Also: Airport Fight, Aero-Calendar, H145, A321neo, Emirates, Airspace Workshops, Jeppesen

A claim of discrimination has been filed against Contra Costa County, CA by the Vietnam Helicopter Museum, which alleges that the county has discriminated by repeatedly blocking attempts to lease a hangar at Buchanan Field.
