We Asked Hawthorne Airport Neighbors: What’s Your Greatest Safety or Noise Concern?


Here are some of the responses (we keep answers anonymous to protect neighbors privacy)…

  1. Surf Air planes are too loud and fly land too low to the ground upon approach to the airport over the Parkside Village community.
  2. Airplanes flying over my house
  3. Jets flying and helicopters over my home at all hours of the day and night and the noise that it makes, they changed the flight path, and how is the airport going to sound proof my home if there are not any changes made ASAP?
  4. 1) Planes are flying low and north of 120th directly over residential area. 2) Planes flying late at night.
  5. Noise
  6. Noise early in the morning and flying too low over the Raymond power lines.
  7. Low flying planes and noise, property value and times planes are permitted to land.
  8. Low flying, flight path over Wiseburn, all hours flights
  9. I am concerned about the airplanes flying directly over our house which is located north of Hollypark. These constant flights are polluting the area with exhaust fumes that are harmful to our health and the frequently blaring close encountered noise is very frightening. I have logged flights coming in occasionally after 10:00 pm and the sounds from the planes are very terrifying; sounding as if the plane is coming directly into your home. On 1/18/18 a plane flew directly over the house at 10:51 PM and the sound was horrendous. We have lived here for 2 years as of April 2018 and were told by the selling agent we would not be directly affected by the planes because the Hawthorne airport is not a busy airport and the planes are coming in over the park. Well, the majority of the times the planes fly directly over our home. I’ve stated several times that I am going to the city to file a complaint but I am happy to see that neighbors and citizens are coming together to address this concerning issue.
