FAA Response – Long Runway
The FAA responded to an ONCC inquiry regarding the use of long runways during Fly Quiet 21. The letter stated: “The FAA will accommodate for runways longer than 9C/27C or extended runway 9R/27L. We encourage discussions with the airlines for what they consider an acceptable long runway option as part of the discussion on a new runway rotation program.” LINK
