skydiving . Local residents and authorities MUST have the option to out regulations and limits in place for the peace of the residents.
CO – LongmontI live at a significant distance from the Longmont Airport, yet I’m apparently in the flight box. Though my windows remain shut for health reasons and the air inside is protected with an electronic whole house air cleaner, I can still hear the noise from the Mile-Hi planes . Just after a specific flight ends and nerves begin to settle down, yet another of their planes flies over. Please show us some respect.
CO – LongmontI’m signing because I am directly affected by the skydiving operations out of Longmont, CO. Mile-Hi Skydiving flies 3 concurrent planes and produces continuous noise, which you cannot escape. You hear the droning in the house with windows closed, and even when you are downstairs in the underground basement. You hear it at our parks when we mountain bike and hike. The noise disrupts my quality of life.
CO – Longmontpeople living under the flight box of a jump plane are also entitled to peace and quiet at their homes.
CO – LongmontMy quality of life is severely impacted by nearly continuous noise from skydiving operations at a local airport.
CO – LongmontI’m tired of the incessant noise from Mile-Hi Skydiving’s Twin Otters near Longmont’s small airport. There are many solutions to this particular problem but the operator has chosen to ignore our pleas for relief. I hope this petition will result in a change in the FAA’s willingness and ability to manage aircraft noise, specifically enabling local citizens to deny access to specific aircraft based on noise characteristics.
CO – LongmontI’m tired of not being able to use my own back yard on weekends in peace.
CO – LongmontBeing in my 70’s, I’ve seen plenty of business and government trampling on our rights in search of the mighty dollar. But having a couple of Twin Otters climbing continuously overhead, courtesy of Mile-Hi Skydiving in Longmont, Co., is a public nuisance if there ever was one.
CO – LongmontI am signing because the FAA has designated a one square mile fly box for training and acrobatic planes exclusively over my privately owned ranch property a full six miles north of the Vance Brand Airport in Longmont, Colorado. The constant noise and harassment is inexcusable. These pilots unnecessary recreational endeavors are destroying the peace, privacy and health of our neighborhood, home, family and riparian zone ecosystem.
CO – LongmontI am tired of constantly being bombarded with inconsiderate planes that buzz our farm and continually fly over at all hours without any consideration to those of us living here in Longmont near the airport. If we call to complain, we are met with resistance and “there is nothing we can do” responses. It is time for change and laws that keep them accountable.
CO – LongmontThe sky diving operation is a nuisance at best and LOUD, LOUD, LOUD all weekend long at worst. He’s a LOUSY neighbor and has openly MOCKED anyone daring to complain. How does he get away with this?
CO – LongmontThe airplane drone noise over our neighborhood during sky diving season is relentless. They need to find new patterns or go to a less populated area. We live in the country for peace and quiet and this can be very intrusive.
CO – LongmontNoise pollution has been identified by the American Academy of Sciences (2011) as a source of pollution significantly impacts the quality of life and ability to thrive for millions of people. Mile high Skydiving and their use of twin otter airplanes has been particularly egregious in the way they operate in Boulder County. They have not been open to compromise and work with neighbors to reduce their impact in this area! Please use our tax dollars to quiet the skies and give us some peace in our own back yards!
CO – LongmontThe sky diving planes at the Vance Brand airport in Longmont, CO create excessive noise in the surrounding neighborhoods from dawn till dusk. The news reports say they fly over unincorporated Boulder County when in fact the flight path is over thousands of homes in Longmont proper.
CO – LongmontMy neighborhood is greatly affected by the noise of the airport operations. The aircraft the skydiving company chooses to use are among the noisiest that operate from the airport especially when taking off. These regulations are a critical first step needed to bring relief to all those impacted by airport operations across the country.
CO – LongmontI am directly affected by the Mile-Hi Skydiving airplane noise.
CO – LongmontAirplane noise in my area has increased exponentially in the past year and there is no regulation. It is having a huge negative impact on the quality of life at my home, and in our city.
CO – LongmontI’m signing because I’m fed up with the constant noise from Mile Hi Skydiving’s operations over our house. A noisy airplane that takes off and flies away is one thing, but the noisy planes used by Mile Hi take off, circle around as they gain altitude, drop off their divers, fly back down, and do the whole thing over again, all day long.
CO – LongmontI support the regulation of noisy airplanes.
CO – LongmontReturn regulation of noise pollution from the Longmont, CO airport to the city residents who own the airport. Mile-Hi Skydiving is using FAA protection to operate without regard to the noise impact on the residents in the community. It is time to allow local communities that regulate noise pollution from the municipal airport in the same manner that other noise nuisance is regulated.
CO – LongmontThe constant drone of sky diving planes above my house reduce the joy of being in my beautiful backyard.
CO – LongmontAn expansion of the longmont airport negativelyrics affect all but a very few.
CO – LongmontI live near an airport. While I love watching the planes, their flight patterns vary too much and cause so much noise, unnecessarily.
