New approaches published for Lee’s Summit Municipal Airport


The FAA has published new local instrument approach procedures (IAP) for runway 18-36 at the Lee’s Summit Municipal Airport in Jackson County, Missouri, which provide official confirmation from the FAA of the newly extended 5,501ft runway.

While the extension of runway 18-36 from 4,016ft to 5,501ft was completed at the end of September 2017, the publication of the new approaches is another important milestone.

“The publishing of the new approaches means the Lee’s Summit Municipal Airport and its 5,501ft runway is officially on the map. We have received many inquiries into the lengthened runway, but many pilots were not able to fly in until the approaches became officially published. We look forward to seeing new faces at the airport and we’re ready to showcase the improvements and our exceptional customer service,” says airport manager John Ohrazda.
