CharlestonBerkeleyand Dorchester. As of the U. Census, the metropolitan statistical area had a total population ofpeople.
Residents of these cities are now demanding that the airport order jet planes to stop flying over their houses. The article reports airport spokesman Ron Wilson said an increase in international flights using larger jet planes means more noise.
And more arriving flights from the north and the Pacific are also using a landing route that takes them over a larger chunk of the Peninsula.
There are newer types of aircraft that are relatively quiet -- but you are still going to hear them," said Wilson. San Francisco International and other airports are required to keep noise in nearby communities to 65 decibels averaged over 24 hours, with heavier weight given to noise in the evening and late at night.
Sixty-five decibels is about the noise level of a normal face-to-face conversation. Ideally, arriving flights from the north or the Pacific fly south from Point Reyes to the bay, where they take a sharp right turn onto SFO. Called the "slam dunk" approach, this is the quietest flight pattern.
But more and more flights are taking the "Peninsula approach," an alternate route that takes them down the Peninsula before turning sharply left as they make their final approach to the airport.
The article goes on to report Andy Richards, acting manager of Bay Tracon, a federal agency that monitors flights to and from Bay Area airports, said the Peninsula pattern is being used more often because of an increase in air traffic over the bay -- airspace San Francisco-bound planes share with flights to and from other airports.
In the Bay Area's complex aviation system, San Francisco airport officials say that they do not have much control over how and where planes fly. You have the airlines which have their own concerns over safety, efficiency and fuel costs.
You have international trade agreements which say we cannot restrict planes. They are becoming more politically active in the fight against noise. But the city's application has been denied.
Adding more members could dilute the discussions. Everyone will have their own agenda. It has no power. It has no staff of its own. It has as much power as the PTA. And, recently, in a controversial move, Foster City took the unprecedented step of hiring a law firm in its battle for a quieter SFO.
The article reports Larsen said Foster City hopes to challenge the assertion in court by San Francisco airport director John Martin that federal law limits his powers over flight routes.
Foster City hopes to present the Roundtable with a legal brief later this year supporting the position that Martin has more regulatory power.Aug 31, · I am using Pettit's EasyPoxy topside paint as bottom paint.
