Eagle County Regional Airport (EGE) – Eagle County, CO
FAA Releases Holiday Traffic Management Details for Colorado Airports
Nov. 15, 2013
In preparation for the 2013 and 2014 holiday season, the FAA has released a notice outlining plans for managing air traffic in and out of three Colorado airports: Aspen-Pitkin County (ASE), Eagle County Regional (EGE) and Rifle/Garfield County (RIL). This season, the FAA will not be using an air traffic slot reservation program (managed through the e-STMP system); instead the agency will implement a variety of initiatives, including ground delay programs (GDPs), miles-in-trail, required routes and ground stops. Review the FAA notice and additional details on NBAA's winter holidays web page.
Runway Closure at Colorado’s EGE Starting Apr. 15
April 6, 2009
Due to a construction project at Colorado’s Eagle County Regional Airport (EGE), the airport’s only runway, Runway 7/25, will be closed from April 15 to September 1. During the closure, Taxiway A will be reconfigured as Runway 7/25 and only will be open to general aviation for daylight VFR operations. The taxiway will be repainted with non-precision approach markings and will provide 7,400 feet of usable runway. Neither runway edge lights nor precision approach path indicator lights will be available. Only aircraft with a wingspan less than 79 feet and an approach speed of less than 120 knots (category B-II) will be permitted to use the runway. For more information, visit www.nbaa.org/airspace/ege.
