Summer Status Update

In May, the DC Fair Skies Coalition filed a Reply Brief with the Court of Appeals criticizing the FAA over the aircraft noise created by their new northern departure flight path from Reagan National. In June, delegates on the Reagan National Community Working Group sent a memorandum to the FAA and MWAA criticizing the FAA's reliance on maximizing time over water as the goal of flight path changes. Now, the DC Fair Skies Coalition is waiting for the Court of Appeals to schedule oral arguments this fall. A decision is also pending from the same Court of Appeals in a similar case from Phoenix, Arizona that was argued in March.

This website will continue to be updated as the Coalition's case progresses in the months ahead.
