An FAA proposal to create three T routes (terminal RNAV routes) in the Los Angeles Class B airspace will help reduce the cost of flying in the area and help pilots reap more benefits from their IFR-certified GPS receivers, AOPA said in formal comments on the proposal. [ See a map of the proposed routes.] The association has supported implementing T routes in congested airspace since 2000. So far, the routes have been charted in Cincinnati; Charlotte and Outer Banks, North Carolina; and Jacksonville, Florida. Routes are now being considered in the Augusta, Georgia, area.
