Noise Isssues

The FAA does keep track of noise issues and complaints and does have an assigned Noise Ombudsman to assist with answering questions and directing complaints to the appropriate entity. To contact the FAA Aviation Noise Ombudsman, send an email to or leave a voice mail at (202) 267-3521.

Concord-Padgett Regional Airport did complete a noise analysis as part of our recent Master Plan project and it was determined that noise levels above 65 LDN (the FAA's determination of negative noise impact) remain on the airport property.  The airport does not control the airspace around the airport but does ask pilots to be mindful of neighborhoods and fly quietly through our signage, emails, and social media.

Specific complaints are logged and can be left by calling the designated noise abatement coordinator at 704-920-5914 or sending an email to
