Aircraft Noise

Aircraft Noise Information

South Saint Paul Municipal Airport – Fleming Field recognizes the importance of being a responsible neighbor, and is committed to managing the impact of aircraft operations on local residents. We would like to be contacted directly with any airport related complaints.

Airport Hotline

Residents who would like to contact us about atypical noise events can contact us at (651) 554-3350. The airport has no regulatory jurisdiction over aircraft in flight and does not control flight paths, but maintains records of complaints, investigates atypical noise events and encourages the pilot community to fly friendly over the area.
If you choose to call us, please indicate whether you would like a return phone call and provide as much detail about the nature of the event and aircraft as possible. Aircraft information may include: jet or propeller driven, number of engines and mounting location on aircraft, straight or swept wing, high or low wing, fixed or retractable landing gear, color(s) and paint scheme and the aircraft registration or “N” number. Remember, if you do not leave a number we cannot call you back.

Before Calling

Before calling us, please know that 14 CFR Part 19.119 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs) permits aircraft to fly at altitudes that some residents believe to be a nuisance or unsafe. In fact, there is no minimum altitude required during the takeoff and landing phases of flight.

Only the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has regulatory jurisdiction over aircraft in flight. If you believe an aircraft is violating FARs, contact the FAA’s Minneapolis – St. Paul Flight Standards District Office at (612) 253-4400 with the registration number (located on the tail section) and description of the aircraft.
