Help With ATC Lingo Please?

Wed Aug 15, 2007 6:21 am

Will somebody tell me what this means for DCA from the FAA delays page?

General Departure Delays: Due to TM Initiatives:ESP:VOL:EnRoute, traffic is experiencing Gate Hold and Taxi delays between 31 minutes and 45 minutes in length and increasing.

Thanks

Welcome to A.net!

Just a guess, but TM means Time Management?

You're better off asking this question in the TECH/OPS forum, you'll get an accurate reply in a faster amount of time than here in Civ-Av.
I'd take the awe of understanding over the awe of ignorance any day.

I *think* that it says "Due to traffic management initiatives, especially volume enroute, traffic is experiencing gate hold and taxi delays between 31 and 45 minutes in length and increasing.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong  Smile

Traffic Management. VOL is volume, but I'm not sure what ESP means.

This is the first time I can say I miss the abbreviation section in my Gleim book. I left it at school.  banghead 

I wanna say its "especially", I've seen it before, just not 100% sure...

Enroute Sequencing Program, basically a wheel-up time to slot you into the flow.

I guess I replied earlier to the dupe thread!
