Louisville, Ky. (WDRB) -- Some people living in Louisville's Scnhitzelburg neighborhood say all they want is some peace and quiet.
They say the noisy planes disrupt them every hour of every day. The FAA is offering help but, the problem is, not everyone can get it.
The solution to the problem is a program called Quieter Homes. It allows houses to get new insulation, new windows and new doors for free. But some residents whose houses don't qualify and they aren't happy.
The noise is what some residents in the Scnhitzelburg neighborhood say is keeping them awake at night.
"It's intense and it's over 90 decibels of noise. It's unbelievable," said Nydia Regnier, lives in the Schnitzelburg Neighborhood.
What makes it worse, Nydia says, is the FAA has determined only certain homes in the area qualify for free sound insulation. Her home isn't one of them.
"It's incredibly frustrating and has been frustrating for three years. For some folks in my neighborhood, for over a decade," said Regnier.
One gentleman has live in his home for 30 years. He says the worst time is midnight to 3 a.m.
"They come every couple minutes an hour at a time.Then they'll have a break for a little bit and then they'll keep coming. We've replaced our windows but you can still hear it real loud in the house," said Dan McMahon, lives in the Schnitzelburg Neighborhood.
McMahon's house isn't eligible for the Quieter Homes program either and says the planes are much louder than they used to be.
Residents say they don't want to stop the air traffic, they just want some relief from the noise.
"I have neighbors who work for UPS and the airport. We're not trying to shut anybody down or put anyone out of business. We just want to be able to have the luxury of sleeping at night like other Louisvillians get to enjoy," said Regnier.
Airport officials were unable to talk on camera but over the phone they said they understand the frustration of these residents and they're doing everything they can to help.
