FAA Plan for Boise Airport on Hold

Federal Aviation Administration has put a temporary hold on plans to move part of Boise Airport's air-traffic control system to Salt Lake City.

"If the Boise TRACON is moved to Salt Lake City," the letter said, "controllers that are familiar with the unique terrain and the operational peculiarities associated with a traffic mix this varied will become a thing of the past. Familiarity with the Boise operation will be lost. Air traffic delays and increased collision potential will be the real results of the new environment."C
