New Flight Path over the San Lorenzo Valley? 

What Happened? 

   In 2015 a flight path called SERFR was implemented over Happy Valley and Los Gatos towards SFO as part of the FAA's NextGen air traffic management system. NextGen concentrates hundreds of daily flight routes into a low, loud, concentrated corridor.

   Residents under SERFR organized under the name Quiet Skies NorCal (QSNC) and Save Our Skies Santa Cruz (SOSSC), although they don't represent much of Santa Cruz, and designed a new flight path (you read that right) over a legacy ground track called BSR or BIGSUR in order to rid themselves of their flight path. QSNC assured electeds that they represented all of us.

   Our congressional Rep. Anna Eshoo was duped and in her error, is uncomfortable talking with those of us in the San Lorenzo Valley about to be affected by the new path, dubbed the BSR Overlay. This new path impacts Santa Cruz, Bonny Doon, San Lorenzo Valley, Scotts Valley, and communities north to SFO.
