AOPA supports changes to LAX special flight rulesAOPA supports changes to LAX special flight rules

AOPA is supporting proposed changes to the Los Angeles special flight rules area (SFAR) that will make life a little easier for instrument pilots. The changes will have minimal effect on VFR pilots, who will still be able to use the VFR route through the Class B airspace just east of Los Angeles International Airport. But a small change in the description of the SFAR area will allow air traffic control to give north and southbound IFR pilots more direct routes past LAX, and change the IFR routes so that they aren't crossing the VFR routes. The Southern California Users Group (of which AOPA is a member) worked with the FAA on the proposed airspace changes.
