Want Planes Routed Over Ocean, Away From Homes
The FAA is currently
considering several options for routing traffic in to and out of
the east coast's busiest airports. That doesn't sit well with
residents in Ocean County, NJ, however -- who say the agency is
strongly considering the possibility of routing thousands of
airplane flights over their homes. They want the agency to abandon
THAT idea once and for all.
The Asbury Park Press reports that citizens in the state's
northern and central counties have pushed since the 1990s for the
federal government to stop sending so many flights from Newark
Liberty International Airport and the New York airports across
Those citizens have formed a group called the New Jersey
Coalition Against Aircraft Noise, which is a proponent of a system
called ocean routing: sending the departing jets south along the
state's coastline -- allowing the jets to gain altitude while over
the ocean -- before making a westward turn across Ocean County.
That doesn't sit well with residents of Ocean County, however,
who would suddenly have to deal with those planes over their homes,
"We don't want any more flights directed over this county," said
Ocean County Freeholder James P. Lacey. "We need the FAA to abandon
the ocean routing proposal."
As was reported in Aero-News,
the FAA recently held a public information session on how to route
the planes and reduce the noise. The FAA has been considering four
alternatives for lessening aircraft noise, including ocean routing
-- but so far, a decision has not been made.
