New Departure Procedure at Eagle County Highlights NBAA, FAA Collaboration
July 3, 2018
A new instrument departure at Colorado’s Eagle County Regional Airport (EGE), which will not require prior authorization and training – or advanced required navigation performance (A-RNP) capability – will be published later this month, marking the culmination of a successful collaboration between NBAA and the FAA. The new BEVVR RNAV SID for EGE will replace the COTTONWOOD TWO special-departure procedure that non-authorized operators were occasionally using, despite the requirement for prior training and authorization. BEVVR is effective as of July 19, coincident with the removal of COTTONWOOD TWO. Read more.

NBAA Urges Operators to Comment on New Eagle County Departure Procedures
March 9, 2018
NBAA members are encouraged to review and comment by March 28 on a proposed RNAV SID at Colorado’s Eagle County Regional Airport (EGE). The new BEVVR departure came about following collaboration with the FAA to refine departure procedures at the airport. The FAA last year announced plans to implement the APRES departure procedure, which would require an aircraft's flight management system to be able to employ an advanced required navigation performance feature known as scalability. "APRES would be problematic for many business aircraft that lack that capability, especially at Eagle," said Heidi Williams, NBAA’s director for air traffic services and infrastructure. Learn more.

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.

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.
