TDD Phones at Airport: For deaf travelers, John Wayne Airport has added four pay phones with TDD (Telecommunications Device for the Deaf) service. The north and south baggage carousel areas on the lower level each have one phone; the other two are opposite gates 4 and 11 in the upper departure area. "We are pleased to provide the TDDs to make traveling easier and more convenient for the hearing- and speech-impaired people using John Wayne Airport," said airport director Janice M. Mittermeier.

A July 20 editorial regarding the FAA's review of departure procedures was right on target when it called for "Safety First in Takeoffs." John Wayne Airport, the airlines, the pilots and the FAA all stand together in supporting standards that will enhance safety at JWA and at airports across the country. The editorial misses the mark on a couple of crucial points, though. First, it suggests that the new standards have not yet been implemented because of the noise test at JWA. In fact, as of April 1, 1992, every carrier and every departure at JWA meets or exceeds the proposed safety standards.

The Nov. 26 editorial, "Spending on El Toro Plans Is Premature," is based on the faulty premise that the sole purpose of the county's reuse planning process is to plan an airport at El Toro and that federal funding for that process would be wasted if Measure S passes in March 1996. Nothing could be further from the truth. The county is the federally designated Local Redevelopment Authority. As such it is the county's duty to expeditiously develop a reuse plan which will provide the greatest economic benefit to the Orange County community.

The Commentary by Richard Deeds ("One-of-a-Kind Noise-Abatement Policy Flies in Face of Safety," April 14) was very misleading. First, and most important, the departure procedures used by airlines serving John Wayne Airport have been determined by the Federal Aviation Administration to be safe for scheduled passenger service. The county's concern regarding FAA's current departure procedures stems from a desire to identify and plan for any environmental impacts which may result from changes to those procedures, not from any desire to usurp the FAA's exclusive regulatory and federally mandated responsibility to ensure the safety of this nation's air transportation system.

Two scary but little-known incidents at John Wayne Airport three years ago apparently contributed to the Federal Aviation Administration's desire to change the controversial takeoff procedures at John Wayne Airport. To help satisfy a 1985 noise-limitation agreement between the county and the city of Newport Beach, the FAA agreed to allow certain jetliners on takeoff to reduce their engine power as soon as they attained an altitude of 500 feet.

Cliff Fraizer started an airplane repair service at John Wayne Airport in 1957, shortly after retiring as an airplane mechanic in the Marine Corps, where he served for 22 years. As the owner of Fraizer's A & E Service, he taught 102 people to fly, logged more than 7,000 flight hours and repaired hundreds of planes. But for 25 years, Fraizer has also battled the airport over terms of his lease. In 1989 he was almost kicked out after he refused for a year to pay a rent increase.

Despite protests from John Wayne Airport officials, the Federal Aviation Administration has tentatively decided to move a radar now stationed at El Toro Marine Corps Air Station to Camp Pendleton in San Diego County. In recent letters to the FAA opposing the proposed move of the radar, John Wayne Airport Director Janice M. Mittermeier said she was concerned that reduced radar coverage could mean delays for local travelers because arrivals might have to be stretched over a longer period of time.
