See Low-Flying Plane? Take A Picture, Hackensack Officials Urge

HACKENSACK, N.J. — City officials are urging Hackensack residents to report low-flying planes in the area to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) by using the agency's dedicated phone hotline and email inbox.

As part of the city's ongoing effort to advocate for a safer flight path in and out of Teterboro Airport, officials stressed the need for residents to make their voices heard at last night's City Council meeting.

"We have been in constant contact with the FAA, Teterboro Airport and TANAAC to fight for a safer flight path that would reduce the potential for serious danger in our city, and the fact that the FAA is now considering two potential alternate routes is a testament to the level of engagement that Hackensack residents have shown on this issue," Deputy Mayor Kathleen Canestrino said.

"It is crucial for residents to continue amplifying our voices by utilizing these tools and we are encouraging all residents to continue documenting low-flying planes and excessive noise and reporting these issues to the FAA."

The FAA Phone Hotline is: 201-288-8828 (or Toll Free at 800-225-1071). The FAA Email Inbox is noiseoffice@teb.com

Hackensack residents and elected officials have long advocated for an alternate flight path in and out of the airport that would follow Route 17 and take air traffic away from the city's high rise buildings and Hackensack University Medical Center.

Canestrino and fellow Council members have pledged to continue working toward a solution that will reduce the danger of a crash in the city, a frightening scenario that was made all the more real after a plane bound for Teterboro crashed earlier this year, causing two fatalities.
