FAA Reviewing Norwood Airport Response to Boston Exec Helicopters Complaint

 - August 12, 2014, 2:40 PM

The FAA is reviewing a response from Norwood (Mass.) Airport officials to allegations they violated federal obligations requirements and discriminated against Boston Executive Helicopters. In a complaint filed in May under the provisions of FAR Part 13, Boston Executive Helicopters said the airport’s actions “were clearly done to prevent” it from building an FBO. In its July 10 response, the Norwood Airport Commission, the airfield’s operating authority, denied the allegations, claiming they are “lacking in merit” and “requests the FAA take no action.”
