Jackson Hole Airport
A public hearing was held at Jackson Hole, Wyo., on March 17 to address the airport’s intention to ban operations by all Stage 2 aircraft with an mtow of less than 75,000 pounds. If the ban is adopted, willful violations could be punishable by a fine of up to $750 and one year in prison for each violation.
When Congress passed the FAA reauthorization bill late last year, it opened the path for the Jackson Hole, Wyo. airport authority to impose a ban on Stage 2 aircraft (less than 75,000 pounds) without the need for an FAR Part 161 study. Last month the airport issued a notice of proposed rulemaking for its Stage 2 ban.
The FAA plans to rule on the noise-compatibility program proposed for Wyoming’s Jackson Hole Airport (JAC) by May 17. The public-comment period runs through January 18. As part of its proposed rule, the FAA has determined that noise-exposure maps submitted for the facility meet the requirements of FAR Part 150.
