FAA to Provide
Upgrade to Electrical Lines
In the interests of
maintaining the continuing standard for operational safety at VNY, the FAA has
announced that it will be implementing an improvement project which involves
upgrading the electrical lines that support the airport’s navigational aids and
air traffic control systems.
This project will see improvements made to the existing lines which have reached
their usable life expectancy. The project will begin on September 22 and last
approximately 8 weeks. The Airport Operations department and the FAA developed
a plan involving 7 nighttime runway closures of 16R, planned between the hours
of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. This plan will allow peak daytime operations and airport
services to continue without interruption.
The planned night-time
16R closure dates are: September 26-27 and October 10-14. VNY is committed to
working in partnership with the tenants while supporting the FAA’s upgrades to
our critical systems, and upholding the standard of safety and efficiency at
VNY’s world-class general aviation facilities.
