Starting September 11th, anyone with an Internet connection that is interested in learning more about aircraft they hear flying overhead can monitor and track the airspace above their homes and businesses using a new online tool called Webtrak.
With Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (BBTCA) aircraft colour-coded in blue, Webtrak provides near-real time and historical information on flight paths, aircraft types and noise levels related to all flights operating within a 30-nautical-mile radius of BBTCA. The system is free to use, accessible from computer, tablet or smartphone, and is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week here.
Webtrak complements the suite of existing noise management tools the Toronto Port Authority (TPA) has in place to share information and help monitor, investigate and respond to noise complaints submitted by the community.
The TPA's 2013 Noise Management Report, which reports on all complaints submitted to the Noise Management Office over the past year, is also now available here.
As the operator of an airport located near a thriving urban community, the TPA is committed to mitigating and reducing the effects of noise from our airport's operations.
