Featured Map for 21 October 2011:
New US Landing Facilities


Planned updates to key aviation data occurs on a fixed, 28-day cycle known as an Aeronautial Information Regulation And Control (AIRAC) cycle. Some countries, including the United States, use a 56-day double AIRAC cycle. Updates are distributed well in advance of the cycle's effective date to allow time for systems to be updated with the new data before it takes effect.

Yesterday was the start of a new FAA cycle for the United States. This cycle included the addition of 30 new landing facilities, shown on today's Featured Map, including 18 new airports (green), 11 new heliports (red), and one new seaplane base (blue).
