Boca residents to get noisebuster web site

 - October 3, 2007, 9:06 AM

Within the next six weeks homeowners surrounding Boca Raton (Fla.) Airport will be able to go to a Web site if they have an aircraft noise complaint. Developed by Megadata of Greenwich, Conn., AirportMonitor software displays aircraft in flight with a detailed overlay map of the streets neighboring the airport up to 96 mi away. Site visitors can see a readout of aircraft type, speed and altitude. For security reasons, there is a 10-min delay built into the display software. Additionally, Web visitors can wait an hour, then access an aircraft’s flight number or tail number, origin and destination. AirportMonitor is already in place at Los Angeles International Airport and Kentucky’s Louisville International Airport.
