WHAT DO WE WANT?
Take Them Out Over the Ocean. Since inception, planes have departed east and gone straight out over the ocean before turning. Then Miami Beach complained and FAA got better equipment that allows planes to cut north faster - right over our heads. This is dangerous. This is loud. And, in North Miami, we also have Opa Locka air traffic plus the Coast Guard.
The FAA has been rolling out NextGen to lawsuits all across the nation - Miami is the last. They are funneling airplanes into a narrow path - putting 400+ flights a day over the Northeast Corridor - over our heads as low as 3,000 feet. Miami Beach & Bay Harbor lobbied for their quality of life - and ruined it for the NE Corridor. With the exception of when the wind blows from the west, there are days in which 20-30 airplanes an hour can be heard. The immediate impact = noise, soot, and greater risk. Potential long-term impact = decrease in home values, health issues*. Nowhere on their website do they reference residential quality of life as an issue.
On June 6th, North Miami and other local municipalities will be advancing their oral arguments in court.

Images taken from free App Flightradar 24 - you will find that you can hear flights that are miles away and that planes average between 5,000 - 9,000 feet over our heads - and this is just from MIA. We are impacted by domestic departures during any wind that is not from the west - so most of the time.
