Devils Tower Aircraft Overflight Project
Started: May, 2006 Ended: March, 2007 Project ID #4W1028 Status: Completed
The objective of this project is to create a site bulletin and distribution plan which will help inform pilots of the voluntary no-fly advisory zone existing at the Devils Tower National Monument.
The Devils Tower National Monument is a stunning landscape feature that attracts small aircraft. The potential for aerial observation tends to draw people in closer than is prudent or respectful. Twenty-two American Indian tribes have a cultural affiliation with this location; visitors from many of these tribes have traditionally used this place for religious and meditative purposes and the noise pollution from aircraft disturbs the quiet nature of this area. An agreement between the community of Hulett, Wyoming; Devils Tower National Monument; and the Federal Aviation Administration created a voluntary no-fly advisory zone for the Devils Tower National Monument. The site bulletin created through this project will help pilots maintain the correct distance from the Monument.
