On October 2 NBAA filed a revised Part 16 complaint with the FAA asking the agency to investigate the new landing fees at Santa Monica Municipal Airport (SMO), Calif. The fees were adopted by the Santa Monica City Council on June 10 over the objections of NBAA and went into effect August 1. The new complaint, which replaces the complaint NBAA initially filed in July, includes two new parties joining NBAA in objecting to the new fees: Dassault Falcon Jet and Bombardier Aerospace. Under the FAA’s Part 16 procedures, the City of Santa Monica has approximately three weeks to answer the new complaint. Further pleas are then exchanged over the next 20 days. The FAA then will decide whether to institute a formal investigation.
