O’Hare Fly Quiet Test Program Set to Expire

Take action now to ensure noise reduction program continues in the future

The Fly Quiet program was created by the Chicago Department of Aviation as a test to determine whether rotating runway usage would help reduce nighttime noise levels experienced by area residents when jets land and take off at O’Hare International Airport. Many of those living in the affected area believe the test program has been a success and is a significant step forward in providing more immediate noise relief for area families.

Created as a temporary effort, the trial period of the Fly Quiet Program will expire on December 25th of this year. The decision to make the program permanent is partially based on community response to a survey created by O’Hare officials. Rep. Winger urges all residents to complete the survey, and help ensure that the Fly Quiet program will continue to bring much need noise relief. Click on the button below to access the survey.

Representative Christine Winger continues to be a strong advocate for the 45th District, which includes several communities affected by unbearable noise levels stemming from O’Hare Airport. Rep. Winger has sponsored and supported legislative efforts to reduce noise levels and the impact noise has on area communities. She will actively take up this issue again during the next legislative session.
