Community Engagement - Orange County, CA

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) hosted the “Orange County Communities Virtual Public Information Workshop” via Zoom, on Tuesday, November 15, 2022 and again on Thursday, November 17, 2022.

The FAA took the opportunity to discuss the operations, challenges, and constraints in and around the airspace in the region. Given the complexity of the airspace, it was essential to discuss these issues holistically.

The panelists included representatives from the FAA, John Wayne Airport, the airlines and industry. The panelists discussed how we operate the airspace, provided a detailed explanation of key arrival and departure routes, and laid out the factors like weather, terrain, airport surface limits, and the airport’s access plan that create many challenges and constraints.

You can access the complete recorded workshops on YouTube using the links below, or by navigating to "videos" on the FAA's Facebook page.
