  • The California Redwood Coast – Humboldt County Airport.
Flying out of Humboldt is always tinged with the possibility of delays or cancellations but flights over the next few days are going be disrupted by equipment upgrades rather than the usual affliction of weather.

According to a release, the Federal Aviation Administration, or FAA, is working on navigation equipment on the main runway, which is expected to be completed by Monday.

“I know the FAA is working as quickly and efficiently as they can to get this replacement done,” Cody Roggatz, the county’s director of aviation, said in the release. “Their team is working diligently to minimize disruptions to flights, but some arriving and departing flights may be impacted until this work is done.”

Read the full county release below:


Some flights at the California Redwood Coast – Humboldt County Airport (ACV) may be affected through Monday as a result of necessary upgrades being done by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to their navigational equipment on the airport’s main runway. The work is expected to be complete by Monday, July 29.

The instrument landing system helps pilots land in challenging weather situations, and it has been fully operational to this point. However, due to FAA guidelines certain components of this system need to be upgraded periodically. Typically, flights with heavy rain or fog will be most impacted.

“I know the FAA is working as quickly and efficiently as they can to get this replacement done,” said Cody Roggatz, director of Aviation. “Their team is working diligently to minimize disruptions to flights, but some arriving and departing flights may be impacted until this work is done.”
