What happens when I call the noise complaint line (303-271-4874)?

The line is used to track the noise program's effectiveness and attempt to identify excessively loud aircraft. There are naturally more complaints during the summer months because aircraft performance suffers in warmer temperatures and people spend time with windows and doors open or go outside to enjoy the weather. As a result, we know this is a time to heavily promote the program. Also, if there are several complaints against one particular aircraft at a specific date and time, we can sometimes track the "offender" and directly contact the company. Airport staff has found this direct company contact to be beneficial. Calling the noise line for every aircraft that flies overhead reduces the program's effectiveness.
