Quiz Me: IFR operations at airportsQuiz Me: IFR operations at airports

Here's an edited question asked by an AOPA member who contacted our aviation services staff through the AOPA Pilot Information Center. Test your knowledge.

Question: What is the difference in annual IFR operations between a regional airport and a national airport?

Answer: To qualify as a national airport, the airport must have at least 5,000 annual IFR operations per year among other requirements. A regional airport must have at least 1,000 annual IFR operations per year. To learn more about airport categories and why general aviation airports are a national asset, check out this report published by the FAA last year.
