Van Nuys – KVNY

Van Nuys airport was the second of three approaches to meet the flight experience requirements towards an instrument rating. After departing Meadows Filed – Bakersfield on an instrument flight plan, we flew the VOR-B approach and landed on 16 Right at Van Nuys. Upon landing, we taxied back, picked up an IFR clearance to French Valley – F70 to complete the third and final RNAV approach.

Van Nuys, located in the San Fernando Valley, is the busiest general aviation airport in the United States. Van Nuys is a towered airport in Class D airspace operating parallel runways 16R and 16L.  The documentary One Six Right: The Romance of Flying features the history of Van Nuys airport and the value of general aviation to the region and country.
