The National Civil Aviation Agency (Anac) ordered the closure of air traffic at 28 private airports and helipads across the country, four of which were in the state of Roraima. The act is contained in ordinance 13,708/2023, published in the Official Gazette of the Union (DOU) last Tuesday (30).
The aerodromes excluded from the Anac register are located in the municipalities of Alto Alegre, Amajari, Iracema and Uiramutã. One of them is the Homoxi community trail, known for more than a year as one of the main routes for illegal mining activity in Yanomami Land.

The landing and take-off strip in Uiramutã, identified as Barreirinha, has already been the target of complaints from residents because it passes through the Raposa Serra do Sol Reserve.
An aerodrome is just a landing and take-off runway, which is not necessarily asphalt. It can be land, or even the water surface of a river or lake, as long as it is duly registered as an Aerodrome.
Deletion from registration
Exclusion from the registry is based on Anac Resolution 158, of July 13, 2010. The rule allows the administrative act when the aerodrome is closed for a period equal to or greater than six months or 180 days after the expiry of the registration in the registry. .
The measure is also permitted if risks to operational safety or civil aviation security are identified. As well as in the case of a private aerodrome with news of conflicts with municipal, district, state, federal regulations or environmental agencies.
