Faa Settlement Agreement

Recognizing the city`s authority to make land use decisions, the agreement allows Santa Monica to reduce the airport`s only runway to 3,500 feet from its current length of 4,973 feet. The City is required to enter into lease agreements with private aviation service providers to ensure the continuity of these services until the runway is shortened and it decides to provide these services itself. “The collaboration between the FAA and the city has enabled us to achieve this innovative solution that resolves many years of legal and regulatory litigation,” said Michael Huerta, FAA Administrator. “This is a fair solution for all concerned, as it strikes the right balance between the public interest in making local decisions about land use practices and their interests in safe and effective air services.” “It is imperative that everyone meets the high safety standards of our aviation system,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. “This agreement is an important step in ensuring that Boeing fully complies with all applicable compliance standards in the future.” WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Transportation`s Federal Aviation Administration today announced a comprehensive agreement with Boeing Commercial Airplanes (BCA) that resolves several ongoing and possible enforcement cases. As part of the agreement, BCA is committed to implementing and improving several certification processes to further improve airworthiness and continued compliance with all BCA products. The agreement regulates two open cases and 11 other cases opened in recent years. Over the next five years, BCA will have to expect additional penalties of up to $24 million if it does not meet its obligations under the agreement. WASHINGTON – The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the City of Santa Monica, California, have reached a settlement agreement to settle long-standing disputes over the future of the Santa Monica airport. The agreement requires the city to maintain the continued and stable operation of the airport for 12 years until December 31, 2028, and the city has the right to close the airport.
