Updated July 8, 2015

Significant air traffic volume is expected at Friedman Memorial Airport (SUN) in Hailey, ID for the 2015 Friedman Memorial Airport Event, to be held July 7 to 12, 2015, in Sun Valley, ID.

Due to limited overnight/extended parking, is it likely that "drop and go only" operations will be initiated as needed at various times throughout the event. During periods of "drop and go only" operations, operators will need to relocate to another airport after dropping the passengers at SUN. Operators should contact Atlantic Aviation to confirm current ramp capacity situation.

There will be no FAA E-STMP air traffic reservation program for this event. Operators can expect the possibility of traffic management initiatives such as ground delay programs, miles-in-trail and ground stops if needed as well as structured routes in/out of SUN during the conference.

Friedman Memorial Airport management, Atlantic Aviation FBO and the SUN air traffic control tower have prepared detailed letters to pilots. These letters include the following details:

  • Parking arrangements
  • Expected peak traffic dates and times
  • Airport noise abatement procedures
  • FBO parking and ground handling procedures during the conference
