    The SFBAA has been at work with some of the other aviation organizations (FABA, AOPA, TBAA, NBAA, etc.) to garner support for a Florida House Bill being proposed in the legislature.  We are asking for your help in showing support for this bill in hopes it gets passed in Tallahassee.

    We strongly support House Bill 975 which will act to clarify that that liens claimed under Florida law for labor, services, fuel, or material furnished to an aircraft are not possessory liens and thus, a person claiming such a lien does not need to keep the aircraft in his or her possession to enforce the lien. The bill allows a lienor to enforce a lien for fuel, labor, services, or material furnished to an aircraft even if the lienor releases the aircraft to the owner or operator. This will make it easier for a lienor to recover money owed for maintenance on an aircraft without keeping a commercial aircraft out of service and potentially disrupting commercial air travel. This will also allow the owner or operator of an aircraft on which a lien is claimed to keep using the aircraft while he or she works to satisfy the lien.

    Please take the time to email Governor DeSantis directly to show support for the bill, here is the link: https://www.votervoice.net/NBAA/campaigns/64855/respond

    Feel free to circulate this (and please take the time to click the link to email the Governor). Thanks.

    from: https://nbaa.org/aircraft-operations/airspace/regional/southeast/faa-hosts-meeting-brief-proposed-miami-fort-lauderdale-airspace-changes/

    Business aircraft operators based in Southeast Florida, and frequent users of that region’s airspace, are encouraged to attend a public meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 27 to hear from the FAA Eastern Service Area on planned airspace modifications to Miami, FL, Class B airspace and Fort Lauderdale, FL, Class C airspace.

    Attendees also will have an opportunity to present recommendations and comments on proposed changes.

    Those planning to make comments or give a presentation will be assigned a time slot, and are asked to limit comments to the plan to modify this airspace. All public comments and presentations made at the meeting will be considered in the FAA’s notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

    “NBAA encourages business aircraft operators based in the region or those who frequently use this airspace to attend the meeting and prepare relevant comments,” said Heidi Williams NBAA’s director of air traffic services and infrastructure. “This meeting is a great opportunity to share your expertise from flying in the area and any concerns about the proposed changes with the FAA.”

    The public will have another opportunity to comment after the NPRM is published.

    The meeting will be held at Broward College, South Campus Building 69, Room 133, 7200 Pines Blvd., Pembroke Pines, FL. Learn more about the meeting and how to submit comments.
