The Federal Aviation Administration is revising a flight chart for a new landing procedure at a New Jersey airport after no pilot tried the approach during part of the six-month testing period.

The flight procedure launched April 4 is intended to alleviate noise for Hackensack residents who live near Teterboro Airport by pushing some planes west over Route 17.

FAA spokesman Jim Peters tells The Record ( ) that pilots could fly the route at their own discretion and none had chosen to.

Peters says the FAA is improving graphics on the flight chart that identify critical markers for pilots approaching the airport visually without the help of instruments.

The FAA published a notice warning pilots of an error on the published chart that gives an incorrect heading to the airport.
