New Holding Patterns Over Fairfield County, Orange County, and New York – Part of FAA Plan
Below is a diagram of the new holding-pattern for the Airspace Redesign released earlier this month as part of the Environmental Impact Statement. The holding pattern over New Canaan, Wilton and Weston is at 4,000 – 5,000 feet (the last two zeros are dropped for brevity.) The Red color indicates a holding pattern for Westchester County Airport, Black - JFK Arrivals and Blue - LGA Arrivals. Please note that the Holding Pattern over New Canaan, Wilton and Weston is the lowest of all the holding patterns in the four states of New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and Pennsylvania and will result in significant noise over our community. According to our Aviation Consultant departing flights from Westchester County will now be required to fly at 2,000 – 3,000 feet when the new holding pattern is in effect.
I encourage those of you who have not done so to sign our petition on the website opposing the new FAA plan.
