Hackensack Officials Urge Residents to Report Low Flying Planes to FAA
Campaign Part of Ongoing City Effort to Advocate for Safer Flight Path

HACKENSACK, N.J. -- City officials are urging Hackensack residents to report low-flying planes in the area to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) by using the agency's dedicated phone hotline and email inbox. Part of the city's ongoing effort to advocate for a safer flight path in and out of Teterboro Airport, officials stressed the need for residents to make their voices heard at last night's City Council meeting.

"We have been in constant contact with the FAA, Teterboro Airport and TANAAC to fight for a safer flight path that would reduce the potential for serious danger in our city, and the fact that the FAA is now considering two potential alternate routes is a testament to the level of engagement that Hackensack residents have shown on this issue," said Deputy Mayor Kathleen Canestrino. "It is crucial for residents to continue amplifying our voices by utilizing these tools and we are encouraging all residents to continue documenting low-flying planes and excessive noise and reporting these issues to the FAA."

The FAA Phone Hotline is: 201-288-8828 (or Toll Free at 800-225-1071)

The FAA Email Inbox is noiseoffice@teb.com
