STOP JET NOISE OVER STUDIO CITY, SHERMAN OAKS, ENCINO

The FAA and BURBANK Airport are on the verge of changing the flight paths from Burbank.

ALL DAILY DEPARTURES (now 170+) will be required to fly over hillside neighborhoods, schools and parks from Studio City, west through Sherman Oaks, to Encino.

Jets will fly LOUD and LOW over our communities, valuable open space and wildlife habitat, due to new GPS points that guide jets in a concentrated flight path.

WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT! PLEASE SIGN TODAY!

We object to these new flight paths, OROSZ 3 and SLAPP 2, and to waypoints that will guarantee disruption to our communities and burden us with constant noise and a significant air quality health hazard.

We object to flight paths that expose residents and visitors -- our school children, student athletes, and people seeking recreation in the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains Recreation Area – to constant jet noise and pollution.

We object to a flight path over mountainous terrain at higher elevations. Altitude minimums are far too low over terrain and jets gaining altitude are too low and too loud. Unstudied canyon acoustics create a long echo effect of 90 seconds or more.

We object to the lack of environmental impact studies. Where are the noise and air quality studies that support FAA’s decision to locate waypoints at 1700 to 3200 feet AGL (above ground level) over thousands of children attending area schools?

We object to jets consistently flying well below the “mixing level,” where particulate pollutants fall to the ground. Negative health effects of breathing particulates are well documented – and are most dangerous for children, who are “sensitive receptors,” along with the ill and elderly. Children play outside and engage in sports, further increasing their susceptibility. 

We object to the disruption of our schools. Children have difficulty learning in a noisy environment. The schools in your proposed path were built in quiet, hillside environments and have inadequate soundproofing. 

We object to the disruption and degradation of noise sensitive, 4-F designated, public recreation and park land, the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. This area is home to much of our dwindling, Los Angeles wildlife and wildlife habitat.

We object to the FAA’s and Burbank Airport’s failure to provide outreach on these extremely significant and intrusive new procedures. No notification or engagement. 

We object to FAA’s failure to specify flight paths. Faulty online procedure materials misrepresent geographical location of path and waypoints. FAA must, in the interest of transparency, provide corrected maps and restart the comment period.

FAA must eliminate the waypoints or move them north over the natural “noise corridor” of the 101 freeway.
