Figure 1: Flight Profile in the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) Environment Envisioned by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)

UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABILITY OFFICE
Aviation industry stakeholders GAO interviewed described various factors that may affect the interoperability of the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen)—a complex, long-term initiative to modernize the U.S. air-traffic management (ATM) system—with other countries’ ATM modernization efforts. Interoperability allows different ATM systems and procedures to accept and use each other’s information and services for technical or operational purposes…GAO recommends that FAA conduct a comprehensive assessment of risks to NextGen’s global interoperability and identify how this information will be used to mitigate risks and prioritize resources. In responding to a draft of the report, FAA agreed with the recommendations and discussed some of its ongoing risk assessment activities.

The Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) is a critical infrastructure project that will transform the Nation’s air traffic management from ground-based radar to a satellite-based system with the goals of improving safety, meeting the expected demands for increased capacity, and improving efficiency. It is also FAA’s most complex modernization effort to date and will require multibillion-dollar investments from both the Federal Government and airspace users to successfully implement. However, since its inception a decade ago, FAA’s progress in implementing NextGen has not met the expectations of Congress and industry stakeholders, and key modernization efforts have experienced significant cost increases and schedule delays.

US Airline Industry 2013

Thursday, January 17th, 2013

BOYD GROUP INTERNATIONAL
Fodder for the gullible. Despite slow/no growth in airline flights, anywhere between 15% and 20% of flights still arrive 15 minutes or more off the already ATC-padded carrier schedules. Every month. We can depend on it. Go back five years. Or ten years. Compare what the FAA was saying then, with what it’s saying now about fixing the air traffic control system. It’s a time warp with today’s glowing projections of progress. Plan on more of the same in 2013.
