FAA to dump nav­i­ga­tion points named for Trump

Cape Breton Post - - WEEKEND -

WASHINGTON - The Fed­eral Avi­a­tion Ad­min­is­tra­tion is dump­ing Don­ald Trump. The agency said Thurs­day it in­tends to re­name three nav­i­ga­tion points near Palm Beach In­ter­na­tional Air­port in Florida that cur­rently are named for the bil­lion­aire and Repub­li­can pres­i­den­tial can­di­date. It's fairly com­mon for the FAA to name such points, which are used by pilots and air traf­fic con­trollers, for lo­cal fig­ures. Trump has a home in Palm Beach. In 2010, a lo­cal air traf­fic con­troller named the points DONLD, TRMMP and UFIRED. The last is a ref­er­ence to the catch­phrase “You're fired” from Trump's re­al­ity TV show “The Ap­pren­tice.”
