Here is a quick summary of some of the recommendations

that were sent to the FAA:

  • Most important is to immediately restore Burbank Airport's Runway 15 departure flight tracks to 2007 conditions.

  • Reject Burbank Airport's Proposed Procedures, SLAPP TWO and OROSZ THREE, that our community overwhelmingly opposed.

  • Remove Van Nuys Airport's waypoint PPRRY from all procedures.

  • Other recommendations include higher climb gradients so the jets can ascend faster; greater dispersion; and runway rotation encouraging departures to the east. 

  • Long-term recommendations include studies re noise and curfews.

The Task Force is not disbanding and will be closely watching FAA's response.

FAA will be required to provide a progress report to the Task Force quarterly.
