Will be relocating to GSO soon with family (2 kids) and want to find a great family neighborhood with good public schools. Anyone live in/around the Cardinal area and can report on airport noise? How are the home sales around there lately?
Thanks

I recently moved into the area and haven't noticed any issues with noise from the airport.

The FedEx hub at the airport just opened last year, but hasn't really ramped up operations yet because of the recession. The hub is projected to have 60-70 flights a night when it becomes fully operational.

But that doesn't mean that it will be noisy. It all depends on the flight approach. Something to at least ask your realtor.

Just moved from Greensboro--everyone we knew in the Cardinal moved out over the last couple of years. They considered themselves lucky if they sold to someone from out of town who didn't know about the coming FedX flights. YMMV.

I have lived in The Cardinal over 16 years. What a beautiful, peaceful, family-friendly neighborhood! We are grateful that we did not sale our home during the FedEx hype. Our home continues to increase in value.There is very little noise from the airport, and that is usually in the middle of the night when we are asleep. We have mature trees, an awesome golf course, luxury homes and our own lake with walking trail. Families here absolutely love The Cardinal!

Why didn't those good people think about that BEFORE they located there with an airport that has been in operation for over 30 years?

This is always the problem ... people move into areas that are not really suitable for high density residential development and after they do then they complain. FedEx has nothing to do with it at all.

Actually the airport saw a net loss of passengers in 20012, 13 and 14 to date.

The airport also provides over $1 billion dollars into the local communities as well as over 4,000 jobs ... alll at ZERO cost to the local taxpayer or property owner.

It is unfortunate that folks like 2GirlsR2good don't see the true value of such a facility and the overall benefit it brings to a community. I am originally from Alaska and saw the same thing happen to our airport where we had a 12,000' runway and attracted 747's going to Europe. Over the years the residential intrusion got within a mile of the runways and all they do now is ***** about the noise. You can only do noise abatement to a certain degree but airplanes do need to land and take off. The airports do a pretty decent job at noise abatement with approach and departure strategies.

Moved to the Cardinal area two years ago and at least for me, there is "Zero" airport noise.
We love the area, Sadly will have to sell and move next year due to another relocation from Work.

Will recommend the area to anyone who wants to raise a family in a secure beautiful neighborhood.

Default Correction: We did not "sell" (verb). Sale is the noun.
