Highlights from the Federal Aviation Authority's 1976 Noise Abatement Act -

 Airport proprietors are liable





"Airport proprietors are primarily responsible  for planning and implementing

action designed to reduce the effect of noise on residents of the surrounding

area. Such actions include....noise abatement ground procedures and acoustical

treatments."  2009 FAA report





The Federal government has no control over

flights under 500' off the ground. The "Class G" airspace is "uncontrolled".
