Lawsuits for Compensation for the Jet Noise

If you’d like to receive an informational pdf letter by Neil Schaefer about such suits, please write Neil at . The advantages and disadvantages of such suits are discussed. A sample completed claim form will be included. Completing and sending a claim form to the airport owner is the first step toward a suit for nuisance; it is short and free to file. The San Francisco and San Jose City Attorney offices say it must be postmarked no later than 9/5/15, if the “cause of action” accrued on 3/5/15.

  • The FAA’s hyped NextGen program that was implemented earlier this year under the guise of “reducing emissions and making air travel more efficient nationwide as jets are able to make more efficient and direct paths” is just a sham & smokescreen that allow the airlines to rake in billions more in profits at the expense of the neighborhoods these lowered jet-take-offs impact.

    Jets have a take-off climb rate during which they are reaching altitude. Before NextGen this climb rate was required to be steep enough so that most neighborhoods 10-15-20 miles from the airports were not affected by the whine & roar of jet engines overhead.

    Lowering the climb-rate lets the jets climb at lower altitudes over long-drawn-out flight paths instead of previous steep climb-rates which used to protect neighborhoods from jet noise pollution.

    The consequence of this has been to subject neighborhoods which once had zero jet noise overhead to constant unbearable jet noise, often times as much as a jet a minute, 16 hours a day, 7 days a week. Try listening to 600 to 700 jets a day over your roof top!

    How can you concentrate on anything else when all you hear 16 hours a day, 7 days a week is the whine & roar of a jet over your house inside or outside. It’s like having a house alarm or car alarm going off 16 hours a day, 7 days a week. No one can!

    The once quite neighborhood this is specifically referring to is Medlock Park in Decatur Georgia, 30033. Please help us reverse this FAA decision which destroys neighborhoods in exchange for airline profits.

    • I am interested and agree. I couldn’t even concentrate enough to read in my backyard because of all the jet noise. This is ridiculous and preventable. Some things take precedence over profit.
