Quiet Flying is Good Business
Welcome to Friedman Memorial Airport
Whether you are visiting the Wood River Valley, returning home to Idaho or leaving for other destinations, it is the Airport's intent and desire that all Airport Patron experiences are beneficial and pleasant. The Friedman Memorial Airport Authority and community agree that airports and communities can co-exist in close proximity to one another through simple understanding, mutual consideration and cooperation.
In response to community concerns, Friedman Memorial Airport has a voluntary noise abatement program applicable to all aircraft types known as the "Good Neighbor Flying Program". The program works extremely well through the agreement by aviation and community that just a few simple operating guidelines do, in fact, make the community and the airport "Good Neighbors."
The FMA asks that:
THE FMA REQUIRES THAT: Auxiliary Power Units (APUs) NEVER be operated in excess of 30 minutes. APUs must usually be activated approximately 20 minutes prior to jet departures. When jet departures are scheduled, please arrive for that departure at the scheduled time. If you are late for that departures time, aircraft crews will likely be forced to shut down APUs and your departure will be delayed when you do arrive at the airport.
By subscribing to these simple guidelines and requirements, the aviation community and local Wood River Valley communities will continue to appreciation and respect one another's needs and requirements. The Airport Authority thanks you all pilots for their consideration and wishes everyone a wonderful stay in Idaho and pleasant journeys.
