New Okaloosa County air regulations
OKALOOSA COUNTY - Okaloosa County could soon have new rules about where planes take off and land.
The final vote will come at a public hearing tomorrow night.
In the last year, one helicopter tour company has operated from Destin Commons from a barge near Crab Island and now in the middle of Destin Harbor.
Another company wanted to operate near a major subdivision.
County planners say they're also concerned about aircraft like banner planes and seaplanes.
