FAA Says Oakland Raiders Las Vegas NFL Stadium Review Process Not Done
The Federal Aviation Administration’s media relations office has informed me that the review process for the planned Oakland Raiders Las Vegas NFL Stadium is not done. What I was told is this:
“The team (Oakland Raiders) filed for FAA review of their project in June. We began our review at that time.
We look at whether a project could pose a hazard to aircraft or to navigation aids.
There is no specific timetable for a review. It depends on whether we identify any issues and, if so, how long it takes to resolve them.
We also review proposed crane locations and heights.”
And this: “You would be correct in saying that. As for your second question: We conduct our reviews as quickly as we can. But our top priority is determining whether a proposed project could pose a hazard to aircraft or navigation aids and, if so, whether and how the hazard can be mitigated. We do not sacrifice accuracy and thoroughness for speed.”