CO – Longmontwe live near an airport and the twin otter, sky diving, planes are very noisy and fly way to low over the residential neighborhoods.
CO – LongmontI’m signing this because of the constant abuse of noise from sky diving operations over our home.
CO – LongmontMy adult children and I are literally “bombarded” by noise when Mile Hi Skydiving sends up its two otters! It ceases to be a fun activity for us to observe so many flights per day and the noise is beyond acceptable. Our city leaders are not stepping up to the plate, nor is Airport management. The courts turn a blind eye and support the for-profit Mile Hi company at the expense of citizens. How this can continue after so many years is unconscionable! A precedent has been set by allowing homeowners to continue to be assaulted, visually and audibly. This is not right, nor is it conducive to creating an atmosphere of serenity, something homeowners desire to protect and value above a company making a profit from our discomfort. Being subjected to these extremely noisy planes during daylight hours – and often into darkening skies toward evening – exhibits absolute disregard for citizens’ ability to live quiet lives, a ‘quality of life’ issue that Longmont, CO has promoted as being high on its list of assets. We must demand that changes be made in how the FAA, our local governments and our Airports deal with ‘nuisance’ noise, offensive noise that destroys our sense of security and pride in our communities and work to deal with companies that would ignore the most basic of needs of our communities. This is not a ‘one community’ issue, it is happening everywhere. Please work to bring back the ‘quiet skies’ that my family – and other families – have enjoyed for 40 years in Longmont. Bring back the pride we used to feel about how our community supported us and dealt with issues in a common-sense, rational manner, by not allowing this issue to continue to negatively affect citizens all over the country. Thank you for listening. This is important.
CO – LongmontI’m signing because sometimes the planes are so loud I can’t even have a conversation INSIDE my house!
CO – LongmontI live in Longmont Colorado and this issue directly impacts my family. I sincerely appreciate this effort to create a voice for this need.
CO – LongmontThe noise in my neighborhood from recreational and skydiving planes is excessive and constant on the weekends.
CO – LongmontI live near the Longmont, CO General Aviation airport and the noise is deafening.
CO – LongmontIt is impossible to sit outside on my deck and sleep in weekends because the skydive plane noise is so loud and irritating both in and out of my home.
CO – LongmontThe enjoyment of a few (skydivers) should not come at the expense of so many.
CO – LongmontWhy should the enjoyment of a few ski drivers be at the expense of so many people?
CO – LongmontClimbing boxes should be over the municipality that runs the airport.
CO – LongmontI am saddened by the onslaught of noise polution that starts before 8am on Sat and Sundays and ends in the evening in my beloved neighborhood. Please help us! I am a home owner, tax payer and voter.
CO – LongmontI live in Longmont less than 5 miles from Vance Airport (KLMO). The noise from the ever present skydiving plane has become increasingly annoying. On the weekends the plane flies for over 12 hours a day. I don’t want to stop the flights, but I don’t understand why this company has not been willing to work with the community to decrease the flying time on the weekends AND to use less noisy planes. This issue has come before the local judge and the judge has claimed that this is legal under current FAA regulations. These FAA regulations need to be amended so that our communities can be free of the incessant noise from these planes.
CO – Niwotsick and tired of the noise
CO – NiwotI am signing because airplane noise negatively affects my life.
DC – WashingtonRecent Nextgen changes have resulted in intolerable increases in aircraft noise over Georgetown, a protected historical village in Washington, DC. The FAA is operating like a despot that has absolutely no regard for the impacts it’s creating for those of us who live under and near the flight paths of Ronald Reagan National Airport. Corrective action by Congress is now absolutely necessary.
ENG – King’s LynnPlane noise has ruined our sleep–starting before 6 am at weekends low lying planes take off over our homes and continue until late at night. The pollution is harmful for our children and the airlines and FAA are allowed to do as they wish despite the community being up in arms. This has to stop.
FL – Dade CityAirplane noise can become a nuisance. Sky divers seem to think they have a right to make excess noise with their planes. They need to be forced to be more responsible with their use of the air space.
FL – GainesvilleI am signing because I cannot enjoy my back yard due to the Longmont Sky diving plane circling above from 7 am till sunset most weekends and at lunch time during the week. Please help put a stop to this constant noise. Even in my house it is unbearable at times.
FL – ZephyrhillsThis is ridiculous. It shouldn’t even have to be said.
HI – HonoluluExcessive aviation noise decreases livability and the ability to get out of town and enjoy nature.
ID – TetoniaThis issue affects me even in the very rural (and formerly quiet) Teton Valley Idaho. The noise is nearly constant in the mornings on clear days and the commercial aircraft that doesn’t land here is so much worse this year. Now that I understand they are using the same “highways” which apparently is right over my property it makes sense. We used to have maybe one loud flight a day in summer, now it’s nearly constant in the morning hours and picks up again in the late afternoon.
IL – ChicagoI’m signing because the quality of my life has been adversely impacted by airplane noise and the irresponsible elected and appointed officials that are charged with ensuring that progress should never be won at a cost of decimating entire neighborhoods.
