Airbus 380 Adds to Noise Concerns

As superjumbo enters airspace, EAB sees coalition with neighboring towns gaining strength.

It was Easter Sunday, just after 2 p.m., and the day was turning into a picture-perfect late spring preview, with temperatures rising into the 70s under sunny skies.

But those idyllic conditions over Garden City would soon be interrupted by the thunderous approach of an Emirates A380, the new airbus superjumbo which was flying at just 1,605 feet above homes in parts of the village.

The giant aircraft was more than a mile north of where it should have been and nearly 700 feet lower than the required 2,300-foot altitude required by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

The A380 is no average carrier. It is the largest passenger jet ever built, so huge that airports have yet to redesign their hangars to accommodate it. So you can imagine the angst of trustee Laurence Quinn and other members of the Garden City Environmental Advisory Board (EAB) when they received that information.

“We have a smoking gun,” Quinn said.

During April’s EAB meeting, the A380 incident was part of a larger discussion about low-flying aircraft over Garden City. It dominated the agenda, even though this issue is nothing new to members of the board.

However, the introduction of the Airbus 380 over our skies is a new wrinkle in the issue, since the aircraft was supposed to start flying this summer.

Last October, the FAA announced a new route redesign that would send some departing planes from JFK over communities in the Town of Hempstead. Despite protests, the FAA said noise wouldn’t be an issue with the new redesign.

But as Quinn pointed out, the bigger planes bound for Kennedy Airport come in at lower altitudes. With 80 percent of all flights heading to JFK below the 2,300-foot threshold, Quinn said the problem won’t be going away anytime soon.

It isn’t just low-flying planes that concern the board; it is also planes flying after midnight. “Prior to 2007 it was not allowed,” Quinn said.

The board agreed that a coalition is building among the communities of Garden City, East Williston, Stewart Manor and Floral Park to try and pressure the FAA.

“We’re looking into why the FAA cannot enforce the rule,” Quinn said. “We’ve had an open dialogue for 40 years with them.”

Quinn said New Hyde Park, Mineola and Floral Park each have a group dedicated to reducing airplane noise. It is challenging for these groups to work together since one solution usually means sending the planes over a neighboring town.

Still, Quinn sees momentum for the coalition building. “If we all work together, the only thing we can agree on is height,” Quinn said.

The EAB is holding out hope the FAA can deliver on its promise to mitigate noise over Garden City and surrounding neighborhoods with its new airspace redesign.

Why are the Garden City Trustees concerned about the Airbus 380 when Hamptons-bound helicopters continue to fly along the LIRR tracks from Friday Noon right through Sunday night? The Airbus 380 flies into JFK maybe twice a day in the late afternoon while helicopters fly over several times an hour and at a much lower altitude.

How long is the airport there and how long are these residents did living there.
You know the airport was there when you bought your house, and you get a TAX break for that.

LTP builds $30-M hangar to service A380
By BERNIE CAHILES-MAGKILAT
May 2, 2011, 5:51pm

MANILA, Philippines — Lufthansa Technik Philippines (LTP), a joint venture of Lufthansa Technik AG of Germany and Philippine aviation service provider MacroAsia Corporation, is investing $30 million for a new hangar to provide repair and maintenance services to the world’s largest and most technologically advanced commercial plane, Airbus A380.

The groundbreaking of the new hangar was scheduled on Friday at the LTP headquarters at the MacroAsia Special Economic Zone in Villamor Airbase in Pasay City.

The new aircraft maintenance hangar, located at the MacroAsia Special Economic Zone in Villamor Airbase in Pasay City, is slated for completion by January 2012 to become part of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport complex.

“The new $30 million hangar indicates the continuing commitment of Lufthansa Technik Philippines to build its investment in the Philippines and create hundreds of high-tech, high-skill jobs for Filipinos, putting the Philippines in the global aviation map,” the company said.

