Existing Site: Studies in Progress
master plan update
In an effort to establish a solid plan for development of the FMA in the future, the FMAA, operators of the FMA, along with the FAA ADO in Helena, Montana, have elected to undertake a study to update the Master Plan for the Airport.
The Project Elements for this project are as
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.
