How are noise hotline statistics kept?

Noise statistics are reported in a format similar to that used by Denver International Airport. Statistics are tracked by household and neighborhood to help determine problem areas. The offending aircraft can sometimes - not always - be tracked, and when the situation warrants, we can contact the aircraft owner to discuss the situation. Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport (RMMA) is part of the National Airspace System, and the federal government has designated it as a National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (NPIAS) facility. This means RMMA is essential to the nation's air transportation system and cannot deny access to any specific user, nor does the airport have the authority to limit hours of operation. Contact us at 303-271-4850 for more details.
