With already existing air traffic from Republic and MacArthur, expected increase in air traffic due to expansion at MacArthur, and now this proposed expansion at Republic, those of us in the surrounding areas are definitely going to see our quality of life deteriorate even further than it already has due to air traffic noise that has already infiltrated our areas over the past few years. Gone are the days of enjoying quiet conversation both in our homes and our backyards, being able to enjoy an evening television show without the drone and rumble of planes passing overhead (sometimes creating panic due to the extensive roaring and rattling they create--at times, you think one is going to crash land on your home), and nights of peaceful and uninterrupted sleep. Those of us that are already so negatively affected by this issue, need to speak up in an attempt to prevent this situation from getting even further out of hand. Better to know that you did all you could to prevent it from happening, than to sit back and watch it happen only to complain after the fact when it's way too late!

Build the hangars, but leave the Museum's alone. That hangar itself has historical significance & dates back to Republic Aviation

McShane is a big contributor to Levy, just check the Board of Elections Contributor site.- I think McShane's mother is on Levy's campaign payroll. This stinks. Sheltair is a big operator out of Florida - go to Jacksonville Airport - they've really expanded it.
This will happen here and in Westhampton, where Sheltair just took over as the fixed base operator from ....you guessed it, McShane.

Hey listen, that airport was prabably there before YOU moved in. YOU should have checked out the neighborhood before you moved in, now you dont want the airport to operate. If you lived near the airport years ago you would have heard the f-105's and the A-10's loud and clear OR you must have a hearing problem also.. One thing you can do is MOVE and bring Helen with YOU !

The airport has been there for a long time, why do people think that because they moved next to an airport the airport should shut down?

The corporate jet traffic is there anyway, let them build the necessary facilities and add jobs so they can properly maintain it. Long Island is losing jobs and when someone wants to add jobs and significant amounts of money into the local economy it seems that unless local politicians have direct control it is no good.

No problem building the hangers - and you're right the corporate traffic is already there - but do it above board - do it with a Master Plan in place so you have some reasonable planning - and keep the community involved and give them input. No sweetheart deals. Just look at Islip.
