Everyone Complains About Jet Noise, But Nobody Does Anything About It

New, 11 comments

ABC7 reports that Los Angeles World Airports has introduced a new way for people living near its airports to complain about the noise. WebTrak gives neighbors of LAX, Ontario International, and Van Nuys airports an online noise complaint form for area residents to identify loud (especially loud?) airplanes. Well, what else can you do? Santa Monica's attempt to ban certain noisy types of planes at its airport was shot down by the FAA and the National Business Aviation Administration has come out against a similar ban proposed by Van Nuys Airport. Burbank's Bob Hope Airport has dedicated several years and millions of dollars to a curfew proposal that would prohibit takeoffs and landings between 10 pm and 6:59 am. They submitted new documentation in May and are still waiting for the FAA to weigh in. To top it all off, no one wants anyone else's bans to go through because it will mean more traffic (and more noise) at their airports. [ABC7]
