Instrument Procedures Feasibility Study
The Friedman Memorial Airport Authority (FMAA) remains committed to providing reliable service for both commercial airlines and general aviation users of the Friedman Memorial Airport (SUN). A primary factor impacting reliability of the airport is the ability of aircraft operators to access the airport during times of Instrument Metrological Conditions (IMC). With the help of airport engineers and consultants, the FMAA will develop a study that will identify the instrument procedures improvements that may be feasible for FMA.
RSA Improvements - Project Formulation
The Friedman Memorial Airport Authority (FMAA) recently completed a Technical Analysis
and upon review of the Analysis, the conclusion of the community and
the FAA was that Alternative 6 would be pursued, with additional future
planning to consider elements of Alternative 7 that are necessary to
accommodate airport uses displaced by construction of Alternative 6. The
purpose of this formulation is to develop a phasing and funding plan to
implement the projects identified in Alternative 6 that are necessary
to achieve Runway Safety Area (RSA) compliance.
RSA Improvements - Phase 1
The relentless forward progrss continues as we implement the plan to address FAA design deficiencies at Friedman Memorial Airport. The RSA Improvements - Phase 1 project includes elements which represent the first step toward a Runway Safety Area at the airport that complies with FAA RSA standards. In order to provide a compliant RSA, Taxiway B must be relocated 70 feet to the west. In order to clear the way for the relocation of Taxiway B, multiple other operational areas must be relocated as well.
