Proposed Airspace and Aircraft Routing Feasibility Study
Coastal Communities of Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties
Focus and Objectives
1. Aircraft noise analysis and mitigation
a. Reduce noise impacts of aircraft to residents, animals and the environment.
2. Air traffic routing away from residential areas
a. Petition the FAA for more compatible airspace.
3. Conduct a case study for Rincon Island’s alternative use:
a. Decommissioning Phase 2 completion is anticipated before June 30, 2021 for Rincon Island and the Causeway.
b. Community use of Rincon Island for Helicopter operations has been proposed.
The design concept is for near-term aircraft operations as a Helipad (NO aviation fuel).
c. Rincon Island as a vertiport will future-proof the coastal communities with safe, fast and sustainable
as well as CARGO Transport with eVTOL Electric Aircraft.
d. The environmental and operational analysis is to be conducted in accordance with:
