Proposed Modification of the Dallas/Fort Worth Class B Airspace Area; TX
This action proposes to modify the Dallas/Fort Worth, TX, Class B airspace area to ensure containment of large turbine-powered aircraft flying instrument procedures to and from the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and Dallas Love Field Airport (DAL) within Class B airspace. The FAA is proposing these actions to further support its national airspace redesign goal of optimizing terminal and en route airspace areas to enhance safety, improving the flow of air traffic, and reducing the potential for near midair collision in the DFW terminal area.
Proposed Amendment of Area Navigation (RNAV) Route T-266; AK

Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace; Twentynine Palms, CA
This action amends Class D and Class E airspace at Twentynine Palms SELF Airport, Twentynine Palms, CA. This action changes the airport name formerly called Twentynine Palms Expeditionary Air Field (EAF), Marine Corps Base. This action also adjusts the geographic coordinates of the airport to enhance the safety and management of aircraft operations at Twentynine Palms SELF Airport, Twentynine Palms, CA. This action does not change the boundaries of the airspace.
Proposed Establishment of Area Navigation (RNAV) Routes; OR
This action proposes to establish two new low-altitude RNAV routes in the state of Oregon, designated T-302 and T-304. The routes would replace segments of an existing VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR) Federal airway that will be removed due to the planned decommissioning of the Portland, OR, VOR/DME in 2013. This action would advance the implementation of RNAV and provide continued en route navigation guidance in the affected airspace.
