Shutdown Whiteman Airport Coalition Logo


As the convening organization with the Shutdown Whiteman Airport Coalition, Pacoima Beautiful is calling on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors to Shutdown Whiteman Airport and prioritize the public safety of Pacoima residents living under the flightpath. Not many people from our neighborhood own airplanes housed at Whiteman. Not many people from our community work at Whiteman. Not many youths from our community are invited to participate in airport programs. While airplanes continue crashing in the neighborhood. Our health gets worse from breathing emissions from Whiteman airplanes. The airplanes flying at all hours impact the quality of our lives. Los Angeles County is the owner of Whiteman Airport and has the power to decide the airport’s fate.

Join the call to shutdown Whiteman airport, show your support by signing the petition today.
