FAA puts restrictions on national park jets

ESTES PARK — The Federal Aviation Administration is putting the brakes on jet noise for passenger planes passing over Rocky Mountain National Park.

This year, about 600 daily flights are expected through Rocky Mountain National Park’s airspace.

Flights approaching DIA from the west are now required to fly directly over Trail Ridge Road while gliding over the park without revving their engines to help the planes descend for landing at Denver International Airport.

According to the Fort Collins Coloradoan, the goal is to concentrate Trail Ridge Road’s auto noise and aircraft engine noise into one narrow corridor, allowing areas far away from Trail Ridge Road to be quieter.
