Date: 2016-10-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation, Department of the Interior, National Park Service
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 (See 77 FR 75254, December 19, 2012), FAA and NPS published an initial list of exempt parks in 2012 and another list in 2014 (See 79 FR 14569-14570, March 14, 2014). This notice provides the annual updated list of parks that are exempt for calendar years 2014 and 2015.
