What can you do to stop the noise?

You can submit Noise Complaints via your internet browser:
Please submit complaints often. They are very important for establishing the severity of the problem to our elected officials and others.  Your complaints can be simple and brief.  It only takes a minute to fill out the web form the first time -- after that it's even faster.  When you are filling out the form, it's best if you only choose ONE EVENT type.  It doesn't matter which one you choose (for example "too low," "tool loud," or "constant noise") but JUST CHOOSE ONE.  

You can also track the plane that woke you up or the planes recently overhead HERE. Please note that the DCA WebTrak site (airplane tracker) operates on a 1-hour, real-time data delay.  Historical flight activity for prior days is also available at this DCA WebTrak site.  Track noisy jet aircraft in real time as they fly overhead with The Flight Tracker app for iOS and the FlightAware Flight Tracker app for Android.

Tell your neighbors about the Coalition and hang flyers letting others know we are here to help!  The flyer can be found under the Downloads and Templates tab.  Post your letters, photos, stories, etc. to Facebook or Twitter.  We need to create as much buzz as possible.
