NEWS: FAA's Denver Metroplex implementation begins March 26

WASHINGTON - The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is implementing the Denver Metroplex project on March 26, 2020.

The comprehensive project will use cutting-edge satellite navigation to move air traffic more safely and efficiently through the Denver area. Its 29 new satellite-based routes and 15 existing/modified routes will allow for more direct and efficient routing of aircraft into and out of Denver International and surrounding airports.

The FAA hosted public workshops in 2017 in the greater Denver metropolitan area to provide the public with a better understanding of the preliminary flight procedure designs for the Denver Metroplex Project, and to obtain public comments. After releasing the Draft Environmental Assessment in April 2019, the FAA held additional workshops and a 45-day public comment period. In total, the FAA hosted 24 public workshops and conducted 78 briefings for community groups, airport officials and local, state, and federal officials. The FAA also evaluated and responded to 1,841 public comments.

After the FAA implements the new procedures, some flight track dispersion will continue to occur as it does today. In addition, air traffic controllers will continue to sometimes vector aircraft for safety or efficiency reasons or to reroute them around weather systems.

The FAA issued a Finding of No Significant Impact/Record of Decision for the Denver Metroplex project on January 24, 2020.

 as not just another general aviation airport, but as a valued business partner, and we are pleased to see the results of this effort in this year’s Airport Economic Impact Report.”
