The Fly Quiet Program designates four of O’Hare’s eight runways as “preferential” for use between 10PM and 7AM due to their flight paths going over non-residential land uses such as forest preserves and industrial areas.

Unfortunately, the City of Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) no longer use two of the four Fly Quiet Runways at night, Runways 4L22R and 14R/32L, and instead utilize Runway 10C/28C, which is the closest runway to residential land uses at O’Hare.
