Arizona Air National Guard See: http://www.flytucson.com/tucson-airport-authority/about-taa/noise-and-environment-programs/noise/  

One of the noisiest aircraft using TIA is the Arizona Air National Guard F-16 Fighter. The Air National Guard (ANG) has been operating out of TIA since 1956. Today, the TIA ANG base is home to one of the world's top two F-16 training squadrons.

In August 1994 the Tucson Airport Authority and the Arizona Air National Guard signed a "letter of agreement" which included:

  • Restricting the total annual number of ANG operations at TIA
  • Limiting the use of afterburners - which are extremely noisy - to no more than 10% of annual F-16 takeoffs.
  • Restricting F-16 afterburner usage to southeast takeoffs, over vacant land, whenever possible.
  • Eliminating ANG flight training or engine runups between 10:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m.

FEDERAL AVIATION AUTHORITY
The FAA does not have the authority to regulate the operations of military aircraft. If you live near a military installation, you should try contacting their noise office or community relations department for more information on their operations in your community. Additionally, you may contact the Department of Defense Noise Working Group on their website by email to get more information about the type of noise you may be experiencing. HOWEVER -- the FAA does keep a log of complaints and it does count.   Safety Noise Issues can be reported at the Flight Standards District Office at 480-419-011.  There are also online complaint forms at faa.gov
