The smallest of the three major New York area airports, LaGuardia Airport primarily
accommodates domestic airline services with limited international routes. Beginning aviation
service in 1929, the airport grew over the next 80 years to a booming commercial hub.
Its success brought challenges to the New York area as its four runways became so busy
that the Port Authority and FAA limited flights, imposing a perimeter rule that limited direct
flights into and out of LaGuardia to 1500 miles or less from the airport (with Denver being
the only exception). Longer distance flights were redirected to nearby Newark Liberty Int’l
and John F Kennedy Int’l.
Serving as a domestic hub for both American Airlines and Delta, despite the restrictions,
traffic continued to grow and form LaGuardia into one of the busiest airports on the
American East Coast.

Do I have to be a part of DLVA to join this event?
Nope! This event is open to any pilot eligible to fly on the expert server! We encourage pilots of the community to join us, as well as any VA’s that want to be a part of the event!
Do I have to make my own flight plan?
It will depend on where you are flying from and to during the event! If you are choosing one of the listed routes from above, then a pre-planned route will be provided. If you are flying to/from an airport not listed above, you will be expected to create your own flight plan.
Will there be SIDs/STARs at LGA?
Using SIDs and STARs for LGA procedures are required. These procedures help keep the immediate airspace surrounding LGA organized and flowing. Failure to use SIDs and STARs may result in a violation/report.
Do I have to fly the designated event routes arriving and or departing to LGA to be a part of the event?
Of course not! When flying in and out of LGA, you pick your origin and destination of your choice! However, it is up to you to choose your departure time for your flight into LGA for the best arrival time in order to catch our peak event attendance at LGA!
