Noise Inquiries and Flight Tracking

To help community members interested in learning about flight operations and noise levels in their area, Santa Monica Airport implemented Webtrak, a new web-based app which gives stakeholders the ability to perform flight investigations from a personal computer or mobile device. The app enables the community to visualize actual flight tracks and noise levels around the Airport, investigate aircraft related noise events, as well as reporting specific aircraft directly to the Airport’s Noise Office. 
Flight tracks have a delay of approximately 45 minutes due to data processing.
