Congressman Defends Point Loma Residents Against FAA Flight Path
Representative Scott Peters has formally submitted a letter to the Federal Aviation Association asking them to listen to San Diego residents concerns about the possible new flight path over Point Loma. Peters emphasized the "Red Dot" agreement which the FAA and San Diego residents agreed upon almost twenty years ago. This agreement had traffic controllers guide planes through two red dots on their coordinates in order to land. In doing so, this helped reduced noise pollution because there was only one route in which to land. The proposed new FAA policy would change this and Rep. Peters hopes the FAA listens and finds a compromise.
