Via Flight Club, O’Hare Airport has a department to deal with airport noise complaints, which were at an all time high in January, with 39,000 complaints being filed:
The Chicago Department of Aviation’s Airport Noise Management System recently revealed that noise complaints near the international airport are at an all time high. An official report cites that 63 percent of the 39,000 complaints in January came from just six addresses.
That’s right, nearly 25,000 of those complaints (in a single month!!!) came from six addresses:
That’s 24,987 complaints from just six addresses and 11,155 complaints from one address in the period of one month is quite amazing. That’s roughly 360 complaints per day on average including weekends.
There are two official ways to submit a complaint including by telephone and online. The online form has six required fields to submit a complaint and takes approximately 1 minute to complete, but maybe longer if optional fields are filled in. That would equal six hours of complaint filing per day assuming no breaks were taken. I’m not sure how well it pays, but that seems like terrible full time employment. It can only be assumed that this is the work of a highly deranged individually or a repurposed spam bot.
