Community Engagement - Boston, MA Workshops

The Federal Aviation Administration’s New England Region held the “Boston Area Communities Public Information Workshop” via Zoom, on Wednesday, April 26, 2023 and on Thursday, April 27, 2023.

This first of it’s kind event was an opportunity to discuss with communities the many operations, challenges, and constraints in and around the airspace in the Boston area. Given the complexity of the airspace, it is essential to discuss these issues openly.

The panelists during the virtual workshop included representatives from the FAA, MassPort (Boston Logan Airport operator), and airline and aviation industry spokespersons. The panelists discussed how we operate the airspace and provided a detailed explanation of key arrival and departure procedures.  Additionally, they explained in detail the factors that create challenges and constraints for an airport, such as weather, terrain, and airport surface limits.
