The Trail Regional Airport is making upgrades so they can land planes come rain or shine.
The facility has new GPS instrument approaches.
That will allow aircraft to come in 1,500 ft closer to the ground through cloudy and foggy skies to see the runway and make a landing decision.
Here’s Airport Manager Don Goulard.
Goulard says the technology has been developed and tested and now they need the changes to go through Nav Canada’s approval process – which will likely be done by the middle of 2015.
