Vermont Airport Suspends Week’s Worth of Flights for Upgrades

Southern Vermont Regional Airport in Vermont has suspended flights for a week in order to perform upgrades to the airport’s landing instrument system.  Flight suspension began yesterday and will last through Friday while crews install a million-dollar instrument landing system.  The airport schedule includes three daily flights to Boston on Cape Air.  About 90 passengers were scheduled to fly this week and the airline is offering passengers a refund or the option of flying out of Lebanon, which is about 50 km away

The new landing system will allow pilots to shave 100 feet off their current requirement to see the runway from an altitude of 500 feet at a distance of half a mile away.  Dave Carman, Rutland airport manager, said it’s a small inconvenience for five days to gain a huge benefit for the airport and its customers.  Passenger demand has been on the rise and the airport plans to add a fourth flight to the Boston route in June.
