F.A.A. to Drop Donald Trump-Related Navigation Codes

Three navigation coordination points above Palm Beach International Airport that had been named in honor of Donald J. Trump will be renamed, the Federal Aviation Administration said Wednesday.

“In general, the F.A.A. chooses names that are noncontroversial,” said an agency spokeswoman, Laura Brown.

A growing number of businesses have been severing ties with Mr. Trump since the Republican presidential candidate made derogatory remarks about Mexican immigrants in a campaign speech. That includes NBC, which aired Mr. Trump’s show, “The Apprentice.”

In 2010, an air traffic controller who was a fan of Mr. Trump’s reality show and its catchphrase, “You’re fired,” named some of the navigation points that pilots use for takeoff from the airport DONLD, TRMMP and UFIRD.

He wasn't talking about a country, or a mountain, or a bridge, he was talking about people

The FAA

Date of Break-Up: July 9

Announcement: On Thursday, the FAA announced it would be renaming “DONLD,” “TRMMP” and “UFIRD”—three navigational points (or “fixes”) near Palm Beach International Airport named in Trump’s honor by an air traffic controller in 2010.

“The FAA is taking steps to rename three ‘fixes’ near PBI,” said the agency in a statement. “In general, the FAA chooses names that are non-controversial and relate to the area in which the fixes are located.”
