Noise Compatibility Program

The impact an airport has on a community goes beyond creating jobs and helping people get where they want to go. From takeoff to touchdown, the noise it generates can truly affect the day-to-day lives of the surrounding community. That’s why the Louisville Regional Airport Authority (LRAA) is working hand-in-hand with the community to make strides for a better tomorrow.

Community Noise Forum (CNF)

Working together to monitor the implementation of the Noise Compatibility Program, the Louisville Regional Airport Authority formed the Community Noise Forum (CNF), made up of designated representatives from all airport stakeholders, including:

The LRAA’s Board of Directors, LRAA Management, Louisville Air Traffic Control staff, Louisville Airport Affairs Committee, Kentucky Air National Guard, United Parcel Service, General Aviation community at SDF, University of Louisville, Louisville Metro Government, Airport Neighbors’ Alliance (ANA), Southern Indiana and community representatives from each quadrant bounding the airport.

All Community Noise Forum meetings are free and open to the public. Typically held every fourth Monday of the month at 6 p.m. at the LRAA Maintenance Building at 4320 Park Blvd. The Forum’s next meeting is a Special Meeting scheduled for 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 9, 2023.

For questions or to confirm a meeting date, contact the Airport Authority’s Noise Officer Bob Slattery at 502-363-8516 or email


The Community Noise Forum In-Person Meeting scheduled for Thursday, November 9, 2023 at 6:00 p.m. will alternatively be conducted by video teleconference using Zoom Meetings. If you cannot attend the In-Person Meeting you can still participate by video teleconference using Zoom Meetings.

Members of the public who wish to participate may join the meeting remotely using Zoom. Please contact Bob Slattery at 502-363-8516 for meeting connection information.

Flight Tracking

Thanks to Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport’s Internet Flight Tracking System, you can now view, in real-time and in replay mode, the movement of flights and air traffic patterns within the Louisville Region.

Residents of airport communities can now arm themselves with the latest flight information technology, familiarizing themselves with the use of their airspace as it relates to their homes. SDF’s flight tracking system is part of a broader attempt at open communication in the community.
