  Congressional rep. feeling blue? --
The real issue is that Delco. is having problems getting the information from the FAA. The FAA/PHL noise model was paid for with funds that are managed by a government agency that is funded by tax dollars. All information requested should be provided in order to validate and accurately comment on the DIES. Notice the red inbound routes over NJ in graphic below. The jet traffic will increase with use of 17-35. What will happen if that third parallel runway is buil?. The airspace is being redesigned. Why haven't they answered our questions?

Dual Modena -- FAA Choke Point -- Lowest Cost Options


Most likely in order for FAA to make room for the increased traffic in and out of 17-35 the "Dual Modena" departure patterns were implemented last November. But Delaware will not be impacted by 17-35 according to the FAA. Funny how FAA implements the new traffic patterns and within 6 weeks Southwest announces it's arrival into the PHL market for Spring 2004?

What is going on at LVIA? Seems they are looking to grow that airport and the location is perfect to provide relief for the over crowded NY metro airports and PHL. Wonder why that airport is not on the "FAA radar" as an expansion alternative for Philadelphia's airport?

It pumped significant revenue into the airport, including the fees it paid to the airport and the money generated by passengers using airport parking lots, restaurants and small shops....
