"Teterboro Is A Safe Airport"
ANN REAL TIME NEWS: 1805 EDT -- AOPA reacted swiftly to
news that the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey wants to
make big changes at Teterboro Airport, NJ.
"First, despite community concerns, Teterboro is a safe
airport," said Roger Cohen, AOPA Vice President of Regional Affairs
in a statement to ANN.
"AOPA wants to be sure our members
will continue to have access to affordable, GA-friendly airports,
and does not want to see our members squeezed out of Teterboro by
high cost," he continued.
"Finally -- and most importantly -- what happens at Teterboro is
up to the FAA. The Port Authority as airport sponsor plays a major
role, but the ultimate decision on aviation policy and rules
rests solely with the FAA," Cohen concluded.
A statement from NBAA was expected shortly.
