Public Workshops

 Proposed Air Traffic Improvements for Fort Lauderdale Area Airports 

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will host public workshops in mid-April to gather residents’ input on proposed improvements to air traffic procedures for Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport and local general aviation airports. The South-Central Florida Metroplex will allow the FAA to improve regional traffic flow using the precision of satellite-based navigation. The Metroplex project will benefit passengers by creating more direct routes, decreasing congestion at airports and in the air, and improving air traffic flows. It will enhance safety and efficiency and offer environmental benefits by reducing fuel burn and carbon emissions.
