Major Airway Changes in the Northeast

Click to View

If you are flying in the Northeast, you need to know that there have been major changes to the airway structure. The Lake Henry (LHY) VOR has been decommissioned. There is now an RNAV waypoint LAAYK that has replaced LHY.
 
This is affecting numerous airways and standard routing paths assigned by ATC. Many of the Victor and Jet airways have been deleted or modified, and there are many new Q and T Routes through the area. Please make sure your charts and aircraft database are up-to-date.
 
Please take the time to plan your routes accordingly using the tools available on FltPlan.com. Be prepared for amended clearance, as well as some minor confusion while pilots and controllers get used to the new airways.
