The MAC and representatives from the Federal Aviation Administration attend the regularly scheduled Flying Cloud Airport Advisory Commission (FCAAC) meetings to present and discuss the recent noise complaints from residents. These discussions have resulted in new procedures at the airport to reduce noise. This effort is ongoing.
The FCAAC has endorsed the KFCM Pilot Guide [PDF] developed by MAC. The guide provides important noise abatement information and procedures and has been distributed to all pilots in the field and the airport businesses.
The MAC maintains a 24-hour noise complaint and information hotline. Neighbors can file aircraft noise complaints online or by calling the hotline (612-726-9411). If there are questions about specific operations at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport or any of the other MAC-owned airports, please contact the Noise Program Office staff through the hotline. Noise Program Office staff members respond to callback requests during normal business hours.
