The Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport announced two workshops designed to shine a spotlight on the Approach Feasibility Study, which is conducted to understand the current airspace and procedures serving STS, and the practicality of developing new procedures or modifying existing ones. The study aims to ensure that any proposed new procedures meet safety, regulatory, operational and technical requirements.

The workshops are open to the public to participate in-person or via Zoom:

  • Windsor: Wednesday, Nov. 1 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Mary Agatha Furth Center Ballroom, 8400 Old Redwood Highway in Windsor.
  • Sebastopol: Thursday, Nov. 2 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Center for the Arts, Brent Auditorium, 282 S. High St. in Sebastopol.

Both sessions will include the same information and will be available to view online.
