Wondering about how airport flight patterns might impact a home you are considering? Flight Tracker interactive map of the Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) gives the flight paths of airplanes flying overhead for a particular Twin Cities location and time frame. Not only can you enter an address and timeframe to get static flight paths, you can also see opt to see flights streaming on the map as airplanes in near real time.
Straight path arrivals and departures have the most noise impact, obviously the closer to the airport the bigger the impact.
