Yesterday, May 15, 2018, FAA filed its Response Brief in the Southern California Metroplex matter currently pending in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. http://bit.ly/2GrN8Mw In case you missed it, here is our Opening Brief http://bit.ly/2rIsmCO that FAA was responding to.
Residents from around Los Angeles and San Diego filed a Petition for Review of the FAA’s “Southern California Metroplex” project which redesigned the airspace over Southern California. The issue: re-arranging the flight paths increased the noise and pollution for many people on the ground. In addition, it put aircraft over the heads of many people for the first time.
