FAA Schedules Meeting To Discuss Miami Class B Changes

 - April 2, 2019, 4:51 PM

An FAA “fact-finding informal airspace meeting” regarding a plan to modify the Miami Class B Airspace and the Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Class C Airspace areas is scheduled for June 12.  All comments received during the meeting will be considered before any revision or issuance of a notice of proposed rulemaking.

During the two-hour event, an FAA representative will brief attendees on the planned modifications and interested parties will have an opportunity to “present views, recommendations, and comments on any proposed change to the airspace.”  

The meeting will be held from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Broward College, South Campus Building 69, Room 133, 7200 Pines Blvd., Pembroke Pines, Florida.

This meeting is not to be confused with those previously announced to run in April and May associated with the FAA’s The South-Central Florida Metroplex re-design project announced last year. While the two projects are related, the broader purpose of the Metroplex effort is to “optimize procedures and improve air traffic flow on a regional scale by analyzing current operational challenges and exploring opportunities for improvement,” including developing proposed updates to current arrival and departure procedures.

The 13 public meetings on the Metroplex redesign start are scheduled from April 15 through May 2 at various venues throughout south-central Florida.
