The FAA has told city administrators of Pompano Beach, Fla., that the federal agency will not reconsider its position on city attempts to restrict general aviation operations at Pompano Beach Airpark. When the city attempted to limit or shut down flight training at the public airport, AOPA filed a formal complaint with the FAA. The agency ordered the city to stop its efforts to unfairly restrict GA use of the airport. In response to a request to reconsider its position, the FAA declined. In its legal response, AOPA wrote, “The city has not provided a legitimate or valid reason for the FAA to provide the city with extraordinary special treatment.”
