AIRPLANE NOISE SUMMARY

Issues: 

  • Increasing overall flights lead to increase in plane noise concerns.

  • Monitoring plane noise throughout Sunnyvale is difficult at the moment as flights have reduced due to COVID-19.

 

Tentative Proposals: 

  • Place sensors throughout Sunnyvale to register airplane noise AFTER normal flight schedules return.

  • As Sunnyvale is a member of Roundtable (Permanent aircraft noise mitigation entity): 

    • Encourage residents to formally submit noise complaints as supporting evidence to FAA recommendations.

    • Support Rountable's proposals to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of preventing jet noise over concentrated flight corridors and work with current laws that prevent the shifting of plane noise from one area to another.
