I don't understand these idiots who build a house under the approach/arrival path to airports, and then bitch about airplane noise! What the hell do they expect. A good example is Phoenix Sky Harbor. Its been there since the late '10s or early '20s, much longer than almost any housing in the area. Same deal with Mesa, AZ Falcon Field. It's been there since the Big One, it was an RAF aux training base. Then some morons build houses around it in the orange groves and put a trailer park across the road, and now they bitch about the airplane noise! Another interesting case is Denver. Everyone whined about noise around Stapelton, so the city/county spent millions of dollars sound proofing peoples homes. Now they move the airport out of town, and everyone bitches cause they have to drive too far to get to the airport. Bottom line: If you don't want to hear airplane noise, don't live by the airport! And oh yes, noise abatement procedures do affect things like stated above (climb/departure procedures). Mark I love airplane noise!
