There are three meetings scheduled – the nearest location for us is at Vaughn College, 86-01 23rd Avenue, East Elmhurst, NY 11369. This opposite LaGuardia Airport.
If you, or your neighbors are impacted by the increased helicopter traffic and noise in our community, year round and especially during Memorial Day to Labor Day – here is your chance to be heard and make a difference. Please pass this along to your friends and neighbors.
Email: WELOVEWHTESTONE2@gmail.com if you will attend. If we have enough people to fill a bus, we will get one. In the subject line put: FAA PUBLIC MEETING.
I can not stress the importance of your involvement if you are impacted. This was passed both both houses of Congress and signed by the President… our chance to make a true change.
For those that can not make it.. send in your comments, either on line or by mail… we will get everyone some points to the questions you need to answer this weekend.
There is also a comment period open for your remarks and input. You can provide your comments here. All comments must be received by January 2, 2019.
In particular, try and response to the following questions:
1. Did implementation of the Rule result in more or less helicopter noise in your community compared to levels you experienced prior to implementation of the Rule?
2. How and when do helicopter operators deviate from the Rule?
3. Are there alternative or supplemental routes that you believe will reduce the noise impacts without jeopardizing the safe operation of aircraft?
4. Should the Rule be extended, modified, or allowed to expire in 2020? Comment with your thoughts here
