  Analyze This -- Last Chance to Submit Airspace Redesign Comments
What goes up must come down? FAA rolled the 2003 Dual Modena departures (additional aprox. 60,000 flights since 2003 with no NEPA review) into the NY/NJ/PHL redesign's baseline. Dual modena doubled PHL's westbound departure flow and as a result understates the environmental impacts of the overall airspace redesign to residents living in Southern New Jersey, New Castle County, Delaware and Delaware County, Pennsylvania.

The issue also not to be overlooked is the proposed massive increase in capacity by FAA and the aviation industry that the NY/NJ/PHL Airspace Redesign will accommodate. As a result the emissions and noise will go up despite any operational efficiency improvements. Preventing carriers from scheduling operations in excess of facility (PHL/EWR) capacity would serve to reduce emissions and delays and has not been proposed by the FAA. Why?

Have not had a chance to attend an FAA Airspace meeting? Well tonight is your last chance to review the document and submit comments. Thanks to the hard work by Reps. Andrews and Sestak the NY/NJ/NY Airspace Redesign is now going to be reviewed by the GAO.

Cities hail court ruling on rerouting jets at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood airport
By Thomas Monnay, Posted May 16 2007, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
In a significant legal victory for two cities near Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled May 11 that the Federal Aviation Administration failed to follow environmental review procedures required by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and its own environmental review policies in seeking to alter a longstanding informal runway use program at Ft. Lauderdale International Airport without first conducting an environmental impact analysis.


Airspace plan set for review
Tuesday, May 29, 2007, By EILEEN STILWELL, Courier-Post Staff
Both congressmen oppose the plan because of the noise impact on constituents and potential cost. To date, the FAA has spent $50 million studying ways to overhaul the region's crowded airspace. "The FAA still has been unable to answer how much this plan will cost in software, training and new hires. I was told it will be in excess of $200 million," Andrews said.
If the GAO concludes that the cost outweighs the benefits, Congress could withdraw future funding. "The strategy is the same we've used on dredging the Delaware River," Andrews said.
