  • NextGen is a true transformation of aviation to ensure the freedom to: travel safely to where you want to go, the health of the economy, and the well-being of the environment.” NextGen is our future and it has already started. Bottom line – you need to become familiar with NextGen so that you too are part of our future!

Next Gen Overview - FAA Report Next Gen Overview - FAA Report Presentation Transcript

  • Delivering NextGen Next Generation Air Transportation System Federal Aviation Administration Victoria Cox, FAA ATO Senior Vice President for NextGen & Operations Planning November 2008
  • The Current System is not Performing Adequately
    • Demand remains high in already congested markets
    • Our air traffic system does not utilize current available technologies to:
      • Support aviation’s role in the national economy
      • Address aviation’s environmental impact
    Airport Delays Worsen By MATTHEW L. WALD July 10, 2008 … delays at Newark Liberty and La Guardia are worse. Transportation boss tasked to ensure passengers treated fairly Travel woes continue: ‘We’ve got a problem’
  • Impact of Aviation on the U.S. Economy
    • Aviation accounts for:
      • 11 million aviation-related jobs
      • $1.2 trillion in economic activity
      • 5.6 Percent Contribution to Gross Domestic Product
      • Adds $61 Billion to the US Trade Balance
    The Aviation Industry contributes to the U.S. Economy and International Trade
  • Environmental Impact Trends show that environmental impacts from aircraft noise and emissions will be a critical constraint on airspace capacity and flexibility -- unless managed & mitigated Increased efficiency with NextGen will lead to reduced fuel consumption, resulting in lower carbon emissions. 100 90 80 70
  • NextGen: Improving Efficiency and Capacity Ground-based Navigation and Surveillance Air Traffic Control Communications By Voice Disconnected Information Systems Air Traffic “Control” Fragmented Weather Forecasting Airport Operations Limited By Visibility Conditions Forensic Safety Systems Satellite-based Navigation and Surveillance Routine Information Sent Digitally Information More Readily Accessible Air Traffic “Management” Forecasts Embedded into Decisions Operations Continue Into Lower Visibility Conditions Prognostic Safety Systems The transition to NextGen has already begun. Today’s National Airspace System NextGen
    • Single project… It is the integration of many projects, concepts, and technologies.
    • Program plan… It is the integration of many program plans to deliver new service capabilities to meet increasing demand.
    • New system… It is the integration of new systems, new procedures, new aircraft performance capabilities, renewable fuels, new supporting infrastructure, and a new way to do business as the Air Transportation System.
    NextGen is more than just a…
  • NextGen is more than just the FAA
    • Joint Planning Development Office (JPDO) was created via FAA Reauthorization Act, Vision 100, to collectively support development of NextGen
    • Partner agencies in the JPDO are DoT, FAA, NASA, DHS, DoD, and DoC
  • NextGen will…
      • Increase safety
      • Improve access
      • Reduce emissions & noise
      • Allow planes to fly optimal flight paths
      • Improve fuel consumption
      • Increase airport capacity
      • Maximize airspace capacity
      • Increase Surface efficiency

  • NextGen Relies on Capability in the Aircraft
    • NextGen aircraft will have more onboard capabilities requiring associated crew training for
      • Precision navigation
      • Merging and spacing
      • Four-dimensional trajectories
    Represents a major change in the aircraft’s role and equipage requirements FAA & operator investment required to realize NextGen benefits
  • NextGen Relies on New Technology and Fuels
    • NextGen aircraft will need improved noise and emissions performance and fuels that reduce air quality and climate impacts.
    Represents a major change in FAA’s role in catalyzing technology development Energy
  • Building Towards the Mid-Term … delivering capabilities today
    • Building the foundation for NextGen by targeted near-term implementations
      • Maximizing the use of existing capabilities already in the aircraft
    • Building enhancements to the aging infrastructure
    • Exploring concepts critical to building additional capabilities
    • Utilizing demonstrations to validate investment decisions
    Implementing NextGen capabilities requires the integration of multiple activities
  • Near & Mid-Term Benefits
    • Increased safety, capacity and efficiency over the Gulf of Mexico
    • Reduced fuel burn and emissions throughout the National Airspace System
    • Minimized delays in reduced visibility
    • Improved surface management
    • Reduced noise and emissions at airports
    • More efficient use of airspace over cities with multiple airports
  • FY 2009 is a Pivotal Year for NextGen
    • The President’s FY09 budget request increases funding for the NextGen portfolio from $230.8 million in FY08 to $688.3 million in FY09 - an increase of 198%.
    • Increased investment enables delivery of significant NextGen capabilities by 2012
  • NextGen…
    • Provides capacity to meet customer demand
    • Offers increased efficiency & flexibility to operators
    • Saves fuel
    • Improves environmental performance with reduced emissions & noise
    Significant NextGen deliverables over the next 4 years support this critical sector of the US economy … Transforming the Air Transportation System
