Continuing the FAA's trial program of using waivers to permit VFR flying, AOPA is pleased to announce that Teterboro Airport (TEB) can now be added to the list of New York airports open for VFR operations. Similar to other New York airports recently opened to VFR flights in the enhanced Class B airspace surrounding the city, the following restrictions apply:

Earlier in the week, VFR operations were restored, with restrictions, at Republic (FRG), Morristown (MMU), Caldwell (CDW), Lincoln Park (N07), and Westchester County (HPN) airports.

Pilots are strongly encouraged to contact flight service prior to conducting each flight operation.
