Why we need to redesign airspace

Why We Need to Redesign Airspace

  • Routinely, the New York and Philadelphia metropolitan areas airports are among the top 10 delayed

  • Lack of alternate routes closes off airspace in cases of severe weather

  • Multiple facilities fragment arrival and departure corridors

  • Complexity and congestion continue to be issues even with post-September 11 downturn


Implementation overview

Implementation Overview

  • Implementation Plan began developed immediately following the signing of Record of Decision (September 5, 2007).

  • Initial changes to airspace were implemented on December 19, 2007

  • Implementation approach was segregated into four stages in the ROD

  • Each stage will take from 12 to 18 months and stages will overlap


Roma or r oute o ptimization and m itigation a nalysis

ROMA (…or Route Optimization and Mitigation Analysis)

Considers all headings within an identified range

Evaluates noise impact for every possible combination of headings

Identifies exact headings for minimal impact

Motivation for westgate expansion

Motivation for Westgate Expansion

KEY ISSUES WITH CURRENT WESTGATE

ELIOT overload – currentlyserves 3 airways and BRNAN

PARKE complexity – climbingand descending aircraft

BIGGY complexity – climbingand descending aircraft

RBV crossing traffic – increased volume from JFK

IMPACTS

Westgate a “chokepoint” during peak demand

Passback of Miles-in-trail (MIT) restrictions to NY metro airports

Potential adverse impact on PCT arrivals

Westgate expansion

Westgate Expansion

REROUTE / REALIGN RBV DEPARTURES

Realign RBV departure route(s)

Reduce Impact of Crossing Traffic from RBV

“Wrap” JFK departures over Westgate fixes

ADDITIONAL WESTGATE FIXES

Shift J60/J64 traffic to the west

Decrease Traffic Load on ELIOT

Shift J6 traffic to the west

Split PARKE Departures from IAD Arrivals

INTRODUCE TERMINAL SEPARATIONS

Shift IAD arrivals between PARKE and ELIOT

Split BIGGY Departures from BWI/DCA Arrivals

Shift DCA/BWI arrivals between BIGGY and LANNA


Next steps

Next Steps

TO-DO LIST

  • Route design

  • Sector boundary

Realign RBV Transition Routes

  • Fix location

  • Sector boundary & traffic impacts

  • Use of new fix

Add One New Departure Fix

Terminal HITL evaluation

  • N90 / ZNY resectorization

  • Separation standards in integrated airspace

Expand Use of Terminal Separation Rules

  • Route design

  • Sector boundary redesign

  • Runway use

“Wrap” JFK Departures

N90 / ZNY Resectorization

  • Feasibility analysis

  • Design refinement

Addition of Second New Departure Fix


Key elements of stage 2 4 1 2008 10 1 2009

Key Elements of Stage 2 (4/1/2008 – 10/1/2009)

Relocate and Expand West Airways

Redesign NYNJPHL West Corridor

ZNY HITL – June 2008; N90 HITL Oct 2008; Combined HITL Feb 2009

Apply Altitude Restriction on JFK En Route Arrivals for High and Low Capacities

JFK Improvements

Reroute ISP Arrivals over LENDY

Reroute JFK Europe Arrivals via ROBER

Reroute Traffic to New West Airways

Reroute Traffic to Existing West Airways

Reconfigure PHL

Reconfigure and Reroute Departures

Reroute Arrival Streams

Additional Dispersal Headings for RWY 09 and RWY 27


Stage 2 minor airspace realignment

West Departure Area:

Current boundary

dissolves and airspace

expands to combine

parts of ZNY and N90

Liberty

ZBW Boundary Modification:

ZBW boundary shifts to

support Stage 3 airspace

realignment to the

Northgate

PHL Terminal Expansion:

PHL terminal absorbs

parts of ZDC and ZNY to

accommodate new

arrival and departure

routes

Stage 2: Minor Airspace Realignment


Key elements of stage 3 5 11 2010 11 9 2011

Key Elements of Stage 3 (5/11/2010 – 11/9/2011)

Relocate and Expand North Airways

Redesign NYNJPHL North Corridor (ZNY, N90)

Reroute Northbound PCT Departure Routes

Redistribute Some ZNY Northgate Departures to ZNY Westgate

Redistribute Traffic on New North Routes

Facilitating Stage 4 Elements

Apply Altitude Restriction on LGA to Separate NY and PHL Traffic

Provide Arrival Coordination for Traffic Flow Management

Apply Terminal Separation Rules (allowing less stacking and MIT)

Additional MXE Departure Fix

Arrival Shift LGA and EWR

Facility Boundary Adjustments at ZNY, ZBW, ZDC, N90

Implement 3rd Dispersal Heading at EWR


Stage 3 major airspace realignment

North Arrival Area:

Combines parts of ZBW, ZNY and

N90 to support shift in North arrivals

in Stage 4

North Departure Area:

Combines parts of ZNY

and N90 to support

expanded Northgate

departures

South Arrival/Departure Area:

Combines parts of ZDC

and N90 into PHL TRACON

to support full integration

of Stage 4

East Departure Area:

Combines parts of ZBW

and N90 to support full

integration of Stage 4

Stage 3: Major Airspace Realignment


Key elements of stage 4 3 10 2011 9 7 2012

Key Elements of Stage 4 (3/10/2011 – 9/7/2012)

Relocate and Expand South Airways

Redistribute Traffic on New South Routes

Redesign NYNJPHL South Corridor

Apply Traffic Flow Management Rules for South Airway

Relocate and Expand East Airways

Redesign NYNJPHL East Corridor

Redistribute Traffic on New East Routes

East Airway Apply Traffic Flow Management Rules

Align TEB and MMU Departure Gates feeding EWR Departures

Change Altitude Restrictions

Create Continuous Decent Approach Procedures

All other Locations Apply Traffic Flow Management Rules


Stage 4 full airspace integration

Full Airspace Integration:

Stage 4 realizes the full

integration of airspace –

N90 with parts of ZNY,

ZDC, and ZBW

Stage 4: Full Airspace Integration


Next steps1

Next Steps

  • Continue to address and resolve legal and political challenges

  • Written Reevaluation with respect to new Information

  • Respond to GAO Recommendations – Report due July 31, 2008

  • Pending litigation – Extension Granted for Briefing Schedule

  • Continue safety assessment of all changes

  • Facilitate an improved collaborative relationship with all stakeholders

  • Develop Airspace design activities with adjacent facilities

    that enhance the benefits of integration
