The Brazilian Civil Aviation Agency (Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil–ANAC) has certified a new Embraer U.S. distribution center operated by UPS Supply Chain Solutions in Louisville, Ky. The certification is recognized by the FAA.
The former Delta Air Lines terminal at Louisville (Ky.), International Airport is now home to a dedicated U.S. Customs office. Arriving international corporate flights can now taxi directly to customs rather than having passengers wait inside the aircraft while parked on the FBO ramp until customs officials arrive.
Shipping giant UPS and partner Aviation Communication and Surveillance Systems (ACSS) last month submitted the approval paperwork to the FAA for a suite of ADS-B (automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast) avionics intended to streamline busy operations at UPS’s Louisville, Ky. hub.
The FAA is reviewing a proposed noise-compatibility program for Louisville International Airport, Kentucky. The program, being developed under Part 150, is scheduled to be approved or denied no later than May 16. A preliminary review indicates that it meets all the requirements, according to the agency. Comments can be submitted until February 3. For more information, contact the FAA in Memphis at (901) 322-8184.
