The Federal Aviation Administration's plan to update a runway at Danville Regional Airport faces opposition in Danville, Va. The FAA would like the airport to shorten the 60-year-old runway, but a shorter runway could affect flight traffic. "I'm very reluctant to turn students loose on their first opportunities to fly on runways that aren't sufficient lengths to meet what I consider normal safety requirements," said Richard Bailey, a flight instructor at General Aviation.
