Noise Program

The County of Ventura Department of Airports appreciates your seeking out resources to help you understand how aircraft noise and overflight concerns are addressed. We are actively working to address existing concerns related to noise and to ensure the community knows we are listening and working to improve airport operations.

In the coming weeks and months the Department of Airports will implement our plan to engage with neighborhood groups and hold information workshops. The goal is that we remain available to listen to concerns without time constraints and act to improve in areas where we have the ability to effect change.

You can find links to our existing Voluntary Noise Abatement Procedures below. These are provided as a baseline so that residents have an understanding about prior planning and programming related to aircraft noise and overflight.
