The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) signed a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) and Record of Decision (ROD) for the Southern California Metroplex project on August 31, 2016. This is the FAA’s final decision, and it enables the agency to move forward with implementing the project, which will replace dozens of existing conventional air traffic control procedures with new satellite-based procedures. The project encompasses most of Southern California and includes six major airports and 15 satellite airports. The FAA undertook the project to improve airspace safety and efficiency by allowing for more optimized and efficient routing of aircraft into and out of Southern California.

The FONSI and ROD, as well as the Final Environmental Assessment, are available here.

The FAA is hosting Internet-based webinars that allow the public to attend from any available computer during the posted briefing times to learn more about the project.
