Updated July 27, 2016

Significant air traffic volume is expected at Friedman Memorial Airport (SUN) in Hailey, ID for the 2016 Friedman Memorial Airport Event, to be held July 5 to 10, 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.
