The FAA is proposing to change the Class D and Class E airspace surrounding Juneau.  In the proposed rule modification, FAA outlines the changes which will expand the Class D airspace west and south east of the current boundaries, and eliminate some of the Class E airspace that is an extension to the Class D surface area west of the airport. The FAA also proposed to reduce the size of the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface around Juneau. Pilots using this airspace should study the changes and provide comments, if the proposed changes impact your operations.
