City, IAC reach compromise on aerobatic box
Club will request practice space be moved to southeast corner of airport
The city of Morris and the International Aerobatic Club Chapter 1 may have come to a compromise over the location of an aerobatic box near the airport.
This past summer, the council objected to Federal Aviation Administration's approval of an aerobatic practice box near Morris Municipal Airport for the aerobatic club. The box, which is 3,600 feet by 3,600 feet and extends from ground level to an altitude of 5,000 feet just northwest of the airport, is used by pilots to practice aerobatic maneuvers.
The box is in the flight pattern of the approach to the airport's runway and in the approach of Midway and O'Hare airports, according to city officials, and therefore causes safety concerns with aerobatic pilots and other pilots also using the airspace.
