USNPS proposes big cuts for air sightseeing tours over — and some bans

Proposed air tour management plans for units of the National Park System released Monday range from a ban on the overflights to greatly reduced numbers of allowed flights, targets that were established with input from Indigenous stakeholders and the public at large.

Air tour bans that would take effect if the proposals become final after a 30-day comment period would apply to Badlands National Park and Mount Rushmore National Memorial, both in South Dakota, while Haleakalā and Hawai'i Volcanoes national parks in Hawai'i call for reduced numbers of the flights.
