Indianapolis FBOs Ready to Tackle Super Bowl Traffic
With Super Bowl 46 only about than two weeks away, Indianapolis-area FBOs are preparing for the arrival of approximately 1,500 business and general aviation aircraft. “We’re already at more than 60 parking reservations for the game,” Million Air Indianapolis regional director Drent Sarault told BJT sister publication Aviation International News. “Our phones are slammed with people wanting parking.” For those planning to use business and general aviation to fly in for the game on February 5, the Indianapolis Super Bowl Host Committee has set up a “know before you go” web page that includes FAA notices, airspace and security information and an interactive map showing area airports and heliports.
