HEARTFELT THANKS TO ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR WRITTEN COMMENTS AND OVERWHELMING SHOW OF SUPPORT!
We appreciate the Task Force's work over the past 10 months. Here is a summary of some of the recommendations that passed and will be sent to the FAA:
Most important is to immediately restore Burbank Airport's Runway 15 departure flight tracks to 2007 conditions.
Reject Burbank Airport's Proposed Procedures, SLAPP TWO and OROSZ THREE, that our community overwhelmingly opposed.
Remove Van Nuys Airport's waypoint PPRRY from all procedures.
Other recommendations include: higher climb gradients so the jets can ascend faster; greater dispersion; and runway rotation encouraging departures to the east.
Long-term recommendations include studies re noise and curfews.
