NYC Area Airspace Redesign

Tue Jun 21, 2005 11:01 am

In a thread about a 4th NYC area airport, one of the participants pointed us to a very interesting set of slides:

http://www.faa.gov/programs/oep/v7/schedule/OEP%2010-year%20schedule_files/frame.htm

One of the slides features a "redesign of the NJ/NY/PHL airspace" project.

Anybody want to speculate on exactly how the airspace, specifically in the NYC area, will be redesigned?

It seems to me that just from a real estate perspective, things run pretty tight at the moment regarding approach and departure routes for EWR, JFK and LGA.

Just how could a redesign be done to make things run more efficiently (and presumably, eliminate the need for ground stops)?
