The controversy over Teterboro Airport operations seems to be cooling down. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which owns and operates the airport, has asked for a 10-percent reduction in operations, and Rep. Steve Rothman (D-N.J.), has demanded a 25-percent reduction. On Friday, a working committee, made up primarily of operators on the field and Port Authority officials, met to present a list of recommendations to alleviate community concerns. Port Authority chairman Anthony Coscia, who normally does not attend committee meetings, was present at this one. Following the meeting, all parties in attendance, including the working committee co-chairman National Air Transportation Association president Jim Coyne and general manager of Atlantic Aviation-Teterboro Joe Fazio agreed that the meeting was “very productive.” However, specific recommendations will not be announced until late next month.
