FlightSafety International plans to offer Dassault Falcon 7X simulator training at its Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) learning center starting in early 2011. According to a spokesman, the company will manufacture two full-motion 7X simulators, with the first one based at the DFW facility; the location of the second has yet to be determined.
Sixteen RNAV standard instrument departure (SID) procedures go into effect October 12 for Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). The FAA is expanding RNAV SIDs from use in Las Vegas, where they were first introduced in 2002, to the rest

In an unusual request, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) last month filed a petition with the FAA asking permission to operate without a rotating beacon.
