Let plane complaints fly

I think Chris Wood’s response to the airplane noise complaints is misleading (Tribune, Aug. 26).
It is not the number of flights that cause the noise issue, it is the flight path (i.e., flying over Guelph and very low).  I experience the same concern as Stephanie King, though I notice it most at 6:45 to 7 a.m.
But I am sorry, anyone with even a basic knowledge of airplanes can tell the difference between a plane headed east at 10,000 feet (to Toronto) versus a plane headed west (to Waterloo) at 3,000 feet. The loud noise comes from the latter.
So to try to say it is not air traffic to Waterloo, but instead Toronto, is avoiding the issue.
I did write to my councillors, and I wanted to acknowledge Maggie Laidlaw especially, who responded and forwarded my complaint to the airport.
I hope that adding complaints directly to the airport website will have a positive impact, but somehow I find myself being cynical.
There’s only one way to find out!
