FAA explores the diverse airspace at St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport


The FAA’s From the Flight Deck video series uses cockpit-mounted cameras to capture runway and taxiway footage and combines them with diagrams and visual graphics to clearly identify hot spots and other safety-sensitive items.

St Pete-Clearwater International (PIE) is a medium sized, multi-use airport located in Clearwater, Florida, just north of St. Petersburg.

The airport is situated nine miles southwest of Tampa International, nine miles northwest of MacDill Air Force Base, and nine miles north-northwest of Albert Whitted airport.

The airport’s Class Delta airspace underlies the Tampa Class Bravo.

Pilots inbound to St. Pete-Clearwater need to be familiar with the rules and regulations for operating in this diverse airspace environment.

This ongoing series is full of useful videos and safety information covering everything from knowing when and where to hold short to exploring wrong surface landings at airports with parallel runways with staggered thresholds.
