The safety of our skies has been entrusted to the same analog-based equipment for nearly 80 years. In the early 1990s, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposed changes that would transition the air-traffic control (ATC) infrastructure from the aging analog-based radar to today's affordable, highly accurate digital terrestrial and satellite systems.
Collectively referred to as Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen), these mandated initiatives will provide ATC with greater accuracy when tracking air traffic. The NextGen system will reap huge benefits for operators in safety and time.
Duncan Aviation prides itself on innovation and communication and we have developed this page as a collection point for resources and information about the NextGen initiative, including:
