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.
Comments may be submitted online or by mail to U.S. Department of Transportation, Docket Operations, M–30, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., West Building Ground Floor, Room W12–140, Washington, DC 20590–0001.

The movement to exempt thousands of general aviation pilots from the third class medical certification process is gaining momentum in Congress and the aviation community.

The National Aeronautic Association has awarded the Collier Trophy for “the first unmanned, autonomous air system operating from an aircraft carrier.”
