Broomfield, Colorado — Elizabeth Heidle says she moved to Broomfield in search of open space and tranquility.

The open space she says is plentiful, but the tranquility is hard to come by.

“It sounds like a landscaping lawn mower right next to you,” Heidle said of the constant flight of air over her house. “One day, within an hour. I counted 37 in. “

She lives 1.6 km (1 mile) from the adjacent Jefferson County Municipal Airport, Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport. The airport has been part of the region since 1960.

However, according to Heidle, flight school planes operating outside the airfield have increased flights to her neighborhood in recent years.

“In the month of April, more than 4,000 planes flew over my area,” Heidl says. “There are days when we have 30 or 40 people in less than an hour, but the intervals between planes are only one to one and a half minutes.”

Denver 7 asked Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport for comment, but did not respond.

However, the airport website contains a link to a forum called. Community noise round tableIs a working group for airport residents and business leaders to find solutions to noise from airplanes.

“As a public airport, we listen carefully to community concerns about flight operations, noise, and other topics,” the website said, and the roundtable was “an aircraft by a community. This is to ensure that operational change requests are not negative. It will unduly affect others. “