IL – ChicagoAirports must be good neighbors just as we are all expected to be good neighbors to each other.
IL – ChicagoNew airplane noise over O’Hare is a nightmare. The FAA should be ashamed of what it has done to average citizens whose sleep is disrupted and whose quality of life has plummeted. There must be immediate reform to help families around O’Hare restore peace of mind during the day and proper sleep overnight.
IL – ChicagoAirplane noise is unbearable. Limits my ability to hear important day to day activities & is damaging to my hearing it’s so very loud.
IL – ChicagoI can’t sleep, work, talk on the phone, talk to neighbors without interruption because of the horrific flight traffic!!!
IL – Chicago“We live 13 miles from O’Hare airport in Chicago and we are bombarded by low flying planes. Some days it is a constant barrage of airplane noise, especially on Sundays. I call them Sonic Sundays. A day of rest is now a day of stress. Our home is no longer a sanctuary, but rather a bunker where we cower at the missile like sounds of the incoming Air Bus a320s and their high pitched whine. For 14 years we never ever had planes flying over our home. We never heard plane noise. That all changed one fateful day when the FAA implemented their disastrous NextGen. Now we no longer can sit outside and enjoy time with our friends without the accompaniment of jet noise and the pollution the jets disgorge descending upon us. We no longer can enjoy our walks in our beautiful parks without the sounds of jets flying overhead. We no longer look forward to coming home. Our retirement plans have been upended, since staying here is completely out of the question. We are only enduring until the day we can leave. We did not move next to the airport, the airport moved next to us. As I said, we live 13 miles from the airport! Why are the planes so low, so far from the airport? Also the corridors the planes fly through are so close together, we are exposed to four different paths and therefore at times there is no break and we hear a constant wash of jet noise as one after another passes either over us or near us. There is no difference between waking up one day to discover planes flying over your house than waking up to find a six-lane highway in front of your house. None. It is an injustice and unacceptable. And to top it all off, the efficiency of O’Hare has not improved one iota as a result of NextGen. The FAA must be held accountable and this injustice must be corrected.
IL – ChicagoThis is a problem, and I want our voices to be heard. Our neighborhoods deserve the quiet and tranquility that we moved them for!
IL – ChicagoI’m signing because, as a resident of Park Ridge, Illinois, we experienced airplane noise throughout my childhood. I have remained in the area, living in a pocket of Chicago that experiences much louder airplane noise than I can remember. Windows cannot be left open. Telephone conversations are greatly impacted. Sleep patterns are greatly impacted. My cousin moved from her home in Park Ridge to Northbrook, Illinois.
IL – ChicagoI no longer can live like this-it’s like living on a normal street that they suddenly change into a freeway with constant semi-trucks!
IL – Chicagoit’s time to hold the airlines accountable.
IL – ChicagoO’Hare noise over entire North side of Chicago
IL – ChicagoI can’t stand the noise from O’Hare airport any longer.
IL – ChicagoI am personally affected by this and frustrated that residents do not have a voice. Yes, economic impact of an airport is important but so are residents and their families.
IL – ChicagoOver 750 jets landing and/or taking off from O’Hare airport go over my house within 1 mile distance each day. Existing DNL noise standards are outdated and in no way adequate to represent the effects of noise pollution of modern aircraft/airport operations.
IL – ChicagoThe planes are ruining our health and enjoyment of our homes.
IL – ChicagoAnd what of the pollution?
IL – LincolnwoodChanges in flight patterns at O’Hare have created continuous loud airplane noise from morning until late at night. Planes pass over our house at very low altitudes. It is difficult to enjoy our yard because of the noise. We are also very concerned about the possibility of aircraft pollution.
IL – Park RidgeI have lived near O’Hare airport for much of my life and never found it to be a major impact on my life. The changes made in 2013 have made a very drastic difference in quality of life in my neighborhood near Cumberland & Higgins in park Ridge, IL. There is a constant roar at most times of the day and includes noticeable vibration (and new cracks in my well settled 90 year old house) and frequent interruption of TV signals.
IL – Wood DaleThe noise and pollution over my home and office in Wood Dale, IL near O’Hare Airport due to aircraft is overwhelming.
MA – BelmontI am on the steering committee of the Boston West Fair Skies Coalition. We face this problem day in day out.
MA – BostonAfter 20 years fighting, trying to reach more considerate, FAA and Operators remain totally inconsiderate of people and property below. Aviation Noise remains grossly, needlessly inequitable in magnitude and in distribution. Non-compliance with regulations, agreements, and commitments is Standard Operating Procedure. Reporting is untimely, irrelevant, inconsistent, incoherent–obscuring reality. There is no monitoring for noise effectiveness; no enforcement for compliance.
MA – BostonWe suffer most early mornings for the duration of +2hrs, and especially during the weekends and holidays of the noise of airplanes taking off from Logan Airport.
