A new public relations campaign is beginning to make it appear that there is activity to obtain noise reduction (“Airport officials still eyeing light curfew,” March 17). It cannot be relied upon to have any substance leading to practical results.
As in the past, all pretenses to make this happen will take place in private meetings. Those involved have no intention to speak publicly about their respective objectives.
The strongest opposition in the Part 161 application for a mandatory curfew came from scheduled airlines and general aviation. These factions will not come around advocating or authorizing mandatory restrictions this time or any other time.
