Night Curfew Among Agreed-to Limits at TEB

 - November 15, 2006, 8:26 AM

A night curfew between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. is one of five voluntary measures reached by a government/industry working group to help reduce noise and improve safety at Teterboro Airport (TEB) in New Jersey. The other measures are a ban on operations by Stage 2 aircraft and operations by aircraft over 100,000 pounds; all FBOs will participate in the National Air Transportation Association’s Safety Management System; and airport operators promise to support the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (which owns TEB) in its effort to install a surveillance and perimeter intrusion alert system at a cost of approximately $15 million. It’s expected to take at least 15 months for all these measures to be fully in effect. The working group consists primarily of representatives of TEB operators and the Port Authority. The announcement of the measures was made by Rep. Steve Rothman (D-N.J.), a long-time advocate of curbs at TEB, during a press conference yesterday.
