- NBAA Resource: Florida West Coast Airspace Redesign (FLOWCAR)
- The Florida West Coast Airspace Redesign (FLOWCAR) project came about with the goal to improve system capacity and boost efficiency by addressing two key issues - the lack of segregation of several traffic flows into southwest Florida and the general complexity of the airspace.
NBAA has created a resource to provide information for operators flying into and out of this area. Learn more here.
FAA Center, TRACON & Airport Notices: (beginning with the most recent)
- Fort Lauderdale International Runway Project Begins in April
- February 13, 2012
Runway 9R/27L at Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International (FLL) will close on April 17 for a complete rehabilitation and extension, continuing until September 2014. The project will cause operational constraints that may result in delays at times of peak demand. During the closure, other significant changes will be made on the airport, including modifications to the taxiway infrastructure and the decommissioning of Runway 13/31 in May 2013. From that date until September 2014, the airport will be down to one operational runway. Learn More.
- FAA Continues Expansion of RNAV Off-the-Ground Operations
- October 7, 2009
Commencing October 15, 2009, Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) will implement use of the RNAV Off-the-Ground (OTG) phraseology currently in use at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) and Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). It is critically important that, when cleared via the OTG RNAV phraseology, (e.g. “Lear 235 Bravo, RNAV to GIRGY, Runway 18C, Cleared for takeoff”), pilots engage LNAV as soon as permitted by AFM limitation – no later than an altitude of 500 feet. Strict compliance with lateral and vertical tracks is imperative with all RNAV SIDs, so pilots must insure that all three elements of the ATC-cleared SID have been loaded into the Active FMS route - the departure runway, the SID itself, and the transition. Additionally:
- FAA Evaluating Phraseology for RNAV Instrument Departures at DFW and ATL
- May 20, 2009
The FAA will begin evaluation of RNAV Off-the-Ground phraseology and Dallas Fort Worth International (DFW) and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International (ATL) airports on June 1, 2009. The phraseology, to be issued with the takeoff clearance, requires aircrews to validate correct programming of the runway and departure procedure in the aircraft flight management system prior to takeoff. Pilots can expect a takeoff clearance from ATC that will provide instructions to depart the runway either via an RNAV path or via an assigned heading to be maintained.

- December 5, 2008
Operators are encouraged to file new preferred RNAV arrivals to theSouthwest Florida airports of Fort Myers Page Field (FMY), Southwest Florida Intl.
