The NBAA joined five other stakeholders to file a brief with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, challenging the legality of a "settlement agreement” between the FAA and the city of Santa Monica. The highly unusual agreement, which was concluded last January with no public input and with disregard for numerous mandatory statutory requirements, would restrict and ultimately prohibit aviation access to Santa Monica Municipal Airport. “As this filing makes perfectly clear, NBAA will defend our nation’s critical aviation infrastructure and protect general aviation’s access to airports and airspace,” said NBAA president and CEO Ed Bolen.
