Congressman Sherman Opposes FAA Plans to Change Flight Routes Over Valley Schools and Homes

Aug 22, 2018

Press Release

Sherman Oaks, CA – Today, Congressman Brad Sherman (D-Sherman Oaks) announced opposition to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)’s proposed changes to flight routes out of Hollywood Burbank Airport that would increase noise over many schools and residential neighborhoods in the San Fernando Valley.

“I am opposed to any changes that will increase aviation noise over schools and residential neighborhoods in the San Fernando Valley,” Sherman said. “We should be reducing the frequency and intensity of aviation noise on our community.”

Sherman sent a letter to the FAA requesting that they demonstrate why this change is necessary, complete the strongest possible environmental review, and allow for a public comment period before deciding on any changes.

“The FAA needs to hear from the Valley before they make it impossible for Valley residents to hear themselves think.”

“The FAA has informed me that they may make changes without first informing the public, and listening to public input. That is outrageous. The FAA appears to be moving full steam ahead without regard for either the opposition coming from the management of Hollywood Burbank Airport, or the community.”

“The Valley deserves a full environmental impact study comparing current flight routes to any other proposals under consideration, as well as a transparent public comment period allowing residents to express their concerns.”

Sherman has also invited the Acting FAA Administrator to the San Fernando Valley to meet with Members of Congress and community leaders to see the impact on the community directly and identify ways to reduce aviation noise in the San Fernando Valley.

Sherman has been a longtime advocate for additional measures to reduce aviation noise and improve air quality in the San Fernando Valley, including phasing out noisier aircraft and establishing mandatory flight curfews.
