A ban by the coastal California city of Huntington Beach on all aerial advertising flights in its airspace is believed to be the first of its kind in the U.S. The law–should it survive legal challenges, one of which was filed even before the ordinance became effective on October 16–could set a precedent with profound implications for general aviation.
Huntington Beach, California
A ban enacted in September by the southern California coastal city of Huntington Beach on all aerial advertising flights in its airspace, which could have had profound implications for general aviation, has been repealed before being enforced. The law, believed to be the first attempt by a local jurisdiction in the continental U.S. to regulate airspace use, was rescinded in a secret city council session in November.
