  Lantana Officials blame FAA and helicopter schools for disturbing the public

Officials blame FAA and helicopter schools

January 17th Casandra Davis (standing) noise abatement officer, and Jerry Allen Deputy Director of the department face strong criticism from residents of five surrounding communities of the airport fed up with helicopter schools routinely violating County 'good neighbor' standards and insisting on training over people's homes and families. The meeting quickly heated up when the question came up as to why the DOA (Department of Airports) after ten years... hasn't managed to gain an ounce of compliance from helicopter schools to the County's 'good neighbor' guidelines.

  Lantana Helicopter petition ready for signing Saturday 4/24/10

CLICK HERE TO READ PETITION

HELICOPTER PETITION SIGNING WILL BEGIN SATURDAY 24th

Be sure to read the PETITION SUMMARY on the next page.

Lantana, Atlantis, Lanier Park, Lake Osborne, Floral Park, High Ridge Road, Pine Street, everybody... this is the beginning of a sustained effort to force airport tenants, helicopter training schools, instructors, students and pilots to comply with the County Commission's NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES that were put in place nearly a decade ago (updated in 2005 as well) to protect our communities from further harm due to reptitive training operations over our heads.

PETITIONS will be available for signing between 11 AM and 3 PM Saturday April 24th, at the circled (in red) location above ...right on Lake Osborne Drive. We are hoping that parking will not be necessary and residents can just drive up, read and sign. We will update as necessary as the day draws near.

  Lantana Near Collision

Palm Beach Radar data highlights safety issues at Lantana Airport

Above radar snapshot shows two aircraft training at Lantana Airport that came within seconds of a potential collision on April 3rd

CLICK HERE FOR SHORT VIDEO OF THE RADAR TRACES IN REAL TIME

With periods of time when Lantana Airport has two and a half times the flight traffic as PBI and with no form of control... it's no wonder there are huge safety issues at Lantana Airport as the incident above shows. But this is not a unique incident... there are so many safety incidents occuring almost daily, that it's impossible to archive all of them. Pick any day and hour and its a certainty that something will pop up somehwere.
