Protecting Natural Quiet in the Grand Canyon

The ability to experience Natural Quiet - the complete absence of manmade sound - is becoming harder to find in Grand Canyon due to rapid and unrestricted growth of air tour operations.

A National Park Service Study concluded that, unless action is taken, by the year 2010 only a small fraction of Grand Canyon’s vast expanse will be free of the drone of aircraft engines.

The NPS and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), in a joint rulemaking process, held public hearings and accepted written comments to provide input.
