We are not looking at any land acquisition programs for safety area compliance or runway extensions.

The FAA and their own analyst determined it is not feasible to implement it at Midway.

Now that there is a congressional mandate on the industry, this is when industry will look up and look towards new technology in the industry.

We are not going to go on an aggressive land-acquisition program (to build runway safety areas). Instead of busting up stable neighborhoods, the city will continue to work with the FAA to find the appropriate technologies and safety measures at an airport that has been hailed as one of the safest in the nation.

We've just completed our technical analysis recently that concluded that this was a feasible option for Midway, coupled with the improvements that the manufacturers made into the product to make the material more resistant to jet blast.
