Flight Operations Prohibited Within 10 nm of Nuclear Plants Until Nov.
As expected, the FAA has issued a
NOTAM that prohibits all general aviation flight operations below 18,000
feet MSL within 10 nm of any nuclear power plant and several other
strategic facilities. The NOTAM is effective now until November 7, 2001.
No operations except scheduled airline and emergency operations will be
allowed at any airports within these 10-mile radii. Visit the EAA website to see the complete NOTAM,
which includes a listing of all affected facilities.
EAA is working
to update the EAA Flight Planner maps to show the restricted areas and
will have them available on the web as soon as possible. EAA cautions all
pilots to check with their flight service office for the latest
information, and to know and follow all current NOTAMs before beginning a
flight. EAA Flight Planner, a free service for EAA members, provides
current NOTAM and TFR information. EAA is following the situation closely
and will report new findings immediately on the EAA website at www.eaa.org.
NOTAM Prohibits VFR Flight Within 30 nm of Yankee Stadium During
World Series Games
The FAA issued a
NOTAM today that prohibits VFR flight operations below 18,000 feet MSL
within a 30-nautical mile radius of Yankee Stadium during scheduled World
Series games. The NOTAMS will be in effect from 6:45 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. for
games scheduled Oct. 30-31. The NOTAM will also be in
force if a game 5 is played on Thursday, Nov. 1.
NAFI Opposes Proposed
Florida Flight School Legislation
The National Association of Flight Instructors (NAFI) is
vehemently opposed to pending Florida state legislation that would place
undue burdens on the state’s flight instruction industry. The two bills,
introduced in the Florida House, are H.B. 5-b and H.B. 69-b.
5-b would require state and federal registration by all flight schools and
instructors, in-depth record-keeping, and annual reporting to the state
costing each flight school an estimated $2,000 per year.
so-called “Florida Flight Training School Licensing Act of 2002,” H.B.
69-b would require owners and students—including all U.S. citizens for all
certificates, including recreational and maybe even ultralights—to be
fingerprinted and undergo criminal record checks, plus make instructors
and students to furnish five reference letters to the state prior to
conducting business or receiving flight training. Prohibitive fees are
also called for in the second bill, including a $300 application fee; a
$500 initial license fee; $150 background check/fingerprint fee; and a
biannual $500 license renewal fee.
"NAFI opposes this legislation
because it is overly burdensome to the flight training industry in the
state of Florida and will not effectively deal with the problem at hand,”
said NAFI President and CEO Sean Elliott. “NAFI feels that these proposed
restrictions on flight training would affect all flight students, not just
alien trainees. The implication that flight schools and flight training in
the U.S. or in the state of Florida are responsible for the Sept. 11th
tragedy is ludicrous. Florida flight trainers did not allow alleged
terrorists into the country.”
NAFI also urges members in Florida to
legislators and voice their strong disapproval of these two bills.
NAFI is in full support of the recently formed Florida Flight Training
Alliance (FFTA) and will attend its inaugural meeting Nov. 14 in Lakeland,
Fla. For more information on FFTA, please contact the NAFI office at
