Class C airspace over Long Beach not justified – AOPA

The Los Angeles area contains some of the most complex and congested airspace in the country. Establishing new controlled airspace in the midst of it may harm, not help, flight safety in the area, the FAA said in a 1991 Federal Register notice. Nearly 20 years later, the FAA is again attempting to establish Class C airspace to improve safety.
