When the Center for Environmental Health notified California aviation businesses and avgas refiners of its intent to sue them over lead contamination issues, the entire industry was caught off guard. In this podcast, the General Aviation Manufacturers Association's Walter Derosier tells AVweb that it's too soon to sort out whether the FAA can preempt CEH's challenge because of its sole jurisdiction on everything related to aviation safety. Further, he explains that some of the smaller businesses who potentially could be named in the suit will likely get help from industry associations.
