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. Please cite FAA Docket No. FAA–2012–0971 and Airspace Docket No. 12–ASO–31 at the beginning of your comments.

Department of Transportation,
The FAA on Feb. 23 issued a special airworthiness information bulletin recommending preflight inspection of Robinson R44 and R44 II main rotors.
The FAA has released an eight-minute video providing aviation medical examiners with guidance on the agency's new obstructive sleep apnea policy, which takes effect March 2.
New legislation in both houses of Congress would allow thousands of pilots to fly without a third class medical and offer new protections for GA pilots.
