Van Nuys Jet Noise

* The Times article Feb. 6 concerning jet noise at Van Nuys Airport (“Limit on Noisy Jets at Van Nuys Proposed”) is of great concern to me and many of my neighbors in Valley Village.

Council Members [Mike] Feuer and [Cindy] Miscicowski said they want to ban Stage 2 jets at Van Nuys Airport. Would the corporate jet operators at Van Nuys go out of business? No. They would move their operations to Burbank Airport. The east San Fernando Valley would then get to listen to all the commercial jets departing from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., and all the corporate jets as well. This proposal is nothing but a noise transfer.

Residents of Studio City, Valley Village, Toluca Lake and North Hollywood must speak out loud and clear and say, “No additional jet noise at Burbank Airport.”
