STS Approach Study


The Charles M. Schulz Sonoma County Airport (STS) will be hosting two community outreach workshops in November. The Airport has engaged with the consulting firm Cignus, a transportation management and engineering company, to perform an Approach Feasibility Study to understand the current airspace and procedures serving STS, so that they can further study the viability and practicality of developing new procedure(s) or modifying existing ones. The study aims to ensure that the proposed new procedures (if any) meet safety, regulatory, operational, and technical requirements. 

Cignus has evaluated all flight procedures serving STS, reviewed all existing obstructions, performed existing flight track data, reviewed noise and operational complaints and reviewed limitations (if any) of the current procedures. The next step will be the development of new or revised procedures while evaluating impact on Airport traffic, airspace, regulatory requirements, and to the extent possible any associated environmental and noise impacts.

An overview of the Approach Feasibility Study will be provided during each workshop, and Cignus will be on site to provide relevant information.

A court reporter will be on site to take comments from community members. Alternatively, comments may also be submitted online from November 1st to November 15.

Each workshop will present the same material and will be hosted in person and via Zoom Webinar. All community members are welcome to attend.
