List of Units of the National Park System Exempt From the Provisions of the National Parks Air Tour Management Act
The National Parks Air Tour Management Act (NPATMA) requires the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and National Park Service (NPS) to develop an air tour management plan for units of the national park system where an operator has applied for authority to conduct commercial air tours. The FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 amended various provisions of NPATMA. One provision exempted national park units with 50 or fewer annual flights from the requirement to prepare an air tour management plan or voluntary agreement and requires FAA and NPS to jointly publish a list of exempt parks. By Federal Register notice, FAA and NPS published an initial list of exempt parks in 2012 and subsequent lists for 2013 through 2015. This notice provides the annual updated list of parks that are exempt.
