The FAA has proposed to establish a navigation fix on airway V-537 between Macon, Ga., and Palm Beach, Fla., to replace the Moultrie VOR/DME, which has been scheduled for decommissioning.
The fix, to be formed by the intersection of a radial from the Greenville, Fla., Vortac and a radial from the Macon, Ga., Vortac, would maintain the current ground track of the airway, the FAA said.
AOPA encourages members to review the FAA’s proposed amendment of the airway and submit comments by Nov. 29.
