Pilot Awareness Campaign

Attention pilots and all other O’Hare airfield users:

On October 15, 2015, the O’Hare Modernization Program will reach a major milestone with the completion of south airfield construction and opening of new Runway 10R-28L. A new South Tower will also be commissioned that will control Runway 10R-28L.

The Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) has developed "pilot awareness" posters that detail the upcoming airfield changes associated with the opening of Runway 10R-28L.

Poster #2 - New O’Hare runway configurations.

Poster #3 - PRM procedures for aircraft arriving on both Runways 10C and 10R.

October 15 is approaching fast. Here are some things you can do to help us spread the word:
