elevation changes and clear weather rerouting of flights provide us
an improved standard of living? Will residents get true relief
from air noise and jet exhaust pollution with this many
proposed overflights? The airspace is
currently being redesigned. Now is the time to get honest answers

The Munich airport noise study A new browser window will launch.
A longitudinal study of physiological, perceptual, cognitive, motivational and quality-of-life effects on children. The study was made to understand how chronic environmental noise stress affects physiology, perception, cognition, motivation and quality-of-life in children. Children around the old and new airports in Munich (relocated May 1992) haven been studied over several years.
League For the Hard of Hearing A new browser window will launch.
People who live close to airports suffer more than mere annoyance from ascending and descending aircraft. Beyond annoyance, aircraft noise may have significant mental and physical health impacts on people who live below the flight path of commercial and private airplanes. Since the 1970's, many studies have found aircraft noise linked to the following: stress, hypertension, sleep disturbances, work-related performance, learning and academic performance...

the League For the Hard
Welcome to the Philadelphia Airport (PHL) decibel club.
Sad but true if you live in a flight path of Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) or any large modern airport. If aircraft fly over your home and neighborhoods at 4 or 5 am at 1000 ft (MSL) or at 60 second intervals during your child's nap time, you are a member of the club. Because of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) operating procedures and the increase of available gates at Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) one can expect as little as no noise to peaks of 100 decibels for hours on end.
Possible Noise Solutions? "the FAA and Philadelphia International Airport had already taken action to address noise issues, Mark Pesche, public relations manager for the airport. Pesche said the flying height over North Wilmington was raised the previous July, from 1,800 to 3,000 feet." Brandywine Community News January 2003
The FAA did raise the approach elevation from 1800 to 3000 ft over Delaware in July 2002. They just forgot to mention the 1700 ft. approach minimum shown in the graphic below.
