Hey y'all, I have an in-law that lives near Bowman Field (LOU) in Louisville. She is complaining about low-flying jets—she doesn't mind prop planes—that she claims fly directly over the house while arriving and departing. Usually, this is a "tough luck" situation being that the airport is a known thing and they bought the house with the knowledge that there was an airport there. However there's a catch. Apparently the airport paid her neighbors (not sure which ones exactly) as much as $30k/ea for "air rights to fly over their properties." Now I'm sure she's misunderstanding what exactly was being purchased, since I don't think I have any rights to the air over my property beyond, perhaps, the tops of my trees, but that's beside the point. She wants to know why she wasn't paid, why they're flying over her house, and how she can either get paid or stop the flights. I'm not sure how directly over her house they're flying, given that her house is at least 450ft off the extended centerline of runway 06 at Bowman. Looking at it as a pilot, I don't see how anyone would fly over her house, let alone regularly. Simultaneously, I don't see how she'd get paid anything given how far she is from the centerline. She's in the first row of houses outside the fence. I don't want this to turn into an issue for the airport, nor do I want her continually unhappy. She's a rational person, so if I could just point to a guideline, map, plan, schematic, etc that showed where and how airports decide to pay for "air rights" that would suffice. She asked me during a family get-together if "the pilots are personally liable if they fly over my house." Anyone have any help on this? I've contacted the ASN volunteer for Louisville Int'l since Bowman doesn't have one. Many thanks. tl;dr: In-law is complaining about not being paid for "air rights" for a/c to fly over her house. She's 450' off the runway centerline at Bowman Field (LOU). She wants to either be paid, or stop the flights. What are air rights, and how can I defuse this? Anyone have info on what "air rights" are and why she might not have been paid?
