Airport Noise – Your help needed!

Many people in the Riviera area, especially on the north side of the hill, have experienced a huge increase in the amount of airport noise.  This is due to the City of Torrance not enforcing their “no early left turn rule,” the increase in flight schools at Torrance Airport,  and finally, the decision to allow training flights to also turn left on leaving the runway, which has never been the case. We have never had training flights over south Torrance before this spring and summer.

Increasing Airport flight patterns

 Training flights now circle around the Riviera and Walteria area while practicing take offs and landings.  They are allowed to fly at a lower height than is normally required, but in fact, many pilots are flying lower than even the flight school requirement of 1,100 feet.  At the top of Paseo de las Tortugas, some training planes have been recorded at 370 feet above homes, which is a dangerously low altitude.  

The worst effect is the increase in noise all over the area. 

If you are bothered by airport noise, please go to the link below and sign the petition asking the City of Torrance to enforce the Torrance Municipal Code regarding the airport, and have the City ask for expert legal advice for more solutions to this problem.
