Why do planes fly over my house?

Monday September 23 2019

The airspace over the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex is very congested, with over a dozen airports close to each other. The FAA establishes air traffic patterns throughout the metroplex, to safely separate aircraft, both horizontally and vertically. Aircraft flying over the community may often be associated with DFW (one of the busiest airports in the country), but could also be flying to or from, Dallas Love Field or one of the numerous smaller general aviation-focused airports. Military jet and turboprop aircraft are also very prevalent in the sky above the metroplex in association with Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth. Also Bell, with its headquarters and primary manufacturing and assembly plant located in Fort Worth, test flies dozens of new civilian and military helicopters daily.
