Cache Valley residents may have noticed less local air traffic in recent weeks. The reason is closure of the Logan-Cache Airport’s main runway for resurfacing.
The project started on May 10 and is expected to be complete on June 25. In the meantime, take-offs and landings have been confined to the airport’s shorter and narrower southeast-to-northwest diagonal runway, which can’t handle all of the airport’s usual activity.
“We’re not getting as many corporate jets landing here. They are diverting to other airports, and then our student traffic, they’re not doing as many touch-and-go landings as they usually would,” Airport Manager Lee Ivie said. “We still have the smaller corporate jets landing, but the larger ones would have a hard time fueling to capacity and then getting enough lift to get off the shorter runway.” Read the rest of the story on HJnews.com.
