Court Vacates FAA Ruling on Cape Wind Project

Earlier today the D.C. Court of Appeals vacated an FAA ruling on a proposed offshore wind farm and remanded the matter back to the FAA for further consideration. See Jay Lindsay, Court Says Cape Wind's Offshore Project Won't Fly, USA Today, Oct. 28, 2011 (available here). The FAA had determined that the Cape Wind turbines presented no hazard to the aviation industry, but the Court held that the FAA failed to analyze how the turbines would affect planes flying by visual flight rules.
