The Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) was created by state law in 1943. A public corporation, the commission was designed to provide for coordinated aviation services throughout the Twin Cities metropolitan area.
Today, the MAC operates the third largest aviation system in the nation, consisting of Minneapolis-St. Paul International and six reliever airports, including Flying Cloud Airport. A board of commissioners appointed by Minnesota's governor and the mayors of Minneapolis and St. Paul sets and interprets the commission's policies. Those policies are implemented by the commission's executive director and staff.
The MAC maintains a 24-hour noise complaint and information hotline. Our neighbors can file aircraft noise complaints by clicking the link below or by calling the hotline at 612-726-9411. If there are questions about specific operations at MSP or any of the MAC-owned airports, please contact the Noise Program Office staff through the hotline. Noise Program Office staff responds to callback requests during normal business hours.
