Surf Air's "Old Approach" and "New Approach" are Both Lies on Sunnyvale People

Surf Air's "New Bayside Visual Approach" dumping sky traffic to Sunnyvale as a 'Mitigation'

Excerpts from Reducing Aircraft Noise By Congressman Mike Honda:

on July 5th, 2016, the number of Surf Air flights going into and out of San Carlos Airport over SF Bay, crossing Sunnyvale, increased. San Mateo County, which operates the airport, called this a “noise mitigation measure ” when it asked the FAA for permission to allow Surf Air to do this more often. The FAA gave permission for a six-month test to determine the impacts of this route on flight operations and community residents. As residents of Sunnyvale can attest to, this change is already bringing more air traffic and noise over their homes, negatively impacting their quality of life.

 Previously Old Approach (Claimed by San Carlos)
  New Approach Over Sunnyvale
 We did NOT notice ANY Surf Air passing Sunnyvale
 
Old Approach for Surf Air (San Carlos Airport)
6 Months Trial Going on, without notifying Sunnyvale!

Will Be Permanent Soon If YOU Do Nothing!

 
New Approach for Surf Air (San Carlos Airport)

We request FAA and San Carlos to revert back to the original state for Sunnyvale and Cupertino, neither the "New Bayside Visual Approach", nor the "GPS Approach Used by Surf Air". They are both part of the lie!

Above is URF101 as an example.
2016/7/18: Passing Palo Alto without passing Sunnyvale (What it used to be)
2016/9/17: Passing Palo Alto and passing South Sunnyvale
("Old" Approach)
2016/9/20: Passing South Sunnyvale and North Sunnyvale, without Passing Palo Alto ("New" Approach)

And they are trying to sell us the "New" approach, if failed, they will "stay" the "Old" approach, still a big win for them!

Hi Sunnyvale? Awaken now?

In
Letter from Congresswoman Eshoo:

"I recognize that there is potential for this trial route to reduce the impact of noise over our mutual constituents in San Mateo County. However, if this route has an adverse impact on Mountain View and Sunnyvale and there is not a process to consider the concerns of all of my constituents before the FAA considers granting it permanent status, I will oppose this measure."

And our Mayor Glenn Hendrick can prove to you that he was not notified about any of such proposals.
