AOPA's Five-Year Plan Paying Off
IFR pilots will soon be able to transition through the
Charlotte, North Carolina, area more efficiently beginning
September 1st, thanks in part to a five-year long effort by the
AOPA. On Wednesday, the FAA announced its intentions to chart four
RNAV IFR Terminal Transition Routes (RITTRs) in the Charlotte
"This is another successful step in AOPA's ongoing efforts to
use satellite navigation to give GA pilots better access to
airports and airspace around the country — more routes are
expected to be charted for Jacksonville, Florida, and Cincinnati,"
said Melissa Rudinger, AOPA vice president of regulatory affairs.
"These routes can help end many of the ATC-directed detours around
Class B airspace and allow pilots to receive more benefits from
their IFR-certified GPS receivers."
The RNAV-based routes are strategically placed through
Charlotte's Class B airspace to allow pilots to transition the area
safely and efficiently. Pilots must be flying aircraft with
IFR-certified Global Positioning System (GPS) or Global Navigation
Satellite System (GNSS) equipment.
The routes will be similar to Victor airways, including minimum
en route altitudes. On NACO charts, the terminal airways will be
printed in blue. Eventually pilots may see such routes charted in
many terminal areas where IFR transitions are currently
