It’s nice to see an airport authority Noise Office using their own airport operational data and graphics to disprove the NextGen hype being pitched by FAA and the industry players FAA serves. Not so nice to see how often FAA et al try to hide the data/graphics.

If there is a weakness in their presentation, it is that their webpages and this 4-page flyer often link back to biased webpages posted by FAA and other pro-NextGen outfits.
