The Truckee Tahoe Airport District (TTAD) has begun the process of developing new instrument flight procedures and will be asking the public for feedback.
Flight procedures are Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified detailed instructions for an aircraft during specific parts of a flight. They determine the approximate position and altitude of the aircraft as it travels over the ground in both the arrival and departure phases of flight.
The entire process to develop and gain approval through the FAA is expected to take between 18 and 36 months. TTAD has completed the preliminary steps.