MA – BrooklineWe are particularly hit with helicopter noise that the FAA does not seem to worry about.
MA – Chestnut Hill I can’t function with planes flying over me every minute. I’m forced to stop all conversations for 20 seconds every minute because of the noise the planes make. Our home wasn’t like this when we moved in. Now it’s the last place I want to be.
MA – DedhamI live under the departure path of Boston Logan Airport and have had to live with jet traffic noise since 1996. The implementation of Next Gen has made it worse. Also, it is important to recognize that the FAA is a captive regulator; that is, the airline industry controls the FAA through Congress. The technical component of managing air traffic needs to be separated from the regulation of airspace usage.
MA – East WeymouthNo one seems to care about our quality of life. These planes are so low you can’t sleep!
MA – HullI am personally affected on an almost daily basis
MA – MedfordI’m signing here because I often have very loud roaring noise coming from airplanes taking off. I can’t sleep at nights. I am also awakened by the noise.
MA – MedfordI am signing because aircraft noise is a constant issue for our community.
MA – Milton I’m signing because we have planes roaring overhead in Milton, MA every 20 to 30 seconds. Last night they were roaring at 12:30 am, 4:30 am, 4:35 am, 4:45 am — this is absolutely unacceptable
MA – MiltonEndless airplane noise under 4R in Milton, MA
MA – MiltonThis is a serious quality of life issue and the FAA should not be allowed to run amuck.
MA – MiltonI’m impacted daily with a major flight path to Boston’s Logan airport right over my house. The number of flights has increased over the past year – as has the noise.
MA – MiltonMy quality of life has suffered over the past 2 years due to 4 concentrated flight paths over my town. I live and work in town, so no matter where I go, there are the planes with constant noise. Quiet has become a gift, taken away without warning.
MA – MiltonThe FAA is out of control. They are shifting costs from the airlines to residents and communities underneath their skyways at the expense of our health, quality of life, and property values.
MA – MiltonPlane noise in my town has become unceasing and unbearable.
MA – Newton HighlandsOver the last year noise from aircrafts has increased dramatically. Both planes and helicopters.
MA – SalemI am tired of the noise.
MA – SalemEnormous amount of overflights concentrated in narrow corridors.
MD – SevernNextGen has taken over the skies in my neighborhood which has made me mindful of the level of noise pollution we all are forced endure.
NC – Belmont“I’m signing because the FAA & the airline industry has destroyed the lives of millions of Americans via the implementation of NextGen. NextGen noise has destroyed property values without warning, is abusing children and families and shortening the lives of seniors. You cannot imagine what this is doing to any veteran with PTSD who was without warning placed under a NextGen concentrated flight path. NextGen is now creating “Noise Ghettos” where one day all the negatives of a ghetto will exist.
Equally as bad or worse NextGen is a terrorist’s wet-dream. The FAA has now lowered the entire airspace around airports placing passenger jets within easy reach of the ground. Additionally it has lined up the jets along exact routes and has them timed allowing a terrorist the opportunity to take multiple targets within just a few minutes.
NextGen is immoral and idiocy. Please take care of your constituents and put a stop to this NextGen insanity NOW!
NH – PortsmouthI have been living with the noise for the past 2 years which at times is so loud it wakes me right from sleep.
NJ – CranfordNJ has been experiencing excessive jet noise since 1987. I’m sick of runarounds when we have 1972 law restricting the activities carried on as normal today by the aviation industry.
NJ – HobokenIt literally sounds like planes are about to crash down on my apartment, every single night. The noise level is INSANE.
NJ – West CreekI have to listen to airplanes all weekend long. The place I bought for peace and quiet is no longer. This affects my mental health as well as the property value of my home.
NY – AlbertsonWe are all tired of the loud noises form airplanes flying over my house. It is now impossible to sleep with the windows opened.
NY – Babylontremendous increase in low flight traffic in my neighborhood
NY – BaysideThe aviation noise is bringing down the quality of life in Queens – there is a better way to manage this!!
NY – Belle Harbor I am directly affected by the noise. It is especially disruptive at night.
NY – Belle Harbor I am under the constant barrage of commercial jetliner noise from John F. Kennedy International Airport. The only time my area gets a reprieve is when the wind changes, but that only means another nearby neighborhood is undergoing the noise barrage.
Please note that, on a previous community-wide protest against the noise, the FAA indicated the flight patterns overflew a sewage treatment plant, and a former large volume gasworks “tank farm”. One, the tank farm had been removed over 20 years prior, and two, there were numerous 12 story apartment buildings, up for at least 2 decades longer than the tank farm’s removal, on land the FAA’s map said was vacant!
NY – Broadway-FlushingFor 32 years I lived in relative peace and quiet and tolerated noise mitigating flight patterns in my neighborhood. The implementation of NextGen technology more than two years ago destroyed the quality of our lives with planes flying too low, too loud and too frequently. This problem MUST be fixed. We cannot live under these conditions, and nobody should have to live like this.