The designation of LTP as the preferred location for the A380 maintenance within the Lufthansa Technik Group is a major coup for the company and the country.

Through the $30 million investment, the Philippines is one of the few locations of A380 maintenance in the world.

For LTP, it will mean the long-term security for its current 2,700 employees. Further, the A380 project will create 400 high-tech and high-skills jobs.

Concurrent with the construction of the hangar is the acquisition of tooling and equipment. Training of the Filipino technical staff who will be performing maintenance tasks on this most advanced airliner, is underway.

Founded in the year 2000, LTP offers a wide range of aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services to customers worldwide. It was originally envisioned to service the MRO needs of Philippine Airlines, which is owned by tycoon Lucio Tan, who also owns MacroAsia. Over the years, however, LTP has expanded to service the fleet of other foreign airlines.

The company heavily focuses on base maintenance checks for the A319/A320 and A330/A340 types of aircraft. Seven hangar bays and workshops have been upgraded to the latest industry standards to support aircraft maintenance, major modifications, cabin reconfigurations, engine maintenance and painting for A319/A320, A330/A340, B747-400 and B777 aircraft. It has also added a new widebody hangar to meet the increasing demand for A330/A340 base maintenance checks.

The company aims to be the MRO provider of first choice in Asia. It aims to assure safety and reliability of its customers.

It has an extensive line and base maintenance approval from major aviation authorities including the United States' Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Europe 's EASA. The company has a workforce of 2,700 highly skilled mechanics, engineers and support personnel.

Five hangar bays and workshops have been upgraded to the latest industry standards to support aircraft maintenance and overhaul, major modifications, cabin reconfigurations, engine maintenance and painting for Airbus A320, A330/A340, Boeing 747-400 aircraft. LTP also provides manpower support to airline customers, other MROs and affiliates in the Lufthansa Technik Group.

Qantas to add third A380 flight to LA: From Brisbane

Quote:
Qantas is set to add a third A380 flight from Australia to Los Angeles' LAX airport, according to newspaper reports in LA, adding yet more seats across the Pacific. Business travellers are likely to see cheaper fares and more availability on the route as a result.

More competition between airlines is good news for passengers, but only if the smaller players aren't forced out of the market. When that happens, larger airlines can put their prices up again, as Australians found after Ansett Australia collapsed in 2002.

Qantas' A380 plans are a warning shot across the bow for Strategic Airways -- which plans to be the third Australian airline to fly to the US -- and for John Borghetti, CEO of the Virgin Blue/V Australia/Virgin Australia group. Virgin Blue is applying to the US Department of Transportation to be allowed to hook up with American carrier Delta.

The information about Qantas' A380 comes buried in an article in Los Angeles local paper the Daily Breeze on the revamp of LAX's international terminal.

The article, which focusses more on the impact for LAX itself, says: "Singapore Airlines and Korean Air each plan to launch one A380 flight from LAX later this year, while Qantas intends to add a third A380 jetliner to its Los Angeles routes in 2012."

I think the Korean Air A380 livery is the best so far!

Korean Air carries out A380 test flights
Originally published on asia.businesstraveller.com 05/05/2011 - Filed under: News »

Korean Air has released images of its first Airbus A380 undergoing test flights in Hamburg, as part of its final phase of production before going into service.

The aircraft will then fly to Toulouse for the delivery ceremony and from there it will be deployed on routes between Seoul, Tokyo and Hong Kong in June (see story here).

The aircraft cabin was furnished and the livery was painted at Airbus’ facility in Hamburg. For a video of the freshly painted aircraft rolling out of the paintshop in Hamburg, click here.

Korean Air’s superjumbo will be the first with the entire upper deck dedicated to business class seats (see story here) and the world’s first aircraft to consist of an inflight duty free store - the Duty Free Showcase - on the main deck (see story here).

The carrier is expected to take delivery of another four A380s by the end of 2011 and the remaining five will arrive by 2014.
