YVR Noise Management Plan

The 2014-2018 YVR Noise Management Plan details the core elements of the YVR Aeronautical Noise Management Program and initiatives that will shape and guide noise management efforts over the next five years.

A total of 10 initiatives are identified for the 2014-2018 YVR Noise Management Plan. These initiatives were identified in consultation with the YVR Aeronautical Noise Management Committee, from information gathered through a community web survey, and through an extensive analysis of noise complaints received by the Airport Authority.

YVR Web Tracking Tool

YVR released an online web tracking tool that allows members of the public to see real-time and historical flight and noise data collected by the Airport Authority's aircraft noise monitoring and tracking system. The WebTrack for YVR tool can be accessed through the Noise Management section of the YVR website.
