Yeager Airport Haven for Diverted Flights

Yeager Airport in West Virginia is a popular place for flights that have been diverted from a number of airports, including Washington National, Washington Dulles, Detroit, Charlotte, and Atlanta.  Flights can be diverted due to mechanical problems, bad weather, or any other issue.  Yeager marketing coordinator Anthony Gilmer said the reason for all the diverted flights is due to the airport’s location, which is close to two extremely high frequency omni-directional range (VOR) stations, one in Henderson and one in South Charleston.

Gilmer said it’s like highways in the sky, and with a third VOR station in Beckley, the Yeager area is often the beginning of the descent for many arrival paths.  Often times, an aircraft needs to make a landing and doesn’t have time to search for the most convenient airport.  That is when they choose Yeager Airport, which often turn out to be due to structural problems with the aircraft.

The above article is a summary.  Please see the source article at Google News.
