Lyon Bron Gets Groovy with Its Runway

 - March 15, 2012, 3:40 PM

France’s Lyon Bron business airport started grooving its runway on Tuesday to comply with FAA standards–a first in the country. This should allow more business jets to use the airport, since the runway carried several operating restrictions during rainy conditions. French aviation regulations do not impose any runway grooving mandates, but insurers do, an industry source told AIN.
