Sen. Chuck Schumer and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand have written a letter to the FAA outlining the concerns they share with all of us about the impact of the agency’s actions on our lives in the past few years. I have attached the letter to this email.
Queens Quiet Skies worked closely with the Senator’s staff to get this letter out on your behalf. I saw firsthand how hard the Senator’s staff worked to make sure our concerns were expressed clearly and exactly.
I want to extend our sincerest thanks to Sen. Schumer and Sen. Gillibrand for sending a message that will definitely resound at the FAA and DOT. I suspect we will be seeing more from Sen. Schumer on our issue in the very near future. I will keep you posted on everything as it happens.
In recent years, some “aviation activists” in the NY metro area have made public their negative opinions about our U.S. Senators on these issues. I have known for a long time how concerned Sen. Schumer has been and what he has been doing to help us. It’s been frustrating not to be able to share it with you until now.
This is a huge step forward for us in New York and it is our victory. You can be proud of being members of Queens Quiet Skies.
