Airport land use a hot topic in California

Encroachment is the biggest threat to airports nationwide, particularly to those in California. That's why AOPA is working with California legislators to make stronger land-use laws. "Land-use laws are very important to have in place," said Greg Pecoraro, AOPA vice president of regional affairs. "John Pfeifer, our AOPA California regional representative, and I have met with legislators twice so far this year to work on the issue." While Pecoraro was in California, he also met with state officials to prevent a pilot background check proposal from moving forward in the legislature.
