Without a quorum, the Airport Commission's Monday meeting has been canceled.
It was supposed to review a controversial, noise-reducing proposal to pay Santa Monica-based flight schools to conduct repetitive takeoffs and landings elsewhere. Now, the proposal is on the City Council's Tuesday agenda.
Airports neighbors and community leaders in neighboring cities with airports had asked that the commission review the proposal before the City Council. The plan was to roll out the incentives starting in July for a six month testing period.
Under the proposal, participating flight schools would receive $150 for each flight that resulted in a minimum of four takeoffs and four landings conducted at other airports on weekends and federal holidays. City staffers said it has the potential of resulting in up to 4,800 fewer takeoffs and landings during the test period.
The cost of the program over six months was estimated at $90,000.
The commission's next regularly scheduled meeting July 23.
