The Federal Aviation Administration recently published its
Draft Noise Abatement Policy.
This Policy provides guidelines for most FAA actions related to
alleviating aviation noise. The last revision occurred in 1976, so it is
likely that we will be stuck with this new policy for 25 more years-- or
The current draft policy has a number of objectionable features and glaring ommissions (please see the table below). The time is now to make this policy stronger and ask the FAA to listen to citizens who live with aviation noise. We have until October 23, 2000 to make ourselves heard over the roar of airplanes!
