Next month, NBAA tells ANN that the
FAA is planning to implement STMPs (Special Traffic Management
Programs) for airports in Rochester, New York and Indianapolis,
STMPs are implemented for special events that attract thousands
of people and aircraft to participating airports. To properly
manage the flow of arrivals and departures for these events, the
FAA requires users to make arrival and departure reservations to
and from these airports.
In anticipation of heavy air traffic in conjunction with the
Brickyard 400 auto race, slot reservations will be required at
Indianapolis International Airport (IND) and Eagle Creek Airport
(EYE) between Friday, August 1 and Sunday, August 3.
Special procedures also will be in effect from Sunday, August 10
through Sunday, August 17 at seven airports near Rochester, New
York, where the PGA Championship golf tournament will be held.
