Essex County Airport is ideally suited for turboprops and small jets. Air Bound Aviation is planning a minor refurbishment of its facility.

While the major New York City-area GA airports such as Teterboro and Westchester County are certain to receive the lion’s share of private aircraft during next month’s Super Bowl, there is another tower-controlled airport just 12 miles from kickoff, and its FBO is hoping for a big score on game day.

Due to a technicality, the FAA last month dismissed the Part 16 complaint against the city of Venice, Fla., for denying permits for the sole FBO at Venice Municipal Airport to build four new 8,000-sq-ft hangars for business jets, turboprops and helicopters. The Venice Jet Center filed the complaint two years ago, but since then the FBO was bought in receivership by Tristate Aviation and renamed Suncoast Air Center.

The FAA has rejected a request by the city of Venice, Fla., to downgrade the Venice airport reference code (ARC) to B-II from the existing C-II. The ARC’s first letter signifies the aircraft approach category and the Roman numeral relates to airplane wingspan size. The January 8 FAA letter points out that the city believes that the FAA will permit the ARC downgrade based on fewer than 500 operations per year.
