Airport Noise Subcommittee


The Airport Noise Subcommittee is the successor to the Airport Issues Committee (AIC), established in January 2005. Its purpose is to address a wide range of airport-related issues of interest to Arlington County that have arisen as a result of the proximity to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. ACCF recognizes the importance of the airport to the economic well being of Arlington County and the Washington Metropolitan region as a whole, as well as the convenience afforded by the proximity of the airport. However, aircraft noise has increased dramatically in many Arlington neighborhoods due to an increased number of flights, flight paths that no longer follow the river pathway, flights operating earlier in the morning and later in the evening, and steeper ascent rates during takeoffs. Background on the AIC may be found here [PDF, 172 KiB].
