Following a four-day hearing in March, the FAA has ruled that a proposed ban on some jets at California's Santa Monica Airport "unjustly and unreasonably" discriminates against certain types of aircraft. Banning corporate aircraft with landing speeds greater than 139 miles per hour "is not consistent with the city's obligation to make the airport available for public use ... to all types, kinds and classes of aeronautical activity," FAA hearing officer Anthony Palladino said in his ruling.
