The project proposes new changes at airports including Palm Beach (PBI).
According to the FAA, the workshops will be an open house format where FAA experts will share preliminary designs of the air traffic procedures and answer questions. The agency will accept written comments at the workshops and through a link posted on this webpage: South Central Florida Community Involvement
