Anchorage, AK (PANC) Airport Construction
This notice expired on
Thursday, November 7, 2019

The Anchorage Airport construction season will soon commence. Beginning April 1st, Runway 33 will be closed 24 hours a day for approximately 7 months. During this phase of construction aging asphalt will be rehabilitated, and the runway will be widened to comply with new design standards needed to accommodate the largest cargo airplanes in the world.

Runway 7L will be the primary departure runway while Runway 33 is closed. During the last closure of Runway 33, a series of incidents and pilot deviations occurred while using Runway 7L for departures. FAA Quality Control has determined the need to remind pilots, dispatchers and others involved in the operation of the aircraft of the importance of correct read backs of ATC clearances. A complete understanding of the expected actions while flying the standard instrument departure (SID) in use is paramount.
