Update to the Runway Rotation Test Schedule
The CDA is publishing a slight change to the Runway Rotation Test schedule for Test 3 Week 5 (Week of August 20th), which is next week. The FAA is working on a navigational aid called a localizer for Runway 9R-27L.For more information about a localizer, please visit the CDA website here.
When the CDA submitted the Test 3 rotation schedule to the FAA, we anticipated construction work on that localizer
during the Week of August 20th, and we identified a construction alternative. We inadvertently forgot to provide the alternative to east flow departures. An updated version of the rotation schedule has been published to address the oversight. The only change to Week 5 is an added green arrow to depict a departure construction alternative, specifically departures on Runway 10L in the Secondary configuration.
All versions of the Fly Quiet rotation scheduled have been updated and will be posted today to the CDA’s project website at www.flychicago.com/flyquiettest
Fly Quiet Runway Rotation Test 3
The Fly Quiet Runway Rotation Test 3 started the evening of July 23, 2017. Test 3 will be in place for a period of 12 weeks. Each new week will begin on Sunday evening at 10 p.m. or after when demand allows for one arrival and one departure runway. The purpose of conducting a third test is to test in real time a runway rotation without the use of Runway 15/33 which is slated to be decommissioned in the spring of 2018.
Complete schedules and more information is available at: www.flychicago.com/flyquiettest.
