SAVE OUR SKIES SANTA CRUZ COUNTY / COPYRIGHT 2017 / D.STANSFIELD DESIGN / DENISEDESIGN.COM
Save Our Skies Santa Cruz is a grass roots organization of committed, well-organized community members concerned about the new SERFR One flight path which has brought serious and consistent noise levels over the residents of Santa Cruz County. We are trying to propose solutions so that no one is disproportionately impacted by noise. We are working on a technical level with the FAA so that we find solutions that are optimal for all citizens on the ground.
July 2017 FAA Report: click here
This is the first draft and not the final report. Our SOSSC committee is reviewing the details in the report with our congressional offices and will formulate our response after thorough review and discussion. We will keep you updated with our progress.
STOP THE JET NOISE! RESCIND SERFR!
Since March 5, 2015 Santa Cruz residents have been inundated with a relentless parade of loud, low flying jet aircraft on a new southern arrival procedure to San Francisco International Airport (SFO). Implemented as part of the FAA’s NextGEN program, a new arrival flight procedure called SERFR replaced the BIGSR South Bay Arrival procedure.
We Did It! Historic Vote 8-4
TRANSITION SERFR TO BIGSR
The Select Committee rejected SERFR and voted for SFO southern arrivals to use the BSR ground track. This is the language that was voted in: RESCIND SERFR RECOMMENDATION
It’s been a long 19 months and our passion and determination prevailed. Our SOSSC Community is strong, determined and united. Together we made this happen. The best thing that has happened is meeting our incredible neighbors and discovering how fortunate we all are to have each other.
DAVYJ is the NextGen equivalent of “return to BIGSR”.
DAVYJ will be as quiet or quieter than BIGSR
DAVYJ has been deemed feasible by the FAA
DAVYJ restores the original BIGSR groundtrack
DAVYJ will fly OPD "the quietest way to fly an airplane" per the FAA
DAVYJ does NOT fly over higher elevation communities
KEEP REPORTING JET NOISE! get on track.....
Jet Noise complaints have dropped and it is not over yet! Please keep reporting as we move through the process. The data speaks for itself. We have reported over 3,000,000 complaints on jet noise in the past year! Data is the undeniable proof that we needed to stay on track, to restore the BSR track. Thank you for your support and keep it up!
