Community Engagement - San Juan, P.R.

The public is invited to participate in a virtual meeting to learn more about a proposal to modify the controlled airspace around Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) proposal expands the area where pilots interact with FAA air traffic controllers but will not change existing flight paths. The airspace change will improve the FAA’s ability to manage the complexity and volume of aviation activities in the area.
