Hi...My family and I have lived in ferndale for eight years and we have very little plane noise and hardley ever have one fly past/over the neighborhood unless it was so high you think it,s a star.I do think it,s a nice neighborhood and there are many children and lots of people walking and riding there bikes. The only downfall for me is there are not to many 1+acre lot's.

Well, in regards to the airplanes, I think pretty much everywhere around this area you are going to have to deal with planes. Some areas are of course worse then others. I think a good question is why you wantt o live in Glen Burnie? Severn, Odenton, Severna PArk, Millersville are all in the same vinicity as Glen Burnie and are much better places to live. Less crime, better schools, less congestion. Good luck!

The only area of Glen Burnie that I know of that is not in the direct flight path of BWI is adjacent to Ritchie Hwy. It is difficult to know exactly where the planes don't fly because the flight paths change on a weather based basis. You may be able to do a search on the Thurgood Marshall Baltimore Washington International Airport website to get more specific information. Best wishes. Sam

There is not one set flight path for BWI. We just helped a couple move to the Ferndale area and even though they are right off to the side of the airport, the runways face the other direction so they don't get planes flying overhead. There are many nice homes available in that area, from well priced older homes to newer homes in established neighborhoods. Much of Glen Burnie is going to be in a flight path at one time or another based on the proximity to the airport. If I were planing on moving and this were important to me, I would look for homes or neighborhoods that I like. Then I'd visit on a nice weekend when people are out doing yardwork and chat with them about the area and plane noise. I'd speak with several people. I used to live in Woodside West, off Quarterfield Road and didn't notice the plane noise much, sometimes I couldn't hear for a few seconds if I was on the phone, but I didn't think it was a big deal. Other people are much more bothered by plane noise. It's really an individual thing so if you are really bothered by it, you'll want to speak with several neighbors to get a concensus and visit the area on different days at different times. You'll want to make sure this will work for you before making such a big investment in an area!

Are you looking for a townhome or single family? That would be the best place to start. Then I would suggest visiting the neighborhoods that have the homes that fit your needs. I would suggest talking to the neighbors and touring the neighborhood at different times of the day. The flight paths can change at given times. I would be happy to help you further,just contact me.
