Biz meets to discuss grounded helicopters

Media to discuss ban with FAA Oct. 5

WASHINGTON — The frustration mounting, a still-rotorless broadcast biz will meet with the Federal Aviation Administration on Oct. 5 to discuss the ongoing ban on news helicopters in skies above major cities, including Los Angeles and Gotham.

Helicopters, a crucial source of traffic news, have been largely grounded since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. In sticking to the ban, the government says news helicopters still pose a security risk.

Station owners counter that they are losing time and money.

In Washington, lobbyists for media and entertainment congloms have begun gently pressing government officials, trying to see if the problem can be resolved.

The ban applies to the country’s top 30 cities.
