LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. —The Los Alamitos Army Airfield on Joint Forces Training Base has issued a noise advisory for Nov. 1-4 as large cargo and passenger planes will be using the site for landing and departure. In addition, preliminary mission-support aircraft might fly into the base as early as the evening of Oct. 30, though the main body is not expected earlier than Nov. 1. The Airlift/Tanker Association (ATA) will be using the installation to meet during their annual convention taking place in the local Southern California area.
During duty hours, noise is expected to increase especially on Nov. 1 and Nov. 4, as aircraft land and depart on these two dates. There is also the potential for an increase in noise outside of the normal operating hours these two days, according to Maj. Jeff Sibley, the airfield general manager.
According to their website, the ATA is dedicated to ensuring that American military forces continue to possess the air mobility capability required to implement U.S. national security strategy. International in scope, the ATA has chapters and members throughout the world. Its membership includes active duty, reserve and retired military personnel, both officer and enlisted, as well as civilian and industrial supporters of the air mobility mission.
