FAA Dismisses Part 16 Complaint Filed Against the County of Westchester, New York

On June 12, 2008, the FAA dismissed a Part 16 complaint filed against our client, the County of Westchester, New York.  A FBO at the Westchester County Airport alleged that the County had engaged in unjust discrimination against the FBO, granted an exclusive right to other FBOs, and failed to make the Airport as self-sustaining as possible, through the County's policy of distinguishing between larger FBOs and light general aviation FBOs at the Airport. The FAA correctly determined that the County's actions did not violate the Grant Assurances.
