Pilots flying into Colorado’s ski-country airports are already aware of the controversial special traffic-management program (STMP) for filing for slots into the crowded airspace. Every year, particularly during the holiday seasons, pilots’ frustration levels rise as the number of available arrival slots dwindles, especially during bad weather. NBAA airports specialist Bob Lamond has repeatedly advised aircraft operators of the perennial limitations for air traffic into the remote ski-country airports–hazardous terrain surrounding the valley runways and lack of radar coverage. For detailed information addressing concerns, problems and questions specific to flying into these airports, visit the NBAA Web site at: web.nbaa.org/public/ops/airspace/ski.
