The FAA has published modifications to the Teterboro, N.J., airport’s Dalton VFR departure. The changes took effect June 30.
The Dalton departure is available from Runway 19 by pilot request. It is not assigned by air traffic control. Pilots may request the procedure by name when there is a ceiling of at least 3,000 feet with visibility of three miles or more. Aircraft may not exceed 190 knots airspeed, and must maintain VFR conditions at or below 1,300 feet msl. Pilots must complete the prescribed turn within two miles of the TEB VOR.
The changes were made to make the procedure, which is a valuable tool in reducing departure delays, simpler to fly and reduce pilot deviations, the FAA said.

NextGen was intended to improve access and efficiency in the nation’s busiest airspace. But two new RNAV terminal routes proposed west of Washington, D.C.’s, Class B airspace do just the opposite.
Question: Is there a visual aid to help me understand notams that change the configuration of an airport during construction?
The FAA has proposed a reduced Class D airspace area at Alaska’s Bryant Army Airfield after concerns from the public, saying additional information is needed.
