Metropolitan Airport Commission (MAC): Stop Building an Airplane Freeway Over Our Neighborhoods

The FAA wants to install Performance-Based Navigation (PBN) technology, which will redirect and increase the number of flights over our neighborhoods. This technology will unfairly burden us with more noise and more carbon dioxide emissions, leading to lower quality of health and lower property values.

The FAA needs approval from the Metropolitan Airport Commission (MAC) to move forward with the plan, but they have NOT provided enough time or information for the public to completely understand the impact of these changes.

We urge the MAC to vote against PBN technology at the November 19, 2012 meeting, delaying launch of the PBN technology until 2014 so the public has more time to adequately evaluate the proposed changes to our neighborhoods.

 Stop the MSP flight path over our neighborhood.
