Phone Conversations


I had several calls surrounding with various agencies, State Senator Yee office, TRACON, FAA out of Washington and State of California PUC Aviation Department.

The first graph shows actual published PORTE3 departure out of SFO.  Please note this departure doesn’t fly over our community.



Versus the second graph shows what is happening to our community. The PORTE3 departures are routed by the FAA directly over our community

Meeting with Senator Boxer Office

Just finished my 2nd conversation with Senator Boxer’s Aide regarding the status of SFO Noise over Brisbane. Basically this call was another ‘fact gathering’ from the Senator’s office.  They wanted to know the outcome of our TRACON meeting. Their office will be in contact with Congresswoman Speier office to get a further understanding of the issues. They also would like to know the outcome of SFO Abatement program meetings with the Airlines on the adoption of the FLY Quiet Procedure for runway 1L. The call was 25min in length and it’s hard to convey all the issues in such a short period time, but hopefully they understand our concern for the quality of life and safety issues regarding increased flights over our city.
