Airport Parking Project

UPDATE: The Parking Lot portion of this project is complete.  There will be some new signage and a small construction project, but nothing that will effect parking.


The RNAV-16 remains NOTAM’d NA (which unfortunately means “Not Authorized”).  The approach is available (here) from the FAA.  We’re working to address NAVAIR Canada’s concerns about the Missed Approach altitude and impacts to feeder fix obstruction clearance.  Whatever the ultimate solution, it will require being re-checked by flight check.  As such, it’s probably not a quick solution.

New and Noteworthy:

If you have airport pictures you would be willing to share, please email them to me at orcasairport@rockisland.com.
