About Us  Californians for Quiet Skies was founded in 2011 to combat increasing commercial aircraft noise over Portola Valley.  We work with Quiet Skies Mid-Peninsula and groups further afield to advocate reductions in aircraft waste noise in the FAA NorCal Metroplex.  Read our principles in our letter of March 3, 2016, to Congressional Representatives Eshoo and Farr.
Learn More
Californians for Quiet Skies is part of the Quiet Skies Mid-Peninsula umbrella group. This group is building a web site that will centralize information about aircraft noise abatement.  In the meantime, you can find useful historical presentations and FAA documents on the web sites of our sister organizations in Palo Alto (Sky Posse Palo Alto), Los Altos Hills (Quiet Skies Los Altos Hills), Los Altos (Sky Posse Los Altos), and Woodside (Quiet Skies Woodside).

How To Complain 
Individual complaints about aircraft noise pollution matter because SFO publishes complaint numbers monthly. One complaint from 100 people carries much more weight than 100 complaints from one person.

Visit stop.jetnoise.net to complain to SFO about loud aircraft.  The site is very easy to use.  It reports the commercial aircraft's model, flight number, and altitude at your location.  A Google or Facebook account is required.

Sign our Change.org Petition to request that our elected officials take action to reduce aircraft noise.

Visit our pages on How To Take Action  and contact our elected officials, including City, County, State, and Federal representatives.
