It seems to be more and more frequent, Regardless of complaints.  I’m just coming to terms that this will probably be the new reality.  As in a permanent flight path on weekends.

I encourage you (and everyone else) to keep filing complaints.  At the very least, after filing a complaint one receives an email confirmation from the Port Authority.  Looking back at those, I don't think it is becoming more and more frequent.  July was bad, but I think there was only one date in June, and this is the second day in August.  It's nowhere near as bad as it was in 2015.

Here is the link to log a complaint:

it's been really bad this summer. but it was worse in '98/'99, then almost non-existent for a few years. that's the plus. i am concerned about the "new and improved" LGA handling more traffic and creating a permanent din.

Please remember that there are two projects happening at LaG.

First is the major rehabilitation of the whole airport.

Second is the renovation of the current runways that are in use.

So, complaints are good to keep the pressure on the Port Authority. But I doubt anything can be done to reduce the fliy-overs until the total rehabilitatiion project is complete. I also think that the horrible humidity that we have had this summer both keeps the airplanes lower and keeps the noise contained in the area.

Today’s noise is particularly horrible.  The WebTrak info said the work would end at 12 noon, now it is 5:40pm and the planes are relentless!  Please make a complaint before this becomes our new reality

Is the plane noise going to be every weekend now? I had thought it was supposed to alternate.

Does anyone know what time the planes began taking off over Jackson Heights yesterday? I am grateful it didn't start at 6am, as it had the past few weekends. But honestly, these frequent weekend disruptions are completely unacceptable. Also what does that noise and vibration do to these historic buildings, nevermind the pollution these things spew.

The strange thing was that when I checked WebTrak, there were no reports of any runways scheduled for maintenance. Usually when all that noise happens, it's due to that. Maybe it was something that came up unexpectedly and they had to close a runway for a few hours.

The planes don't have any affect on the buildings, only on the people living in them.
