Airport Management and the Airport Operations Team want to reach out to you regarding the 2017 Airport Emergency Full Scale Exercise being held on June 14 at IDA. With your cooperation, we know this will be successful exercise.
As you may be aware, the Federal Aviation Administration requires that all Airport certificated under FAR Part 139, which includes IDA, must perform every three years a full scale emergency exercise that tests the Airport emergency plan and the response of those agencies that would assist in the event of an aircraft disaster.
The Idaho Falls Regional Airport is currently reconstructing portions of Taxiway A. This construction project is the first phase in a multi-year Federal and Local funded grant project that will ultimately include the reconstruction/rehabilitation of Taxiway A and its associated connectors, as well as the reconfiguration of Taxiway C, and the pavement maintenance and renumbering of Runway 02-20.
It will be crucial to the safe operation of all aircraft and ground vehicles during this period to regularly check NOTAMs and verify areas that are closed prior to entering Taxiway A.
The safety of the construction team, ground vehicle operators, and the Airport users is the utmost priority and we appreciate your cooperation and support while we continue to make these critical improvements to the infrastructure at IDA!
We've got some exciting news here at IDA. The airport has just successfully passed the FAA safety inspection with the highest rating possible. And we've secured funds from the FAA necessary to upgrade our de-icing facilities. We are expecting to expand the baggage claim area and make other runway and airfield improvements. All this for the safety and well-being of our passengers. Thanks for #FlyingIDA!
