We have enough noise pollution in Torrance and surrounding cities without adding to it by refueling jets out of the city’s airport. The majority of residents such an action would negatively impact should override the wishes of the small group that the action would benefit. – T. SABOSKY Torrance airport is a public-use airport and cannot restrict jet- or turbine-powered aircraft. The airport has a very expensive and restrictive noise abatement system, and all aircraft must meet these noise limitations. Most jet aircraft today are quieter than some of the propeller aircraft, and all must meet the same noise limits. Jet aircraft that land at Torrance airport to off-load passengers must then fly to either Long Beach or Van Nuys airports for fuel before returning to Torrance to pick up passengers, thus making extra operations into and out of the airport. Robinson Helicopter Co. is in the process of certifying a jet helicopter and will have jet fuel at the airport for its operations. The city of Torrance is losing a large revenue source by not selling jet fuel at the airport. – CHUCK LIVERGOOD Torrance My husband and I think it’s a terrible idea. We think it would cause more risk and noise. – EILEEN and PETER BRANCH Redondo Beach 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
