New routes to make getting around St. Louis easier
Beginning June 5, pilots will be able to file for two new low-altitude area navigation (RNAV) routes that should make transitioning around St. Louis Class B airspace easier and more efficient. The new T-routes, T-251 and T-272, were endorsed by AOPA in formal comments filed earlier this year. AOPA has supported T-routes since 2000 as a means to help general aviation traffic avoid congestion in and around Class B airspace; the routes are currently used in North Carolina, Florida, Ohio, and California, and they are in development in Atlanta.
