Commercial Air Tour Voluntary Agreement


The FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 allows the FAA and NPS to enter into a voluntary agreement with commercial air tour operators as an alternative to an Air Tour Management Plan (ATMP). A voluntary agreement manages commercial air tour operations over the national park unit and addresses management issues necessary to protect the resources and visitor use of the park without compromising aviation safety or the air traffic control system. The voluntary agreements establish conditions for the conduct of air tours over the park to include routes and altitudes, number of operations, type of aircraft, hours of operations, and reporting requirements.

The Commercial Air Tour Voluntary Agreement is available for public review and comment from Wednesday, December 12, 2017 through Friday, January 26, 2018. Comments can be submitted using the project website at: http://parkplanning.nps.gov/AirTourAgreement under the "Open for Comment" tab.
