Enviros line up to oppose USNPS plan to allow air tours over Olympic, Mount Rainier, other parks

Seattle, WA – A proposal that could allow an increase in low-flying commercial air tours around Washington’s most famous national parks threatens to disturb the park’s natural sounds, disrupt wildlife and spoil park visits, according to a broad group of environmental organizations in the region.


The National Park Service (NPS) is currently drafting an air tour management plan (ATMP) for a number of national parks, including Mount Rainier and Olympic. This plan would permit – and potentially increase ­­– low-flying commercial air tours over Washington’s most well-known national parks.
