IFATC at home - Portland Maine (KPWM) [CLOSED]

IFATC at home: Portland International Jetport

Hey everyone! As many already know, IFATC at home is back tomorrow (Sunday, 21 June). I will be opening my home airport, Portland International Jetport in Maine, USA!

PWM (standing for Portland-Westbrook Municipal) is the busiest and one of three international airports in Maine and is accessible and flanked by two motorways on opposing ends of the main runway: I-95 and I-295. It has two intersecting runways where a taxiway is in the process of being built connecting them between the thresholds of 29 and 36. It is serviced mostly by regional jets, though Southwest does fly the 737 into it.

KPWM will be open 2020-06-21T22:00:00Z2020-06-22T00:00:00Z.
KPWM may possibly be open any time between 2020-06-21T15:00:00Z2020-06-21T19:00:00Z.

Runway 11/29
Runway 11/29 is the main runway and is used for all commercial aviation. It is typical and most likely that landings will occur on 29, though this may change due to winds.

Runway 18/36
Runway 18/36 is used only for general aviation. 18 will most likely be used due to its proximity to the GA apron but winds may prohibit such.

Ooh, maybe I’ll stop by for some patterns before Dinner. Great thread!


I will definitely be stopping by for the harbor visual haha!

Awesome thread! (this is also my home airport lol)


It really is a beautiful approach. The harbour is amazing with all the islands and it brings you right over downtown and the Old Port.

Thanks! (I hope other people end up coming, it’s a fun airport)

isn’t that shown on the procedures list?

you know… atc preferred?

It is, but I didn’t include any. I just put SID/STAR use recommended. I think he just wanted to make sure I didn’t have any that I favoured.
