Sound Off on Airport Noise



The Citizens Association of Georgetown and the DC Fair Skies Coalition — which was formed last summer to address aircraft noise and challenge new departure routes in court — have participated in roundtable discussions with the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, the Federal Aviation Administration and other area representatives regarding the move of departure routes from Reagan National to the east side of the Potomac River, creating what they consider to be unacceptable noise levels in Georgetown. The FAA has agreed to study moving the routes closer to the west side of the river, but evaluating environmental and safety issues will take 18 to 24 months.

If you would like to comment on disruptions caused by airplane noise, you may file a complaint with the MWAA at or go to for more information.
