I am writing to urge you to stop implementation of the NorthEast Airspace Redesign.
My family and I will suffer from the Airspace Redesign's massive increase in noise and air pollution.
We are shocked and disappointed that the FAA is implementing this project without ever contacting our community about it, never studying how this will impact my family, and then refusing to lessen the impacts in any way.
This is a very serious matter. My family and I purchased our home far away from airports so that we could enjoy the fresh air and quiet. To permit the FAA to arbitrarily change the flight paths without conducting studies and informing my community is totally inexcusable, and it is illegal.
Now I fear for the safety of my family. The World Health Organization just published a landmark study on aviation noise. Aviation noise causes high blood pressure, heart disease and can lead to heart attack. My children will also suffer from learning disabilities and we will have trouble sleeping which impacts my work productivity.
The Airspace Redesign also makes the airplanes fly lower to the ground. Asthma, Lung Cancer, Liver Cancer and heart disease will result from breathing in the emissions from jet engine exhaust. And yet the FAA never even bothered to study how this will impact my family, my town, my neighbors. These all have quantifable imacts and they are directly related to the FAA's Airspace redesignThe FAA and the airlines don't seem to take these health risks seriously. Please do you best to change this.
I respectfully urge you to stop implementation of the project and make the FAA conduct a valid impact study. Then find ways to lessen the impacts before a public health disaster results.
