Sequester Will Affect FAA Towers

In advance of the cuts; the Federal Aviation Administration is preparing to eliminate $600-million from its budget.  It has sent notice to 100 air traffic control facilities across the country that they'll be closed.  Four airports are on the list in Oregon: North Bend, Eastern Oregon Regional at Pendleton, McNary Field in Salem and Troutdale.  Eight airports are on the list in Washington State: including Tacoma, Yakima, Olympia and Felts Field in Spokane.  Not having a tower means pilots will need to use another set of procedures to communicate when they're landing and taking off.  The airports will remain open.
