FAA’s flight pattern, aircraft noise meeting postponed

October 18, 2012 at 8:49 pm | In Neighborhoods, West Seattle news | 5 Comments

Next Tuesday’s planned meeting for Seattle’s south communities to talk with the FAA about aircraft noise and flight-pattern changes has been postponed, with no new date yet. So reports The Seattle Times (WSB news partner); we’ll check with the FAA tomorrow and let you know when there’s a new date. The meeting was announced a month ago following Mayor McGinn‘s request last month for a south-side meeting, after the FAA closed the comment period on the Greener Skies plan despite having meetings only in Ballard (WSB coverage here) and Federal Way.

  2. Does the FAA control military aircraft? I mostly hear the helicopters traveling from JBLM to Widbey.

  3. FAA and the Coast Guard have a history of doing what they want and when they want. Noise is worse now than it ever has been. Some days I have to wait for jet to go by so I can continue a conversation. (north WS area) Coast Guard really needs to do something about allowing bridge openings during morning and afternoon commutes. No reason at all for them to allow this except they can. Affects too many people.

  4. @ wetone Maritime traffic has a right to travel as well and may need passage at specific times for tides. I hate traffic snarls as well, but we all need to realize the world doesn’t revolve around us…
