City staff has told us no one uses the guide, the only guidelines they follow is on departure they need to turn south away from LAX traffic.

One of the Chief Pilot’s said the guide is not used because it is unclear – pilots do not understand the street names that are referenced in the guidelines.

The FAA approved, City of Hawthorne Part 150 noise report promises this is the guide pilots will follow voluntarily.

Each of the our neighborhood coalition members report none of the planes follow the guidelines.
