Pilots are being reminded to plan accordingly for a modified Dallas-Fort Worth Class B airspace area that will go into effect on March 6. The changes will align with the Dallas-Fort Worth terminal and sectional chart cycles.
AOPA had previously submitted comments to the FAA expressing concern with the modification, including lowering the Class B floor over Addison Airport that compresses an already confined airspace area.
Under the new design, the Class B airspace floor above Addison Airport will be 2,500 feet msl. The modification lowers the floor in four areas, redefines the northern boundary, and incorporates an exclusion of a small area of airspace within the Class B surface area.

The U.S. Air Force has released its final environmental impact statement for an enormous military airspace complex, but the statement appears to largely overlook concerns raised by the general aviation community.
A restricted area three miles from Martha’s Vineyard is being shut down, though it may still be activated through Nov. 14.
Live fire training that sends mortars and artillery to 9,400 feet will require changes to restricted areas in Louisiana.
