T.A.N.G. Open House – April 12, 2018
It has been six years since T.A.N.G. began their advocacy on the issue of aircraft noise in our neighbourhoods and they are still at it! There have been countless meetings with elected officials at all levels and a number of independent studies, third party reviews and consultations initiated by NAV CANADA and the GTAA. TANG has been a respected, full time participant at all these events and continues to lend its voice on your behalf for a fair, balanced approach to flight path routes and airspace implementations.
They are pleased to inform you that a number of the “technical” initiatives we proposed have been successfully studied and will soon be implemented. Some include a retrofit (installation of a vortex generator) of noisy aircraft, some changes to increase aircraft altitudes on arrival and a new route for restricted hours (12:30am to 6:29am) flights. They welcome these positive changes.
What remains unresolved is the disproportionate utilization of runways at Pearson Airport. Our communities, affected by airspace changes in 2012, still account for 40 percent of all arrivals! Recently published data from the GTAA indicate that our current, annual flights of 88,000 flights (2017) will grow to over 120,000 because of projected growth plans at Pearson.
On the evening of April 12, 2018 at 7:00 the GTAA will be hosting a Community Open House at the Leaside Gardens (William Lea Tea Room) to discuss their airport operations and noise abatement initiatives. The “come and go” format allows residents to get answers to their questions without having to sit through a long presentation they don’t understand. It is crucial that a large number of residents attend this event as a demonstration of our communities support of TANG and the aviation noise issue. Numbers mean everything at this point of our advocacy. Our elected officials have been invited to attend.
Please see the link below for more information about the public meetings and how to register for the event. If you can’t attend the event we encourage you to fill out the online survey.

It will be especially important that as many Residents as possible attend the May 22 session.