NY – Brooklynexcessive aviation noise and increased frequency of landings.
NY – BrooklynLoud low flying planes ruins my block
NY – BrooklynThere have been recent changes to flight patterns over Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, NY. The planes are now coming in frequently at a low altitude harming my children’s health, my property values, and my quality of life.
NY – BrooklynI am effected by this noise. Planes fly low and loud directly over my home all day and night. Nonstop. It is unbearable, unhealthy and inhumane.
NY – BrooklynThe constant flights over my neighborhood are destroying the quality of life. Please FAA, make the deafening noise stop!
NY – Brooklynthe airplane noise over the entire neighborhood is deafening. Every 30 seconds from 6AM till well past 11PM.
NY – BrooklynI’m signing because the airplane noise is unbearable some nights. The flights headed to LaGuardia fly too close and even with closed noise reducing windows we have to stop conversations and our kids are woken up!
NY – BrooklynAircraft noise levels – even with doors and windows shut – interfere with our sleep, phone calls, and other aspects of life. We invested enormous financial and sweat equity into a small yard, but it is now stressful to use. The noise is so dense that on some days the sound of incoming planes fills the air before the sound of the departing planes has faded.
NY – BrooklynThe FAA redirected flight tracks to LGA right over my house. 600 planes every single day. The noise is intolerable and I suffer constant respiratory infections year round since 2007. Airspace is NOT the domain of the Federal Government to redesign flight routes as they see fit, nor is it to assist airlines and airport operators become more profitable by cramming more operations due to “capacity demand” and “traffic efficiency”.
NY – BrooklynAviation pathways above residential homes in Brooklyn is dangerous and disruptive.
NY – BrooklynI’m signing because there has been a huge increase of air traffic noise which really disturbs us when we’re trying to enjoy our garden!
NY – Brooklynconstant airplane noise, every 30 seconds apart, all day every day is annoying, offensive, disruptive, and simply maddening. I live 9 miles away from LGA, yet I have planes fly over my home every 30 seconds all day long. This is criminal what the FAA and our elected officials have done to us. Michael Huerta should hang his head in shame for his un-concern for public wellbeing
NY – Brooklyn I care about the noise.
NY – Brooklyn It is criminal that the FAA allows airplanes to fly completely over Brooklyn all day every day for 20 hours a day. Shame on them, and shame on our elected officials for doing nothing. Schumer I’m voting you out.
NY – East HamptonAircraft noise pollution is deleterious to the health of humans and wildlife as evidenced by numerous studies. We cannot continue to obliterate our peace and quiet with no regard for our quality of life. It is not natural for us to sustain and endure the negative impact created by aircraft. We implore you to address this problem with urgency and come to a real solution that may involve the mandating of all aircraft to be built to be less offensive and far quieter.
NY – East HamptonPermissible altitudes for noisy aircraft like seaplanes and helicopters are too low under current FAA flight regulations. The agency is unresponsive to aircraft noise complaints from affected residents on the ground. Congressional action is needed to ensure the public health and welfare is protected by appropriate implementation of meaningful aircraft regulations, currently non-existent.
NY – East HillsIts unfair to have a steady path across one town. Noisy but more importantly, additional pollution.
NY – East MeadowThe FAA should not be allowed to use categorical exclusions as a means to implement changes over communities without any input from those affected by their changes.
NY – East WillistonI live on Long Island.
NY – FlushingThe FAA thinks they are accountable to no one and this needs to change. Neighborhoods matter, too!
NY – FlushingLook at a map of any American city. That massive, brown stain at the edge of it is the airport. Somewhere in the past half century, we decided this was okay. That we would sacrifice an ever expanding chunk of our cities to, ya know, support the growth of those cities. Is that how it works? We lived without airports for hundreds of years. We can manage without them now.
NY – FlushingI am signing because my property is under flight path for LGA. The noise is unbearable.
NY – FlushingThe many low and noisy flights over our neighborhood have become annoying, disruptive and very interruptive to conversation and frustrates telephone and TV usage.
NY – FlushingIt’s time to concern ourselves with citizens not only corporations .
NY – FlushingFlights from my local airport, LGA, are sometimes, very low, loud, and frequent (less than a minute apart).
NY – FlushingThere are too many airplanes flying over my neighborhood. I have lived here for 41 years and the airplane noise has become unbearable over the last three years.
NY – Flushing“It’s bad for my HEALTH! The other night at 4:52AM they nearly took of my roof! I called & found myself screaming into the phone & becoming abusive! I’m 81 & 9/12th years old & ashamed of the way they made me talk! I’ve lived in Flushing since 1951! If they remove the perimeter life will not be worth living here, & I’m to move elsewhere!
NY – FlushingAirplane noise is affecting the quality of my life.
NY – Garden CityI am signing because the FAA needs to be held accountable for their disregard for the general public whom they abuse in their effort to promote the desires of the airline industry.
NY – Garden CityI’m signing because this is ruining my quality of life and needs to stop. I can’t even sleep in the summer anymore.
