Update on Flight Path over Lake Arrowhead

Last Saturday, at our ALA Annual Membership Meeting last Saturday, several ALA Members voiced their concerns about the intrusive, loud jets flying over Lake Arrowhead and asked for an update on resolving this issue. As we know, this issue started last year on April 27, 2017.  There have been letter writing and email campaigns, community meetings, Facebook postings, and meetings with FAA officials and our representatives in Washington, D.C. In January 2018, our Lake Arrowhead Municipal Advisory Council hosted a Town Hall Meeting at the Lake Arrowhead Resort with approximately 500 residents addressing our concerns with FAA Western Pacific Regional Administrator Dennis Roberts.  It was at this Town Hall Meeting where Mr. Roberts made a commitment to our community to arrange a curfew of overnight flights over Lake Arrowhead, so residents could get much needed sleep from 11 PM - 6 AM.

However, that has proven not to be the case. Mr. Roberts has failed to live up to his promise of nights and early morning hours to be free of airplane noise.

Our community and ALA have requested that the FAA officials remove the flight path from the populated community over our lake and move it over to the uninhabited forest and desert lands less than 4 miles east of Lake Arrowhead. We need to restore our community’s quality of life with noise free enjoyment of our quiet mountain lifestyle and recreation on our lake.  

As ALA Memberships are close to 5000, we are a force to be reckoned with, if everyone writes emails and calls Dennis Roberts as often as possible. His email is dennis.roberts@faa.gov His office phone number is (310) 725-3550.
