Changes in flight paths around the Washington-Baltimore area, which have nothing to do with security implications, are being proposed in anticipation of the new Potomac Tracon coming online later this year.
Environmental impact statement
The FAA last week issued the final environmental impact statement for the New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia airspace redesign, a major project that seeks to reduce delays in and out of the New York and Philadelphia metropolitan areas.
The FAA will prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) for implementation of several proposed improvements to San Antonio International Airport (SAT). The agency will review such major projects as extending Runway 3/21 by 1,500 feet to approximately 9,000 feet, upgrading Runway 12L/30R to approximately 8,500 feet by 150 feet and installing an ILS.
