Instrument Flight Procedure (IFP) Initiation

Photoillustration of a plane landing with the aid of satellite communication. This site has been developed to provide information on obtaining an Instrument Flight Procedure (IFP).

An IFP may affect more than just your airport. It may affect neighbors, other airports, or the local air traffic system.

Begin the instrument Flight Procedure (IFP) request process by completing an IFP request form. Should further information be required to complete the initial feasibility study, expect a flight procedures specialist to contact you within 10 days.

An IFP for private use will require reimbursement for development costs.
