Trollen: Eventually Luke AFB noise will be unacceptable


Lately, our airspace over Sun City and Youngtown has been noisier from increased Luke Air Force Base traffic.

Luke is supposed to receive more aircraft and increase their training of pilots, including foreign pilots. The Luke website has a noise map showing a noise limit of 65 decibels in our airspace, which obviously is not being followed all the time.

As time passes, if Luke does not use 65 decibel takeoffs, I would predict that the increased “Sound of Freedom” will not be accepted.
