The National Airspace System (NAS) is continuously being updated and changed in order to improve system efficiency. NBAA supports the continued transition to a future aviation system that is satellite-based rather than today’s ground-based navigation system, and will continue to play an active role representing the needs of general aviation in the technical and regulatory evolution of a Next Generation (NextGen) aviation system.

In addition to these changes, there are certain areas of the NAS where special attention is warranted and where special procedures are required due to persistent traffic volume issues, seasonal increases in volume, or other factors.
