BELOW is a copy
of the text from a email received from the Airport Director 4-8-2011. This
obviously says the situation will be worse for about 90 days. Hopefully
all these airplanes will be able to stay out each other's paths. The last time
they did this in Daytona about two years ago there was no advance notice.
I observed large airliners going from north to south over Ormond Beach and
called and found out it was a similar situation about fixing a runway in
Daytona. Then, there was a article in the newspaper for everyone.
I'd like you to
be aware of some activity in Daytona Beach that will affect air traffic here in
Ormond Beach. Beginning this Sunday - April 10, 2011 - the primary runway at
Closure of the primary runway in Daytona Beach will require commercial airline traffic to use Runway 16/34 (the north/south runway) when arriving at or departing from DBIA. As a result, large commercial aircraft will be seen periodically ascending and descending in the skies above Ormond Beach until the primary runway at DBIA has been re-opened for normal operations.
I have sent a message to all flight schools in the region, requesting that all flight instructors and student pilots remain particularly mindful of our voluntary noise abatement procedures, in light of the temporary increase in traffic from DBIA.
