DFW's Monitoring

On Noise: DFW monitors sound from aircraft operations and from local community activities via a series of permanently-mounted noise monitor sites strategically located in nine cities, and three counties. The measured noise data is correlated with FAA radar data to determine the source attributable to aircraft operations (arrivals and departures). The correlated noise data confirms compliance with federal stipulations from the 1992 Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) and provides local communities and builders with baseline aircraft and community sound exposure levels for building design and planning.

On Flight Tracks: DFW’s Noise Compatibility Office is responsible for monitoring aircraft flight tracks, via FAA radar data feed. The flight tracks are retained by DFW’s tracking system and can be superimposed on a street base map to evaluate flights in the DFW Metroplex. DFW’s flight tracking system stores information on individual flights such as Flight ID, aircraft type and operation, as well as, aggregate information regarding volume and frequent of flights, average altitude, etc over any geographic point in Metroplex. For example, DFW’s flight tracking system can help a potential home buyer understand the type of operations that could occur over a home of interest prior to their decision to purchase.

DFW would like to update you regarding the runway rehabilitation work of Runway 18R/36L.  We appreciate your patience during this improtant project for DFW Airport.

We are planed to inform you that Runway 18R/36L is reopened for daytime operations as of April 14, 2021.  Please note that there is still significant work on taxiways and electrical adjacent to the runway; however, DFW is reopening the runway for day use in order to relieve closure efforst for local communities and for our airline partners.  Runway 18R/36L's use will be limited by closures of some runway exit taxiway that are stil closed for reconstruction.  As a result, arriving aircraft will remain on the runway longer to be able to exit, limiting the use of the runway.  So, while some air traffic will shift back to this runway when it reopened, you may still experience flights from air traffic that are using other runways until the runway is avilable at full capacity.  Finally, Runway 18R/36L will be closed for night work from 10pm to 8 am until May 4th, at which time the night closures will be reduced from 11pm to 7am.

We encourage you to continue to use DFW resources to view near real-time flights at https://dfw.noiselab.casper.aero.  We've recently updated our website, however, you can still access noise information at https://www.dfwairport.com/business/community/aircraftnoise/.  As always, residents with inquiries or comments should contact DFW Airport by email at dfwnoise@dfwairport.com, or on the Noise Complaint Hotline, at 972-973-3192 (manned 24/7).
