Flight Paths Don't Lie!!
These are maps of departure flights from Miami International Airport's various runways. You know all those new residential units on the River and in Brickell (8,000 being built right now on Brickell) well good luck with the acceleration they have to use to get over your colossal building.
Below is a PDF of 24 hours of flights that took off from MIA on November 4th between NE 50th Street to Vizcaya (East of I95) and I asked for only the noisy ones: the departures. (yes I know there is a typo saying 5th Street). That is why I am saying the windows on the new condos had better be thick, even thicker than hurricane impact.
The noisy cargo planes appear to take off during the night or early morning. Most of the flight paths follow the River and hit Fisher Island big time. Here is what MIA Noise Abatement had to say:
I am attaching a PDF document which contains 24hrs of east flow departure activity from Miami International Airport (MIA). These departures (approximately 650 of them) are represented by green lines originating the runway at MIA, and as you can see graphically when the airport operates towards the east which is approximately 70 percent of the time all areas east of Biscayne Boulevard between NE 50 Street and Rickenbacker Causeway will experience aircraft overflights.
There may be a few areas 10 to 15 blocks south of the Julia Tuttle Causeway (I-195) and north of downtown Miami that may not experience constant overflights such as the areas depicted by heavy green lines but as you can see between these two areas overflights do occur but not as frequent.
|Since the green lines obscure the map...here is one to refer to.|
