I live in NE Portland and the Airplane traffic noise, is getting unbearable, because of the flight paths which are near my house. Also I am sick of the Portland cool, wet weather. I wonder if Medford has a lot of aircraft noise, because the airport is in such a small metro area. Is the jet noise bad in all parts of Medford. I believe that the weather is much warmer and drier then in the Portland area, but I dont know how the noise pollution is in the Medford area.

The airport noise in Medford is negligible. Really. Most of the planes are turboprops which are fairly quiet, the jets we do see are mostly the small CRJs. We do get bigger jets but it's rare.

Thanks for the information! That makes Medford seem like a good city for me.

It all depends on what area in Medford you live as to aircraft noise. The flight path for in coming flights take the aircraft mainly over the east Medford area. On some occasions they will approach from the north taking them over the Central Point area. All in all there is mininum noise.
