Heads up for pilots who fly in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley. On May 29th, 2014 a significant change takes place to the common Traffic Advisory Frequencies(CTAF) assigned north and west of Anchorage. Aproximately 77 airport CTAFs will change on that date.

36 airports will have CTAFs assigned for the first time. In total the FAA is sending letters to 178 airport owners notifying them of the CTAF assignment changes. Goose Bay, Wolf Lake and Anderson Lake are just three of the airports whose CTAFs will change. The new frequencies will be found on flight charts, in individual airport listings in the Alaska Supplement, along with a map in the Notices section.  for more information connect with us www.faa.gov/go/flyalaska and if you want to share any feed back you might have on the changes they would love to hear from you.www.aasfonline.org/feedback
