In cooperation with MSP Fair Skies, SMAAC held a public meeting on June 16th, re-opening discussion of MSP flight operations.  To allow more public attention to the issues and the details and possible remedies, the Forum was continued for 6 weeks as a blog at this site.

HIGHLIGHTS of the public meeting:   

Congressman Nolan will help SMAAC and MSP Fair Skies meet with FAA officials in
Washington DC and Minnesota.
State Senators Scott Dibble, Jeff Hayden and Patricia Torres-Ray, State
Representative Frank Hornstein and other Legislators will pursue changes in how Minnesota airports
are planned and managed to meet economic needs, protect public health and welfare, and protect the environment.
Citizens will demand that the MSP long-tem comprehensive plan LTCP is more than a facilities plan
serving the airlines.  If MSP is to be operated in the public interest goals must be openly stated and prioritized.

Our goals are:

Safe and affordable air travel for origin and destination air travelers,

Provide for economic growth needs, including non-aviation jobs,

Support State, County, municipal, and school districts financially.

Protect public health and the environment by reducing noise and pollution from overflights,
