Congressman Tom Price weighs in on Hartsfield Class B Airspace Changes.
The Honorable J. Randolph Babbitt
Federal Aviation Administration
800 Independence Avenue, SW
Washington, DC 20591
Dear Administrator Babbitt:
I am writing to express concerns about the proposed airspace change at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and its impact on neighboring Peachtree-DeKalb Airport. Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport is the busiest airport in the United States. As such, many recreational aviators have opted to use surrounding county airports to pursue their passion for flying. Likewise, the surrounding communities of Dunwoody and DeKalb County have voiced concerns over potential noise problems from PDK airport if the airspace change is adopted. It is imperative that the FAA balance the needs of recreational aviators and the communities surrounding these local airports before making a final determination regarding airspace changes.
Tom Price, M.D.
Member of Congress
