New Airport Name: Northern Colorado Regional Airport
Our Airport Commission voted this afternoon to rename our airport to Northern Colorado Regional Airport, effective immediately. Over the next few months, we can expect the name change to appear on approach charts and sectional charts. The commission will be asking the two cities for funding to change the signage around the airport.
Our radio calls will eventually change to some variation of “Northern Colorado Regional Traffic” (my recommendation is “NorCo Traffic”). Keep doing what you’re currently doing on the radio (“Fort Collins Loveland Traffic” or “Fort Love Traffic” or whatever) until we’re directed to change.
Our airport designator will continue to live on as FNL, so we will remain FNL Pilots Association.
