All those people who live next to or near airports and complain are idiots. The airport was there LONG before you were. It's not the airports fault you didn't properly investigate where your new home was. Even if they changed flight paths over the years, you still live in a major metro area. It's noise. Get over it.

utah79 - You are right on. However you are not in Utah anymore (I used to live there), this type of stuff happens all the time here. Welcome!

Since the airport pre-dates virtually all citizens in the area, this is really a mental / psychological problem of theirs. A pinecone is talking to me. An airport is bothering me and wasn't there before. Same thing.

Funny no one complains about the very loud Railroad switching trains nearby that work 24/7.

HOLMAN FIELD IS ONE AIRPORT THAT COULD SAVE A LOT OF MONEY BY CLOSING AND THE VERY BEST THING TO DO WITH THIS LAND IS GIVE THE SAIT PAUL SAINTS A HOME

@CRYSTAL7 Clearly, you don't have an aviation background. STP is the second busiest airport in the metro, it's a reliever airport for MAC, and it also has the second longest runway in the metro. This is a business airport and it's needed.
