The original intent of the restrictions, established in 1966 to promote the development of traffic at airports such Washington Dulles, Baltimore and Newark, has ceased to be relevant. Proponents of the perimeters have argued they also help limit noise at DCA and LGA, which are located near heavily populated urban areas.
I don’t think Dulles, BWI and Newark need promotion of development of traffic any more. I mean Dulles is building a new runway to handle the traffic it has. And how the hell can the origin city of a plane control it’s noise?
Yeah, the limitations are archaic and need to be abolished.
