SFO's NEW Aircraft Noise Tracking Technology
San Francisco International Airport is excited to announce the arrival of SFO’s NEW Aircraft Noise Tracker. This tool gives you a near real-time look at actual flight tracks and noise levels around the airport. You can investigate aircraft-related noise events, validate your aircraft noise calculations, and submit community concerns directly to the SFO Aircraft Noise Abatement Office.

The tool enables you to:
  • Find Specific Aircraft Information including an aircraft’s type, altitude, origin/destination airport, and other flight identification. Locating yourself on the map offers additional location-specific information.
  • Determine Aircraft and Community Noise Levels from permanent and portable noise monitors deployed by the airport which are shown by the colored numbered dots. 
  • Replay and Investigate Historical Flights
  • Display Map Layers of major SFO arrival & departure routes and noise contours
  • Submit a Noise Report with SFO’s Aircraft Noise Abatement Office (Coming end of October)
  • See Flights in 3D. Our previous tracker, Volans, is still available within the application and allows you to see flights in a 3D view.

You can share your impressions of the new flight tracker tool by emailing
