Four neighborhood associations have joined together to work on Hawthorne Airport noise and safety issues. We held our first open community meeting in February 2018. Approximately 50 community members attended and shared their concerns.
Issues presented at the meeting included:
- Current flight paths are a serious issue/pilots are not following fly quietly guidelines (pdf)
- No one is willing to work with neighborhood associations on noise abatement. There is an endless circle of blame and excuses from government representatives: the FAA is responsible; the Pilots are responsible; the Airport is responsible; and so on endlessly.
- Lots of community questions – no answers yet from the airport.
