Project Name: Common Traffic Advisory Frequency (CTAF) Congestion at Non-Towered Airports
Aviation Office Project Manager: Mike McClure
Consulting Firms (Prime and Sub-consultant, if applicable)

Start DateTuesday, October 25, 2016 Completion Date:  Saturday, December 30, 2017
Project Description
This was raised at the 2016-3 Statewide CFASPP. ASO contacted the non-towered GA airports assigned a CTAF frequency. 62 of the airports are assigned one of the 7 Unicom frequencies and 19 are assigned one of the 2 Multicom frequencies. Several airports responded and follow-up calls were made to fully understand their issues. As a result, 7 airports were identified as good candidates for CTAF change. ASO conducted a thorough study of the CTAF and other aeronautical frequencies within 100 miles of these 7 airports and came up with a recommendation for alternate frequencies the airports may want to consider switching to. 3 airports are in the process of contacting the FCC and the FAA to initiate the CTAF change process. Airport managers will keep each other and the ASO informed of their progress, lessons learned, etc.
