Burbank Bob Hope Airport has launched WebTrak, a new online system that allows users of the Airport website to view flight movement, air traffic patterns and noise measurements within the Burbank region. In addition to providing flight and noise information, WebTrak will also be the primary site for anyone who wishes to file online aircraft noise inquiries with the Airport.
WebTrak visitors can use the system to determine individual aircraft type, origin and destination airports, altitude and flight identification for near real-time flights and flights up to 90 days in the past. Individual aircraft are color-coded based on arrival, departure and local airport of origin or destination. Users who wish to file an online noise inquiry do not have to identify an aircraft in order to do so, but may choose to include WebTrak data to provide additional information about the noise event.
WebTrak also shows the noise level measurements and locations of each of the 20 noise monitors around the Airport. Noise levels are shown and the system can distinguish aircraft movement noise from other community noise such as vehicle traffic or ambient noise.
First-time WebTrak users are encouraged to read through the “Start Here,” “Submit Inquiry,” “Legend” and “Help” tabs in the upper left-hand corner to better understand the system’s capabilities.
WebTrak is a product of Brüel & Kjaer, a multi-national firm specializing in sound and vibration. WebTrak replaces AirportMonitor, the Airport’s former online flight information system introduced in 2002, which is no longer supported by its provider.
