FAA SEEKS COMMENTS ON REBUILDING FULLERTON RADIO TOWER

The FAA is requesting comments on plans to rebuild a radio tower in the traffic pattern at Fullerton Municipal Airport in Fullerton, California. Two people were killed and the tower was destroyed when a Cessna 182 hit the tower December 19, 2004. “Building a 760-foot-tall antenna tower in the traffic pattern of an airport is an obvious hazard,” said Melissa Rudinger, AOPA vice president of regulatory affairs. AOPA encourages members to comment on the proposal before September 1. Comments must address the effect this action would have on aviation in the surrounding area and provide detailed support of the negative impacts. Comments must contain “Aeronautical Study No. 2005-AWP-734-OE” and can be sent to: Federal Aviation Administration Western Pacific Regional Office, P.O. Box 92007-AWP-520, Los Angeles, CA 90009-2007.