NY – Garden CityI am signing because I can’t sleep at night and the constant (every 90 second) sound of whining engine noise isn’t only damaging my sleep but also contributing to an increase risk of heart attack and high blood pressure.
NY – Garden CityToo much noise.
NY – Garden CityI am tired of being in a flight path and cannot enjoy my patio and yard because of the loud and low flying planes one after another.
NY – Garden CityMy house is directly under this path. If I had known 31 years ago that this is what would happen to my house I never would have moved here!!!
NY – Garden CityPlanes are too noisy over my house
NY – GreenvaleConstant overhead noise from airplanes
NY – HewlettThe noise of the planes is so loud it is disturbing and the other day a plane was so low it sounded like a bomb, I thought it was going to crash into my house. My kids came running into my room very afraid.
NY – Jackson HeightsI can not get enough sleep because airplane noise is ruining my sleep pattern.
NY – Jackson HeightsI live about 2 miles from LGA and the planes literally fly directly over our street. Flights start at 6am and continue until 11:30pm most nights. Planes come frequently as twice in 90 seconds. Try relaxing at home when there’s a near constant stream of plane noise overhead!
NY – Jackson HeightsI wake up before 6am every other weekend listening to the planes taking off at LGA
NY – Jerichonoise hurt people
NY – MalverneMy life has been stolen from me by the FAA.
NY – MalverneWe need our Congressional Representatives to make the FAA responsive to Congress and the public.
NY – MalverneJFK departures are out of control, especially overnight with the low, heavy cargo flights using the new runway 4
NY – ManhassetThe noise is very disturbing.
NY – ManhassetThe change in flight patterns affects my home significantly. Often I can’t hear normal conversations or phone calls.
NY – ManhassetThe increase in Helicopter noise has become intolerable. I’ve been told that these flights can take place over the LIE but the pilots continue to fly over populated areas. It’s become a quality of life issue!
NY – MattituckI’m signing this because I, along with many residents on the lovely North Fork, have been inundated with aircraft noise to the East Hampton airport and Westhampton Francis S. Gabreski airport. I DO NOT LIVE NEAR THESE AIRPORTS and yet as a resident of the North Fork, I am inundated with all types of aircraft noise especially seaplanes and helicopters. The FAA has done NOTHING to help try to reduce the noise on the east end of Long Island. I live under a “flightpath” and I want our elected officials to change the current North shore Route for all helicopters flying to and from East Hampton airport. The time is NOW and for our elected officials to make the necessary changes so that residents can enjoy our beautiful parks, beaches, places of worships and most importantly our backyards! This is a quality of life issue that must be addressed!
NY – New YorkJust too many planes over the Rockaway Peninsula. Year’s back you all promised to alternate the flights paths and one was to use the Marine Park Bridge “called the Bridge Climb” well that never happened and all because you want to save a couple hundred dollars on fuel. Also now there are many more planes than there were then boy that sure did not help out the residents on the Rockaway Peninsula.
NY – New YorkI am signing because every day I heard the plane flying very loudly, the sound affect my sleep.
NY – New YorkRecent construction at LGA has caused departing plane noise over our normally quiet area of the neighborhood. Want to make sure this does not become permanent.
NY – New YorkAirplane noise and pollution is driving us crazy in Jackson Heights, Queens. NY
NY – New YorkThe airplane noise is simply unbearable..
NY – New YorkThe airplane noise in my neighborhood (East Hills) is so loud and it makes my house shake. It is unbearable and cannot continue.
NY – New YorkBrooklyn, NY is suffering from a major daily assault of helicopters and low-flying aircraft. The noise is deafening. At night I have to sleep with earplugs in. We live in a neighborhood with one of the highest median incomes in NYC, and the highest property taxes. If it’s like this here, what’s it like for people in poorer communities? The assault on our skies must stop. You are destroying our sanity and the eardrums of our children with your failure to act.
NY – New York I hear a plane landing now right over my home!!!!
NY – Port WashingtonWe need congressional support to have the ability to implement change to a system that allows the aviation industry trample our health and quality of life. quietskies.net
NY – Port WashingtonMy beautiful home in which I live has been defiled by air noise which has recently become unbearable due to the change in flight patterns.
NY – QueensI am tired of the constant airplane noise in the area I live.
NY – Queensthe low flying landing plane can be very noisy in the early morning.
NY – QueensLa Guardia Airport is ruining my life. : (
NY – QueensI am signing because airplane noise over Jackson Heights, Queens, NYC has become unbearable thanks to NextGen.
NY – QueensThe airplane noise coming from planes arriving or leaving at LGA airport is ruining our lives.
NY – QueensFor more than 30 years, we lived in relative peace and quiet. All his changed with NextGen flight patterns implemented without notification at LaGuardia Airport that make planes fly too low, too loud and way too frequently, effectively destroying the quality of life for our community. Nobody should have to live under these conditions.
