FAA to Study Traffic Near U.S. Airports

From a Times Staff Writer

Prompted by the collision of a private plane and an Aeromexico DC-9 over Cerritos on Aug. 31, the Federal Aviation Administration said Wednesday that it is initiating a formal review of the terminal-controlled airspace at the nation's major airports, including Los Angeles International Airport.

The report, which FAA Administrator Donald D. Engen wants completed by Oct. 15, will examine such factors as the amount of traffic, number of flight infractions and past enforcement efforts.
