Latitude 33 Aviation Receives Los Angeles Award for Third Consecutive Year

July 20, 2017 – Latitude 33 Aviation was recently presented with the Van Nuys Airport Friendly Flyer Award for achieving outstanding compliance with the airport’s Fly Friendly program for calendar year 2016. Although the program has stringent requirements and only a small number of private jet operators flying out of the Los Angeles area airport qualify, this is the third consecutive year Latitude 33 Aviation has received the award.

The voluntary Van Nuys Airport Fly Friendly/Quiet Departure Program for jet aircraft was established in 1994 to address the community’s concerns regarding jet aircraft noise in neighboring areas. The annual Friendly Flyer Award program was established in 2012 to acknowledge those operators who complied with all noise abatement policies and procedures and achieved the highest level of success in adhering to the Fly Friendly/Quiet Departure Program.

The award winners were determined using the following criteria:

1. At least 60 southbound jet departures during 2017
2. 99% or greater compliance with the no early turn and the Quiet Jet Departure Programs
3. No violations of noise ordinances:

  • Noise abatement and curfew regulation
  • Non-Addition rule
  • Noisier Jet phase-out

This year’s winners were recognized at a luncheon at the Airtel Plaza Hotel in Van Nuys. As one of the few Argus Platinum rated operators, Latitude 33 strives to provide the absolute best of what the private aviation industry has to offer. This award demonstrates Latitude 33 Aviation’s commitment to being an outstanding community and industry partner.

Latitude 33 Aviation has aircraft available for private jet charter based at Van Nuys Airport, as well as Hawthorne, John Wayne/Orange County, Long Beach, Carlsbad/San Diego, and Fresno, California. Van Nuys Airport is dedicated to noncommercial air travel and is committed to being a good neighbor by continuing to require stricter standards for voluntary noise abatement measures.
