Voice your anger and frustration at FAA’s rejection of all noise mitigation recommendations on Oct 17th!
Hello All Neighbours!
We have received the highly anticipated FAA response to the Oakland Airport Noise Forum Noise Mitigation Proposal that was submitted on March 2017 – it’s a major disappointment! NONE of the 36 Noise Forum recommendations, proposed by a group of aviation experts, were supported!
Despite the fact that the FAA has repeatedly stated that they would seriously undertake consideration of all possible and feasible alternatives to the current NextGen flight paths, they rejected nearly all of our recommendations and didn’t offer any alternatives or counter proposals. This is unacceptable!
Their response included:
Rejection of both proposed HUSSH (night time departures as well as OAK9 and CANDEL (day time departures flight path alternatives, despite the fact that our alternatives comply with NextGen goals of safety and efficiency, and the current flight path does not!
No alteration or modification of any east bound SFO departures.
Rejection of Congresswoman Barbara Lee’s specific request to meet and establish an effective framework to deal with the noise issues.
