We have heard from many of our Members about the airplane noise from the steady stream of planes taking off from Burbank Airport. They expressed hearing them not only in their yards, but inside of their homes. The sheer number of flights and the noise level from the proximity of the flights has substantially worsened in the last several months. At the recent meeting hosted by the SCRA where City Attorney Mike Feuer spoke, there were many Tolucan’s in attendance. The Studio City residents were quite vocal at this meeting, and have been vocal for some time. One of the questions raised at the meeting was, “Why did the flight patterns change, and why not change them back to where they were?”
If you are affected by the noise, then it will be important our representatives hear us loud and clear. That can only help mitigate the problem!
We encourage our Members affected by airplane noise from the Burbank Airport to write our representatives. Following is a group email of our representatives to help make our voices heard.

It should be stated that most are huge fans of our Burbank Airport, as most of us use it on a regular basis, and love its convenience. The issue is that of the noise from the recently changed flight patterns that adversely affects Toluca Lake.
