O’Hare Slot Program Extended Again
The FAA extended through October 28 a flight-reduction program at Chicago O’Hare International Airport, including slot reservations for general aviation operations. The current limitations were scheduled to end April 1. Through several six-month extensions, the program has been in effect continuously since November 2004, and the FAA has concluded an evaluation of comments on a proposal that would extend the program through April 2008. The program limits all Part 91 and/or 135 IFR and VFR unscheduled flights to four operations per hour from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
