TULARE — The California Pilots Association has filed a lawsuit charging that the city violated state law when it approved Knight Transportation’s plans to construct a large truck terminal near the Tulare airport.

The Pilots Association maintains that the truck terminal and above-ground fuel tanks pose high risks be-cause they are too close to Mefford Field. The project site is west of Highway 99 about 1,300 feet northwest of the airport.
