Airport Noise Information

Scottsdale Airport is a general aviation reliever facility which serves to relieve smaller and slower aircraft operations from commercial airports. There is no scheduled commercial service or airliners that operate from Scottsdale Airport.

The airport is owned and operated by the city of Scottsdale, but the Federal Aviation Administration manages aircraft in flight and establishes flight patterns. As a public airport, it must be available for public use 24 hours a day, seven days a week. However, the airport through the Noise Abatement program encourages operators to fly before 10 p.m. and after 6 a.m.

Serving aviation demand while managing aircraft noise within the airport's vicinity can be a challenge. Since 1999, the city has managed a Noise Abatement Program to encourage aircraft operators to comply with noise abatement procedures.

The Scottsdale Airport Noise Abatement program is based on the philosophy that good neighbors make every effort to understand the concerns of their neighbors, and take action to minimize aircraft influences experienced by residents.

On the horizon: Phoenix MetroPlex

The FAA has begun evaluating additional review and adjustments to commercial airspace in the Phoenix Metropolitan area as part of Metroplex project. Scottsdale Aviation staff has joined with an airport coalition requesting a seat at the table during this project and enhanced outreach in our community. We will continue to monitor this project and provide updates.
