Congressman Sherman Meets with FAA Officials to Discuss the Hollywood Burbank Airport and Airport Noise
Sherman Oaks, CA – Today, Congressman Brad Sherman (D-Sherman Oaks) met with officials from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to discuss proposed aviation procedures that will have a direct impact on communities in the San Fernando Valley.
Sherman met with Clark Desing, Director of the Western Service Center and Beth White in advance of this week’s two public workshops that will focus on changes to existing departure procedures from Hollywood Burbank Airport.
“We began to explore why all take-offs from Burbank Airport take-off southwest. Some planes might perhaps take-off to the south, southeast, or east,” said Sherman.
Sherman will attend tomorrow’s workshop scheduled for 5 p.m. at Pickwick Gardens – Rose Garden Room, 1001 Riverside Drive in Burbank, CA.
In August of this year, Congressman Sherman wrote to the FAA formally requesting that the agency fully engages with impacted communities in the San Fernando Valley to address concerns over aviation noise.
Congressman Sherman has long advocated for reducing aviation noise and improving air quality in the San Fernando Valley, including phasing out noisier aircraft and establishing mandatory flight curfews.
The two workshops will be held from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, November 7 and Thursday, November 8, 2018, at Pickwick Gardens – Rose Garden Room, 1001 Riverside Drive in Burbank, CA.
The FAA will take public comments through November 18, 2018. Information about the project, including how to comment, will be available on the FAA’s Burbank Community Involvement website at https:///www.faa.gov/nextgen/nextgen_near_you/community_involvement/bur
