In an effort to be a good neighbor, the Hillsborough County Aviation Authority has a noise office.

- Monitoring initial turbojet departure headings.
- Developing noise abatement flight paths for propeller aircraft for Runway 1L and 1R departures.
- Limiting base legs for Runway 1L arrivals north of Mac Dill Air Force Base.
