Juneau Airspace Letter Of Agreement

A graphic representation of the proposed airspace is proposed in docket No. FAA-2018-0125 and is available for download under Supporting/Related Materials. The FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018 stipulates that all flight sites in controlled airspace must have a letter of acaricance (LOA) with air navigation control (ATC) facilities. AMA works directly with the FAA to prioritize this work and ensure that you have the protection you need to continue flying. This document proposes to amend FAA Regulation 7400.11B, entitled airspace and direct lines from 3 August 2017 and effective 15 September 2017. The Order FaA 7400.11B is publicly available, as indicated in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11B lists Class A, B, C, D and E airspace areas, routes and direct lines. The FAA plans to commission an airspace authorization system (LAANC) for recreational flights this summer. Meanwhile, the only legal route in controlled airspace is on site at a flight site with an LOA. During this new LOA process, the FAA will respect any existing oral or written agreements of the club with the local ATC. “To better deal with this, commercial aircraft operators have received a letter of acquisition,” Sprague said. “We`ve basically established patterns that we steal, and we don`t deviate from those patterns.” An electronic copy of this document can be downloaded on the internet at www.regulations.gov. Recently published regular documents can also be found on the FAA website at www.faa.gov/air_traffic/publications/airspace_amendments/.

A graph shows airspace classes, communication frequencies and direct lines in the Juneau transport area. Safe operating practices in the Juneau area are explained in a detailed 28x letter of agreement, approved by local operators. Class E airspace, designated as an extension, would be removed, as the proposed Class D airspace would include inbound aircraft within 300 feet of the surface and there would be no need to extend the arrival of Class E. Class D airspace would be modified within a 3-mile radius of Juneau International Airport and 4 miles from the airport`s 271-degree warehouse, which extends from the 3-mile radius to 8.5 km west of the airport. and less than 1.0 miles southwest and 4.6 miles northeast of airport 135 degrees the airport extends 3 miles radius 8 miles southeast of the airport, with the exception of this airspace less than 2,000 feet from MSL within the zone bounded by a lat line. 58-19`35` N. 134-24`31` W, up to 58-19`02` N, long. 134-25`33` W, up to 58 degrees 20`16` N, long. 134-27`28` W, up to 58 degrees 20`34` N, long. 134-26`22` W, from there to the beginning.

The large areas to the west and southeast of the airport would include IFR exits and arrivals. A small area within the vast southeast area near Salmon Creek would be excluded from Class D airspace within 2000 feet of MSL to ensure that a 2-lane radio link with the Juneau Airport traffic control tower is possible before importing Class D airspace out of that area.
