Dear friends,

Many constituents have been reporting to me the increase of aircraft noise caused by the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) new flight paths into San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and how they are being affected.

As we work to resolve this issue, I first and foremost encourage you to report any excessive aircraft noise complaints to the SFO, SJC and OAK Noise Abatement Offices to ensure that your report is officially documented. The SFO Noise Abatement Office can be reached at (650) 821-4736, or via email at sfo.noise@flysfo.com. You can file an online complaint to the SJC Noise Abatement Office here. You can file a complaint to the OAK Noise Abatement Office here, or by calling (510) 563-6463. Your call will become part of the official record and official documentation.
