FAA proposes airway modifications in MississippiFAA proposes airway modifications in Mississippi

The FAA has announced a proposal to modify two jet routes and seven Victor airways, and remove two other airways in the vicinity of Jackson, Miss., in connection with the scheduled decommissioning of the Jackson Vortac and the concurrent commissioning of the Magnolia Vortac. Members may submit comments on the proposal by April 1.

The replacement of the Jackson Vortac with the Magnolia Vortac at the Bruce Campbell Field Airport in Madison, Miss., will require the airway modifications, the FAA said. No changes in availability of altitudes were necessitated by the modification that realigns the airways with the new navaid’s location. Only minor differences in airway leg lengths will result from the changes.

Members may submit comments by April 1 online or by mail to U.S. Department of Transportation, Docket Operations, M-30, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE, West Building Ground Floor, Room W12-140, Washington, DC 20590-0001. Please cite FAA Docket No. FAA-2013-0016 and Airspace Docket No. 12-ASO-33.

Please share your comments with AOPA.
