STAGE 2 - THE PART 13 INFORMAL COMPLAINT PROCESS
14 CFR Part 13 is an "informal" complaint process that allows the general public to file complaints against airport sponsors that refuse to comply with their Grant Assurances. The FAA's Compliance Guidance Letter 2014-01 (July 1, 2014) sets forth the guidance for investigating and addressing compliance matters brought to the attention of Region / Airport District Office (ADO) personnel under FAA Investigative and Enforcement Procedures.
Skydive Tandem Greenville, LLC and Henry Schraeder as an individual filed a Part 13 complaint against the City of Greenville on 28 Jan 2015. Ed Agnew at the Texas Airports Development Office (ADO) acknowledged receipt of the complaint via E-mail the following day. He then sent out a letter dated 1 Dec 2015to all the players promising to answer the complaint within 30 days. The ADO formal response dated December 31, 2015 supported the extremely discriminatory airport standards of the City of Greenville and were a deliberate invitation to file a Part 16 complaint. We can't possibly know what kind of political motivations the ADO had to do this, but so be it. Let the games begin.
IT'S TIME TO DRAIN THE SWAMP!!!!
