Airports and Airspace | September/October 2021

The September/October 2021 issue of FAA Safety Briefing focuses on airports and airspace, which are integral parts of the National Airspace System's (NAS) infrastructure. Articles in this issue explore the value of our nation's vast array of public-use airports and their importance to the communities they serve. We also highlight some critical "rules of the sky," explore nearly a century of evolution in the NAS, and review some best practices for communicating with air traffic control.
