Airport Noise Programs

Update on the Port's COVID-19 response Learn more.

Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) offers one of the most comprehensive aircraft noise reduction programs in the nation. The airport's Noise Programs Office works closely with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the airlines and the local communities to monitor existing noise programs and develop new ways of reducing airport and aircraft noise. The office has two primary focuses: sound insulation programs and noise abatement programs.

In this video, Jim Hileman, Chief Scientific and Technical Advisor for the FAA Office of Environment and Energy talks about the research and innovation of noise reduction and sustainable aviation fuels at the SEA.
