"It was an honor to witness firsthand the operations responsible for monitoring and directing the planes as they fly over our communities. The tireless work and consummate professionalism of Air Traffic Manager Siewert and his team at JFK help ensure the safety of millions of passengers, as well as the thousands of families living around this major transit hub," said Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder.

Last week, Goldfeder visited the control tower at JFK Airport Terminal 4 to meet with FAA Air Traffic Manager Siewert to discuss the recently-announced completion of
upgrades to north-south Runway 4L-22R, the agency's efforts to respond to multiple high-profile drone flyovers in surrounding airspace, and community concerns over airplane noise. Siewert and his team also gave the Assemblyman a briefing on preparations for the arrival of Pope Francis in the city, and President Obama's visit to the United Nations.

"JFK airport is as much a part of our community as any other institution," concluded
Goldfeder. "That's why having strong partners in the FAA and the Port Authority is so important to ensuring our families' quality of life issues are addressed."
