I already live really close to the path of incoming flights to CVG but my new house will be almost directly under the flight path...I could see my lot when we flew into CVG 2 weeks ago, which was pretty cool. I don't mind airplane noise, and could spend all afternoon sitting on the deck, watching the birds overhead.

The only really big planes I see are Polar Cargo and Atlas Air 747s, wish we had some more big birds coming in to the "International Airport" that only has a few international destinations, mainly to the Caribbean.

My Mother had a friend who lived across the street from a big Airport.

The Airport paid her to mount a red light on the roof of her home.
Kind of funny if you think about it.

You're going to get a lot of exhaust soot landing on your house. If you have any outdoor window awnings, they're going to get a black carbon buildup on them. I've seen it happen.

Did you mother have a lot of young men knocking on her door?

The Desert View Tower in east San Diego makes some revenue from having a tower located on their property.

A lot of airport authorities have invested in noise reduction plans for homes like insulation and other soundproofing techniques. The stuff they use in cars nowadays is just a thin blanket but really blocks sound.

Twenty years ago airport noise was a big issue. Modern jets have new technologies that help reduce noise. As you mentioned, it will be certain aircraft like 747 cargo or a 757 that will be really noticeable.

Congrats and good luck on your new home.

Actually I am in one of the flight circles near JBLM so it gets busy when pilots and crews need their hours. Last Tuesday I witnessed parachute training as I was headed south. Dropping the paratroopers back onto the runway. Impressive sight. Hearing one of the Globemasters circle around is impressive as well.

Is there much of a discount in property value, building under a flight path? I don't think I would like it, but our roosters went off at 5am this morning so its not exactly silent at my place either!

I live 100 miles south of Chicago's airports and out in the country. Before 9/11 they use to fly my way and split east and west so they both went off the sides of the house. Every 10 minutes back in the day during most of the daylight hours. Quite aggravating if you wanted the peace and quite of the country.

Since 9/11 they changed the flight paths and there is very little traffic now.

The west side of Cincinnati is very hilly, and there is very little buildable land on that side of town that hasn't already been developed unless you go all the way west to Harrison OH. Short version is, west side in general is less costly than east side, and wide swaths of the west and northwest parts of Hamilton County have lots of air traffic overhead, and have for decades.

To be really frank, the medical helicopters in and out of Mercy West Hospital are a lot louder and more intrusive than the commercial planes.

When ILN was really active, we would see a bunch of DC-8s, which I really liked.
Not sure how far off it is, but certainly no more than thirty miles as the crow, or Douglas, flies.
I personally like seeing airplanes of all sorts and liked it when our local GA airport was far more active years ago than it is these days.

I would think you'd see some Kalitta Air 747s as well there

There were several Kalitta birds on the ground last time we taxied by, but I rarely see them in the air for some reason.

Be thankful that CVG while growing fast is still somewhat less busy than say LAX or DFW or a number of airports with much higher traffic. Even SeaTac where we fly out of runs about 45 million passengers annually and over 400,000 aircraft movements too.

It does sound like CVG would be a nicer airport to be in. SeaTac is a hodge podge of add-ons and remodels. Their international terminal is just now starting to getting redone. The old 70ís false ceiling and horrible gate accommodations pale to many other airports Iíve been through.

Sadly, most US airports are pretty much in the same boat. Having been to several newer airports overseas, itís amazing how far behind we are in this respect.
