The FAA has reduced from six to three the number of hourly slots available to general aviation at New York LaGuardia Airport. Ed Bolen, president and CEO of the National Business Aviation Association, contends that the FAA is focusing on operational limitations at the airport instead of on ways to increase its capacity. "Although general aviation does not contribute to congestion at LaGuardia...the FAA seems to be most interested in adopting measures to limit operations for all aviation segments at this and other New York City airports," he said. The National Air Transportation Association pointed out that business jet operators barely contribute to the airport's congestion.
