KCRQ Update: Official Misconduct at Palomar Airport 8/28/04

An FAA enforcement action has developed at KCRQ to fight back for light-GA rights. Local reports are that GA users are in a struggle to resist an allegedly improper no-bid exclusive lease and development agreement that jettisons a major part of light-GA from the airport by eviction/price gouging. The developer is reportedly unqualified and inexperienced who plans to cater to a Jet market that may never materialize. The developer, who is the attorney for the former FBO/leaseholder had his client’s county lease terminated, then had a new lease given to a new company that is controlled by the attorney. The developer reportedly has a long history of not working well with the GA community. This issue is on the fast-track with national actions. As a California pilot, how does this affect you? Watch closely, the outcome could have a big impact on public access to light-GA throughout the state.
