Curious to see if there are particular areas more affected by jet/military plane noise than others?

The areas closer to where the planes land and take off will have more noise. We hear the commercial planes more than the military ones. We generally enjoy it. It is rarely loud enough to disrupt what we are doing, though we run outside occasionally to have a look at the plane

It is pretty common to hear military activity if you live in Fountain/Security/Widefield/Stratton Meadows/Broadmoor - i.e. areas surrounding Fort Carson. We even hear their Reveille, Taps, etc. and I don't know what it is technically called but their 'bombing' or ordnance/range practices - sometimes those will shake windows. Planes aren't as big a deal comparatively. Loud jet noise is occasional, extending pretty much everywhere at times from around Peterson Field.

It will pick up as the recently arrived CAB continues to stand up. A few battalion-sized air assault missions should rattle some windows as you get 60-70 helicopters in the air at once.

Get a Aerial Loudspeaker System in there as well to play some Wagner. That would be fun.

To most people that is the "Sound of Freedom".

I have small kids that would like to watch the activity during the day, but would definitely mess us up at bedtime if exercises were held at night. Is that an issue?

Near Ft. Carson it has been non stop all night for the past two nights. Explosion sounds that will keep you up. It woke my kids up around 3 am. Not the best place to live if you are a light sleeper. lol

I've lived around it my whole life so I can tune it out and usually sleep through it if need be.

We're looking at homes in the North Gate area, and when I posted to facebook about this great house overlooking the USAFA, I got all sorts of comments about football noise, game traffic, event traffic, etc. The house we were looking at was 3 miles from the stadium, as the crow flies, so I'm not really worried about that. But what about traffic and such?

These are mostly people from other parts of the country, so I'm not *too* worried, but thought I'd ask around here.

(At our old house in Maryland, the blasts from Dahlgren and the EOD tech center continually rattled our windows, and I didn't even notice after the first summer.)
