Learning from Palo Alto’s Sky Posse Group…

omekbloggamfdegh

We are starting to collaborate with our friends around the bay, including Sky Posse (a very organized and creative Palo Alto jet noise group).  To check out their website go to and to join Sky Posse’s insightful news feed   http://www.skypossepaloalto.org/

Though their recommendations and petitions are sometimes Palo Alto-centered, we have a great opportunity to echo their concerns and actions from here in San Francisco.   We can work together, since they also believe that there are many viable options to reduce noise and emissions, while meeting the goals of modernizing our airspace system.

They recently requested that their members write fairly specific letters to specific FAA personnel as we await FAA’s Initiative to Address Noise Concerns due anytime now.  If you want to know the specifics about the letter that they are recommending people write, please subscribe to their feed or contact SCREAAM via our website for more information.

The Airplane Impacts Mitigation (AIM) Act of 2017 introduced

boston-jet-noiseBOSTON, MASS – This week, Congressman Stephen F. Lynch (D-Boston), joined by members of the bipartisan Quiet Skies Caucus, introduced H.R. 598, the Airplane Impacts Mitigation (AIM) Act of 2017.

In a press release from congressman Lynch, congresswoman Anna Eshoo who represents the South Bay comments:

New flight paths implemented under the FAA’s NextGen program have generated alarming and untenable increases in noise impacts across my entire Congressional District. I consistently hear from constituents who are impacted daily and are concerned about air pollution and other negative health impacts of airplane overflights.  This legislation goes to the heart of this issue, ensuring there will be scientific data developed and measured to assess the NextGen program and its effect on my constituents.

The complete press release is  available here.

An amazing jet noise complaint story from Washington DC area…

astronaut-jet-noise-complaints

Here is an interesting jet noise complaint post from the other side of the country. There certainly are similarities with what is going on in some parts of San Francisco these days… and with how some residents feel about our jet noise situation.
