Naples To Appeal FAA Decision On Stage 2 Ban


Despite the March 11 FAA determination that the ban on Stage 2 aircraft operations imposed at Naples Municipal Airport (APF) violates the Federal Aviation Act and federal grant assurances, the City of Naples Airport Authority (NAA) announced that they will continue to enforce the ban. A copy of the NAA statement is available on their Web site. As a leading party in a lawsuit filed shortly after the airport imposed the ban, NBAA advises that it will continue to participate in the proceedings to “ensure that the integrity of the 65 dB noise contour is upheld and to defend the fundamental concept of Federal aviation grant assurances.”
