NextGen Routing Will Soon Provide Relief for East Coast Operators

Dec. 9, 2019

Business aircraft pilots tired of delays and reroutes along the East Coast of the U.S. will soon find relief from the congestion and delays that are common in the region. The FAA’s Northeast Corridor Atlantic Coast Routes (NEC ACR) optimization project enables greater use of offshore route options, particularly during severe weather; reducing offshore vectoring and holds and better segregating overflight traffic from busy arrival and departure corridors into New York and Washington, DC. For example, among these changes is the creation of a new ‘super ultra-high’ ATC sector over Washington, DC that will reduce airspace restrictions and closures for traffic crossing the area above FL400.

In this episode of NBAA Flight Plan, host Rob Finfrock speaks with:

  • Vicki Turner and Joseph Tinsley, FAA co-leads for optimization efforts
  • Ernie Stellings, senior manager, NBAA air Traffic Services
  • NBAA Flight Plan is sponsored by Schedaero, the software that elevates your flight operations.
