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.
The newest TBM does 330 knots and goes 1,730 nautical miles--and it's in production now.
You'll never guess what goes on inside this sleepy-looking, country home.
It is full of history, and ready for you to come browse.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
