The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) wasted no time in responding to the new Santa Monica ordinance banning the larger, faster “Category C and D” jet aircraft from Santa Monica Airport (SMO), set to go into effect April 24. After the City Council adopted the ordinance late in the evening on Tuesday, March 25 (already after midnight in Washington, D.C.), the FAA issued a nine-and-a-half-page, single-spaced (with 11 footnotes) Order to Show Cause on March 26, directing the City to respond within 10 days and explain why the federal agency should not supplement and expedite an existing investigation to an “initial determination.”
