*Note regarding noise levels - The noise levels shown on the VOLANS flight track viewer are given in the Leq (equivalent sound level) noise metric, while JWA noise regulations use the SENEL (Single Event Noise Exposure Level) noise metric. Because of this, noise levels on the VOLANS flight track viewer cannot be used to assess compliance with JWA noise regulations. The Access and Noise office can provide SENEL levels – phone: 949-252-5185.
