4/26/2017 - Teterboro Airport/FAA Meeting Regarding Flight Paths

From the Condo/Co-op Advisory Board

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).
