Kentucky lawmaker threatens state's airspace
Former Kentucky governor and current state Sen. Julian Carroll is sponsoring a resolution, requesting the FAA to examine flight paths to Frankfort's Capital City Airport and to restrict air traffic around the grounds of the state's Capitol. Carroll was interviewed recently by a Frankfort radio station about the resolution and said he believes that restricting the airspace is a homeland security issue because terrorists may consider acts outside major cities. Listen online. AOPA Southeastern Regional Representative Bob Minter is working with state aviation officials to persuade Carroll to withdraw the resolution. The Kentucky Legislature reconvenes January 3.
