New Teterboro flight path delayed for at least 6 weeks

HACKENSACK - A Federal Aviation Administration official says pilots will not begin flying a test route to a New Jersey airport at least another six weeks as the agency revises its flight for a new landing procedure.

The Record newspaper reports Gary Palm, an air traffic manager at Teterboro Airport, made the announcement during a meeting Wednesday.

The test flight path is intended to divert some arriving jets from a path that is close to Hackensack University Medical Center. But the new path along Route 17 has sparked protests from communities that it could affect.

Palm says the new path was introduced on April 4 but only one pilot has flown it. He says the FAA is revising its flight chart to improve its clarity and the marking of landmarks.
