Federal Aviation Administration to host Public Workshops

on Proposed Air Traffic Improvements for Fort Lauderdale Area Airports 


The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will host public workshops in mid-April to gather residents’ input on proposed improvements to air traffic procedures for Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport and local general aviation airports. The South- Central Florida Metroplex will allow the FAA to improve regional traffic flow using the precision of satellite-based navigation. The Metroplex project will benefit passengers by creating more direct routes, decreasing congestion at airports and in the air, and improving air traffic flows. It will enhance safety and efficiency and offer environmental benefits by reducing fuel burn and carbon emissions.

The sessions will be from 6 to 9 p.m. at these locations:

  • April 22 – Old Davie School, 6650 Griffin Rd, Davie, 33314
  • April 23 – Mangrove Hall, Westlake, 1200 Sheridan St, Hollywood, 33019 
  • April 24 – Signature Grand, 6900 State Road 84, Davie, 33317
  • April 25 – David Posnack JCC, 5850 S. Pine Island Rd, Davie, 33328

The workshops will be in an open house format where FAA experts will share preliminary designs of the air traffic procedures and answer questions.
The agency will accept written comments at the workshops and for 30 days after at this email address: ATO-FLL- FLMetroplexComments@faa.gov.
The South-Central Florida Metroplex is part of the Next Generation Air Transportation System,
