Public Workshop on RNAV (GPS) Offset Arrival Procedure for Runway 19 at Teterboro Airport – Jan. 8, 2020
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) held a public workshop on January 8, 2020, in Mahwah, N.J., to inform area residents about the Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) for a proposed new arrival procedure for Runway 19 at Teterboro Airport. Attendees viewed the flight path and altitudes of the proposed procedure and discussed it with FAA air traffic control experts. Attendees also learned about the environmental process and had the opportunity to comment on the proposed procedure.
The FAA developed the EA as required under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The agency will review and consider all comments it receives on the Draft EA. The comment period began on December 30, 2019 and ends January 30, 2020.

Availability of Draft Environmental Assessment
The FAA developed the proposed procedure at the request of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and the Teterboro Airport Noise Abatement Advisory Committee (TANAAC). They requested an alternative approach to Runway 19 that would help reduce the number of aircraft flying over the Hackensack University Medical Center and the surrounding residential areas.
