None of it will do any good here. If you really want to effect change at the PHL airport due to airport noise, you'll need to talk to your local officials and congressmen.
And the airport was mostly likely there first before you moved into the area.

Sorry but I am going to have to disagree with this. The difference is pretty substantial in Ridley Park. 1500 feet is over a quarter mile and with jet engines every bit of distance helps. I can imagine it being even worse in Essington since the planes fly directly over there with 27R departures. I think the airport should reconsider this operation or at least turn the 27R departures out over the river after takeoff if possible instead of having them head almost immediately over land. Just my two cents.
