Can't you tell the plane that is flying over my residence to go somewhere else?

Once an aircraft has left the ground, it is in Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) jurisdiction. For the safety of both pilots and the community, only the FAA can direct an aircraft to change altitude or flight path and use certain runways. This direction is often based on wind and weather conditions that may vary throughout the day. While Airports staff cannot direct a plane to change direction, communication with pilots regarding community concerns is ongoing. If you notice an aircraft flying objectionably low or loud, we value your feedback. You may submit an Airport Feedback Form, which can be found on the Community Resources: Noise Management page.
