‘Runway Safety Area’ not required at Great Barrington AirportMore Info
To the Editor:
This is to address all of the Great Barrington Airport neighbors who think that there is a “Runway Safety Area.” A Runway Safety Area is something that pertains to “Airports serving scheduled air carrier operations in aircraft designed for more than 9 passengers but less than 31 passenger seats,” FAA Title 14 CFR Part 139. So therefore no abutting neighbor to Great Barrington Airport owns any “Runway Safety Area” because the Great Barrington Airport is unable to accommodate aircraft that large. Nor does GBR currently service scheduled air carrier operations.
