Let's clean up our skies.

 

WHAT DO we want the faa to do?

  • Suspend the new LAZIR flight route over our communities and reinstate the prior north bound departure path.

  • Include noise and emissions as critical design inputs for arrival and departures routes.

  • Distribute noise equitably over populated areas when it cannot be eliminated.

  • Eliminate or restrict aircraft operations between 10:00 PM and 7:00 AM.

  • Adopt more meaningful noise assessment methods on the ground.

  • Enforce arrival approaches that keep aircraft strictly over the river at all times and in any weather.

What do we want Washington, D.C. to do?

  • Pursue aircraft noise mitigation at National Airport.

  • Provide technical support to the DC Representatives to the Community Working Group working with the airport to address aircraft noise over DC.
