ACT

AIRPORT COMMUNITY TEAM 

WHAT IS THE AIRPORT COMMUNITY TEAM (ACT): ACT is a monthly virtual public forum established by the General Manager to gather interested airport users and District constituents to discuss items of public interest and provide information regarding activities and programs of TTAD. ACT is meant to be a free flow of ideas and information between the District, airport users, and the general public. ACT is intended to inform and advise on policy and is not intended to set Policy of the District. Setting District policy is reserved for the Board of Directors. ACT is a method for the District to convey information to stakeholders and also a means to receive, consider, and convey public comment and sentiment regarding topics of interest to the Board of Directors at their monthly Board of Director meetings. Activities and information from ACT Forums will be reported monthly to the Board of Directors. ➤ ACT Interview 


NEXT MEETING

Wednesday, September 14, 2022 –  Flight Procedure Development (Update) 
Flight procedures are detailed, FAA certified 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. Because the FAA has authority over all flight activity in the air, airports are required to use a specified set of criteria to develop new procedures that allow the airport some influence over the location of arriving and departing aircraft.

At Truckee Tahoe Airport, the development of new procedures for Runway 11 and Runway 29 will help pilots to fly more strategic flight paths—utilizing instrumentation to fly over more open space than homes. These potential flight procedures consider the region’s terrain, neighborhoods, and the most efficient manner to bring pilots in and out of Truckee Tahoe Airport.

These draft flight procedures are part of the TTAD’s “three-legged stool” to increase safety and efficiency at the airport. In addition to establishing an air traffic control tower at the airport, the recent deployment of an  Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) system, which provides highly accurate, real-time surveillance data for aircraft in the Truckee Tahoe region, has provided the system requirements needed to update its flight procedures.

These draft flight procedures are designed for planes that utilize instrument flight rules (IFR) and will likely apply to less than 30% of all traffic. The entire process to develop and gain approval from the FAA is expected to take between 18 and 36 months.
