The Los Angeles City Council Tuesday requested that the city Airport Commission establish a citizens advisory committee on matters arising from the operation of Van Nuys Airport. The move, approved unanimously and without discussion, was initiated by Councilman John Ferraro after he attended a council committee hearing on Van Nuys Airport in April that brought out about 300 people, evenly divided between airport critics and supporters. They clashed over issues such as noise and safety.

Traffic at Van Nuys Airport continued to decline in 1986, but the drop was not as great as in 1985. The airport counted 477,689 flight operations--takeoffs and landings--in 1986, an airport spokesman reported. That represented a drop of about 3% from the 1985 total of 492,382, which was a decline of about 14.5% from the 1984 total of 575,721. The 1986 figure is the lowest since 439,563 operations were logged in 1965.

Describing Van Nuys and other general aviation airports as just as vulnerable to terrorists as larger commercial airports, Los Angeles City Councilwoman Ruth Galanter wants the San Fernando Valley airport to examine its security--something the airport says it has already done. Galanter, whose district includes Van Nuys, heads the council committee that oversees Los Angeles airports. She introduced a motion Tuesday ordering a security plan for Van Nuys Airport.
