Community Relations

This section provides information on programs and services the Airport offers to the Orange County community.

Access & Noise

The Access & Noise section gives insight into the Access Plan and the provisions of the Settlement Agreement. In order to monitor and enforce the Settlement Agreement restrictions, the Access and Noise Office utilizes a state-of the-art noise monitoring system that enables us to track each air carrier and general aviation operations. JWA's new flight tracking system ("VOLANS"), enables members of the community to log on to and track the flight data from the convenience of their home.