NY – QueensI’m signing this petition because I believe that government has a duty to protect the lives and wellbeing of all its citizens. I recognize that our world has changed, I embrace change and technology, but not at the expense of the health and wellbeing of its citizens. The quality of life of those of us who live here in Bayside, has dramatically changed for the worse in the past 4 years due to extreme aircraft traffic and noise. I believe that there is room for compromise and acceptance on both sides, it can happen and I urge out elected officials to protect the interest of its citizens as well as they have protected the interests of the big companies.

NY – RoslynI’m signing this petition so that East Hills will no longer be subjected to excessive noise from planes flying too close to the ground.
NY – RoslynI am signing this because i do not want the noise of all the planes that fly across my home. I am unable to sit in my suburb home with peace and quiet. If I knew planes would be flying above and low above my home as regularly as they do.. every few minutes, I would have not purchased my home. It is particularly frequent from 4 pm till late in the evening.
NY – RoslynConstant noise morning and evening
NY – RoslynIt’s too loud and scary as if the plain is crashing on your house
NY – RoslynIt is terrible what the FAA and Port Authority have done to our neighborhood. The noise is unacceptable. The planes fly so low you can see passenger’s faces.
NY – Roslyn HeightsThe noise of airplanes over my house is intolerable and we can no longer enjoy our backyard or sleep at night
NY – Roslyn HeightsI can’t sit in my backyard with getting a headache from the planes flying overhead or have a conversation
NY – Roslyn HeightsI’m signing because we have had frequent planes flying overhead heading to Kennedy Airport and the noise level has increased overhead within the past few years, not to mention, the planes have been flying very low overhead.
NY – Roslyn HeightsNo noise pollution!
NY – Roslyn HeightsLow flying planes are disruptive and impose health hazards to my family with children as well as my community.

NY – Roslyn HeightsEast hills has too much air traffic!
NY – Roslyn Heightsi am signing this petition because the airplane noise in my neighborhood has greatly affected the quality of life in my neighborhood. I encourage congress to pass the 55 Decibel noise level for airplane traffic over our neighborhood.
NY – Roslyn HeightsI moved in to east hills 1 year ago and I feel as if I live at an airport the noise level is horrendous!!!
NY – Roslyn HeightsMy health is deteriorating and the noise is excessive due in part to the low flying airplanes 45 seconds apart on a daily basis for 12+ hours a day.
NY – Roslyn HeightsI would like to sit outside in my backyard and actually hear a conversation rather than an airplane flying overhead. I would like my children to be able to nap without being woken by the shaking of my home every 3-5 minutes due to a plane flying overhead.
NY – Roslyn HeightsJumbo jets should not be flying over east hills so often and at such low altitudes. East hills is 15 miles from JfK and historically never had planes flying here to the extent it has now at 30-60 second intervals and as low as 1500 feet.
NY – Roslyn HeightsThere is so much noise, distraction, pollution because of all the planes flying overhead our homes. It can be very disturbing and scary for our children to see all these planes flying on top of us almost every minute at times. We’d appreciate anything you can do to eliminate passage by here.
NY – Roslyn Heights I’m concerned about the health of our neighborhoods because of the excessive noise and the unwillingness of the FAA to correct this long-standing problem
NY – Sag HarborI am fed up with the hands off attitude of the FAA and our elected representatives.
NY – Valley StreamThe NextGen changes have created an intolerable living situation not only for me personally but for every other American citizen unfortunate enough to have found him or herself inadvertently placed under one of the new, relentless and punishing “”highways in the sky.”” The FAA’s reliance on computer modeling rather than actual, legitimate tests to determine an impact of no significance on the ground was bogus and should have been illegal. Please help the countless affected citizens and get the FAA to stop this nightmare.
NY – Williston ParkI’m signing this because I am in complete agreement with the itemized provisions to manage excessive aviation noise.
NY – WoodmereWe live with constant airplane noise and it is ruining our quality of life.
OR – BanksHillsboro, OR, flight training has devalued my property and detracted from my enjoyment of it.
OR – BanksExcessive aviation noise especially due to flight training, military operations, and recreational flying is destroying livability and degrading the environment. I am routinely negatively impacted by Oregon’s Hillsboro Airport as well as other general aviation airports throughout the region that profit at public expense from the flight training industry. The exploitation and disregard exhibited by the FAA and the aviation industry towards area residents is deplorable.
