ENHANCED CLASS B ELIMINATED, PART 91 ACCESS TO JFK/LGA RESTORED
On December 19, the FAA issued several NOTAMs that eliminated Enhanced Class B airspace and reduced the TFRs in Washington, DC, New York and Boston, restoring Part 91 access to Kennedy (JFK) and LaGuardia (LGA) airports. NBAA is encouraged by the momentum these changes provide, and is accelerating efforts to secure business aviation access to Reagan National Airport (DCA), relax restrictions on foreign-registered aircraft and increase the number of "portal" countries through which international flights may proceed.

ISLIP TOWN BOARD WILL NOT ENFORCE "NOISE SURCHARGE" AT ISP
In a December 5, letter to the FAA, the Islip, NY Town Board agreed to permanently not enforce the ordinance it adopted in September, which would have imposed a "noise surcharge" of $50,000 per flight on all aircraft operations at Long Island MacArthur Airport (ISP) between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 6:30 a.m. The Town responded only after the FAA threatened to issue a notice of apparent violation under Part 161, which could have led to proceedings to terminate Islip's eligibility for AIP grant funds and authority to impose or collect PFCs.
