[The following was sent to me for posting]

RE: AIRPLANES FLIGHTS OVER PROSPECT AVENUE INTO TETERBORO AIRPORT

A meeting has been scheduled where residents can express their concerns to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) about the numerous flights over our area.  Residents are primarily concerned about the safety of such flights over this densely populated neighborhood, as well as the noise and pollution. More recently, there have been few flights because of temperature, season, etc., but you only have to remember what it was like last summer.
The meeting is set for Wednesday, April 26, at 7:00 PM, 90 Moonachie Avenue (not Street), Airport Administration Building, Teterboro, in the conference room.  Parking is available at the site. 

The Hackensack Condo/Co-op Advisory Board has been in contact with various government agencies to have planes rerouted. This request for your attendance is being made to residents of all buildings in the area through the Hackensack Condo/Co-op Advisory Board. Only with a large turnout can we hope to garner the needed attention to have the FAA reconsider their actions.

The FAA had conducted a trial where planes would be sent over Route 17, rather than over our area.  However, at the completion of the trial period, they found there was not sufficient usage to justify it becoming permanent.  In the opinion of the Hackensack Condo/Co-op Advisory Board, the test should have ensured that sufficient traffic flew over Route 17, so that a proper evaluation could have been made.

PLEASE GATHER YOUR FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS AND ATTEND THIS MEETING.

This meeting is being held by TANAAC (Teterboro Noise Abatement Advisory Committee).

The Record and Hackensack Daily Voice both reported on Wednesday night's City Hall meeting with FAA and Teterboro Airport officials, who explained why the "quieter" flight path for landing aircraft was abandoned last October: It was too much work for pilots.

Letter: Current Teterboro Airport flight path still dangerous

A recent article about the noise, pollution and public safety issues involving Teterboro Airport omitted some important facts. Although the story accurately stated that a large crowd of area residents attended a recent Federal Aviation Administration hearing in Hackensack, it failed to hold FAA officials accountable for scrapping the trial of a much better and safer alternative flight path than the current system in place.

The story left many readers believing that the alternative path had been given a fair trial by the FAA. This is completely false. Many residents believe the exact opposite that it was set up to fail. Heres why.

The vast majority of the jets that use Teterboro land with the help of a Flight Management System that guides them along the current flight path following a charted course. But pilots using the new alternative flight path had a much more difficult challenge. They couldnt use their FMS without manually entering longitude/latitude coordinates because the FAA didnt provide them. So these pilots had to land on their own without using their automated FMS equipment.

With an obstacle like that, no one should be surprised that just one-quarter of one percent of the 90,000 flights in and out of Teterboro during this six-month trial actually tried the new alternate path. This is why many people believe this entire process was essentially a smokescreen to protect the status quo.

We do not accept the FAA explanation, or the noise, pollution and flat-out danger of the current flight path, which brings about 500 planes dangerously close to high-rise buildings on Prospect Avenue and the ever-expanding Hackensack University Medical Center every single day. Imagine the carnage and loss of life that would result if a plane crashed into one of these tall buildings, just as one crashed into an empty smaller building a few weeks ago. We know there is a better, safer way, and it deserves a fair trial by the FAA.
