AIRPORT TASK FORCE TO ADDRESS JET REROUTING
Task Force Meeting 5
Jan. 15, 6:30 p.m-9:30 pm.
Meetings set for group to talk about regional airport noise complaint
The dates for upcoming meetings of the task force to address south San Fernando Valley aircraft noise complaints from planes departing Hollywood Burbank and Van Nuys airports were released last week. Thus far, the task force — comprised of a group of representatives from elected city officials and federal representatives — of residents from Studio City and Sherman Oaks, Burbank, Glendale and Pasadena have set agendas and heard from grassroots groups organizing around the issue.
Flights coming out of Burbank have historically flown south and made westward
turns over the 101 freeway toward their destination. But a report compiled by consulting firm Landrum & Brown last year determined that departing flight paths under the FAA GPS modernization called Next-Gen Metroplex had shifted routes southward toward the Santa Monica Mountains which has scores of homeowners up in arms.
Hol1ywood Burbank Airport has denied the implementation of changes to flight routes, instead suggesting that flight paths have changed due to weather shifts and increased traffic and passenger loads.
All the meetings will be held at the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport.
