Wiseburn Watch Releases Petition Results – Jan 2018

We the people of Los Angeles County unincorporated community of Wiseburn CA 90250 want the Hawthorne Airport to end the practice of commercial and private aircraft flying over our city. This has increased dramatically the last year and a half. This is the area bordered by El Segundo Blvd to the North, Inglewood Ave to the East, Rosecrans Ave to the South and La Cienega Blvd to the west. There is a flight plan in place that diverts some takeoffs to turn south at Hawthorne Blvd and head south. This would be ideal to apply to all flights both VFR and IFR registered flights. We request that the FAA and the Hawthorne Airport select that departure policy as the standard. The increased noise and pollution are unhealthy. An example of this is the 6AM take off by jets. It’s not right to force disproportionate environmental impacts on our community to relieve another.
Again we request the flights over Wiseburn be redirected south paralleling Hawthorne Blvd to the south.

Re: Hawthorne-West Athens Part 150 Participation

Dear Congresswoman Waters and Administrator Huerta,

We are located in the flight path of the Hawthorne airport. Our community is concerned about safety, noise and pollution issues caused by the increasing commercial air traffic into Hawthorne (HHR).

We have tried for over a year to engage with the airport; however, the airport says they are unable to schedule a meeting with our community at this time.  The airport is finishing their Part 150 noise study but never included the West Athens community as part of the process. Community members have sent Part 150 comment letters to the local FAA office which have gone unanswered.
