HONOLULU (AP) - Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell is urging the Federal Aviation Administration to revoke a waiver it gave to an aerial advertising company allowing it to tow banners in the sky.

Caldwell said Friday aerial advertising is illegal in Honolulu. He says the law prohibiting it has been upheld by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. He’s urging the FAA to immediately revoke its waiver. Caldwell says the waiver applies to federal regulations and not the city’s ordinance.

The mayor sent a letter to the FAA listing the legal decisions upholding Honolulu’s law.

An airplane belonging to aerial advertising company Aerial Banners North was recently spotted over Kailua, East Oahu and the North Shore trailing a banner for its website.

A company attorney has said it has done nothing illegal.
