Maybe the FAA and LaGuardia could actually stop pissing people off with their implementation of the NextGen system and flying planes loud and low over thousands of peoples homes.
Without even doing any environmental testing or talking to the communities affected they just went ahead and decided to change flight paths creating virtual runways over peoples homes. Communities nowhere near the airport are being driven insane.
Angering thousands and probably the few crazy ones that do these highly dangerous things.
Figure it out FAA, Port Authority and LaGuardia. Stop angering people and talk to the communities in earnest. Do some real world testing instead of using computer models. 5 months ago
Oh well. This was bound to happen and will continue as long as the FAA continues to direct planes to fly at ridiculously low altitudes over vast distances of residential areas in Queens. All this due to their hurried roll out of their NextGen implementation with little regard to the communities on the ground and the environment. They basically just changed flight paths without consulting anybody and doing no environmental tests. In a nut shell, shoving it down our throats over the last year and a half.
I don't condone these highly dangerous actions, but I understand that when you don't work with the community before you start flying jets low and loud ALL THE TIME, people will get pissed and some of those people will do crazy things.
Figure it out FAA and LaGuardia. Create flight paths that don't drive people insane.
