The National Park Service (NPS) and the FAA are rewriting the rules and regulations for air tours over national parks. It is clear from the plans already introduced that the NPS aims to cut back flights to such a degree that it will no longer be economically feasible for air tour companies to stay in business. We need your help submitting public comments on the NPS plans for two Hawai’i national parks:
- Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park
- Haleakalā National Park
You can submit an HAI-endorsed, prewritten comment directly to the NPS in three simple steps. Click this link or text COMMENT to 40649 to submit your comments.
HAI has provided an overview of the problems with the NPS air tour management plans (ATMPs) process. For more information on ATMPs, please visit rotor.org/ATMP.
Thank you for taking action to defend our valuable air tour industry. HAI appreciates your dedication to the vertical lift community.
HAI Vice President of Government Affairs
