Late yesterday, Brazil’s civil aviation minister was expected to finally sign an authorization for the development of the Catarina Executive Airport in São Roque (see page 12). Meanwhile, also in the São Paulo area, plans to develop the city’s first privately owned business aviation airport appear to have hit a roadblock with local authorities recently refusing a construction permit for Aerodromo Privado Rodoanel (Beltway Private Airport) on the grounds that the project is not part of the city’s master development plan and because of concerns about a nearby reservoir.