OR – HillsboroI live almost 2 miles away from the Hillsboro Airport (in Oregon) and about 1 mile away from the approach path to the runway but I am routinely subjected to low flying flight training aircraft circling around my property as they practice touch and go training maneuvers. At times an aircraft comes over every 1-2 minutes. In addition, I believe recently that the Portland, Oregon airport (15 miles away) changed their commercial jet pattern so that I now get the pleasure of the annoying roar of those jets every few minutes at times. I suspect NextGen has something to do with that. In addition residents that live closer to the airport are bombarded by frequent helicopter noise from the flight training activities at the Hillsboro Airport. That I believe should be considered a criminal activity. Besides the noise, these flight training aircraft emit lead over our neighborhoods. Lead is potent neurotoxicant that has no known threshold for its toxic effects. Lead does not break down. Lead bioaccumulates in a child’s body and brain robbing that child of some of their neurocognitive potential. The EPA recently failed to lower the National Ambient Air Quality Standard for lead, with the Administrator determining that for a small percentage of young children a loss of a few IQ points is acceptable. Many of those children are the ones that live near airports that continue to use leaded fuel such as the Hillsboro Airport which is estimated to emit 0.9 tons of lead with the use of an additional runway. What is particularly galling is that the flight training company is owned by out of state investment firms and recruits students from outside of the United States. Furthermore our local officials are not willing to use their “police powers” to eliminate the non-interstate flight training operations as was done in the SeaAir case in New York. The City of Hillsboro does not have grant assurances from the FAA that would prohibit them from using their police powers. In addition, at the Hillsboro Airport there is no radar and no ability of the air traffic controllers to know the altitudes of these flight training aircraft so that the Flight Standards District Office can take appropriate punitive actions when the flight training aircraft are flying in violation of CFR 91.119 [Minimum Safe Altitudes] (a) and (b). To summarize, aviation noise causes loss of enjoyment of my property and is detrimental to my health. The lead pollution from these flight training foreign students is detrimental to our children. The inability of the FSDO to effectively control low flying aircraft is a safety concern. Please carefully read this petition and give our airspace back to us.
OR – HillsboroBecause I live near a huge GA airport with jets & flight training with no care for the communities impact. It’s frustrating because you have no voice to affect change- every governing entity tells you to contact the other one if you have a concern. It’s a useless circle. And it’s loud and constant even 20+ miles out. Some pilots try to fly quietly but they are the exception. I can’t believe there aren’t stronger regulations. The current structure is so antiquated and ineffective. Noise abatement is a joke.
OR – HillsboroAircraft noise degrades the health and wellbeing surrounding communities.
OR – HillsboroWe get no support or satisfaction from the Hillsboro, Or airport management.
OR – HillsboroHoping for a quieter environment to enjoy our home in.
OR – HillsboroI have experienced many events of excessive aviation noise due to planes flying too low to lack of adequate regulation for helicopter elevations and especially helicopter flight training over residential areas.
OR – MulinoFAA is completely failing, on matters related to the environment and residential quality of life. A classic regulatory capture. FAA works solely for the airlines and aviation interests, with no consideration for people. Congress, we need you to rein in this out-of-control agency.
OR – PortlandI know noise can be reduced considerably: The differences in noise of like aircraft are huge, ranging from only mildly annoying to the verge of painful. Just replacing the engines on the outlying noisiest 20 percent would make a huge improvement.
OR – PortlandI am tired of low flying helicopters and planes contributing to noise pollution, which is a known health hazard. The rich don’t think they have any boundaries.
OR – WilsonvilleI live near a “rural airport” that is rapidly being converted to high volume jet traffic. I was good with a small rural airport, not with this . . .
PA – GreenvilleI want better environment for us.
PA – MorrisvilleThe FAA must be contained
RI – MiddletownAircraft noise in my home state of RI and in my current state of NY dramatically affects quality of life and also has detrimental effects on the health of individuals affected.
TX – KatyWhile I do not necessarily agree with all of the proposed 2015 reauthorization provisions, I do think that the FAA needs to do a better job when taking into account the impact of airplane noise on those that live around airports. I myself live close to the Centennial Airport and some days the noise is extremely bothersome. Some planes fly so low it seems as though they could look into my window and see what i’m eating for dinner.
VA – ArlingtonAircraft noise greatly affects my quality of life here in Arlington, Virginia and it’s getting worse. I do not understand why we do not have any regulations governing daily and nighttime noise levels in this country. This has to change now!
VT – Bellows FallsAircraft noise is part of a mosaic of other unhealthy noise from traffic and construction activities in our part of NYC. It’s ridiculous that NYC continues to tout itself as “the city that never sleeps,” as if that were a positive quality.
WA – Redmond“Due to implementation of FAA NextGen low altitude continuous climb/descent and denser skies procedures aircraft noise disrupts our sleep throughout the quiet hours and is disruptive and stressful throughout the waking hours. The deleterious health effects are well-known.
The year on year increase of flights at shockingly low altitudes is a net gain in noise and air pollution, though NextGen procedures have been given an environmentally-friendly whitewash. These procedures are about financial gain for the aviation industry. Low altitude continuous climb/descent and denser skies procedures must stop. They are adversely affecting millions of people throughout the U.S. and are a degradation of our skies.
WA – SeattleI’m signing because I moved due to aircraft noise. I was experiencing health issues after the NextGen flight plan implemented in Seattle.
WA – SeattleThe pollution and noise are out of hand.
WA – SeattleThere are 7 newborn babies on my block. Aircraft noise impacts health & should not be tolerated in high density urban neighborhoods!
