Fly Quiet Program

The use of designated noise abatement flight procedures to further reduce the impact of aircraft noise. The Fly Quiet Program provides comprehensive guidance for pilots to use designated quiet flight and operating procedures developed by the local airport authorities, the airlines, and Air Traffic Controllers. Fly Quiet Aviator’s Manuals are distributed¬† to airline pilots and air traffic controllers that contain information on preferred runways and flight tracks which route aircraft over the least populated areas — such as forest preserves, highways, as well as commercial and industrial areas. These programs¬† are in use in several major cities including San Francisco, Chicago and Houston.
