ANN Special Report: Colorado NIMBYs Defeated... For Now

Vicious Campaign Against Skydiving Operation By Small, But Vocal, Group Loses Court Case

News/Analysis by ANN CEO/Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell Those of us who work and play in the aviation world have seen it all before... a small GA airport falls victim to complaints as more and more homes are built/sold/occupied around it and a number of the homeowners (and not necessarily all that many, percentage-wise) decide that their own sensibilities take precedence over those they would seek to displace, silence, even destroy... despite the fact that the airport was (in most cases) there long before they arrived.

XPRIZE notes that they continue to see substantial progress from their teams, and after months of discussion, they have decided to provide additional time for teams to plan and make arrangements for a future launch.
