Jaime Herrera Beutler Praises FAA Move to Drop Proposed Regulation on Pearson Airfield

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

Jaime Herrera Beutler today applauded the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for dropping its proposed "Pearson Box" restriction for Pearson Field. The FAA issued official notification that it would allow Pearson to continue operating under its current air safety guidelines -- the same guidelines that it has been safely operating under for years.

Jaime and her staff have been closely involved in this issue over the past year, from organizing the initial stakeholder meetings to determine next steps, to communicating directly with the FAA to delay the Pearson Box rule and come to a swift resolution.

"This resolution brings welcome relief for the local pilots, and the local businesses and workers supported by the economic activity from Pearson Air Field," said Jaime. "I appreciate the FAA's willingness to reassess the safety and economic implications of its proposal, and to consider more reasonable solutions. Our community was facing a big challenge, and it's my job to ensure federal agencies are serving our community and helping solve those challenges."
