NBAA objects to 2,000-ft tower construction

October 11, 2007, 6:45 AM

In a letter to the FAA, NBAA president Jack Olcott said the association  “adamantly objects to the construction of the proposed 2,000-foot tower at Bayonne, New Jersey. The enormous height of the tower, which exceeds the allowable criteria of Part 77, coupled with its proposed location in the middle of the busiest terminal airspace in the world, would unquestionably create conditions not conducive to the safe and efficient use of airspace.” NBAA is not only concerned about the adverse affect the tower would have on visual approaches to Runway 29 at Liberty Newark Airport, but it believes that compromising approaches into Newark will have a “negative domino effect” on operations at Teterboro Airport.
