HELICOPTER/AIRCRAFT NOISE AND WEBTRAK INFORMATION

Over the past year, the City has been participating in subcommittee meetings for the Los Angeles Area Helicopter Noise Coalition (LAAHNC) in an effort to work with the various operators to come up with solutions to reduce the impact of helicopter and aircraft noise to our residents. Although some progress was made on a good faith basis between operators and residents, the FAA was unable to come to a workable solution for all parties involved. This is partly due to the fact that many helicopter flights go unrecorded so it is difficult to grasp the scope of the issue. The new Webtrak reporting system will allow residents to log specific noise complaints which will in turn provide the FAA the information it needs to more effectively address this issue going forward.

Webtrak
Launched in February 2015, WebTrak allows the user to watch the movement of flights and air traffic patterns in the vicinity of Torrance Airport.  The user will also be able to view noise readings generated by flights as they register on the various noise monitors and complaints may be submitted directly into the system.   Real time data is viewed in the Live Mode, and is delayed by approximately 20 minutes for aviation security and data processing.  You can also view historical data in the Replay Mode for up to 90 days.

To file a noise complaint, please contact the Los Angeles Helicopter Noise Initiative Complaint System at (424) 348-4354 or the City of Torrance Noise Abatement Office at (310) 784-7950.
