The FAA has proposed to remove the northernmost portion of Victor airway V595 in Oregon in connection with the scheduled decommissioning of the Portland VOR, which serves as the end point for the route. Members are encouraged to review the proposal and submit comments to the FAA by Dec. 6.
Under the proposed airway modification, V595 would terminate at the HARZL fix (see the accompanying graphic), 29 nautical miles from the current end point.
AOPA encourages members to review the proposal and submit comments on the potential impact of the airway amendment by Dec. 6 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 identify FAA Docket No. FAA–2012–1004 and Airspace Docket No. 12–ANM–21 at the beginning of your comments, and share a copy with AOPA.
