Tree clearing by Danbury airport completed

Danbury has completed all of the tree trimming needed to have regular air traffic flow at Danbury Municipal Airport. 


The Federal Aviation Administration recently made the approach to the airport wider and changed the geometry.  The height of the trees affecting the approach were then reviewed.  During nighttime flying in inclement weather, the planes had to be rerouted.  The Aviation Administration Flight Standards Division for the New England Region required Danbury Municipal Airport to cut additional trees on the approach to Runway 8.


Six easements from property owners in Danbury were needed in order to clear more trees. The easements from the property owners on Briar Ridge Road, Cel Bret Drive and Miry Brook Road would cost $951,000. The FAA will pay 95-percent of the total cost.  The easements needed to be in hand before a grant from the FAA will be issued.
