Lantana Airport Update

2 Updates as of November 2020:
1. Regarding the fixed wing aircraft that zooms real low, M22BR, complaints have been filed with the FAA in
July 2019. Most recently I received a letter that says they didn’t violate any rules. Filed a freedom of
information request, that’s pending. Aircraft Operator, Island Time Charters, invited Carlos Serrano, Larry
Silver and Bill Coakley to come and talk about their concerns. They claim the radar isn’t accurate. With that
aircraft loaded heavily, they have to maintain a certain speed to remain airborne. When they take off eastbound
into our neighborhood they are a little low but they’re trying to maintain speed to remain airborne. They did
reveal that they have hired an attorney against the FAA investigation to keep from getting a violation. We have
leverage there since they want to avoid generating any more complaints from this neighborhood. It seems
they’ve adjusted their flight pattern in the past month, since we met with them.
2. The Noise Study got interrupted because of COVID. Things have progressed in recent months. The
consultant has completed all its data; flight data and noise recordings. There was a public meeting last night
where they presented some of that data. They haven’t developed the noise maps or the recommendations, but it
was an opportunity for residents to give some import. I did receive some information from residents and
submitted that to be recorded as public comment. I have a copy of the letter we submitted with comments.

Consultant will prepare the draft of the noise map and it will be made available for public comment. It will be
available on the website:
