Culver Crest neighbor Barbara Markoe is hosting an update on NextGen this Sunday February 11, 2018 at 3pm along with Dani Zandel. The meeting will cover currently available information from the LAX Roundtable and solicit neighbors who are informed and want to play an active role moving forward. Please contact Barbara directly at (310) 266-2077 if you wish to participate.
NextGEN is the Federal Aviation Administration’s program to upgrade the nation’s air traffic control systems from the traditional radar+radio communication to modern satellite based GPS with automated data exchange. The net effect is that airplanes will be able to take more direct routes to their destinations and have less need to stack up, reducing effects like the Downey Rush. Because airplanes can now take more direct routes to LAX than via Downey, areas around LAX will see an increase of low altitude flights.
