A Matter of Compliance

As the first deadline nears, operators in California are under pressure to bring their LSI fleets into compliance.


Tim Pohle, managing director of US environmental affairs and assistant general counsel at Air Transport Association, which played part in the LSI rulemaking, says its members have been made well aware of the regulation. “I know all the carriers in our group have been familiar with this and planning for it for a long time,” he says.

Yet, there is lingering doubt that all fleets will be ready come January. “One of the concerns we have is that this thing is coming up so fast that we think when everybody figures this out in November, people are going to be going crazy and nobody will be able to help them because it will be too late,” Baxter says.
