Van Nuys

2019 Van Nuys Airport Friendly Flyer Award Winners

Each year the Friendly Flyer Award is presented to jet operators that meet or exceed our VNY noise abatement program criteria during the award year.  The voluntary Fly Friendly/Quiet Departure Program for jet aircraft was first established at VNY in 1994 to address the community’s concerns regarding jet aircraft noise in neighboring areas.  LAWA created the “Friendly Flyer” award in 2012 to acknowledge operators who complied with all noise abatement policies and procedures and had the highest level of success in adhering to the voluntary No Early Turn and Fly Friendly/Quiet Departure Programs.
