Special Local Regulations: Annual Fort Myers Beach Air Show, Fort Myers Beach, FL
The Coast Guard proposes to establish permanent special local regulations for the Fort Myers Beach Air Show, Fort Myers Beach, Florida. This event is proposed to be held annually on the second Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of May between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. EDT (Eastern Daylight Time). This proposed regulation is needed to restrict persons and vessels from entering the sterile zone (air box) below the aerial demonstration and restrict vessels from mooring/anchoring or transiting within the surrounding regulated area with the exception of the Matanzas Pass Channel. This proposed rule is necessary to ensure the safety of life for the participating aircraft, spectators, and mariners in the area on the navigable waters of the United States.
