Presque Isle County to send letter to FAA

ROGERS CITY – The Presque Isle County Board of Commissioners voted Friday to send a letter to the Federal Aviation Administration in support of its airport, which could lose GPS landing capability if a proposed wind farm is built in Moltke Township.

The project would feature 66 wind turbines, each towering 574 feet above the ground, and each would probe into restricted airspace, the FAA determined recently.

Nine of the towers would be in the line of approach for aircraft, which the FAA deems a risk for pilots. The commissioners hope the developer, SStar Ridge-Run Energy, will work with the county to find a feasible solution that allows the project to move forward without any ill effects on the airport.
