AOPA, pilots fight to prevent incompatible development
AOPA and AOPA Airport Support Network volunteer Paul Rooy are working with local pilots to fight proposed rezoning that would open the way for residential development slightly more than 500 feet from the crosswind runway at Florida’s New Smyrna Beach Airport. In a recent letter to state officials, AOPA points out that the proposed rezoning and addition of 139 housing units so close to the airport would create noise complaints, safety concerns, and other problems for both residents and airport users.
