REPORT ON EFFECTS OF AIRCRAFT OVERFLIGHTS ON THE NATIONAL PARK SYSTEM. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY REPORT TO CONGRESS. APPENDICES

The study identifies the problems associated with aircraft flights over units of the National Park System, and distinguishes between the impacts caused by sightseeing aircraft, military aircraft, commercial aviation, and other forms of aviation which affect these units. The study also identifies those National Park System units in which the most serious adverse impacts from aircraft overflights exist, and pursuant to the Overflights Act, report particular overflight problems at five units of the system. The report also includes recommendations from the National Park Service to provide for substantial restoration of the natural quiet and experience for Grand Canyon National Park.
