Detroit Metropolitan Airport, owned and operated by the Wayne County Airport Authority, is the unit of government which receives air noise complaints.
An airport Master Plan is a comprehensive study that identifies near-, medium-, and long-term plans for airport development. A Master Plan Update is currently under way and will provide the Wayne County Airport Authority and its stakeholders with a comprehensive, organized, and rational plan for developing airport facilities over the next 20-years. This Plan will allow the Authority to efficiently and effectively meet the demands for commercial passenger and air cargo service, as well as other aviation-related needs. Development of the Master Plan Update will include input from stakeholders who have an interest in the Airport’s future, such as: Airport users, community groups, local businesses, government agencies, and the general public.

Noise complaints are evaluated to identify the cause of the noise event and determine if an aircraft is operating outside the noise plan parameters. Noise complaints are not necessarily reflective of the severity of the noise, but can be useful to the Airport in identifying problems and issues that are important to the various communities surrounding the Airport.
