FAA NOTAM reference Friedman Memorial Airport (SUN)


Significantly higher than normal arrival and departure demand is anticipated between July 2 and July 13 at the Freidman Memorial Airport (KSUN), located in Hailey, Idaho.

Due to single runway operations and limited ATC radar coverage below 13,000 feet, periodic arrival and departure delays may be experienced.  Peak arrival demand is anticipated on July 2-3 and July 7-8, with arrival delays of up to 60 minutes possible on July 7-8 between 1600-2300z.  To avoid possible delays, arrival aircraft on July 7-8 are encouraged to consider arriving SUN prior to or after the above noted times.  Although IFR conditions are rare during this time frame, if they occur, substantial arrival delays with a possibility of diversions should be anticipated.

Peak departure demand is expected to occur on July 12-13 with delays of up to 30-60 minutes possible.

In order to mitigate delays for SUN arrivals/departures during the above noted dates, Salt Lake City ARTCC Traffic Management Unit (801-320-2565) may implement Ground Delay Programs or other Traffic Management Initiatives as warranted.
