History

The DC Fair Skies Coalition is a group of citizen associations in the Washington, DC area who are working to make sure we all have a say on issues that impact airplane noise, air pollution, and flight safety in our neighborhoods. Our goal is to require the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the federal agency that operates Ronald Reagan National Airport (DCA) to adopt an approach to aircraft flight management that balances the needs of the traveling airlines, the public, and DC area residents. Our objective is a plan that minimizes aircraft noise in residential neighborhoods to the maximum extent feasible, especially at night, in a safe and environmentally sound manner.
