KLCI's Kneeboard Inaccurate; RWY26 is left traffic now.

Carl I 3 days ago updated by Eric.Rush (Project Lead) yesterday at 7:50 a.m. 1

Hello. My name is Carl and I am a big fan of these AOPA kneeboards and just the airport directory website in general. Thank you for your service. A slight update needed on https://www.aopa.org/Kneeboard/Kneeboard/GeneratePdf?airportId=KLCI


RWY26 is now left traffic.

Hello and thank you for contacting us.

The traffic pattern data we present in our airport directory and on the kneeboard format comes directly from the FAA every 28 days. We are not permitted to change FAA data so once the FAA updates their official database and indicates Rwy 26 as Left traffic pattern, it will be correct in the AOPA presentations of the data. I checked several other common airport directories and EFB apps and they are also still showing Rwy 26 as Right traffic.

There is a Note added by the Airport Manager on the kneeboard format and in our online directory that indicates Rwy 26 is now Left traffic pattern as well as a NOTAM from the FAA indicating Left traffic pattern. Pilots should always consult NOTAMS for changes that occur in-between cycle updates since this is the method the FAA uses to communicate changes since the last 28-day update. It can sometimes take longer than 28 days for the FAA to update their official dataset depending on when the change occurred as well as other factors.
